  1. Chelsea - Leeds

    Nice pass
  2. Chelsea - Leeds

    I have Werner in fantasy and am shocked at how passive and out of sorts he is
  3. Chelsea - Leeds

    Havertz thrives as a central #10, with Mount and Kante both playing pinched defensive roles.
  4. Chelsea - Leeds

    Once Pulisic gets on the left things happen
  5. Chelsea - Leeds

    Werner in a fog
  6. 10. Christian Pulisic

    He wasn’t tentative. That means that if he stays healthy and gets minutes at LW, things will happen. It’s a law of nature. If not, then who knows?
  7. Chelsea 0-0 Spurs

    No flow whatsoever. Just what Jose wanted.
  8. Chelsea 0-0 Spurs

    The opposing midfield is solid. The outside seems more promising to me.
  9. 10. Christian Pulisic

    Then he goes on to employ, subtly, all the stereotypes Marsch detected. But whatever. They all seem happy with each other now, so it’s all good.
  10. Burnley 0-3 Chelsea

    I yeah, that’s a little bit disrespectful. I expect that will motivate Burnley.

    I too would like to see how that middle line fares in a league match, with Mount and Kante as disrupters and protectors of the back line. Neither excels at link up play, but the wingbacks do, and if Havertz comes back to get the ball, that might make for a powerful lineup. The front 4 haven’t had much time together on the pitch yet (with Ziyech right, Pulisic left), so they are still learning each others tendencies. It takes time to gel. Given the crowded schedule, they may not get a lot of time together. Both Werner and Havertz played the entire 90 yesterday, right? Frank may rest them. Or perhaps he is just trying to keep a squad happy, and flexible in terms of lineups in the hope that everybody will learn to play with everybody, in various positions, effectively when all is said and done.
  12. Krasnodar 0-4 Chelsea

    Now that the back line seems more organized, it would nice to see the 4 thoroughbreds get some extended time together on the pitch up top in their proper positions (CP on the left, Havertz behind Werner, Ziyech in the right). They need to get a feel for each other’s runs, and Havertz instinct to wander needs to be able to develop so that it is efficient. To say nothing of getting Chilwell and James comfortable with the their roles vis-a-vis the others in attack. I am hopeful that if that group can understand each other’s tendencies, and learn to complement one another, it could develop into something special. That puts a fair amount of pressure on the wide midfielders to defend. I don’t see how Jorginho can fit, but I never have. Maybe I am missing something. Isn’t it clear yet that Mount is a midfielder, not an attacker? As for formations, pardon my ignorance, but isn’t the difference between a 4-3-3 and a 4-2-3-1 more about where the 2 wide midfielders play as against Havertz?
  13. Krasnodar 0-4 Chelsea

    I too would like to see you Tomori and get more chances. But I also think that Zouma is having a good start to this campaign, a few notable lapses notwithstanding.
  14. Krasnodar 0-4 Chelsea

    I took his Disaster Class on Facebook.
  15. Man United 0-0 Chelsea

    Yeah, I think getting the ball forward will have to come from the wingbacks because the CMs aren’t going to do it. And is the back 3 about getting some people in Rashford’s way?
