  1. Chelsea v Arsenal

    Think this'll be a very open, back and forth match. Both teams under new managers that like to press high. We saw last weekend that Cech looked super nervy under heavy pressing so hopefully we can do the same as City did and force him to make mistakes. I worry about Luiz and Alonso against Özil, Lacazette, Auba, and Mkitaryan. Lots of quick movement and pace which both of them struggle against. If Eden starts I'll be very confident, if not I think we'll struggle going forward.

    Hopefully the strict diet still applies to Eden! 😂 Looking pretty chunky after the WC.
  3. Chelsea v Arsenal

    His distribution was woeful and he nearly scored an own goal playing a pass across his net. He gifted City numerous possessions in dangers areas trying to play out from the back. It's like they were trying to turn Petr into a ball playing sweeper keeper which isn't his forte at all.
  4. Chelsea v Arsenal

    I expect they'll be significantly better next weekend than they were this. Torreira and Lacazette will probably start and they may also bench Cech who looked terrible today. They'll also be in somewhat of a "desperation" mode knowing that they can be 6 points behind their rivals and under pressure already. Their fans have all been preaching about patience and giving Emery loads of time to change things, but if they lose their first two against top 4 rivals to open the season they may go into meltdown within the first two weeks. I wonder if Kovacic will be good to go for this. Unfortunately he probably won't.
  5. Tiemoue Bakayoko

    Hopefully he kills it in Milan so we can wash our hands of him.
  6. 1. Kepa Arrizabalaga

    The bald head makes him look more intimidating!
  7. 1. Kepa Arrizabalaga

    Yeah, it's really weird seeing a smaller keeper in our net after watching Courtois for so long. I take comfort in the fact that DDG and Lloris have become world class in the PL despite being very slight. Kepa looks much more muscular than either of those two so I think he'll be fine. Might run into trouble against a side like United who have lots of giants. Can definitely see Mourinho starting Fellaini against us to stand right next to Kepa on every set piece.
  8. 29. Álvaro Morata

    I thought he was alright. Not great, not poor. He didn't actively make us worse like he often did last season.
  9. 10. Eden Hazard

    Imagine how demoralizing it must be as an opposition player seeing Hazard come on when you're tired having chased us around all second half. 😂😂😂
  10. Huddersfield 0-3 Chelsea

    Complete control in the second half. They could barely get a touch. Notice how Luiz and Alonso looked completely different players in the second half when we held onto the ball? That's how it'll continue to be I think. They'll look super vulnerable when we don't have control. I thought Morata did everything but score today. He was very good overall. Good hold up play, decent when receiving it from a Kepa long ball, few nice runs with the ball, and pressed all day long. Pedro was good, Willian decent but understandably rusty. Barkley better second half. Hazard dribbled their entire team effortlessly when he came on. 😂
  11. Huddersfield 0-3 Chelsea

    BEAUTIFUL CHIP FROM PEDRO!
  12. Huddersfield 0-3 Chelsea

    Significant improvement in this half. Far better on the ball and secure in midfield.
  13. Huddersfield 0-3 Chelsea

    The problem with our pressing is that no one appears to know when to do so. As a consequence, maybe one player presses while others don't and the opponent easily passes through it. You MUST press as a unit in this system or you look foolish.
  14. Huddersfield 0-3 Chelsea

    Yep. Neither of these two can start for us. Getting caught out repeatedly.
  15. Huddersfield 0-3 Chelsea

    It's not what we look like on the ball that's so concerning here. It's the fact that we look clueless without it. Even our best defender Azpi is struggling here.
