  1. West Brom - Chelsea

    Bookmark this page: https://www.reddit.com/r/footballhighlights/ It has highlights and full games without spoilers. It also has very quick uploads of MOTD and other special shows.
  2. 27. Andreas Christensen

    Another quiet yet top performance from him. I don't really see what Luiz brings that Andreas doesn't. Luiz may be better going forward, but the central sweeper (so to speak) doesn't go forward much anyway, his main role in possession is simple distribution and he does that brilliantly. Two clean sheets in a row with him in the heart of our defence.
  3. 3. Marcos Alonso

    What a great goal he scored I thought. Volley from such a tight angle, even the best strikers would miss from there more often than not. And his overall performance was also much better I thought, the resting period did well for him.
  4. Ruben Loftus-Cheek

    I fear that the hype will eat him up. Happens 99% of the time - a young English talent rises with the help of the media, thinks he made it big, and falls off. This is why only the mentally strong and dedicated really make it, we shall see if he's up for it and will not only manage to keep consistency throughout several seasons, but improve as well and improve he must.
  5. Ethan Ampadu

    Must admit he is impressive for a 17yo, but you're grossly jumping the gun here, almost as bad as proclaiming Kakuta to be the next Messi.
  6. 22. Willian

    Pretty much described Willian's playing style.
  7. "Andreas Christensen has all the qualities that could make him the ideal candidate for Chelsea captain." I would like the author to name all those qualities and also what makes Andreas a better or more worthy choice than, say, Azpilicueta. @Jim
  8. Ruben Loftus-Cheek

  9. Ruben Loftus-Cheek

    The hype is strong with this one.
  10. 10. Eden Hazard

    Why are you asking as if somebody knew?
  11. 22. Willian

    Damn, I'd take Fernandinho in a heartbeat. Him and Kante together would be a sight to behold I think.
  12. The Board

    Director Marina Granovskaia, who is primarily in charge of transfer negotiations, is taking over his duties for the time being. That means the scouting network and academy director Neil Bath is reporting directly to her. Great, proper football people reporting to a bureaucrat who has no clue about that field. Sounds just like how real life works for common folk.
  13. The Conte Thread

    Still better than Jose going personal mocking his baldness.
  14. The Conte Thread

    Antonio's hairdryer treatment working yet again, the team responded magnificently. Guy must be a very good motivator. even after having fallen out with two big characters (Costa, Luiz), others are still responding.
  15. 24. Gary Cahill

    Was very good today. Everybody was, but credit where it's due. Didn't let anything past him and didn't concede any mistakes iirc.
  16. 7. N'Golo Kante

    Think he is our most important player. The type of rare player who makes the whole team better, not only his position, but we are better in every phase of the game when he is playing. We are very lucky to have him and Hazard, two among the best, we need to build around them.
  17. 28. César Azpilicueta

    Azpi is Eriksen-level dangerous in that position, always seems to be accurate from there.
  18. 14. Tiemoue Bakayoko

    Yeah, he was much better than in previous few games. Made his presence felt this time, finishing is secondary for him but would be great if he could improve on that.
  19. 27. Andreas Christensen

    Guy's a superstar! Such a big fan of his, so cool and composed on the ball and solid at the back. To permanently replace Luiz?
  20. Chelsea 1-0 Man Utd

  21. Chelsea 1-0 Man Utd

    Morata just choked there... wtf... JUST SHOOT!
  22. Chelsea 1-0 Man Utd

    How the hell is Azpi winning aerial battles against Lukaku and Fellaini?
  23. The Conte Thread

    This bit is interesting: In Italy this week Conte had apparently been willing to accommodate his players’ plea for Cahill to operate on the right of the back three, a move they thought might stabilise the collective rearguard. As it turned out, Chelsea conceded after 38 seconds, were never secure and the captain, crestfallen, was hauled from the fray before the hour-mark. Questions on that tactical move prompted rather cryptic answers on Friday. “Those who must understand [do] understand,” said Conte. “He’s very good playing on the left. We won a league with Cahill in this position. I don’t understand why we have to try again to put him on the right but sometimes can happen a misunderstanding.”

    Terrible WB or not, he's still a far superior defender. Sent from my Nexus 5X using Tapatalk
