    I would rather players get played on merit rather than a clause. Up to him to step up his game but worrying that again in their cup game a couple weeks ago, he was left out the squad totally and again on the weekend an unused sub.
  2. 10. Eden Hazard

    Was a joy to watch yesterday. What a performance
  3. 70. Callum Hudson-Odoi

    Martial is much more built, quite muscular/stocky player with CHO on the slim side but brilliant balance. With age, I assume he will build more muscle. But yes, the playing styles are hugely similar.
  4. Southampton - Chelsea

    And Willian instead of Morata?... Christensen will come in for Cahill to I assume. I also think Fabregas will start, seeing as he was left out on Thursday.
  5. 33. Emerson Palmieri

    He defo should of been given more chances. He typifies the qualities you want in a LWB. Fast, direct, strong, good defensively judging by tonight and ability to constantly make runs in behind. Thought he was very good tonight. I am a fan of Alonso but don't think he will be a miss. In open play, think Emerson gives us much more of an offensive threat. Especially if he can link up with Hazard.
  6. 70. Callum Hudson-Odoi

    What a talent this player is. Was watching the highlights of our FAYC second leg with Birmingham. Man, this guy is on another level. Was literally Messi-like on the pitch. His second goal was a magnificent solo goal. If anyone could post a link, would be appreciated. May be able to view it on Chelsea youth twitter page. Still only 17, has featured for the first team in few games this season and looks the real deal. Will be interesting to see if he can get more minutes/possible start in final games towards end of season. Magnificent talent
  7. 9. Álvaro Morata

    You mean 11 goals in the league. All together 14 goals and 6 assists in all competitions. Hopefully can get to the 20 goal mark. Not impossible.
  8. 22. Willian

    Mourinho would love a player like Willian. He would be exactly what he needs to balance his team but hopefully we are not that stupid again. I like Martial but instead of Willian, no thanks. He needs a new club though to kickstart his career as he is stagnating at United. He is also best from the LW while Willian can play effectively from LW and RW. Let's see what happens with likes of Hazard first though because maybe we can tempt United with offer for Martial but no swap deal for Willian. Must be crazy!
  9. Kenedy

    Have always liked him. He has only just turned 22 and is impressing in the PL. He has a good burst of pace, very powerful, has good dribbling ability and has good technique too. His strength definitely makes him suited for PL football. Just needs to improve on stamina side of things which will come with time but there is a lot more to come from him. On the weekend, received rave reviews for his performance at Leicester. Was a constant threat before he was subbed off.
  10. Tammy Abraham

    Needed that goal. That was his first in the league for ages. Big goal that could turn out to be too.
  11. Charly Musonda Jr.

    Why did we not call back Baker anyway? What a waste of a loan. Majority of times, he has not even been getting in the squad.
  12. Charly Musonda Jr.

    5th league game in a row he has been an unused sub. BR has not even bothered to bring him on. That is worrying. I thought he was going to tear up this league. Can't even get a game. The last time he started a game was on the 18th of February against St Johnstone.
  13. Mauro Icardi

    I wouldn't describe Kane as injury prone. Really, he has maybe a spell where he gets a serious injury and is usually back within a month, however apart from that seems to generally play almost every game. Aguero, despite being injured at the moment, has coped quite well with injuries this season but is a definition of injury prone.
  14. 30. David Luiz

    I mean calmness on the ball. He is not scared to carry the ball out. But people here are fickle. I like Christensen a lot but people saw him for a few games and labelled him almost as the second coming of Christ without seeing him play a whole length of games for us. That is not taking anything away from him but it just shows that Luiz was not the sole cause for our mistakes as some were suggesting.
  15. 30. David Luiz

    Conte doesn't want him in the XI, so his absence makes little difference. AC certainly isn't ready to be a starter He is injured. I am sure if he was fit, Conte would see sense and realise we could do with his experience and presence on the pitch.
  16. Chelsea 1-3 Spurs

    Devastating result but the result represents the gap in quality. They have an identity and know how to play and hard to say but they are on another level to us right now. Although Azpi, Christensen and Rudiger are good defenders, when they all play in one defence, there is a lack of physicality and can be bullied easily by other teams. They are quite on the lightweight side. Espec Azpi and Christensen. You just think what would have been, if Moses had cleared that ball to Willian but he fucked up and Spurs took over from there. It is worrying though how we play well against bigger teams for about half hour then completely get undone. Arsenal, United, Spurs, Roma... the team just seems to lack the sharpness over 90 mins. This loss has all but diminished any hope of us getting into top 4, however it is the results against much inferior teams that have let us down and has given us virtually no chance of reaching the top 4. So much work needs to be done over the summer.
  17. 30. David Luiz

    You know the saying: "you don't know what you have until it's gone". He was slated when playing for us this season but you can see how much we have missed him. Without him their is the lack of physical presence and calmness he offers. The defence looks so vulnerable and physically inept sometimes without him. Just a shame it is too late now.
  18. Lewis Baker

    Surprised there is no thread for Baker on the youth team profiles. 2nd year scholar and is a permanent fixture in the U21 side. Excellent with both feet, like Cazorla. Has scored quite a few this season. Highly regarded at the club and a very versatile player. Should be one for the future. A loan move beckons for him soon I reckon. Has improved massively this season and has a made a step up to reserve team football. You will not know which foot he is
  19. Charly Musonda Jr.

    Just shows how fickle people are. I remember people claiming he is better than Willian. People love to live in the spur of the moment. As soon as Willian drops off a bit, your going to get ridiculous comments again.
  20. Charly Musonda Jr.

    Been an unused sub for their last 3 league games smh. Not good at all and not what I expected. Was expecting him to show what he is really about. Interesting to see where he is playing next season.
  21. 13. Thibaut Courtois

    How many easy goals he lets in that are driven in low is ridiculous on another level. DDG in goal for us and this game is probably 0-0. This is not just a one off game too. He lets in low-driven goals way too easily. Tonight, Van Aanholt's goal on Saturday. This has been happening past few seasons. Top keeper but his technical ability and being beaten with low driven efforts and nutmegs need to improve.
  22. Barcelona 3-0 Chelsea

    He defo did not need to go to ground. That cost us.
  23. Barcelona 3-0 Chelsea

    Christensen was so naïve for that second goal. Why he dived on the floor, I don't know. If he stayed on his feet, he most likely would of got to that ball or at least prevented Messi from going through.
  24. 22. Willian

    You only have to go back a few pages to see the amount of abuse and write off he get by our own fans! It is ridiculous the lack of loyalty our fans show our players but are quick to ride the wave when a player does well. I have always rated Willian highly and I accept he can be inconsistent but I have always thought he is a vital squad member and a game-changer. But really glad to see him shutting people off who wrote him off. Not only is he scoring, he has been almost unplayable recently. But the lack of loyalty does not surprise me. Luiz was arguably our best defender and the PL best defender last season however because he has not shown the same this season, people have wrote him off too. Everyone pleading for Christensen to stay in the team. Christensen has not been his best in recent matches now your probably going to get some who question his place in the team too. But the comments I have seen on here about Willian were just OTT. Just wish some who have slated him can come and give him credit when it is due. He has pace, acceleration, dribbling ability, excellent balance and brilliant technique. I don't see what there is not to like about him. He will have his off days and there will be more game(s) where he does fall off like any player does, but he certainly has proved that he is a valuable member of a squad and we would be stupid to contemplate selling as some people called for earlier in the thread.
  25. Chelsea 2-1 Crystal Palace

    Morata is struggling however he has not had a start for a while against a team we should be beating comfortably. He is our main man and we need to back him and hope he returns to form. Ideally, this is a game where he will have a lot more chances to score as we are the much better team.
