  1. Denis Suarez

    Could be very useful as creative attacking midfielder, especially versus teams that defend deep.
  2. 12. Ruben Loftus-Cheek

    This! Kante, Kovacic and Jorginho seems like a great midfield for games like City but most of the time we would need someone more creative alongside Jorginho and Kante/Kovacic IMO. We need extra creative force versus deep defensive lines
  3. General Transfer Talk

    Was watching a little bit of Real Madrid - Villareal tonight and that kid Chukwueze is really something Great player, great player ...
  4. General Transfer Talk

    Our biggest weakness apart from striker situation is nr. 10 position IMO. City struggled when Silva and KDB were injured, not because Gundogan and Bilva are not good midfielders but because they didn't have a creative force in midfield. Liverpool struggled to break down teams that defended deep when they played Wijnaldum-Milner... Look at their scores when Shaqiri starts in nr. 10 position, they are scoring for fun. They both have much better trio upfront but with lack of support they can't produce miracles. The same with us... Kovacic and Kante are probably worldclass midfielders but they can't create. They are b2b midfielders and they need creative player alongside... Barkley used to be this kind of player at Everton but right now he is "too safe" with backwards and sideways passing. Fabregas would be the best choice right now.. Maybe RLC but I am not sure. Mason Mount seems like an option for this position or James Maddison from Leicester. Someone with that flair... I would even try Hazard there with Odoi in his natural left wing position.
  5. Houssem Aouar

    Tbh Kovacic is more suited to Kante position I think RLC is our only true attacking midfielder that could do damage in final third ...
  6. Chelsea 1-0 Bournemouth

    Oh come on.. I won't blame Hudson Odoi if he leaves.. He should start this kind of games
  7. General Transfer Talk

    What about Thorgan Hazard? Do we have a buy-back clause in his contract? Even if we don't ... I remember that he was talking about returning to Chelsea was his dream He is setting the Bundesliga on fire this season - 8 goals and 6 assists (2.7 key passes per game), 3 more goals in 2 cup games. Also the best rated player in Bundesliga based on whoscored (7.86) But probably our best solution for RW would be a scoring left footed inside forward ... someone like Salah. Nicolas Pepe is having a great season in Ligue 1 - fast, left footed and likes to cut inside at takes a lot of shots.
  8. Júnior Firpo

    But we have Alonso.. Only player in the PL that won't get rotated during christmas period
  9. 7. N'Golo Kante

    We expect too much because of our results in last two months... These are still our first few months of attacking/possession football after years of defending and counter attacking. Guardiola hardly managed to reach TOP 4 in his first season with City and with probably better team than ours. We played a great game against Liverpool and Arsenal, had a great run without defeat and after first loss there is already panic among our fans... Calm the f*ck down please! Sarri has a philosophy, it is the right thing to stick with it! You can't learn attacking football in three months, we will need more than that, maybe even more than one season and few new players (right ones). Kante is a great player but I am afraid that he is a great player in certain system. System that was played under Ranieri, Conte and in system that is played in France - counter attacking. His passing under pressure is not good, so we would suffer with him as defensive midfielder if we want to play the ball out of the defence.
  10. Chelsea 2-0 Fulham

    Kepa Azpi - Rudiger - Christensen - Emerson Kante - Jorginho - Kovacic Hazard - Giroud - Hudson Odoi Is not gonna happen, I know, I know. But I would love to see Morata, Luiz, Willian and Alonso benched.
  11. Chelsea 4-0 PAOK

    Ampadu and Hudson-Odoi have to start!
  12. Eden Hazard

  13. 9. Tammy Abraham

    What? He has 10 goals...
  14. Burnley 0-4 Chelsea

    With Hazard out we will need some extra creativity from our midfield so I would try and start without Kante and with Barkley/RLC - Kovacic midfield duo infront of Jorginho
  15. 12. Ruben Loftus-Cheek

    Barkley and RLC really putting pressure on Kante-Kovacic which is great, just think that only 6 months ago our biggest problem was midfield. We can afford to rotate more and start without Kante against bottom table clubs to add extra creativity.
  16. Chelsea 1-1 Liverpool

    VVD seems to be injured..
  17. Liverpool 1-2 Chelsea

    Bulka Zappa - Christensen - Luiz - Emerson Barkley - Ampadu - RLC Willian - Morata - Odoi Play Odoi and Ampadu from the start, we should focus on league game to stay in touch with Lpool and City. Our main goal is Top4 this year not some second tier cup competition IMO. They will probably rest their wingbacks and Salah-Mane duo. Today victory will mean nothing if we lose on weekend because of tired legs...
  18. Davide Zappacosta

    I think it is now or never for Ola Aina. Make this loan spell count and he can be part of the first team next year as backup RB.
  19. Danny Rose

    Wait... WHAT?
  20. 20. Callum Hudson-Odoi

    Ampadu really looked great yesterday. Him and Christensen made better impression than our 1st? CB pair..
  21. Leon Bailey

  22. Wilfried Zaha

    Throw Fabregas and Alonso in this deal too
  23. Chelsea 0-0 Lyon

    Try some new players in starting eleven and rest everyone for second half. I would start with something like this: Willy Azpi - Christensen - Rudiger - Emerson Drinkwater - Jorginho - RLC Willian - Abraham - Hudson Odoi
  24. Chelsea 0-2 Man City

    What did you expect? A win versus City? At least we try to play our style but we will need one season of ups and downs... Look at City two seasons ago, they also had a lot of trouble to adapt with better players that are more suited to this style of football. We need Michy to step up and some creative midfielder would be nice. Fabregas is poor but we don't have to worry about him when Kante comes back.
  25. Chelsea 0-2 Man City

    We are exposed in midfield.. Fabregas doesn't offer pressure to their midfield so they can play through with ease.
