The only bright spot to today's game. He was cool calm and composed while on the ball and while defending. These are the type of performances that will make Conte trust him and allow him to really be in the mix for the first 11 as the season progresses.

but in reality, im afraid its cahill who got the most appreance than any our good cb. who will get trust and play in almost all important matches.
Sad, i really hope its not true

Whether you love him or hate him Cahill is an established player in this squad. He's going to have to have some real stinkers to get replaced anytime soon. Fortunately, we have plenty of games to play this season so there will be many opportunities for Christensen to continue impressing,

He's intelligent beyond his years. Nearly always makes the correct decisions. He's an absolute diamond who should be starting all of our PL games.

Glad he’s getting minutes still and really like him as a player but there was has been a few concerns for me with him and the rest of the defence recently.

For Everton’s goal he really should do better, judge the flight of the ball after Rudiger tries to deal with it rather than just kind of guess and make an arse of whatever he was trying to do. Even before it Rudiger is all over the place dealing with a high ball, the whole airkick/attempted airkick/withdrawn airkick from AC really just lets Niasse waltz past him (ok yeah sure I know he couldn’t risk fouling him but he can read it better) and then Rudiger and Cahills attempted dealing with ball across box whatever you want to call it is ridiculously poor. 

I know the Roma game was a week or two ago but for Kolarov’s goal he has to go out quicker too/continue going out to him, he seems to be going out to meet him, hesitates, then again decides to close him down and boom it’s a goal albeit a cruel deflection but if he doesn’t stop he gives Kolarov a split second less and perhaps he blocks the shot. Also I think somebody has mentioned for the Dzeko goal, but my take on it was that it really it was lazy more than anything, really poor to not be as tight to someone of that quality, fair enough it’s a 1/10 chance of him finishing from there on his weaker foot (although having seen Dzeko when he played in Bundesliga and in Engiand too he was always exceptional at shooting with both feet) but even then Dzeko’s not even remotely fast, sure his movement is good but Andreas tracks him. Maybe he doesn’t expect him to shoot from that angle but again he could be a lot tighter. Although the team and defence as a whole, was pretty poor that game as well and Christensen was probably the least of our worries in a very mixed performance. 

I know it’s maybe not much to analyse or think about and it could be being picky but there has been more said about less in the past so I think it’s only right to look at those incidents as weak defending. Anyway as the season goes on he will maybe rectify those mistakes in similar situations.  

Other than that his distribution and calmness has been immense along with most of the other aspects of his performances for a guy of his age, albeit he has top level experience but he has made mistakes and will continue to do so because he’s young.

I hope Conte stays for the remainder of his contract so we can continue with a back 3, as the central birth is tailor made for Andreas and I think he can really bring him up another level defensively because I know for from watching Conte’s Juventus and Italy teams, their starting points was a formidable defence and I think that every team regardless of manager, frontline, midfield is useless without a good solid defence (look at Liverpool).

If he is not a guaranteed and regular starter after his phenomenal performance, then I don't know when he is. So calm, so brilliant.

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?

He was excellent today no need for Conte to drop him for that I would keep him in the Line up

I'm really impressed with how well Christensen handles the physical side of the game. He's not very big or strong, but it just doesn't affect. He coped well with the physical beast that is Lukaku. Conte's decision is a testament to how highly he rates this guy and performances like today's make me near certain that Christensen will be in the first 11 every week in a very short time.

Solid, does his job quietly but he does he personify calmness. But there was the last few minutes where Fellaini wrecked havoc by being a nuisance in the box. Overall, I think he and Azpi were superb in making Lukaku look every bit the flat track bully that he is.

Kept Lukaku in their pockets and also nullified the threat of Rashford (who was United's most dangerous player) really well. He's got to start the next game on the basis of this performance.

If he can add the accurate long-ball distribution Luiz often has to his game, he'll be more than great. If he stays just as he is, he'll definitely go down as a great for our club, presuming we keep him in the XI.
