10. Willian

Oscar will send him to the bench easily. Till January at least.

Pre-December Oscar is several levels above. The only skill Willian beats him at is his ball carrying ability but even that's pretty redundant with the 2nd best in the World playing on the left & Pedro proving he's more than adequate for that role out on the opposite flank.

What happened to the player who was absolutely terrific in CL against us and Juventus?

The sooner he is out of our starting 11 the better.

Can't we do the same sunderland did with Dembele?

Converting a shit (i mean unprolific) AM to a good CM ?

You mean Fulham right?

Yeah we should try that indeed.

But overall, I havent seen such poor finishing in a top team for a while. Mou has to do something about it, its either his tactics or the pressure or whatever.

Maybe the players are simply shit, but Willian is dreadful (he never was great finisher tho), Hazard is shit 1on1 with GKs too (he was alot cooler in front of goal for lille), Oscar is actualy very decent in that aspect, hell even Costa lost some of his calmness infront of goal compared to atletico and early chelsea days.

Funny thing is if he scores that, people are suddenly saying he had a great game and should be in the team. His actual performance was good. A shame that the miss has made everyone forget about the way he set that counter attack up for Costa's goal. Fantastic running and picked out Pedro with a fantastic pass who set up Costa for the goal. That was a counter attack at it's best. He bad a bad miss, like I said, not a bad game. I hope he starts against Palace and I reckon Mourinho will go with the same trio again. No reason, not too. First signs of the trio were very promising. Let's see how they fare up against Palace.

Willian is way better than Oacar, not even a question. The goals are coming. He was one of the most important players today smh.

The attitudes you're referring to are so typical of this site. Ever error is put under the microscope and over analysed. I personally thought he looked much better suited to the number 10 role he filled today and thought he contributed well. Terrible goal attempt notwithstanding.

How can you say Willian is better if you haven't seen Oscar play with Pedro yet?

I don't know.....

Willian has definitely more pace and stamina than Oscar, but Oscar always seems to press the ball better than Willian. Always, defensively, chelsea has always looked better when oscar played thru the middle....Willian definitely had to cover for Ivan the striker, but Oscar helped the whole middle of the field in cesc, matic, cahill and terry. Even if Jt is old, we shouldn't be giving up 7 goals in the first 3 games of the season....

All these haters were quiet for 5 months, because Willian was one of our most important and best players from Jan till May.

In one game where he contributes massively to the goal of Costa with his run and pass to Pedro, the people on here only decide to bash him for missing a big chance. Such a joke.

His overall game was good, wins so many 50-50 balls, presses well, seldom loses the ball, carries the ball forward within seconds to start attacks. But hey, only goals and final assists counts here.

We have a good balance at AM now with Pedro, Hazard, Oscar and Willian, its a long season all 4 are going to be needed.

In terms of goals, Willy will probably get 5 at best, but theirs a reason he hasn't been shafted like Cuadrado and Salah.

Played as a #10 today with hardly any defensive duties so no flimsy excuses of blaming his ineffectiveness on Ivanovic can be used today.

Pedro on the other hand played on the same flank & produced a World Class performance (was his debut better than any game Willian has ever had for us) despite putting in more work defensively than any of our other attackers. Notice, Ivanovic wasn't bombing up & down the flank like a maniac because we had a proper winger on that side?

The only forward in all my years of watching Chelsea that's lauded more for his defensive duties than the actual quality he has. You're insane if you think Oscar won't bench him.

Really want to see

Pedro-Oscar-Hazard

Think Oscar can displace Willian. It'll be an interesting battle for that spot behind the striker.

Tekkers on the pass that led to Pedro's shot / assist to Costa golazo.

Shame on the finishing. I say its 50% due to the weather. Still 100 times better than One Cuadrado,

Should of definitely scored but goals will come. He's not particularly a player known for scoring goals so Pedro's capture should ease that burden on him (fancy him to get at least 10 goals) although he does need to start putting the ball in the net a bit more because Willian's undoubtedly a top player and the signs of Pedro-Willian-Hazard looked very promising but there will be games where we'll play terrible and need 1 goal. He was playing with more responsibility last season after January though and I hope he can get back to that performance level.

goals will come, goals will come? will accept it with Willian but not with Oscar...Willian in his first season - 4 goals, Willian in his second season - 2 goals - TWO. Career going to end up the same way as Ramires. Will keep on running tho.

Just rotate both of them, both of them have their strengths and weaknesses...

Hope it will build up a positive competition between them.
