I don't mind him being responsible for some goals conceded here and there (although rarely he's been the only player at fault for a goal conceded), as long as he gets back in previous form offensively. He has had a dip recently which is understandable.

On the subject of his performances lately, he's been carrying an injury which explains a lot.

Exactly, but of course the urban myth that he starts well and fades is a much more popular opinion than the truth...

This guy has been exactly what was missing for so many years.

He should be playing as number 10. Ramires has to start next to matic.

The reason he plays in CM is to help dictate the tempo and play which is important against the smaller sides. Against the bigger teams, away at least, we usually play counterattacking so he's made to defend a lot which isn't one of his strengths. Instead I agree that he should play as a number 10 in those games as he can make use of his excellent final ball which our other AMs don't offer so readily.

Except under Jose, the n10 is the leader of the press and one of the reasons why Chelsea has a good defense overall...

Chelsea’s Spanish midfielder Cesc Fabregas is set to spent three weeks on the sidelines with a thigh injury, missing international games against Belarus and and Germany, as well as key fixtures for the Blues,

The midfielder played for the Blues away to Liverpool at Anfield on Saturday, despite having a niggling injury, and it has been made worse by his inclusion, though his side did run out 2-1 eventual winners, despite going behind to the home side.

He now faces three weeks on the sidelines after tearing a muscle in his thigh, meaning he will miss Spain’s clashes with Belarus and World Champions Germany, as well as Chelsea’s Premier League tie with West Bromwich Albion and their trip to Schalke in the Champions League.

Well our defensive system doesn't look great with Cesc at CM in the big games. It's surely easier for him to press high up the pitch (where his end product is also much better than that of our other AMs) than it is to defend against top teams from the CM position.

I think that as long as we have Diego for the WBA game, we should be fine. lack of cutting edge costed us last season to them, had we finished them off when we were up 1-0 both ties they would never have made it back into the game. However, I can't imagine us playing against teams that park the bus without Cesc.

Cesc doesn't have a direct replacement in the side. Playing with both Ramires and Oscar is the closest we get, but still far from what he delivers. He'll be missed, hopefully we'll handle without him. We did the corresponding fixtures last season.

Matic can play that role.
