Its just a seasonal form IMO. We miss these chances every game.

Next season, same players could bury 90% of those same chances. 

There are seasons when nothing goes in and seasons when everything goes in. 

Im glad we at least create chances. Would be worried if we didnt at all.

Yes, it's a good thing that we are at least creating chances but at the end of the day, if we don't put chances away, we aren't going to win anything. It has already cost us wins against Liverpool, Arsenal and even Atletico. Only highlighted the big games in my that previous post and if we add the lesser games in, then the issue becomes even more concerning because we have tended to miss good chances like every single game. I don't expect each of them to be converted but at least 2-3. The fact that Alonso - a LWB - is our third highest goalscorer this season says a lot. We just don't have consistent goalscorers in this team. Pedro, Willian, Hazard, Fabregas all only score every now and then while Morata is increasingly becoming more hit-and-miss. If our main attacking players aren't scoring the goals consistently, then how are we supposed to win games, win trophies? Who do we expect to chip in the goals?

The two most recent additions, Baka-Morata get all the stick, from everyone.
That's bad.
Cause if you don't like Alonso, you had him for two years - find a new Roberto Carlos. If you don't like Cahill, you had him for five years.
Are we sliding downwards ???
If Eden goes to Madrid as touted or if at any rate five years go by and he is sidelined, do we stay in the premier division ?

Without Eden we're Arsenal's level. We have their defence x4. We have Kante + Hazard. But they have wingers, attacking midfielders, strikers, defensive midfielders x2. &, of course, that's without Cazorla. 

I think we're in the midst of our next collapse. Fortunately we've had around 4 of those in 10 years so we know how the cycle goes.

Talking of sorting your feet out and finishing ala Morata, just take a look at Alonso and how he sorts his feet out and caresses that ball in last night....A total thing of beauty.

Feeling the same here but they do have a tough run coming up at the end of this month. United, Liverpool and Arsenal in consecutive games.

Surprise surprise! At least the gap between us and Tottenham remains the same, even after an away game at Arsenal.

Considering we don't play any of the big sides until the end of the February in the league, need to maintain our current good run. Take advantage of the others playing each other between now and then. We have Leicester (h), Brighton (a), Bournemouth (h), Watford (a), West Brom (h) before those back-to-back games at United and City.
