I turned off when we went 0-1 down. I'm seeing conflicting ideas. Did CHO and RLC come on and make the team effective or were we still, nonetheless, pretty toothless?

Kante is useless in this sort of game. Might as well play Hazard in that role since the opponent barely goes outside their 16 yard box

Nah kante helped us against counter a couple times

CHO should be a starter henceforth along with Ruben... They were very effective... 

Sarri will never start him thats for sure, expect more of the same like today.

At least a draw. Not great at any conclusion but still better than loss. Also CHO and RLC got some minutes. I liked CHO being more agressive today, he often looked afraid of close challenge, but today he was up for it. Well done.

IMO for these park the bus games, we have to drop Kovacic who offers nothing apart from ball circulation which accumulates to nothing, while defence is still shite. Instead we should play Willian or RLC

Hazard-Higuain-Pedro/CHO

Willian/RLC-Jorginho-Kante

Then we have either CHO or Pedro to add some pace in second half or Kovacic/Barkley for more "stability".

Why stop play for the freekick. Kills the attack, takes few mins off the clock for one shot which rarely goes in

Ii wasnt played for, RLC got smashed

The one thing he does and hew scores!

Its all or nothing.

Well at least it was that...

 

Higuain on the other hand... Did the guy even have more than 2 touches in the second half? 

Not entirely convinced with what he does to keep Giroud out of the side every game.

People keep saying CHO, CHO. Nah, CHO came on and did well but he made a couple bad mistake that led to counter.

Higuaín, again looks out his depth. He just does not seem to have the physical levels for the PL. Bar 2 goals against Huddersfield and one against Fulham, all the other games, he reminds me of Morata. Can't get into the game. It is worrying. He offered nothing at all today. Really needed that win but will take that. But huge blow. Because we have a tough away game next week, where I reckon we may drop points also. So glad Hazard stepped up there because this was another game where you are thinking, this is where you need your big players to stand up and he did exactly that. But big chance blown here.

No spirit, no fight. no passion, no bollox!

our old guard would have nicked it at the end, i put my money on it, Lampard scorcher from outside the box like he did for so many times along the years to bail us out.

I think we must look at this as a point gained, in the grand scheme of things.

We were poor - we looked tired from Thursday night. Wolves were so good, so disciplined. It doesn't matter that they only had one chance, they took it. We were doing the same thing a few years back. 

We had no creation, no spark, no invention today. Kovacic was disgustingly bad, Jorginho was ponderous - until Ruben came on, we didn't have a midfield. The biggest issue is our full-backs - they are so far behind play that it narrows our attack and means we inevitably have to recycle and play backwards in 90% of our attacking plays. 

CHO struggled when he came on; he looked out of his depth in my very humble opinion. 

I have to say that we were lucky today. We didn't create a single proper chance. You only have to look at their goalkeeper barely making a save. Hazard - who was utterly anonymous again - saved the day with the single positive thing he did in 94 minutes. 

If we somehow sneak into the top four by May, Sarri is a genius. The squad is shockingly bad.

I might be naive when saying this..

 

But I honestly think RLC will be restored to the starting 11 in less than two weeks, if his back problems don't crop up again.

He should and will definitely start over Kovacic, and over Barkley as well unless Sarri is rotating.

Lads, if Arsenal and United draw and we win our game in hand, we will go 4th. So not all is lost. We just missed the chance to go 3rd.

fuck all these ifs ifs ifs, we are useless end of, we never take advantage.

Problem is we play Saturday.. Man U don't. So we lose that game in hand advatange over them. 

Plus it's not just about winning the game in hand. Gotta win one's before that's played first. Whenever that is don't think a dates been set?

Dropping my points when we had a chance to close the gap on Spurs in 3rd...imagine my shock!

We are 1 point closer though :ph34r:

He isnt useless, but today on rare fee occassions when he should do his job, he failed. In Wolverhampton goal, he simply stopped tracking Jimenez which was massive wtf moment. Dont know what kind of brainfart he had. That was Alonso/Luiz esque mistake.

Lol I rarely agree with you but today Kovacic was the problem. I have no clue what he is doing. Pedro was fine. His off the ball movement is arguably the best in our team plus defensively he is pretty solid. 

I thought CHO did fine, a couple times he showed his inexperience but he did fine. He need to stay wide and let Azpi come inside so that he can have more space to play one on one. With Ruben on far post, it is going to be a good tandem

he was bad and his inaccurate passes was not others fault.
I guess you weren't watching the game when I tweeted.

I never mentioned anything about his overall performance
