But how did we fight well against City for 120min then? 

Maybe we are not ready to press for 90min, but there is zero excuse to be tired straight after halftime.

And if you look the shape of our team, we looked very lively till we conceded 2nd. After that we just collapsed. Its impossible to be tired after 30min for these footballers.

If anything its mental/tactical problem, not physical. 


This is happening most of the time, with exceptions like the 0-0 against City.
We made some useful moves after the 2-2 (the 24th minute) then gradually fizzled out.
It's both physical and mental problem.

Chelsea's biggest problem in the last 5 years.., and the real reason why we have declined from being an elite club to one struggling to stay in the top 5 is the loss of our quality defensive line.

Regardless of the manager, or what kind of striker we have up front, our declining defense continues to cost us points and has steadily become worse over the past 5 years.

This is why we can no longer 'grind' out results.., this is why we are no longer a consistent threat in the big games.

Our back 4 is full of squad players at the moment. The one quality center back we had in Rudiger is now injured, and we have conceded 4 goals in two games since.

More than striker (which is a glaring problem),  I would fix our back 4 before anything.

So this was Chelsea's way of telling the top 4 contenders ... if you can drop points we are not far behind. 

Saw the second half only and it started to and fro to begin which was later park the bus thing from Burnley. What is shock in the entire second half was there wasnt a single shot which threatened the opponent. They played the way they would had against an top opposition but we just dont have any meaningful penetration. What is the use of possession if we cant break down the opposition!!!

Like I mentioned before too, we need a plan B which hasnt been there for a while ... we could have sacrificed a defender/Jorginho to have 2 strikers ... one strong in the air and other to cut lines to open gaps..... Guess Sarri knows better!!!

with burnely I was expected to see alonso instead of emerson, to defend in free kicks 

maybe alonso can't play anymore in SB 

Sorry for CHO injury, I hope it's nothing serious  edit. I just read about the injury :(

he still has a long way to go to be even considered world class, Cech would have won us a ton of points this season. Give me a 24y old 04/05 Cech any day of the week over Kepa

Me i don't reckon kepa at all, Petr is coming next season in an ambassardorial role, get him between the sticks he's still street ahead of this cunt.

Wthat the Arse has done to this great man has been fucking reprehensible, made him a laughing stock.

Kepa not worth the money we paid for him thats for sure, in today's market that is the value of Cech when we bought him, he was 21y old not 24, my bad, only 7 million pounds, huge gulf in class between the 2.

That’s basically what I said: Odoi was having a decent game and Pedro had a poor game. Again, different times. Odoi would be having a good game if he was beating players with all that directness, he wasn’t. So while, I like the quick passing and movement, he wasn’t really influencing the game the way you may be suggesting, imo.

So, you are establishing causation where there is likely none, or very little. That was my point. The odds that odoi would’ve been better than Pedro are very high because we agree that he was. The odds that we’d have won the game had he stayed becomes a little more difficult to establish, and imo aren’t very good.

Even Eden was having trouble crossing the ball today, again, because of the opposition and the way they play.

What are you on about? My whole point is our right side looked meek because we lost CHO and Kante? Of course I can't say we would of won the game, however it would of given our right side more of a threat than Pedro recycling it back to the midfield every time he had the ball.

Don't agree on that.
Kepa was rocketed from point blank range yesterday.
He 's not a Petr Czech but he is better than Courtois who only had his newsagency size body going for him.
