Just to put into context we played 120 mins in sweltering heat on Wednesday. We gave everything physically and mentally in that game. Liverpool were also pretty poor against Southampton.

We've seen these sort of performances before after Champions league games and this was even worse because the CL games are at least 90 mins. I don't know why some of us are so surprised.

We should have killed the game in the first 20 minutes where we were creating chances and pressed high, Leicester had no clue. After that, we had no clue.

Well Kova and Willian turned out to be hopeless and predictable subs.

Pulisic should have continued and Pedro should have been withdrawn.

The right side with Azpi worries the hell out of me and we were superbly lucky Leicester didn't win this one. But it is still early days and I think we will begin to turn this around

Frank has to take his fair share of the blame for this.

cannot believe he chose ten players who started on Wednesday in Istanbul. Incredibly naive. 

Don't even get me started on that defending. 

Lucky to get a draw here. Yes, we had that blitz of half-chances in the first half, but the only other clear cut chance we made was Kante's shot which was deflected. It's a good job Leicester are absolutely shite in the final third, because a decent team would have put four or five decent through balls behind our defence today.

Edit - one more thing: drop Azpilicueta. I don't think I've ever seen a more inept right-back for us.

There is no excuse for how bad willian played

He'll help us controlling the game. That's a start

Something has to be done about that insane space between backline and attack though. It looked ridiculous

What does Willian have to do with anything? I'm trying to defend Lampard here not Willian. I can see some of the moaners are already giving him a hard time.

Maybe there should have been more rotation in attack. Speaking with the benefit of hindsight though

Another game that SHOULD have been wrapped up inside 20 mins, yet we come away fortunate to get a point.

I'm worried about Norwich at this point

This season... Play like this in the groups and be back to it. Or out out. 

I would so take a third place EL slide over, it is a far better chance at qualifying for the CL next year.
