Abraham on both of our goals yesterday...

https://www.chelseafc.com/en/news/2019/11/03/tammy-abraham-explains-the-preparation-behind-his-and-christian-

Quote

Tammy Abraham, now on 10 goals for the season following his opener in the 2-1 win over Watford, revealed afterwards it came from a move that has been practised on more than one occasion.

The 22-year-old latched onto a carefully crafted ball over the defence from Jorginho to send it first time beyond Ben Foster who generally was the equal of most Chelsea attempts on goal. It was his ninth goal in the Premier League campaign, as many as anyone has scored.

‘We have been working on that in training,’ Abraham explained. ‘He [Jorginho] told me he was going to try it today so I just had to time my run, try to stay onside and get a good finish and that is what I did.

‘We have been doing it a lot in training and we have tried it a few times this season. It has come off a few times and sometimes it hasn’t but I was ready today.’

It was not only by scoring that Abraham made his impact in Saturday evening’s game. He also provided the ball into the middle from which Christian Pulisic scored our second and again, it was a goal developed on the pitches at Cobham.

‘He [Pulisic] is a good player to play with,’ said our young centre-forward. ‘We have been working in training on movement for when he crosses it or I cross it. We know where we are going to be in the box and it is just about getting the ball to him.’

Surprised how watford haven't won yet. They weren't bad! 

Once again 2-0...leave the house and a goes to madness haha. 

Define bad. On the basis of yesterday, it's no wonder they're at the bottom. Had no attacking threat whatsoever, defended all game and needed Ben Foster to prevent us from scoring 5-6 goals. The 2-1 scoreline flatters Watford.

Annoying that Jorginho will be suspended for that Palace game

Anyone else suspect the booking may have been intentional to control the timing of the suspension?

Don’t get me wrong it’s a great run for sure however all PL opponents defeated by us are bottom half teams so don’t get over ourselves just yet.

Yep.

True though they did have the odd chance. Just luckily didn't happen. 

Still only let in 6 more goals then we have. Hopefully we can turn that little issue around. Only 5 teams have a worst against total then we do. But least can score! 

No clue what VAR is about anymore. Sometimes it works.. Sometimes.. Nope

I would have preferred he played against Palace and suspended against City tbh. He will be more useful for the Palace game than the City one.

Nahh this version of Jorgo will do great vs city, Sari's Jorgo yes but the current one is one of the best midfielders in the League.

Why assume Jorginho will certainly get booked if he’s available for Palace’s game? So yeh, I prefer he gets his 5th yellow on City’s game lol. It’s just an unfortunate booking for time wasting last night which I think it was harsh.

We are away from home against a team who majority of game will dominate the game. I agree about him being one of the best midfielders in league right now, however I would have preferred him to be available for Palace instead of City.

Thats a fair point.....but I would love it if we have Jorgo KOva and Kante running that midfield for us vs city.

Just give the ref a 4k device lightweight screen in his pocket he can watch VAR as it happens - simple...

Monitors might as well be with the fans. The usage is dreadful over here.

It's beyond a joke that the referees are not even using the pitchside monitor. This is even worse than when the Bundesliga first introduced VAR.

Egos!

They think they are above it. No wonder no English officials were at the WC last year

It's a joke. We're essentially having more than one referee officiating the match!

Since its been rolled out no one seems to have a clue what's going on. Know its new but shouldn't be so many issues week in week out.
