Andreas Christensen defends controversial Chelsea loan system: 'They don't just abandon you... I'm a better and tougher player now' http://www.dailymail.co.uk/sport/football/article-4731906/And

Any argument about Azpi in the bench should stop immediately. He's one of the first names on the team sheet. 

If we fuck up this amazing opportunity to integrate one of the biggest CB talents around there is no hope for us, really.

Nothing on Christensen?

Thought he was very good yesterday atleast for the first hour and seems to be slowly recovering from his massive fall from grace he had 2018. Should be looking at slowly replacing him and Luiz.

Looks like he is back on track. He had some serious confidence issues which caused him stomach problems but his recent performances have been great. I hope next season he will be the nr1 choice with Rüdi.

Sarri sung high praises of him after Brighton game. Said he was motm. Hopefully he gets more minutes in the run in of games left. Think him and Luiz look better with each other than him and Rudiger tbf.

Happy for him, although I think Ake is better then him and would like us to get him back. 

Ake and Andreas will be good for us. 

Think Ake is better physically and thats it. Christensen needs to become more physical, he reads it better than Ake and technically is probably superior although Ake can play LB and DM too(CB best role undoubtedly though).

I really liked how seemingly both Christensen and Luiz were able to switch, and Christensen was there to clean up when Luiz stepped up. Just the routine counters tend to give Luiz and Rudigar a lot of trouble, mainly because both players are super aggressive and poorly communicate with one another.

We’ll have some very busy weeks, next week we’ll play 3 matches(Monday, Thursday and Sunday), Im sure that there will be like 17-18players(if not more) who would play at least one full game.

 

I’m really happy for Andy, I hope we won’t waste him.

I'd pick Zouma over Christensen any day of the week, even if he is average on the ball.

The way Christensen bounced away of Salah is laughable for a CB and he doesnt look anywhere near confident and imposing to be rock solid CB in PL in the near future. 

Only reason I want to give him chance is because he is youth product.

That's fine as preferences go, but players aren't simply better or worse, and the word "solid" means very little to me. Plenty of mediocre "solid" defenders in the PL. Gary Cahill was a solid PL defender who could never play in any sort of possession system.

Both are good young defenders with completely different characteristics. Andreas is really good on the ball for a defender.

Zouma is also playing week in and week out, even when things were not going great. Andreas has hardly played this season. Match fitness makes a huge difference esp around physicality and reading of the game.

He was mugged off last season too under Conte when he was getting a stretch of games.

I know... his form dipped towards the end of the season.

Just disagree with the overuse of better, worse, and "solid." :)
 

Stones was also NOT solid, until he was... and because he's technically gifted, he's an excellent player.

 Bulked up the season after and now he's hardly shoved off the ball. Can't be said about Christensen
