Very happy with that. Good workout for everyone and solid performances from all bar Izzy and Albatross. Fabregas was the pick of the bunch for me and Ake also impressed. Could have easily ended up with a much bigger scoreline.

I think we have nearly a perfect squad in all honesty.

Boga and Romeu showed that we should keep them around. We don't need another MD - be it a DM, a CM or a B2B. Romeu was great and Marco has been amazing in the last two matches.

I was going to vote for him in the subs MOTM, but Iva was just great as usual. Good cross, good goal disallowed, good runs and tackles. I can't get over people criticizing him playing as a RB. Yeah, he doesn't always have a cross on him, but I like him better there than as a CB... I think it's down to personal preference.

Cesc was my MOTM in general. He was just as amazing as I expected him to be and he's playing where I expect to see him playing as well: in the pivot. He was superb already in the long balls, got his first assist to the Costa goal and dictated the tempo of our game from the deep. It's going to be glorious to have him and Matic there. Too bad it means Marco will get a lot of bench time, but we could play Cesc in the #10 a few times and bring MvG to the pivot. He's been excellent imo.

Costa showed what a finish is. And Torres showed how to Torres it. They were both great in their specialties.

Romeu as I said had a great match and so did Boga. Boga has such a great ball control, first touch and he just goes for it, he doesn't feel shy at all.

I think Ake should also stay with us, he's been very nice in the LB position.

Zouma should have had that goal from the first half, it was a great finish and his header (in the Ivanovic disallowed goal) was also a killer that made the keeper do a miracle there. Another positive from Cesc and Marco in the team: we have set pieces. Cesc was the assister in the Zouma goal disallowed (to Matic) and Marco to Iva's. Both put perfect balls on Matic's and Zouma's heads. So now not only we have players to receive the crosses (Costa and Drogba in the attack and the usual from our defenders in set-pieces) but we also have players that can assist from a set-piece. That's what we've missed the most with Mata departure imo.

Yep, it feels good to talk about this team. This season is going to be mind blowing.

And oh, very happy for Zouma, the only starter stayed on the pitch until the final whistle.

You can just see Jose has big plans for this yound lad.

By the way, his leaping ability is practically CHEATING!
