Let's not get carried away with Liverpool, just because of one win against Arsenal and especially against an Arsenal side missing their key defenders. Granted, they don't defend well with their first choice defenders but certainly won't have been as bad as yesterday. If anything, yesterday's game summed up Liverpool under Klopp - look decent going forward but rubbish at the back and one minute they look brilliant, the next absolutely appalling. The only reason people are regarding them as legitimate contenders for anything is because of Klopp but put him aside for one minute and you'll realize they aren't all that great. A few decent players and a whole bunch of average ones in the team. There's not one player you can genuinely say 'he's world class and will walk into any of the best clubs' first XI'.

Hope you're right lol. tbh though Klopp has a good track record, and the scousers actually played quite consistently well for the last ten games or so of last season. Their defeats came when they rested pretty much their whole team as they focused on the europa league Commentator said they scored more PL goals than any team in 2016, and they have just got rid of Skrtel and Kolo, so it just remains to be seen what their two new CBs are like. That moreno is a tool though, let's hope they keep him. Feel free to remind me you're right when they fall apart against a newly promoted team sometime soon hopefully :D

Both Creswell and Lanzini are out for sure, right? That's two of their best and most important players. Ayew can't possibly be fully settled and gelled with his teammates. Payet is said to be not fully recovered yet.

At home, opening day, everyone at 100%, and with all the energy and excitement there's really no excuse not to get the 3 points today. It would be great to get one of the tougher fixtures out of the way this early rather than later in the season when they'd be more settled.

Again, I'm confident in our attack, shitting it about our defense.

Chelsea v West Ham United preview

Dimitri Payet (fitness) is unlikley to start for West Ham but could be a substitute.

Andre Ayew is fit enough to make his debut, if selected.

Manuel Lanzini, Aaron Cresswell and Gokhan Tore (all knee) will be missing.

Kurt Zouma (knee) is out for Chelsea, while Jon Obi Mikel is at the Olympics.

Did you know?

Chelsea are unbeaten in their last 10 Premier League meetings with West Ham United at Stamford Bridge (W7 D3)

and have not lost at home to them in the league since a 3-2 defeat in September 2002.

West Ham were unbeaten against Chelsea in the league last season (W1 D1); the first time that they have achieved this since 2002/03.

Chelsea have won more points than any other Premier League side on the opening weekend of action (51 points).

Diego Costa has scored five goals in seven league appearances for Chelsea in August.

What the managers say

 

Chelsea's Antonio Conte: "Expectations for every team are very high.

After a bad season like last year we are working very hard to be ready to start.

We know this season will be very tough for every team in every game."

(See Conte: We are ready)

 

West Ham manager Slaven Bilic: "We have a good squad – we’ve kept most of the players and we’ve added some players too.

We are expecting them to improve us – we’d expect that even without them because we have been together for a year now and had a good last season."

(See: Slaven Speaks - Chelsea)

Watching Arsenal fall apart was beautiful, but watching the scousers destroy them was a little worrying. Hate to say it but I think they will be up there. Their array of young attacking midfielders is impressive. They just need to grow a back bone and not fall apart against the lesser sides. Totally agree about Mane, looks some player

Liverpool were great for 20 minutes but abysmal for the rest of it, against Koscielny and Mustafi (assuming he signs for them) that would have been a comfortable 3-1 for Arsenal.

They remind me of our teams in the few years pre Roman, on a good day can rip even the best to pieces, but are just far to inconsistent, like our team then they could become a great cup team, but the league isn't happening for them.

A little less than 4 hours to go and I'm already very excited for the match. 

I feel we'll start with a solid victory. Leicester showed that Kante is going to really become a wall in the midfield, so our defence shouldn't be as bad as it was. I hope conte goes with Aina and Dave as FB.

I know Eden will score, I just know it!

COME ON BLUES!

Redemption season. I beg Chelsea to start with a bang. Show me that we at least fight 'til the end for the title. That's all I want. We don't have to win it, but show a lot of passion.

Because we seriously lacked passion last season. And that's why I'm not in a buzzing mood at the moment. I know past is the past, but it's extremely hard to forget the tragedy that we just had. Win this comfortably and hopefully I'll start buzzing.

Their results suggest otherwise...

Big deal if they've scored more goals than anyone else when they can't keep clean sheets. Liverpool geting Skrtel and Toure and it hardly makes a difference when their replacements aren't any better and it's not like Klopp is good at organizing his team defensively. His Dortmund team were good to watch, for instance, but can be prone to conceding stupid goals along the way.
