Think a lot of people are criticizing the "usual suspects" just because we drew. 

We currently lead the league in ExpectedGoals against at about 1.79GA/game. And Swansea created jack shit all match before we fell behind 2-1.

Fabregas wasn't needed at all before their equalizer. We had chances to kill off the match, and didn't take them. And that's the greatest takeaway for me. 

As much as I hate to see Matic AND Kante playing aginst the lower teams in the league, we were still able to create more than enough real goal scoring opprotunities.

Remember that Arsenal vs Barca match were Barca took apart Arsenal on a big level for 20 mins but Almunia just kept saving? Probably the best 20 minute period of football ever (certainly in modern era) despite no goal.

I genuinely believe that if we did that for 90 minutes (I know that will never happen just talking hypothetical) yet kept getting denied by keeper, people would come here and rant about our "shit" performance even tho it was the perfect performance and one of the best in history despite it ending 0-0.

I can get the frustration at the result, but their has been a lot of encouraging signs under Antonio so far.

That was amazing. I smile whenever I think about it.

Barca's first half, in the first leg I think, vs City in 14/15 was almost as good. Orgasmic stuff.

Didn't see the full 90 (end of the 2nd half) but yeah. It was frustrating but there's no reason to panic as the team should have won. I still think Cesc needs to come into the team asap though.

Its why I'm hating Pep in the PL, the bloke has reinvented football completely and his philosophy benefits his clubs not only while he's there but years after aswell.

However thankfully I believe we have one of the few managers capable of keeping pace with him over 38 game's, if not this season certainly next when he has had a year with his team plus few more new player's.

I've taken some time to calm down from that joke of a game. I honestly don't know why any bothers when Ref's engineer result so much as they do. Yesterday goalie takes out Rooney blatantly and no penalty.

That guys falls over Thibout and they get a penalty and then that second goal was a disgrace if that Ref couldn't see that and the linesman for that matter can't see that tackle on Gary they shouldn't be in the job.

Imagine if that had been us?

Does ANYONE think that would have stood for us??

Then Fabianski's tackle on Diego was a disgrace and no penalty for us.

Also some of the other tackles by Swansea were awful and it seemed to be us constantly getting booked. 

It was disgusting and sad we couldn't snatch a winner and so gutted to hear John left on crutches :(

I read this online from Sutton who I almost never agree with but today I do 

"...Chelsea deserved to beat Swansea on Sunday and they feel they were robbed of victory by the referee. It is extremely difficult to argue with them.

Yes, Antonio Conte's side will rue the chances they missed in their 2-2 Premier League draw at the Liberty Stadium, but the bottom line is that Andre Marriner cost them two points.

Marriner's decision to allow Swansea's second goal was an absolute shocker. There is no other way of putting it, because Leroy Fer's foul on Chelsea defender Gary Cahill before he scored was as blatant as can be..." Chris Sutton BBC Sport

Andre Marriner... Wow how he is still getting Premier league matches is beyond me. 

This is the same guy that was standing 3yds away from Aguero when he elbowed Reid in the throat. How many things is he gonna miss before the FA demote this wingnut for poor performances??? 

If the last two game weeks aren't deemed unacceptable for the standard of the Premier League I don't know what is! I mean forget the TWO fouls on Cahill that led to the goal, what about Amat's 6 fouls? 3 after already being cautioned? 

The reason the Premier League is considered a tough league has more to do with the standard of refereeing than it does parity amongst the teams in the competition. This is quite simply the worst collection of officials in Europe... All of them have this God complex about them and its becoming more and more obvious that something is fucking rotting at the root. Long before Halsey outed his former employers anyone who is even remotely paying attention can see the corruption that exists in the league. 

Utter bullshit.

West Ham's Adiran's superhuman performance against us about 2 and a half years ago comes to mind. You know, the goalless tie that made Mourinho of all people say that West Ham played 19th century football.

I was at The Bridge that night, in the second half Adrian was right in my line of sight, was time waiting from minute 50.

Honestly am not as down after this 2-2 draw as any from last year. Thought overall, team played well and certainly well enough to win. Kante is a beast and Costa is heart and soul for this club most of the time.

Except for the 5 minute stretch of poor play from Courtois and the ref, we win. It's that simple. Cahill had each leg swept out from under him and no call. Unbelievable. Courtois never looks comfortable and I am not confident with him on long balls in or ones he chases. He takes the wrong path to the ball and panics a lot. He is not Petr Cech. Not yet any way.

Conte seemed VERY disappointed in the post match interview. Really emphasized the need to kill the game off up 1-0. I have zero doubt this will be stressed from here on out. I think all of us that watch every game and post here would agree, this is something we have been missing the past several years. We couldn't kill games off consistently in 2015 when we won the league. 

Heads up mates. Big one at the Bridge Friday. Need all three points. 

Come on you Chelsea!!

 

Very nice and sensible post. I concur we did everything right and it was just down to bad luck. I suppose it makes up for the good luck we had against West Ham and Watford.

I am still not convinced using Matic over Fabregas, especially against the bottom half teams. Hope we win on Friday, its a massive game.

LoL. As long as Arsenal is the opponent, we cant be talking about the best período of football ever. That Arsenal vs Bareclona was embarrassing, because the different in terms of quality of those teams were really HUGE. Arsenal got trashed by so many teams in past years, that I really believe you are overestimating those 20 minutes of football.

The difference between Barca and anyone was huge back then.

I can't really be mad at the ref. Since we was bound to get some bad calls going our way, giving that the first few games we got lucky. i.e with Costa not being sent of. 

Other then that, yeah defense sucks but nothing we never knew. 

If by October the new buys are not in, then totally waste of money, again!

Graham Poll on Talksport slating the ref from yesterday, totally gone to town on him, and rightly so.

On the game and a point I never made....How the fuck did Swansea still end up with 11 men on the field is beyond me....But hey that's the ref again ain't it?

Refs- They clamp down on holding and tell managers and players they will not tolerate abuse, following that they miss a blatant double kick from behind which leads to a goal and they want respect? Fuck right off.

The problem is again and again they're at different levels? Or judgement. Someone's red another's yellow etc and know it's hard and happens quick but the basic bit should least get right..yet time after time not. Yet no one cam say anything as get punished for it.
