Yup, Zouma is a liability in possession. And I'm wondering if it's necessary to play 3-4-3 all the time even when it clearly isn't working and players are being fitted to the formation rather than the other way around. And because we have 3 players back all the time we look very scarce in attack, it's like we're playing Barca when comparing how many bodies Wolves commit forward and how many we do. When Azpi is playing it isn't that noticeable because he pushes forward all the time, Zouma is incapable of that and Ake is too fresh to draw any conclusions yet. Hopefully we go with a back 4 in the 2nd half or if we're not gonna change the formation, then Azpi should be brought on to balance our incompetence on the ball.

Exactly, but for now it is  a system failure....so many bad passes. It is mind boggling....

We seem to be lacking motivation as well. Lots of players waiting for the ball to arrive to them instead of making movements.

Terry is past it completely, sadly, Zouma has almost zero composure or technical ability on the ball, and Aké just isn't quite up to speed yet. Pedro playing like a fish out of water as a wingback.

This game just goes to show you how dependent we are on Luiz and Azpi. Also shows we 100% need to target another CB with ability in the summer.

It's seems it's only me and you that have noticed our biggest problem in this game. It just goes to show that even a championship team press can render non-ball playing centrebacks hopeless. 

It's actually easy to spot though, one just needs to follow Fabregas and Nate and see where they're positioning themselves. They've spent most of time in our own half or close to it, even when we've attacked.

Zouma has no place in a team in which 2 of 3 CBs have to be de facto playmakers.

It goes to show we need some upgrades and these lads need a big boot up the arse.

I seriously don't understand that starting line-up. You can't just replace your whole defence (GK + 3 CBs + 2 DMFs) and expect a result. I get that Conte wants to rotate, but at least do it balanced. Don't just leave four first team players in the attack and replace the rest.

It is but half of us on here want to talk about Costa and Hazard as if that's the main issue when it clearly is not. <_<

Could it be : lets do the PL and fuck everything else? Which would imply a very tight focus?

Games like these where Eden needs to step up and take players on. It's not enough to wait for the opposition to foul you.

Hazard is our best player and once he has games like this when he isn't in the mood to dribble, he offers nothing else. Costa can't win any headers and is terrible with his ball control yet again. Zouma is having a horrible passing day at the back, even worse than Cahill. 

We need Pedro in attack and Willian should be sent back to wing-back, at least Pedro can score if he's in the attack. 

We need Azpi in defence immediately too to help our passing from the back, it's been dreadful

Many of you are taking about Zouma. Can't you see Terry? He is the one who is to do what Luiz does but he is so afraid to make a mistake so he gets the ball and dumps the pressure on Ake or Zouma

Terry is past it and in the twilight of his career, we all know it so there's no point criticizing him. Zouma on the other hand is one for the future and it makes more sense to follow his performances/development more closely.

Thinks its more likely complacency and over-confidence...
