Maybe this was more down to instruction from Conte to retreat, Danny not fully upto speed or the opposition becoming fearless in the late stages, maybe all 3, but i feel bringing Drinkwater on to see out the games vs Bournemouth and United hasn't really worked and has invited pressure. Ok not to Jose bringing on Mikel extent but it is something that's needs to be noted as i can imagine this ain't the last time we are bringing Danny on to see games out this season, especially if 352 in the bigun's is now here to stay.

Tired of all this talk mate and it seems that the media and the opposition fans have once again turned your head upside down and made you see whatever they want you to see. Exactly like Mourinho

Will everyone STOP saying we've replaced Matic with Drinkwater, FFS! We replaced Matic with Bakayoko and time will tell if that is an upgrade or not. If we insist on making silly comparisons

Can't believe we spent 36m on Drinkwater. He is the very definition of mediocre.

To be fair, I think it'll depend on who Drinkwater comes on for. If he replaces Bakayoko or even Kante while Fabregas (and Hazard) remains on the pitch, then I don't think it'll be an issue. But if it's for Fabregas, like against United, then it may be one because we'll obviously invite pressure. Need Fabregas/Hazard out there to have some degree of control of matches.

good player - i'd start him with cesc and kante. Put in luiz if we need size (not bakoyoko)

Until yesterday it was anyone but Cesc. Now its anyone but Bakayoko (at least spell his name right). 

Pathetic as usual from our fickle fans.

What's pathetic is pretending this is a knee-jerk reaction based on 1 game. That isn't the case. The case has been clear long enough, and now people are getting fed up.

Still can’t believe we dropped £40m on this guy just because he’s English. 
And a last minute signing. We've been spending far too much on squad players in recent years instead of going for big guns.

its not being fickle - its wanting to have a capable midfield.

Was very good in the first half yesterday and could've scored twice had he been sharper. Not bad at all for his first start.

Will be a very useful squad player for us.

He still needs to work more to understand his role in the team but as I said, he is certainly up to the challenge. His movement and desire have been good.

Bakayoko came on and started where he left off against Liverpool. His pass choices were shite and he will not release that ball when the time is right.

Like Cahill, I hope this bloke is left out as right now there is much better players who can play in their positions.

Drinkwater is amazing whenever he comes on to play. The only problem is his attacking play, he always makes really good runs in to the box, but doesn't know what to do when he actually gets the ball. He should either start working on his attacking instincts in the box or should leave it someone else to do the running. Because it just leads to us loosing possession and adds to frustration of the players.

Injured yet again. Don’t know why we forced signing an injured CM when we already had one of the books. Drinkwater should’ve contributed far more than what he’s done so far.

Injured? Pretty he has some illness at the moment, unless Conte mentioned something else in today's presser.
