What a refreshing away performance. 

Apart from the error by Luiz, we were solid and completely shut them out of the game. Created a few good chances going forward too.

Biggest key for us was winning the midfield battle and stopping any real service into Griezmann and their other attackers. Koké wasn't in the game at all and our wing backs were mostly solid and didn't allow them to swing anything dangerous in to our box.

I love this from MARCA:

"Porque pocas veces se ha sentido tan pequeño el Atlético de Simeone. Diminuto, para ser exactos. El Chelsea era más alto... y tenía a Hazard. Absolutamente indetectable, el belga se adueñó enseguida del flamante estadio rojiblanco para convertir el partido en un monólogo 'blue' ante el que lo peor fue la falta de respuesta. En cuarto de hora había tenido dos ocasiones y había habilitado a Morata para otras dos, pero lo más cerca que anduvo de la red entonces fue cuando estrelló un disparo en el poste. No está mal, pero no es suficiente. Porque sin gol no hay paraíso. Ni siquiera en el jardín de Eden."

This is my own translation.

It's few times that Simeone's Atletico has felt so small. Diminutive to be exact. Chelsea were taller...and had Hazard. Absolutely undetectable (Unstoppable would be better, but undetectable is the literal word being used here.You get the idea), the Belgian took over the brand-new red and white stadium immediately to transform the match into a 'Blue' monologue (I really don't know how to properly translate the last part).  In a quarter of an hour he had 2 chances and had created two more for Morata, but the closest he got to the net was when he had hit the post. Not bad, but not enough. Because without a goal there's no paradise. Not even in the garden of Eden.

So he 's not happy Hazard did not score a goal. In the replay !

There was also that big chance for 2-0 Atleti just before HT. Thank god that went wide!

Think Torres also won a corner from a counter attack in the 70-something minute. :lol:

Think it was a freekick pretty centrally around the 18 yard box which Luiz skied :lol:

We will look better with Drinkwater instead of Cesc.

Imagine drinkwater as the no.10 in a 352 behind Hazard and Morata that spunds sp unlikely it is almost funny. But given how subdued Cesc was even against a poor Atlwtico team it might be wortg a try even though i would rather play willian or pesro in the 10 then. But on the other hand, adding drinkwater to that team would make our midfield absolutely...well, watertight.

It's tough to say because let's face it, Fabregas is one of our only very few creative players in the team. Without him, we tend to look lost in the final third. Think the reason he has been poor is because he has played a lot of games recently and we know he doesn't do well when he's not mentally/physically fresh. Hopefully Drinkwater recovers ASAP, so Fabregas' game time can be better managed.

Oh, another match where we went 3-5-2 against a top opposition, another one where we controlled the game and didn't get overrun in midfield. Definitely need to see more of this, especially against the big teams.
