The pleasing thing about recently is we've not only conceded two goals in four games but given very little in terms of clear chances also. We're starting to control games a lot better now compared to

just as i was typing a 3500 word essay of how shit alonso is he scores...

Well, that was a totally dominant 2nd half. Kepa barely had to move today. Jorginho once again this season completely ran the game. It's strange, last season we saw every team (including the poor

Any updated on Kante mateo Barkley James Rudiger  ??? 

Frank Lampard has ruled N’Golo Kante, Andreas Christensen and Antonio Rudiger out of our Premier League clash with Newcastle United this weekend.

https://www.chelseafc.com/en/news/2019/10/18/frank-lampard-provides-fitness-update-on-n-golo-kante--andreas-c?cardIndex=0-6

The boss confirmed in his weekly pre-match press conference at Cobham that Kante had suffered a groin injury away on international duty with France, while Christensen would be out for a fortnight with a hamstring injury. Meanwhile, there was more positive news in the comeback of Rudiger, who has returned to outdoor training in recent days.

‘No, N’Golo is not fit,’ said Lampard when asked about his injury list. ‘He had a small groin issue in the warm-up to the first international game for France, we didn’t get him back until after the second game and he’s not fit for Saturday.’

Lampard expressed some frustration at the breakdown in communication with the French national team over the midfielder’s latest setback, insisting he could have returned to Cobham sooner to receive treatment.

‘Before the international break, I know Didier Deschamps mentioned in jest a little bit about Oli Giroud, which was quite light-hearted and I get it because we all have our selection problems,’ continued Lampard.

Any word on James being available?

https://www.dailystar.co.uk/sport/football/chelsea-star-reece-james-passed-20645470

Chelsea will have Reece James available for the Premier League game with Newcastle at the weekend - but four senior stars are unlikely to feature.

I hate Alonso because he is so slow, but he actualy made his point in recent games and isnt just a  bench fodder as he was in the start of season. In the next couple games Emerson has to show why he is undispited starter when fit.

With Tomori starting, Alonso is pretty much a guarantee starter.

---------------Kepa

 

Azpilicueta - Zouma - Tomori - Emerson

    Kovacic   ------   Jorginho

                 Mount

Willian/Pedro  ----- Abraham ----- Hudson-Odoi 

Managers always tell players that they have to play well if they want to get into the side. Once you do, they say you have to keep playing well if you want to stay in. We've heard Frank say stuff like that at pretty much all of his pressers, so, he may feel that he has to live up to those ideas and keep Marcos and Willian in the line up. The wild card though is that he could have one eye on Ajax. I can see him wanting to keep Willian fresh for that game, and also wanting Emerson's better physicality for Amsterdam. If that thought process dominates his thinking then I can see Pedro and Marcos in today, then Willian and Emerson on Wednesday.

Yet again Saturday 3pm game and you can guess twice whether the broadcaster has chosen Chelsea game to be shown out of all the games from that timeslot....This keeps happening almost every weekend now. In previous seasons I've been able to watch vast majority of the Chelsea games from TV but now I have to keep watching streams over and over again. Annoying as hell.

Anyways, pretty confident about this game despite our injury problems. Abraham, Barkley, Mount, Jorginho, Alonso, Tomori, Willian are all in good form right now, Hudson-Odoi is getting there. Hoping to see James as well

Expected line up to be honest. They will hopefully be enough to secure the victory. Abraham, Mount or Kepa, I don't mind who scores here but a victory after the international break is all I want. All that everyone wants lol.

Who's defending today? emoji849.png

The whole idea is to dominate the game alas not having to do much defending.

We played this exact same midfield vs Brighton and we won with a clean sheet.

Same here in America. It's fucking annoying. I used to be able to see just about every PL game on TV with the "sports package" I'm paying for. But now they have a premium tier where you have to pay even more to see all the matches and only show one game on TV at a time. So this will be the second week in a row that I have to watch us on a stream. :middlefinger:

Anyways, I mostly like the look of our side here. Just gutting to have Kante missing literally every other match. Without him in there these shit sides will always have a better chance against us.

Only questionable selection is Barkley but he was very good for England last week so I guess he's in form? Idk. Let's hope we see good Ross Barkley today rather than the usual average one.

Could be worse. Could live in england pay loads for the sports channels and all the 3 o clock games not be televised. What a joke that is.

Luckily, i'm sure vesper will sort us out :)

The "idea". It doesn't mean lightning will strike twice.

They have already won away to Spurs & gave Liverpool a decent contest, so I'm not thrilled about no real defence presence aside form the back four.

What are you proposing instead?

If we're going to play that game Brighton gave City a good game (4-0 was very flattering to City) and battered Spurs by an even bigger score yet we comfortably kept them out.

At the end of the day we only have the Brighton game to go on (so far) to access that midfield three and it's very much so far so good.

I want to find the executive at NBC Sports that decided we need to see every Man U and Arsenal game and bitch slap him.
