If this would be the 2021/22 season (next one) then I would question whether Lampard is the right one for this job or not. Next season supposedly is the one we should challenge for the title which I t

Lol 4 games ago - Lampard can do no wrong  4 games later - Lampard doesn't have a clue The TC Rollercoaster 🤣🤣🤣 This season was always going to be a struggle to incorporate new players

For me, the most disappointing aspect of the past two games is the inability to get something out of them when playing poorly. The performances have dropped significantly in the last 2 games with atta

Kante has been amazing again

so unlucky with that header

Kai needs to be pulled, Lamps needs to sort out what he wants him to do

it is not working

we need to involve Werner a lot more

I don't like pointing out individuals when every offensive player is bad. All 5 of them, it was the same against Everton. 

Pulisic hasnt been bad.

 

Werner and Giroud havent been too good, but there is a gaping hole where Kai is and it isnt helping. With midfield or in attack. We'd be getting overrun if Kante wasnt such a beast.

Kante and Pulisic were strong. Our midfield of Havertz and Mount are providing no creativity.

 

Havertz surely looks like he's struggling to cope with the physicality of the Prem. Even if you're struggling, you can still have that work rate and show like you're interested in the match which he isn't doing.

This game should suit havertz down to the ground. He'll have time a space in the middle just outside the edge of the box. He can't make late runs from balls out wide and if he's got the urgency should have a few opportunities to score outside the box

Lampard playstyle is simple - 3 ppl in triangle on wings and endless crosses.. No play in the middle. Havertz and Mount dont have 1 pass between them

I think teams have clocked how we play and they block the wing to make us ineffective. If we can't use the wing, then we're almost useless.

I suggest everyone to watch the game carefully and check how many times we actually play combination football in the middle. You'll be shocked, because all we do is pass to the wing and hope someone puts a good cross in.
Yes, it's pretty apparent we are counting on crosses, especially with Giroud on. Maybe taking him off would encourage them to attempt something different than crosses. Hope to see Tammy and Kovavic on soon for Giroud and Havertz (he's being abysmal atm).

Our pressing is clearly improving but we are creating nothing from open play. Literally nothing for a second game in a row.We are not even trying to play through the middle.Overcrowding flanks is a good strategion but in our case only leads to crosses.Werner is practically out of the game. 

Kante is back to his beast mode!

 

PS There is no need to single out Havertz. He is a weak link so far but we all hope that he will come good. I don't think pointing fingers at him would help.

You look at how Son plays at Spuds. Very similar skill set as Timo. Why does it seem like whenever Son receives the ball he is in acres of space to run into and get shots away whilst Werner never does? Is it due to teams being terrified of Kane in the middle and are drawn to him? 

I just don't get it. Why are we struggling so badly to involve him?

Doesn't change the fact that he has been bad again. At times, it feels like we're operating with 10 men. In fact, it's hard to think of a game or even a period during a game where Havertz has excelled (and no, that League Cup game against Barnsley doesn't count).

The crosses are one thing but I don't even know why we're putting high crosses in for the likes of Pulisic and Werner to win in the air!

Different styles. We have the ball most of the time while Tottenham are willing to give it away and that gives Son a lot of space to operate in.

On top of all the problems with players, we also didn't play with any kind of tempo or intensity. Everything was just bloody slow and pedestrian. Barely making space for players to operate in.
