Happy with the players on the pitch

 

Flabbergasted at their positions. 

 

Azpi       christensen      rudiger     Chilwell

               Kante               jorginho 

                         Mount 

Ziyech                  havertz         pulisic 

 

Would have been much more dangerous 

We still looked dangerous even with the lineup that turned out today. Havertz had 3 chances and didn't convert any one of them. Pulisic also got into some good positions but the final ball to him was lacking.

Absolutely NOT. If we lose top 4, it is because of the first half of the season and Lampard. Remember that.

Why are some still decimating Jorgo? He has been awesome under TT imo, looks fitter, faster, more physical and showing true hunger on the pitch......he deserves some credit if you ask me.

If we lose out on top 4 in reality it´s because our run from December until Tuchel arrived..

Havertz became more of a CM than false 9 the moment Mount came off given both Jorginho and Kante had no control in midfield. Think more needs to be spoken about those two instead of Chilwell. A team aspiring for top honors shouldn't have central midfielders with such blatant limitations. 

Our Cm's have all faired better because of the formation change under TT. They have more channels to pass to so they're exposed less.

Whenever we switch formation or need anything going forward from them their shortcomings come back to light and they become limited like you mentioned. At least Kova can hold up possession on his own once in a while but he didn't play.

Thought he was abysmal today.  Are there any LB's that are even remotely comfortable using their right foot? 

It's not even that, his defending was awful. The amount of times he lost the ball was ridiculous as well as his attacking contribution. He's just an average left-back, and I was originally against this signing. Reguilon would've been a much much better signing.

What's the aim of our game ? Looking dangerous ? I can understand how the image, the look got more and more important in our societies but without win, it's still have no meaning for me, particularly when you're Chelsea.

Our LB or LWB position is covered awfully, must be said. One may be solid offensively but fails in other departments, the other fails almost completely. Apart from that one nice period under Lampard, Chilwell has been nothing special. At all. And for that money? You get Maguire vibes.

Oh, and then there is the third one. And TT always uses all 3 in the match squad. So pointless.

He was playing RW.

But I still question his decision to restore Pulisic to the starting 11 without merit. It felt like he was reacting to all the negative articles in the press about Pulisic.

He was playing as a RWB but super high up the field in a hybrid back 3/4 system today.

The bar isn't very high but at least Pulisic looked lively for a change today, for the first time this season!

We were not horrible today. I am going to find the positive and enjoy the weekend. Maybe we needed this result to have the players laser focused in training and very hungry against Atletico.

Our win vs Atletico also came off the back of our 1-1 at Southampton. I am confident we can hold out vs Atletico. They looked absolute garbage every time i saw him this season. Spanish football is quickly going down the drain.

Chilwell v poor today. Has to do better as said previously after v United. Dont see why we played a back 4, the back 3 was working, lot of work to be done still today was a big chance to get 6 points over West Ham and leapfrog Leicester. Disappointed but was glad to see no Werner today and Pulisic given a chance from the beginning. Atletico next.

Glad I missed this as had to help a mate out at his garage.

Sounds like the same old problem just not able to finish anything... and possibly a little too defensive in formation?

Was he rested for Atletico or was he dropped?

The ironic thing is we could have done with him in the frontline - or Pulisic there and someone else at RWB - because that front 3 of Mount, Havertz and Ziyech wasn't much of a threat. Havertz had 3 chances and missed them all while Mount and Ziyech did nothing to threaten Leeds. We had no runners off the ball to stretch them apart from Pulisic and at times, Havertz. Given Leeds' open football style, this was the ideal game to just start Werner and then leave him out against Atletico.

International breaks are always BS but the next one can't come soon enough, TBH.

Havertz is an average player in the PL. I still do not understand why we splashed 80 millions on him.

I think hes probably rested him.

I agree, I thought he would of played due to Leeds playing style and maybe Havertz performance v Everton also meant he had to start in some capacity. Plus Mount is virtually undroppable at the moment and deservedly so I would say. But its also time that Pulisic got a chance from the start. 

I hope we go back to the back 3 v Atletico though, going to a back 4 was odd today.

I guess apart from Mendy and Silva, not everyone is happy with our other signings. 🤣

No.., it started out a bit more attacking today.

But for some reason he decided to go a bit more defensive late in the second half by bringing on another defender in James on. Then we lost all impetus, and ironically conceded more chances to Leeds in the process.

The positive for me from this match is Havertz's improved performances in 2 consecutive games.

His finishing may have been sub-par today, but at least Tuchel has got him playing with more energy and decisiveness on the ball again.

Tuchel is bordering Tinkerman territory now. All these wholesale changes between games was bound to catch up with the team. Was it necessary to rejig the entire attack? Callum was superb vs Everton and probably should have featured.
