Lamptey was good again vs Chelsea. That Marc Cucurella fella looks really composed on the ball. Brighton really have a team full of players comfortable on the ball except the CBs

Way too early.

Not saying I'm agreeing with MB but way too early? CHO has been playing in the first team for like 3-4 years now.

It’s different for Kovacic - he hasn’t played 90 minutes since the cup game v Southampton 2 months ago and after getting 72 minutes prior to tonight in the last 6 days or so v Villa and Brentford, he should be much sharper but it really was the opposite. 

I would go as far as saying it looked as if he was trying to work out how to play football for the first time at times tonight for 75% of the game. People were looking forward to him coming back and giving us another body and a boost in this period but he was terrible and even as bad as Jorgi played, I really don’t think he played much worse than Kovacic.

Kovacic also got COVID recently.

People might not want to hear it but think it's hard to estimate or know the impact of COVID on the players, especially as each person's body can react differently to the virus etc. Some may take a short time to get back into shape, some may take longer and all that. It's partly why Tuchel has been complaining to the media over the last 1-2 weeks.

Has not played regularly, has had to fill in wingback positions. At 21, he is well worth investing in. His performances have been better than Werner, Ziyech, Pulisic, even Havertz this season.

He has been playing on the LW since the Malmo home game. Only at Zenit he played at WB.

they soon get Dunk back, who is more composed on the ball

Yes, this is the first stretch under Tuchel and he's been good in this period. On Sunday, coming back from COVID he won a penalty, got an assist and was the one playing Lukaku through in the game vs Villa. His finishing like every other attacker on our team, is poor, and is not a natural goalscorer.

Shit I forgot that.

Aye not got a clue how much of an effect it can have, Havertz big example of it last season 100%.

I never expected this.
After the matches against Brentford -who are not an unworthy side- and Villa and with Rom back in strength I believed the problem period was over, with the whatever loss of points. Yesterday was the disaster of the year.

It's quite worrying to think our last win of note at home in league play was against Norwich. 

No penalties needed...thats what's bugging. Its nice we've won games or got points but a lot we've got lucky that they've given us penalties. Without that be way way further down.

Yep. Not to mention our PK shootout victories too.

Maybe it was a penalty or maybe it wasn't but it's silly if we keep focusing on that and not the fact that we failed to create anything of note from open play against Brighton and especially, nothing after we scored.

May have been. Video ?
Also Mount's goal looked ok to me.

And that seems to be our issue..score first and then fall apart.

And teams aren't always going to gift penalties. We're not always going to get them. Shouldn't be relying on that to win us a game. Like you said we were crappy at creating chances and Brighton luckily weren't great at scoring from theirs
