A nice free flowing, open game to get the players confidence back. Now, the work really starts this month.

Yeah it was open,which makes a change. Gonzo took his 1st goal well and Hazards finish was nice. Christensen played well imo tidy and composed on the ball. Thought kovacic was better in the jorhinio role than jorhinio,Willian didn,t seem to have any effect on the game imo. A lot tougher challenges lie ahead this month for sure...

cant wait!!🙄

Christensen is improving nicely but why Rudiger was left out is a mystery. Was it that Sarri wanted to rotate with our congested fixture list coming up? Or was it the "Chelsea should be ashamed" outburst after the Bournemouth game ? Rudiger was particularly scathing on the forward players in the team, which wouldn't have gone down well with Hazard and his mates. This isn't the first time Rudiger has blasted his team mates and I, for one, hope he keeps on doing it.

Bang on there Og....last time Rudiger was critical of some of his team mates....he didn,t even make the bench. Best form of defence...is attack. Just one of those halfs the other night. No one would have put money on Bournemouth winning that 2nd half....let alone 4 nil. Discipline is needed,Dave for one tends to get a bit gun ho when we are chasing the game imo.

A big game Sunday lads. I'd go with Christensen at centre back instead of Luiz with Rudiger returning, after his little outburst last week which must have upset the 'luvvies' up front. Christensen is a better defender and is ten times faster than Luiz so, he's better equipped to deal with City's quick fire attack. No big injury concerns either but I'd still drop Jorginho in favour of Kovacic, who could do that 'regista' role with his eyes closed and in a pair of carpet slippers. The one thing that Kovacic must not do, is get too tricky. He gets good, unusual angles on his passing, but that sometimes bamboozles the receiver so he's got to keep it simple and get forward when the opportunity presents itself. 

Virtually certain that Hazard will be leaving in the summer, as he was supposed to have given an interview a couple of months back to that effect. Considering the club and Sarri must have known about this development some time, Sarri has continued to trust Hazard's professionalism in getting on with the job and, in the main, Hazard has delivered first rate performances. Without a doubt, another one is needed on Sunday.

I'm yet to be convinced by Higuain though. A nice, straightforward introduction to Premier League life last weekend, but I want to see a lot more pace and movement from him on Sunday, if he starts the game that is, as Sarri could opt for the 'false number nine' again!

After Citys interest, what's your opinion(s) on Jorginho? Decent, not so decent  but confident  he'll  come good or did we dodge a bullet?

Not much change from the last game,i think. Pedro in for Willian (who cares) Alonso to keep his place instead of Emerson :crying: Rudiger in for Christensen (bit harsh on Chris) Kovacic in for Barkley (fair enough) Barkley Giroud Emerson Willian and Cho on the bench.

 

Chelsea win btts 10/1....Thank you Betfair.

Got that completely wrong :annoyed:.....Barkley starts instead of Kovacic....deary deary me......Pedro for Willian...massive shock......bet if Sarri does the lottery.......yeah you guessed it,same numbers every week.

Please Pedro just look up and play the right pass at the right time and do not run around like a headless chicken.......still he pick what team he likes.....so long as we win.

cotc :smile:
