    Made him sound like some sort of revolutionary when they signed him.

    Absolutely lovin' Sarri-ball. Hope to see much more of it.:lol::lol:

    Seriously though. Jorginho is a complete liability defensively. He can only seem to jog and not sprint.

    Apzielcuto got roasted by Sterling today. But i think it is MF where chelsea are failing. Kante out of position as well.

    Kepa is shite as well.

    Chelsea were way too open. I know Sarri wants to play "his way" but he doesn't have the players to do so, sometimes you swallow your pride and philosophy and just park the bus.

    To be honest given their efforts today I don’t think any Chelsea player will need their t-shirts washed after this.

    Lol! City justed trolled Chelsea with the song "One step beyond" after the final whistle while the crowd do some monkey moves with their arms.
    Normally when Chelsea win at home they play this song.

    Kepa is a good keeper, DDG was exactly the same when he first arrived. Of course he will get better and could have done more today, but he is far from shite

    Hope this loss drives them into a shell and ruins the rest of their season. We won't get a better chance to beat Chelsea at the Bridge.

    Watching sourness cry makes it a bit more enjoyable. You can hear the cogs turning in his head as it begins to dawn on him that pool won’t be winning the league.

    Who is really going to lay down a huge fee for Hazard when he just sulks and goes missing every time things don't go his way?

    Everything was epitomised by the visual of seeing Pep getting animated about Citeh being sloppy whilst still leading 4-0.
    That's a winning mentality.

    When City do things like the Madness number, it really is small-time cockiness. Any modicum of admiration one might have goes straight in the bin. They’re nouveau riche gobshites.

    I wonder what song they had lined up that day they were to beat us and win the title?

    He's actually having a pretty good season considering Chelsea have played most of it without a proper striker and with a broken midfield including Kante at number 10. Can't really blame him for today.

    He'll have plenty of takers because the potential is there. Just needs the right system and manager to get him happy again. A bit similar to how quickly things changed for Pogba once Jose left.

    Perfect way for City to reply to yesterday. No dodgy offside calls, no goalkeeping gifts, not benefiting from the opposition being wasteful with their chances or missing penalties, not looking for the weather to benefit them. Just pure clinical finishing leaving all the external factors out of it. They made their own destiny and delivered a thrashing to a team that was supposed to make this competitive.

    Silva wasn't balding that badly, Rooney barely had hair left. Way easier to cover a small surface with high density.

    Yeah, but this has happened before with Hazard. And most of Pogba was not being played, even in a bad system, he didn't start the last three games under Jose!

    If you beat Liverpool at OT and we beat Burnley, we're 2 points off the top.

    We're very clear outsiders and I have little faith we'll do it, but we're clearly 'contending' for it right now.

    Spurs are not winning the PL

    Forget what your points tally is vs City and Liverpool, Spurs are not winning it

    Well no, we're very likely not, but when we're only 5 points away we're clearly worthy of being taken in to consideration.

    Nobody expects us to win the league and everyone knows we're by far the least likely, but you can't ignore the simple fact that we're very close right now.

    Think it's more the fact that Tottenham don't have the bottle to win the league and everyone knows that, including the fans. The numbers don't matter, you aren't going to win it so its silly when the pundits mention Spurs int he title race

    Exactly

    The only time to consider Spurs is if they're ahead of City and Liverpool. They're third best and that's where they'll remain. It's just the media trying to make things more interesting
