  1. Chelsea 2020/21 - General discussion

    Pretty drab game. Think it was about 0.5 xG each. Sevilla had one nice volley directly from a corner that went over by about a foot and a half and that was about it. Definitely the better team in the first half, and I thought Chelsea edged it in the second.
  2. Chelsea 2020/21 - General discussion

    It's really not that bad, a poor result would be getting turned over at home, especially considering the other match was a draw as well. Quite happy to get a point out of a tricky fixture when the first choice back 5 has only just finished its second match together. Yeah agreed, there's a...

    Difference is Christensen can't do what Zouma did in the air. He was key to stopping De Jong. That said, I had a heart attack every time he received the ball given how high Sevilla were pressing.
  4. Pickford's tackle on VVD: What should be the punishment?

    Just to add a more granular perspective to this, here's a twitter thread from a specialist in goalkeeping analytics breaking it down: The fact that Pickford continues with this approach is either a failure of coaching or a conscious decision on his part if you ask me. There is absolutely no...
  5. Kai Havertz | Chelsea player

    Gotcha that makes sense and I think you're spot on! Sorry, I wasn't trying to have a go at you or anything - certainly he can improve but thus far I've been very impressed with Havertz overall.
  6. Kai Havertz | Chelsea player

    :lol: I think he's more of a front foot player, but at the same time his defensive contributions have been somewhat overlooked. Among Chelsea players yesterday, Jorginho led the team in pressures with 21, Havertz had 20, and Pulisic had 19. For me he looks more like the player he did two...
  7. Chelsea 2020/21 - General discussion

    Think this is a reach. It's very telling that in a market where loan players were highly desired he could only secure one at Porto where he'll arguably be playing out of position at left back. He has a lot of upside but he's not ready to play for Chelsea yet (not surprised as he's only 21)...

    I mean he was all set to go on loan but the move got derailed at the last second. He'll go in January. Not sure why this is controversial?
  9. Frank Lampard | Chelsea manager

    I think he's saying killing the game off via possession & control, not necessarily by scoring more. Certainly you can't fault the attack for yesterday's result.
  10. Timo Werner | Chelsea Player

    Mount is about 5'10", Werner is 5'11".

    Keep him out please! :angel:
  12. Kepa Arrizabalaga

    Small hamstring problem picked up on international duty. Might be fit for the CL match on Tuesday; we'll see.
  13. Chelsea 2020/21 - General discussion

    He's suffered from horrendous injuries and had issues rehabilitating - why would he want to cut short a contract he'd have no hopes of signing now?
  14. Chelsea 2020/21 - General discussion

    Why? We've made enough in loan fees off him to offset his salary at this point.
