Chelsea need to sort their defence out

3:1, really glad for Tolisso. Hope he can stay fit for a while now.

And another assist from Lewandowski. A quality of him that is not recognized enough.

Ahh, I see. Strange move given you have Kimmich and Pavard. Needs to make a better decision regards what team he selects if he goes on loan again next season.
Well we have played Kimmich consistently at DM, so it's only Pavard and Odriozola for the position, in principle. But it tells you all you need to know that Kimmich's back at RB ahead of Odriozola.

Always really liked him. Think he might be more attack minded though but is young enough to be moulded for the role. Certainly has the ability.
Yeah, he's more attack-minded. More of an 8 than a 6, but played really well in a double pivot with Allan under Ancelotti. I had him as replacing Pogba if he left, but not quite as good defensively as Matic. As you say, it's possibly something he can learn, though.

Any remark on Chelsea's defence right now is calling a spade a spade.

Is Pavard injured, or not in favour?

No, not really, they don't.
Just because everyone was panicking because they boughst some half decent guys up front. As long as they keep that shitty defence they won't achieve much.

De Jong just dribbled past 4 Napoli players as they weren't there. Griezmann first touch play is not at Barca level

These big games really suffer from the lack of atmosphere with no crowds, but aside from that, they've had a tepid feel. Some good football technically being played, but Real Madrid and Juve didn't turn up, Bayern Munich v Chelsea is a formality and Barcelona v Napoli is getting pretty boring now. I think this disrupted season is taking its toll now.

Tonight's performance really reminded me of the talent he has. Still one of the biggest talents in the World.

Lewy... Just give him the Ballon d'or...

In 2 games against Chelsea 3 goals and 4 assists.
