Pulisic is such a Ferguson era Man Utd style player.

When playing in central areas Willian is a fantastic 10 isn’t he.

Chelsea look nice and refined! The bastids. The importance of having a couple of established players in the mix.

Watching Chelsea play makes me so sad. They play with such freedom with so many young players, all technically fantastic. Looks like Frank may actually be a good manager.

If they are technically fantastic that will be good coaching all the way through. They maybe also look to buy players with good technical ability.

Pulisic has been a beast today. So dangerous around the box.

Pulisic has been the best player on the pitch today. Crazy how good he can be, he is just too quick.

They've dominated the youth game for the last decade. It's not just Lampard making them good technical players.

They are very well coached from a young age. Hopefully that is happening here now at youth levels.
Joe Edwards (current assistant manager) was the Under 8's coach at Chelsea when this crop of kids joined the club. He's come up with them so there's a huge level of trust.

I’m finding it very difficult to dislike this Chelsea team.

Fair play to young reece james. Nullified zaha today who usually causes us problems.

That starting line-up was the youngest we've ever fielded in the Premier League era and also the youngest any team has put out this season.

Clean sheet, Kante back from injury, Reece James starting (and pocketing Zaha) and up to 2nd. Lovely stuff!

I thought Zaha would lose it there at the end. He seemed really frustrated.

It’s embarrassing that we’ve fallen 13 points behind Chelsea.
