Wow guys! Hazard and Kovacic can beat any team! Once they are fit I do not believe there will be a team to stand against us and I mean it. A little bit of defense work and Kepa confidence and will be champions.

Ed2 what will it take for you to contribute mate? We’ve had poems, we’ve had conspiracies we’ve had fan pages. What else can we do.

{Ed002's Note - Zero chance again right now. Constant abuse.}

Awful to hear there's still abuse. Don't blame you for not coming back Ed but I love following your work on the other pages.

Some observations after two games.

It's natural that the press will be all over Kepa because of his price tag, as they were after Arsenal's first goal, but his seven year deal is a clear indication that a fair part of the record fee was based on potential. He will make mistakes.

David Luiz is too unreliable to play in a back two, Ampadou and Christensen are the future - and I'm not talking the distant future.

Forget England, our midfield has the potential to be the best in Europe. Kante, Jorginho and Kovacic as a starting three is balanced and has a bit of everything other than maybe the amount for goals you'd like to see. Barkley and RLC are great offensive options to have on the bench - this midfield looks great and will get better.

Speaking of RLC. I know Sarri said after the Arsenal game that he wanted two wingers on the bench, and would want two midfielders in other games, but RLC can play there. He's a better option there than Moses - surely Moses won't keep him out of the matchday squads much longer?

Morata scored! I really would like to see him prove me, and his other doubters, wrong and bang in 20+ goals this season - I'm fully behind him as a supporter. But the jury is still out.

Hazard is going to tear up trees this season. Resting him these first two games was the right move by Sarri. Looking forward to seeing him from the start soon, most probably with the captains armband.

It’s clear for me that Loftus Cheek just isn’t as good as we want him to be. barkley gets ahead of him and his not on bench. plus Cesc will be back so probably Barkley and Loftus left out, Barkley covered a lot of ground and pressed well. would Loftus do that. is it his game to press like that, I’d have kante Jorginho Kovacic as mid and bench would be Barkley and CHO instead of Moses., but remember there a lot of Europa games so Kepa will get more time. and personally I think he may of done better for first goal but I would blame him and his passing and composure was brilliant, Ampadu Christensen Loftus CHO Giroud Cesc Zappa will get playing time and league cup and early FA Cup so they will get time. What I will say and it’s not a negative about too 4 but the Europa league would be on par with top 4, think we really need to win that. So much competition and no easy games in league, morata will be firing now and will put little bet on that he gets a brace v Newcastle never Sunday.

I’m not sure how I will feel if this happens this week but both Tammy and RLC could be sent out on loan.
Also Drinkwater but If I’m honest, I’m not fussed what happens to him.

Need to sort out our defense!

Agree2 0Disagree

Defence needs sorting but I will say more game time will improve the unit.

Christensen will get his chance soon, Luiz had a poor game today and I think his leadership skills is what is saving his blushes at the moment. However, he will fight back like he always does.

Personally, the first 35 mins of the first half and the full 2nd half is what Sarri wants, non stop possession. The more you have the ball the less chance the opposition have to score goals. We were simply scintillating barring that mad 10 mins from 35-45mins.

Jorginho is absolutely class, Kovacic looks his equivalent and can make crunching tackles and Kante is Kante. The trio together could be the best in the league with more time, technically so good on the ball.

A lot of people here have written off Alvaro Morata, however I have stuck by the lad and I still will. I will not say his turned the corner yet but he was good today and his goal was superb. We wanted him to score with his feet and boy did he do that today. Support the lad through thick and thin, with confidence he will be brilliant.

* Where is Hudson Odoi? Is he injured or is his absence got anything to do with him signing a new deal?
* Willian has started again this season? He kept switching on and off.

How Moses is on the bench over Hudson-Odoi and Loftus-Cheek baffles me. He can’t defend great or attack great that’s why the wing back role suited him. Now he’s got no future here.

We were done on so many occasions by the cut back from the byline . Not Sure I agree with kantes riole of being more attacking and further forward. Anyway early days so let's be positive,

My summary, v huddlesfield our tempo was hit slow, first half it was too quick, good when worked but when we lost ball, we were all over the place, second half we were bit slower in build up. had more possession. So when we did lose it we were still in good formation and ready to win back, Kovacic I though might be little light weight but looked so good in there. Hazard compared to Willian is unbelievable, Willian wants to stand everyone up and slows it down, Pedro stretched the defence so well, just need the balance of attack and defence, morata looked to have grown 2 foot after his goal.,

Jorginho is class. But boy what do we have in Kovacic. What a gem, so good on the ball.

As usual bow down to the man - Hazard!

Hoping Kovacic has a good season then wants to stay
Is Luiz going to be good enough this year? I’d like to see Christensen get some game time.

My God I love Chelsea, I am going absolutely crazy with Jorginho and Kovacic. CFCShak, I love you guys.

If Kovacic's fee is £80m. PAY IT!

I didn't think anyone on the pitch could actually dictate more than Jorginho but how wrong was I lol. He is technically immense, such a good passer and dribbles great.

Yes, Kovacic was great on the ball, but let's not forget as well the cleanest of all tackles when the Gooners were threatening to break - brilliant.
