Overall a terrible performance today, not one player really stood out and Hazard done more in 15 minutes than everyone else in 90.

We had no intensity or pace to our game and our passing play was woeful. We passed from side to side at the back and then just booted it hopelessly forward.

And to top it all of we get another silly red card. Overall very disappointed with our performance today. Without Hazard in these bigger games we look pretty toothless. We'll certainly need to up our performances in the next few weeks with City coming up.

Fabregas made a wonderful pass to Pedro, though, but besides that, I totally agree - we seemed to lack both ideas and courage, and our defense was shockingly poor today. We let Ramsey walk inside our penalty area, and we really lacked balls. And then Luiz, after he'd started to wake up, go forward and show a bit of initiative, chooses to bail the team, coach and - frankly - himself by going into that silly, silly challenge. What a poor day.

Love Conte but he's got to take the blame for this. Bakayoko and Hazard should have started, or the very least Bakayoko and bring Hazard on at half-time, not in the 70th minute. Against big teams you can see the struggle we have playing 3-4-3 with Willian, Pedro and Cesc. Cesc needs to roam and willian just isn't good enough in big games. 3-5-2 with Baka and Kante as our Cdms would've suited us and giving Cesc freedom. Play hazard or Pedro behind Morata and that would've been our best shout. It'd have power in midfield which Arsenal wouldn't have coped with. Our hoofs up the field shows more reason why Rudiger and Christensen should be playing being out best ball playing Cb's. Everything was disappointing today, from team selection to the whole teams performance. Only people who deserved praise were the two players that should've started, Baka and Hazard.

Agree, rubbish all round take the point move on bakayoko and hazard have to start from now on conte got it wrong today 🙈.

All spot on. Toothless up front without Hazard which is a worry. Once again the frustration of the Willian/ Pedro work rate with NO end product. Both are really only impact subs and we need to find someone that is more creative in their position and who can score goals. As much as we are unlucky at times the number of red cards we are getting should be a concern, luckily this one was a the games end.

Yep and part of being toothless up front of course is that Costa gone. When in the mood he provided bite by keeping oppn defense fully occupied (creating space for others) and scoring plenty of goals. AS it is Morata needed/ needs more help up front and are attacking options look a bit limited.

Chelsea doesn't really have a squad to play 3142 or 3412. That requires one (even better two) strikers. One more attacking or attackminded central midfielder. Improvisation from yesterday didn't really work. Defensively we were not so bad but our creative part was poor.
