Although it was only Nottingham Forest last night, I was just glad to see none of that side to side passing between the back 3 that ultimately goes no where.

Cahill still looked clumsy on the ball and you always feel he could give it away any minute. Defensively Cahill is one of our better CB's especially inside the box, he'll put his body on the line to block anything. Just on the ball he looks so awkward.

Christensen looked good on and off the ball, and he looks for forward passes which I love. He's impressed me everytime he's played this season.

Rudiger, he was immense last night. Set up the first goal with a great assist and also set up another great chance. Rudiger also always looks very comfortable on the ball. He's probably our paciest most athletic CB and he's great at reacting to and clearing balls over the top.

So with Luiz Suspended for Saturday, and Cahill as captain we can expect him to play if we like it or not. Does anyone else feel Cahill would be better in the center of the back 3? I just feel he gets too isolated outside.

So for Saturday my back 3 would be


it's harsh on Christensen and I'd love to see him in Cahill's place, but as captain we have to expect Cahill to start.

I would rather Cahill gets dropped. His the one player that gets my heart racing when he has the ball. He may put his body on the line but that is not enough. Rudiger and Azpi offer so much more than just out their bodies on the line.

Azpi Luis Rudiger.

Totally agree, Cahill does not look comfortable on the outside especially on the left. He is a centre back and a brave one at that. However, am I the only one that thinks making him captain was a mistake? He has never convinced me he can organise a defence like Terry could. Rudiger has to play and he is really warming to his role.

Christensen will start in the center of the 3. It's also why Conte subbed him off yesterday. He's exceptionally intelligent and an outstanding reader of the game. Probably one of the PL's finest CBs already in that regard. If he gets a little stronger then the Sky is the limit for that guy.

Cahill shouldn't start van Stoke. Play Rudiger against them. I would play Cahill against Atletico though. His experience, aerial power and last ditch blocks will be important there.

Cahill is great when it comes to defending in the box so he would probably suit the middle more, as players always beat him down the sides. However he doesn’t really have the passing range/ ability role imo. I do think he’ll start against stoke though.
