Hazard, Azpi, Jorginho, Kante are the only top players we have. We really are going to be in trouble if one of them picks up an injury this season (May God forbid) . Last seasons thrashing by Watford and Newcastle shall be the norm.

NB: I totally support Sarri. It's the board that has me a bit gutted.

I think Azpi is a quality defender. But I’m not sure if he’s a quality RB in a Sarri system. It will be interesting to see. His passing was poor today when he got pressured.

You need to watch the way you speak about azpi king frank.

KingFrank I made this your exact same point about Azpi not been optimal for that RB role anymore some weeks back. I prefer Moses for that RB role currently cos it might be easier for Moses to adapt to that position than Azpi. If Azpi is to play RB again, it will take him some time to adapt and be excellent at that role. You can see how difficult it is for Alonso to adapt again to LB role (from the left wing back position that he was used to) . My fear for Azpi is that he might not be optimal too- playing in a two man central defense, if the coach was to move him to centre back.

Frank - been saying this for a few months now. As good as Azpi has been, his performances have dropped. He doesn’t look happy at right back. I love the bloke, but feel him and Alonso are there to be got at every game. Alonso is particular. He’s awful.

I feel It is easier to convert an ageing (experienced) player from RB/ LB to CENTRE BACK than from CENTRE BACK to RB/ LB.
I also think that it's easier to convert a Wingback to a fullback than convert a centre back to a full back.
It's like water flowing uphill (very difficult) - trying to convert a Centre back to a wingback.

NB- The position of a WB > FB require players with relatively more mobility compared to a centre back; and mobility is one thing that reduces with age.
In conclusion, Moses and Zappacosta should be adapted to become our RB (right full backs) while Alonso and Emerson should be adapted to become our LB (left full backs) . Azpi will defend better than Moses or Zappacosta in the box, but he would slow us down when the fullbacks need to attack (or overlap) and if our full backs aren't overlapping, we can't say that we are attacking team.

going loko down in bakayoko - Don't get your knickers in a twist, everyone's entitled to their own opinion.
