2-1 win, difficult away game with a hostile crowd. A lot of pressure given the poor result vs Man City earlier this week. Happy for the lads.

Maybe should have been 2-0 but we do have a few issues in within the squad that will take time to iron out. We seem to be making individual mistakes far too often. Barkley got caught in possession near the death which was terrible, lucky for him it didn't lead to a goal.

Kovacic looked better in JORGINHO role . better passer plus he can drive and a lot sharper.

Kovacic looked good and in my opinion Jorginho needs a rest. The players generally looked tired. Rotation will cost us dear.

We need a big summer of investment at Chelsea. A lot of aging playings who have unfortunately lost pace and are not suited to the high press.

Thanks for the positive post Shak! I was trying to take some positives from this game and was struggling slightly!

A few positives:

Christensen - Very solid as usual, he should play more.
Willian - Better, playing more like Sarri is asking him to play. Can still offer more.
Emerson - Solid display again.
Barkley - Probably his best performance - We need more of that.
Kova - Solid display - Looked comfortable in the regista role.
Kepa - Not a lot to do, a positive for our defence I guess.
Giroud - Held the ball well, linked up a few times with the forwards, took his goal nicely.

However, a few negatives or something that I've observed lately. I like Pedro's enthusiasm, his work rate is fantastic, but I feel he's not offering much in attack lately. Obviously he set up Barkley's goal but he's been quite frustrating at times.

Luiz, seems to point the finger when he makes mistakes. Not sure if that's really the case but just from what I see each game.

Azpi - He's improved a lot in this system, but it's obvious he is struggling with the ball at his feet. In the defensive phase he is immense, just feel we need to strengthen that position in future.

Jorginho - Thought he was poor by his standards. He will improve I'm sure.

Subs - Not really sure what to think - Don't agree with them, but I'm sure Sarri had his reasons for them.

Onwards and upwards. Hopefully we can take the confidence of the win tonight into the next game!

The atmosphere was incredible, fair play to the Malmo supporters. You don't get better atmospheres than that anywhere in England. As for the result it was expected for me, tons of deadwood in that line up that should be moved on in the Summer. Biggest problems are in the defence, no matter who we play we'll struggle if the opposition go at us. Out of all the areas in the team that's were it needs investing the most.

No worries Blue Soldier. It was a tough away game and we scored 2 away goals. Like LondonBlues stated the atmosphere was incredible. The away fans were jeering and putting prsesure on our players and the ref until the 90th minute. But I am happy for the win and it should ease the pressure after the last two away performances which have not been so good.

Unfortunately, given our recent successes winning so much we have attracted a new breed of fans who are very impatient and they are criticising team / manager at every game and at every platform and this adds unnecessary pressure which the players can feel which isn't healthy. So its a good win for the players who have to combat the above.

Yes we have to move some players on, I wouldn't call them deadwood as they have achieved alot. I wouldn't call Drogba, Lampard etc deadwood even though they tailed off as they aged. But point agreed we need new players for sure.

It was not a tough away game. They were an average team and we played average, scoring two and then finding a way to let them score. Players earning their money playing in the pressure cooker games of the EPL are not going to be bothered by any crowd such as that and they certainly do not care what the media say. We are not playing well and there the malaise we saw under Conte developing.
