I'll admit i wasn't optimistic when i saw the line up. Cesc in a two man midfield against good teams never really worked before tonight and with the way we play with our crossing i feared Hazard wasn't going to have an impact on the game. Hazard wasn't great until Morata came on, but false 9 really shouldn't be his position tbf. Willian was excellent and maybe a lot of our fans can back off him now.

Only criticism i have is not bringing Morata on earlier. Hazard is at his best when playing with a striker as we saw and Pedro was clearly knackered after his excellent closing down in the first half. Maybe if we had a presence up top like Morata or Giroud their goal may have been avoided. We showed we could beat anyone when we beat Athletico earlier on in the season.

Problem was players kept getting injured and lost form. People would be foolish to rule us out in big European games, we seem to relish them especially when we're the underdogs. Now back to the league and a massive game against United, looking forward to it!

Pedro didn’t do much but his work rate and pressing was sensational and I’m glad that didn’t go un noticed amongst our fans.

In the return where we must score I would play Giroud, Morata and Hazard and slip Willian to right wing back which should keep the pressure on the Barcelona defence. Willian's form currently going forward is excellent and he has the shot from distance in his armoury, decent crosser of the ball and pace to get forward and back. He did OK but I worry about Fabregas when he has no time or space and he has to tackle.

I’d go 3-5-2 but play Willian as part of the midfield with Luiz and Kante as he’s excellent at breaking away.

Where does this notion that Fabregas can't play in a 2 man midfield? We've won two premier league titles with Fabregas in a 2, first with Matic and then with Kante (not so much as main partnership was Matic-Kante)

The fact that SB is a much more compact ground helps Cesc in a 2 man midfield with Kante. at the NC, we will need his vision and range of passing for hazard willian and morata to be effective.

the only change i reckon could be Morata for Pedro.

Pedro had a good game, his positioning and closing was very good, i thought.
the whole team stuck to a plan and executed it well.
