Obviously Striker and Left Back are our biggest weaknesses in this squad but one area that does worry me If we want to challenge for the league again is Centre Back. We really are missing a Van Dijk. Luiz isn't good enough being honest, I'd like him to be a rotation option in midfield this season I think he'd do well in a two with his passing and physicality. Rudiger, Zouma and Christensen are good but I wouldn't say any of them have nailed down a regular spot or impressed me as quality. This really is make or break year for Zouma and Christensen, if they don't make a breakthrough in performances this year I'd be tempted to move both on and next summer go into the market for that world class CB we've missed since JT.

Forgot to say the one young animal of a CB that stands out for me is Gimenez at Atletico. He’s a horrible CB to come up against and that’s what we’re missing.

Emerson is looking really good at left back, so I don't agree with your view there mate. You don't get linked with Juventus for the fun of it, surely his doing something right. Yes we are in trouble from a striking perspective but let's see what happens. From a CB perspective, we have Luiz, Zouma, AC and Rudiger. That's not bad if you compare against Man Utd, Arsenal or Spurs. Have faith in your team.

I think it’s easy to say that a team is missing a van Dijk or Terry who were or are on the path to being generational defenders. Rudiger took big strides for me last year as a defender in addition to the elite athleticism he’s always had. I will agree that this is the year for Zouma or Christensen to step up and take the role away from Luiz who has been good but not elite and therefore should be overcome for a place in the first team. Christensen not kicking on from his first season under Conte was one of the biggest disappointments of last years campaign for me.

Thanks Eli. Hope you are good mate :)

Left-back? What's wrong with Emerson?! And Kennedy can cover at LB adequately. I do agree that Luiz is still a mistake waiting to happen - would love to see Zouma and Christensen start.

Left back? Are we watching the same Chelsea team?

I think full backs we don't need to worry with Azpi and Reece James or right and I believe Juan Castillo might become the second choice left back behind Emerson as Alonso is not right for this system. He would be much better joining Conte at Inter.

I do agree with the striker part. I am hoping against hope that we might sign couple of players in view of them joining next year. My choice would be Sancho for the wing (Pedro/ willian replacement) and for striker I have no idea- Mbappe ( I believe he will eventually move to become central striker) would be the best but he will go to spain.

Options could be werner, dembele but with the system we are playing we might need a striker in the mould of Drogba/ Costa.

Tammy knows where the goal is. If he gets some confidence then he will score goals at Premier League level.
