Wake me up when the game ends zzz zzz zzz.

Positives: the GK and back 5 works.

Silva is still world class. Chilwell has surprised me with just how good he is. James is much better as a wing-back.

Negatives: Kante / Jorginho just doesn't work - sell both and replace with Rice and Zacharia - net cost £30m.

I'll say it again: Werner is not a CF - his 1st touch is awful and he cannot hold the ball up - he needs to play off someone (the obvious choice is Giroud) .

In a 5-3-2 system, the wing-backs give the width - and we have 2 brilliant wing-backs in James and Chilwell - the system kind of makes Pulisic / Ziyech / CHO redundant - we don't need wingers in a 5-3-2.

We started last season losing 4-0 at Old Trafford in Frank's 1st competitive game as manager. In many ways, we played better in the 4-0 defeat than yesterday. But it was obvious over a year ago that our problems were in defence. Why has it taken Frank and Jody over 60 matches to address the problem?

Honest opinions on Kante? I mean honest.

Very poor again I thought. Maybe a couple of games out may help him buck his ideas up.

Not sure about “very poor” but it’s true to say he isn’t playing in his usual imperious way.

All players have slumps in form and all that’s happening is Kante is showing he is human.

He will be back to his super human best sooner rather than later.

What about James becoming the best right back in the world?

24 Oct 2020 22:20:44
Kante defends better than Jorginho but Kante can’t complete a pass in the final third which is a massive problem playing like this tbh.

24 Oct 2020 23:28:41
Although he is different type of Player Makalele wasn’t a fantastic passer either but he did give the ball to players who were.

Kante’s passing for me, has always been average but that’s not why he is in the team,

25 Oct 2020 01:36:21
I think Kante did ok defensively but no better than the rest of the team who defended well (Jorginho included) . When he had the ball he just wanted rid of it no matter whether it was a player in blue or red.

I love Kante but I think it’s about time people stop criticising Jorginho for every one of his bad traits whilst Kante is untouchable. Jorginho has 100% been our best midfielder this season so far.

Brilliantly said Saim.

25 Oct 2020 09:35:08
Saim, some fans and posters have an agenda or maybe it’s rigid views.

They don’t like a player and no matter how well he plays he will always be crap.

It’s the same with managers.

It’s almost as if people just want to be proved right. I was never a massive fan of Cesc but I loved being proved wrong!

Kante is a immense player but his passing has got worse in the last year.

25 Oct 2020 11:55:27
Every player slows down at some point but Kante wasn’t poor.

25 Oct 2020 12:23:23
Kante's passing game was at its best under Sarri. Clearly the philosophy of Sarri and Lampard is different in terms of possession based football.

Yes he still does his defensive job great and is a world class player overall but there is a dip here in terms of confidence with the ball especially passing. Lamps needs to work on that because his position as a box to box is crucial given that J5 stays back.

Patrice evra is a terrible pundit, basically saying he wanted Chelsea to open up and let united score, talking about just wanting attacking teams, no tactical insight or analysis, saying fans won't understand setting up like we did, Jimmy floyd explaining why and problems with playing Extra man in defensive. Least backing up his opinion with reason, evra trying to be funny saying chelsea fans happy for draw, what a clown,

Agree0 Disagree0

24 Oct 2020 19:50:56
At least Evra gave an unbiased opinion about the penalty claims at half time but in general I think all pundits have an agenda.

24 Oct 2020 19:57:13
I enjoyed their discussion. Made a change from usual and predictable carragher or neville or usual pundit comments. Jimmy quite right in his explaining what CFC aim waa and we could have nicked it.

ANOTHER clean sheet! Interesting how tight the game was today.

The whole defence played really well and we also pressed well from the front. Tactically, I think Frank got it mostly right.

The downside was that we weren't sharp in the final third and seemed content to slowly pass back and forth across our lines. I think what's becoming more and more apparent is that nearly all teams in the Premier League have quality players who can soak up that kind of pressure. You really need to be willing to try different things and do something unusual to break down teams. I thought our attack was a bit formulaic and ponderous today. Teams are looking at it and going: right, get tight on Werner, bully Havertz off the ball who isn't very aggressive, job done. Hopefully Pulisic and Ziyech can bring some attacking flare into games once they are fully match fit. I don't know why, but I get the impression that Pulisic doesn't quite know where he plays in this new-look side.

At least we can see a lot of work is being done though which is encouraging!

I thought we were fantastic defensively. Again Mendy was good, some decent saves that I'm not sure Kepa would of got near.

All these fans and pundits that questioned us signing Silva, please form a line ready for apologies. He's still got it and is probably one of the top 3-5 in the league!

I'm not to fussed Frank went that way. Why risk getting beat by being so open. It's a decent point, another clean sheet to build on and another confidence boost.

My only complaint is I thought Havertz should of had a rest. I wanted to see Ziyech or someone direct to really test Shaw and Maguire who neither are very good when under pressure.

very good agree with you mate. Rather have a draw then get battered and look stupid again.

24 Oct 2020 19:28:01
Let me know when the paints dry!

No poor performances for us.

Mendy a couple of very good saves but don't put it on his left foot.

Silva = class.

When Tammy and Mount came on we put quicker pressure on there back line.

Should have been given the penalty against Dave.

James is going to be the best right back in the world.

Agree0 Disagree0

24 Oct 2020 19:24:01
Well guys that game certainly got the heart racing.

But what I do want to say is, Thiago Silva absolute class. Proving to be our best signing of the summer!

Agree0 Disagree0

24 Oct 2020 19:29:12
I agree about him being class Bobby.

24 Oct 2020 19:30:50
it was such a boring game . felt more like a training/ friendly game.

24 Oct 2020 19:23:30
Reece James was brilliant today, needs to cross it more, his deliveries are quality, mendy good saves, silva immense, frank will be happy as he never wanted to go for the win,

Agree0 Disagree0

25 Oct 2020 11:11:12
disagree. of course he wanted the win. but to get another good defensive performance is just as important.
otherwise we could go 433 attack and lose 3-0 would you have wanted that.

I must admit for a keeper I haven't heard of before . he does look like an upgrade of Kepa.
Apart from the mishap in the first half . Mendy made so good saves.
He must have more clean than Kepa already 🤣🤣.
