Let's hope with Kante coming back will be a catalyst for us in defence against united. a lot has gone wrong this season, injuries, poor team selections and biggest of all, out of form players. Our entire defence has no confidence at all right now, mistakes happening left and right and they have no cover in front of them to help. Fab and Baka need a rest.

Neither of them are at 100% that's clear to see, Fabregas can't have an impact on the game because he has to chase back and defend, something he can't do well. Drinkwater and Kante needs to be our midfield pairing on Sunday or add Fab if you want a three man midfield. Going forward we're alright,

we created numerous chances in the first half and in my opinion a healthy Chelsea team could beat this Roma side easily. Just without Kante and no protection in midfield we look too open. On a bright side one win needed and we qualify, a lot of people saying how we would get thrashed by bigger teams. personally if we're helathy we can give every team in the competition a real game.


1.) 01 Nov 2017 07:51:21
i don't know why conte started 2 in midfield when roma had. three powerful centre mids, especially starting Fab.
should of matched them either 433 or 352.

2.) 01 Nov 2017 11:46:15
And decided to play five defenders of which all are Central defenders (including Azpi and Alonso) ; A weak midfield. Where will the goals come from?
Come on guys, adjust your expectations on time so you don't get heart broken.

3.) 01 Nov 2017 12:27:14
Is Kante back for you guys on Sunday?

4.) 01 Nov 2017 14:14:29
scholesy, almost definitely - be afraid, be very afraid.

5.) 01 Nov 2017 14:48:48
Hopefully he'll need to sit out another game, reckon we'd beat you without him, guy is an absolute machine, could have done with Pogba aswell, we play so poorly without him.

6.) 01 Nov 2017 18:30:48
Get used to the 1-0 wins under Jose.

7.) 01 Nov 2017 20:58:39
Scholes, it all depends on how you set up. Without Pogba you do lack a little creativity going forward for sure, but you certainly have enough in that team to hurt us. You have pace in that team and we struggle with that especially when we have Azpi and Alonso as our wing backs. If Kante doesn't play and you set up to win, you'll win. If Jose sets up like he usually does away against a big team then maybe you might snatch a 1-0 or it'll be a dull draw imo. Just comes down to our team selection and your will to attack us but for sure you're favourites to win this game right now.

8.) 02 Nov 2017 06:06:59
We will win 2-0.

9.) 04 Nov 2017 09:54:28
Changed my mind 3-0.



19 Oct 2017 00:45:32
I truely don't understand why we continue to set up like an away team whether home or away. Our defence this season has been soo poor that allowing teams possession and space to attack simply isn't working. City, Palace now Roma we allow them the ball and they simply tear our defence apart.

Having Fabregas in the team is pointless when trying to play this way as he struggles to get around the pitch and simply never has the ball enough to make an impact. We're relying soo much on Hazard and Morata to be our spark when going forward that eventhough both are class it simply isn't enough.

Something needs to change, we desperately need Kante back as our midfield looks open every time the opposing teams comes forward. It was a great game to watch for a neutral but we have a lot of flaws in this team right now. Really hope Conte can figure it out and January can't come soon enough.


1.) 19 Oct 2017 08:34:03
It’s time to play rudiger, Christensen luiz as the 3 move Dave rb, Alonso lb. what on earth willian is doing I don’t know.

2.) 19 Oct 2017 13:58:58
Azpi is not the answer at wing back.

3.) 21 Oct 2017 13:28:17
Our problem is a central midfield without Kante. Bakayoko is useless and Fabregas doesn't really fit in 2 central midfield. So Azpilicueta is an amazing solution compared to our central midfield problem.

4.) 21 Oct 2017 14:52:48
i agree antibot we look wide open since kante went out injured we seemed ro buckle up there for a while after our early blip v burnley.

5.) 21 Oct 2017 17:09:20
Blueboy, Christensen was at fault for 2 of the Roma goals - he's not ready to play as 1st choice.

6.) 21 Oct 2017 23:18:49
We need other dynamic and creative option/ s in midfield. When Kante not there we don't have someone sufficiently energetic and good in the engine room, capable of box to box play, and/ or more attacking dynamo. a Lampard in his pomp and/ or a Kevin de Bruyne - de Bruyne must now count as one of our most regrettable sales in recent times.

7.) 24 Oct 2017 09:17:47
I’m sure at some stage KDB leaving our club will be mentioned by Jose. Jose seems to obsessed about our club!



30 Sep 2017 19:32:21
That was hands down our worst performance in quite a few years. Don't ever like to blame Conte but i don't know what we were doing when Morata went off. Constant hoof ball to Hazard? Constantly passing it back without any intention to go forward. my god that was horrible. Of course once we got Bats on we could hold the ball a bit more. who would've thought huh?

Oh well hopefully Morata's injury isn't too bad and good thing it's an international break now. We were never favourites to begin the season like last year, but after that I'd be stunned if the trophy doesn't end up in Manchester. One positive although was Christensen, he was class and hands down our best player. This game will hopefully mean he starts from now on, he's our best ball playing CB and rarely makes mistakes.


1.) 01 Oct 2017 02:01:55
In all fairness he's not as good on the ball as Luiz but defensive wise he's flawless.

2.) 01 Oct 2017 08:40:07
This all means it is time to move Cahill on, he slows us down always negative, rarely thinks positively, always passing back.



13 Sep 2017 02:43:43
Absolutely gutted Musonda wasn't even involved for this game, i understand not wanting to take risks but not even putting him on the bench is harsh. Qarabag was maybe one of the worst teams we've played in Europe, it could've been a perfect opportunity to play him in the 2nd half and let him show what he is capable of without any pressure. Hope he starts against Forest in the cup, he deserves the chance and has waited long enough for it. Can't afford to let this lad slip away, really think he'll be a special player in a few years if given the chance.


1.) 13 Sep 2017 14:58:21
Couldn't agree more, desperate to see him play.

2.) 13 Sep 2017 20:12:44
It's fine saying they are the worst team. But until the game starts you can't make any assumptions.
Musonda will get a chance prob against Forest.
So let's be glad we won and let's get ready for Arsenal.

3.) 13 Sep 2017 21:28:11
Well said 7052andrew.

4.) 13 Sep 2017 22:53:04
So don't u think we've not had people looking at qarabag we should know what they were like or someone has not done there job.

5.) 14 Sep 2017 00:01:19
Musonda is a good young player and he will get his chance.
Its not always easy for a young player to break into the first team squad of a big team like Chelsea. Let's be patient with the coach's decision on Musonda (remember his preseason was a bit sketchy) .
I strongly believe that Musonda, Loftus Cheek (if he stays fit) and A. Christensen (if he extends his deal) will make it at Chelsea.



01 Sep 2017 09:54:59
Barkley Most likely rejected the move in fear of being a bench player a year before a world cup. Let's be honest here, as frustrating as a window it's been it really was no suprise that Barkley and Ox rejected the move here. I'm suprised Barkley left it soo late but didn't expect him to join nether the less.

Ox wasn't joining as he doesn't want a Rwb role, he wasn't exactly getting into our midfield was he. Don't know what happened with Llorente as it didn't seem we tried to match anything. We got cover with rwb/ lwb and Cm with Drinkwater (hopefully) and Zappacosta which was needed the most.

Our starting 11 won us the league last year so why change it soo quickly? We needed depth and we got some with the two players. Obviously a couple of injuries and it's fair to say we'll be in trouble, especially at ST. My only issue is why it was left soo late to do anything.

Why didn't we know Ox wouldn't join us if he was going to play him at Rwb ages ago? Why did we never end up bidding for Llorente? No doubt it seems our boars lacks a sense of urgency to get deals done and it has cost us to some degree but we have a starting 11 that can match any team in the Bpl and there's always the January window if things go south.


1.) 01 Sep 2017 12:30:16
LondonBlues90, U are right about the their fear of sitting on the bench at Chelsea. We don't need to sweat their loss cos they aren't good enough for Chelsea's first team. Ox Chamberlain is a Jack of all trade and master of none while Barkley can't displace any of our Chelsea midfielders.

May be they also need to play too (so that they can make the World cup squad) might have influenced their decision.
I like the players we bought, i think they will do very well.

Our line up worries me a lot. Cahill over Rudiger, Cesc playing in a two man midfield, moses over Zappacosta. Understand Hazard on the bench but looking at both teams i can really see Arsenal controlling this game. Hope I'm wrong, I'll still go for us two edge it 2-1 👍.


1.) 17 Sep 2017 13:01:34
I'd have expected Moses to start as Zappacosta has only been here a few weeks. Slightly surprised by Fabregas starting but then again Arsenals midfield is their weak point. Definitely surprised by Rudiger being dropped but maybe Conte sees Cahill having more big match experience in the PL?



19 Aug 2017 23:59:49
We're soo lucky to have Conte as our manager. I know this isn't a "rumour" but Conte's recent comments about the club and what he aims to achieve with us is music to my ears and beats any transfer Chelsea have/ will make. If there was any sort of problem with the board throughout the summer it seems to have been resolved for now.

It's been a long time coming for the club to fully back a manger and their project, to give them time to create their own team and way of play. We haven't been that type of club for a while but i truely hope Conte is given the chance and is backed if/ when Chelsea go through bad patches.

The success the club seems to have with the current philosophy with managers i struggle to see this happening though, Conte's a man who likes to have full control and Chelsea aren't a club who let's managers have it. This will be a huge year for him and hopefully for us as a club, to move away from our reputation for sacking managers as soon as things look bad and to give the guy at least a few years to create his own team🤞🤞.


1.) 20 Aug 2017 08:09:42
100% agree. He knows exactly what he wants and what players he needs in order to achieve it. There are a couple more players (no names) he wants to get rid but he will do it his way.

2.) 20 Aug 2017 09:57:47
If conte bought players in and struggled as the board I wouldn't throw money at him but he done superb job and got best of players to his disposal, with the players he wants and bit more control we could really push on especially in Europe, plus with conte there's no drama or fa fines and ridiculous mind games.



16 Aug 2017 23:58:24
Been "Rumoured" that Chelsea have had another bid for Sandro rejected, this time for around €70m + add ons. If it's true and that can't tempt Juve then i think it's fair to say this just isn't going to happen this summer lol. The board have done all they can with this but it looks as if Sandro doesn't want to force it. Maybe try another time but it just seems a lost cause at this point.


1.) 17 Aug 2017 01:02:12
If what you posted is true and the player didn't hand in a transfer request, then the club should move on from Alex Sandro without any regrets.

I still maintain that he isn't the only wingback in Europe.

Kalidou Koulibaly, Rooney, Cavani, Pogba, Falcao (the first time) etc. all players we had similar scenarios with AND WE ARE STILL HERE WAXING STRONG. I SAY MOVE ON FROM HIM.



15 Aug 2017 09:33:53
i was curious if Chelsea have had any sort of encouragement from Sandro's agent or such to keep pursuing him? I know Chelsea have been trying to convince Juve to sell from what Ed said in the past and that they're still being reluctant to not sell. But if he was to hand in a transfer request then it might force Juve's hand to negotiate.

But since he hasn't yet i thought maybe he isn't determined to move to Chelsea enough to force it. Either that or he doesn't want to risk creating a bad relationship with the club and fans like it has with other players which wouldn't surprise me.




14 Aug 2017 18:45:33
The talk about us being stupid in letting Matic go to United after his game is hilarious. Don't think they ever saw him for us last season at all. I remember when he first came and how dominant he was for half a season. Letting him go was not an issue, he wanted to leave and wanted United so it was hard to say no for £40m.

The issue was letting him go when Bakayoko wasn't fit yet or not having another midfielder in to replace him. Not surprised he's performing well, he's a great player but didn't want to play for us anymore which led to his average performances last season. A shame it had to be United as he'll play such a big part in their title challenge but I'm not disappointed in selling him, I'm disappointed in the timing.


1.) 14 Aug 2017 19:47:57
There's nothing hilarious about it. Don't be naive. The club was unable to keep him because former manager convinced him to join him. And RA was soft to Matic the same way he was soft to Čeh and Ivanovic.

{Ed002's Note - I have explaine dthe situation - you seem to be making this up.}

Burnley, Palace and now West ham. Not to mention getting lucky against Swansea. It's embarrassing how bad we play against poor teams who just defend. Morata has been missing chances left, right and centre for months now and Bakayoko just is not himself, can't keep the ball, can't pass and constantly making mistakes leading to goals. If Hazard and Fabregas aren't on their game we're just awful to watch. Batshuayi could do no worse than Morata. Ampadu, Drinkwater or my neighbours cat are better options than Baka right now. Conte needs to be ruthless, the players he's trusting are constantly letting him down. Whether he doesn't trust his other options or not he needs to change this line up. January can't come soon enough but after the window in the summer i can't even be optimistic about it.

I get more anxiety than enjoyment from watching games during the international break in fear one of our players will get hurt. Every time they're tackled i fear the worst! . Especially with Hazard as everyone loves to hack him down a few times a game.

I never really pay any attention to the media nowadays but personally I'd be surprised if he did indeed stay. We're a club that likes to go through manager to manager whenever things go south not matter how highly rated you are or much you're loved by fans (Mourinho, Ancelotti) . If we fail to win anything this year or we fall far behind in the league he'll be gone as hard as it is to say. I remember reading a while ago as well that he wanted more control and to be seen as an actual manager rather than a "Head coach". Club is bigger than anyone so if he does go we'll move on as always, but this one would hurt more than any other.

Don't believe it. BEin sports the one reporting it and they haven't exactly been reliable. Said Ox was going to sign a contract with us and said Coutinho was going to Barcelona. Nobody even knows where the damn guy is 😂. Would love him but can't see it.

We did kill the game at 3-0. Huddersfield offered nothing until the last few minutes and it was clear our players wanted to reserve energy for the upcoming fixtures. Especially now when games are very conjested you don't want to overwork yourself in games that are already won. We've definitely had problems killing off games but this wasn't one of them. I agree Rudiger should be starting, today was easily our best defensive line up.

Had no problem with the way the Coasta situation was dealt. As much as we're missing him, he wanted to leave on more than 1 occasion and disappeared the entire 2nd half of the season last year after the Januray window and then tried to play the victim once he realised he couldn't go back to Athleti in the sunmer. With Luiz we don't really know what's going on so can't say anything. With the team it's hard to play with width when there's no quality, Zappa has been awful, Alonso is doing his best but clearly lacks, only player who does anything is Moses who should've started. Morata had more than enough chances to bring us level but he's been terrible in front of goal for a while now. Batshuayi should've gone up with Morata I agree with but for me he isn't being ruthless enough. Continues to trust Morata and Bakayoko eventhough they keep letting him down. Start Bats, give anyone but Baka a chance. We had enough chances today, but it's clear to see our lack of quality with our system when Hazard and Fab don't play well.

I've always found it interesting with Liverpool, they've always had potential to win the league with the players they've had in attack and midfield in recent years. Prime torres, prime Sturridge and Suarez, now Mane and Salah and of course Gerrard. But they've always had a terrible defence. No matter what manager came in it was always the same issues. I always laughed when i saw Liverpool fans getting optimistic about winning the league. Like how can you look at your defence and think you could really compete. Only time they looked like they could do it was in the 14/ 15 season, and we all know what happened then.

Hope not but wouldn't suprise me. He hasn't had a fully fit squad all season bar a few games. Hazard, Morata and Drinkwater started off injured, Bakayoko was rushed in and hasn't been 100% all season. Suspensions to our defence, then Kante and Moses with injuries. Conte has been criticised for team selections at times and rightly so but everything that was right about our season last year is going wrong this year. For him to be under this much pressure when he's had such bad luck with his team is truely unfair imo. Once this team gets fit we'll be back on track. League may be gone, but maybe one of the domestic cups and a good run in the CL with top 4 is more than capable.

Really? I thought Hazard in the first half was easily our best player. Created chances for himself and kept the ball well, in the 2nd half he just looked fed up and i don't blame him. I thought Pedro was good and Courtois definitely kept the score down! . Feel sorry for Thibo having to put up with that defence right now. Would be suprised if him and Hazard signed contract extensions any time soon.
