Awful, if we don't score first or early we look absolutely clueless. I don't want to go at Lampard cause it'll look to many as overreacting but he has been soo poor this season with his in game management as well as his line ups. Some players obviously aren't good enough either and i fully expect to be out of the top 4 by January, we desperately need a couple of attackers to stand any chance of getting top 4 this season.

If it means overpaying for a couple of players then do it, it's not like we don't have the money. That's now 4 losses out of 5 with three coming against teams that are struggling and two being at home, it's unacceptable.

tbh I think we massively over achieved the first couple of months of the season. our squad have some unbelievable talent but we are no where near what we use to be. Lampard is still learning and some decisions have been poor but he has also transformed a lot of elements of our game that I haven't seen since Joses first stint.

Lamps and Jodie get paid to find and work on solutions. Let’s hope they manage to do it soon.

Having said that i didn't go into this season with high expectations and with this squad for me we are overachieving to an extent. I didn't predict we'd get top 4, many people didn't. I knew it'd be a rollercoaster season but it's still very disappointing to see performances like today.

JCFC i agree, we have a lot of bright young talent that'll need a season or two. It's just unfortunate they're having to be our bright spark in our team rather than them just adding a little extra.

Our experienced forwards aren't good enough and relying on our youth players to create and score our goals isn't a good thing so early on in their careers especially for a club like Chelsea.

As for Lamps i'll have to accept it's only his 2nd season in management and he's still learning so mistakes will happen. I just hope he learns from them quickly.

I'm really angry tonight and trying not to over react but I've got to sum the squad up. James IMO is our best full back and should have started. But what we lack most is creativity. None of our squad could pick a pass like Cesc. Kovacic is box to box quality same as Kante, Mount has an engine and comes up with a goal here and there but has no creativity (I like Mason but he's a squad player at best at Chelsea) . Jorginho I'm not a fan off who does a lot of pointless balls over the top which only one has been successful vs Watford to Tammy. He offers zero protection and runs likes he's got cement in his boots. Loftus-Cheek would make a huge difference but I've no idea when he'll come back whether he'll be the same is another question.

Our wingers are few more with no creativity. Pulisic will be very good but he's more direct than anything and it'll take him a full season to settle but I think he'll be quality for us. Willian needs to go people need to realise he ain't good enough and never has been his purple patch is over and CHO is the most worrying because his confidence seems rock bottom. A lot of us were hoping he could have cemented his place by now but he's gone the opposite direction.

The massive hole left by Hazard leaving needs filling desperately. We need a goal scoring winger who creates too and we need to move heaven and earth for Sancho the boy is outstanding. He's worth 100 million the years we'll get out of him not this Zaha rubbish with 2 goals all season he won't change nothing. Aouar is another we should target. A creative central midfielder who gets about the pitch as well none of this Jorginho nonsense.

I really felt for Tammy today he had no service whatsoever. He has 11 goals in this team with no creativity it just goes to show we have a fantastic striker on our hands doing that in this team. Especially from the full backs cause Emerson isn't much better. I'd ship him to Juve if they want him and i'd ask them for Demiral seen as he's not happy.

This squad needs a massive overhaul and today's loss is on Frank. He needs to change it up I'd like to see us go 3-4-3 again and I'd even bring Alonso back for that setup.

I am angry mate. The result was bad but it’s what we deserved, we’ve lost to teams we shouldn’t and players when u look over a season and the loses and the wins you think, would we of won without them. yeah probably. would we of lost if XXXX was bought in, . no we wouldn’t, And I hate spurs and top 4 would be huge in franks first year and with hazard gone and blooding young players I got, I do expect more from some, and what I will say is, dean frank to terry to mount and Jorginho, praise when deserve and be critical when deserved, I don’t want frank gone, Mount is good squad player, but we can strengthen in quality. Hope your in a better mood than me mate lol enjoy rest of weekend.

Shambolic. No fight, no energy. Lampard showing very little tactical intelligence when it comes to games like these. Really concerning. Only player who gets a shred of credit is Zouma. We have no plan B, no formation changes, no tactics. All teams need to do is be compact, sit deep and let us pass it about, whilst we hit the first man at every corner and are afraid to shoot. Then wait till we tire, grab a goal on the break or from a set piece and then watch us huff and puff. Seen it three games in a row now- West Ham, Everton, Bournemouth- at no point did we look like winning any of them.
I was criticised a few weeks ago after West Ham saying that was the start of us falling out of the top four. Mourinho will be the one to it next week. I want Lampard to succeed, but he needs to stop being so blinkered. Mount was very poor again, why wasn't he hooked earlier. Why was Kovacic dropped. Why did James not start.
The best performance we've had this year was 5-2 against Wolves and we used 3-4-3. Did the same second half against Ajax and we looked fantastic. So why aren't we still using it?
Make no mistake, there is a lot of good stuff at the club right now, but there is an awful lot that needs fixing and fast or we're going to end up mired in midtable.

Lucky to only lose by 1! I thought we were awful in the 2nd half at Everton but this plumbed new depths. The slow side to side passing made me think that Sarri had returned. A complete lack of creativity or invention - how anyone can possibly think that Jorginho is worth a place in a supposed top 4 side alludes me. And why Mount stayed on while Pulisic was substituted is also beyond me. CHO has to start as does Kovacic and James. And sod looking at wingers in January - we desperately need a creative midfield player.

Someone like Aouar we need not a fairy like Jorginho he’s awful to watch I think. I think we need to change to 3-4-3 again with Pulisic and Willian more central where they’re better.
