    Chelsea actually looked alright going forward, had some good chances & hit the woodwork a few times.

    Their defence was shocking obv. United only had 5 shots & scored 4.

    On another day that game could have been a 3 or 4 all draw easily.

    Chelsea should have scored early, and United scored totally against of play after 16-17 minutes. So we should be careful to read the result and think this is a walkover.

    Not sure how he should rectify the defence in such a short timeframe, but Zouma was absolutely horrendus and I would be amazed (and extremelly pleased) if he starts tonight.

    Because the manager was a cunt. If the manager wants to play him then the player has no say if he's been cleared to play by the national team doctor.

    Not really. It’s a little more cautious than the Norwich game but then that’s to be expected. We should have this

    Slightly strange team. I always worry about our creativity when Trent isn't playing. Firmino not playing too.

    Mane up top then?

    We have a thin squad, surprised Van den Berg never travelled tbh

    Wouldn't really look at the bench in games like these, they just make up the numbers & not your usual 'name your 7'

    Chelsea playing what is probably their strongest team (bar Rudiger who is just coming back from injury).

    Chelsea team to play Liverpool: Kepa, Azpilicueta, Christensen, Zouma, Emerson, Kante, Jorginho, Kovacic, Pedro, Giroud, Pulisic.
    Subs: Caballero, Rudiger, Alonso, Zappacosta, Tomori, Mount, Kennedy, Gilmour, Barkley, Batshuayi, Abraham, Willian.

    Gomez at right back doesn’t fill me with confidence at all.

    Not into that team.

    And Chelsea's team is significantly stronger than what they fielded on Sunday. Will be close this.
