  1. Just as bad as Morata for our team in my opinion.

    Alvaro Morata

    I'm sure Giroud will work in some games, but he dosen't fit the way Sarri wants to play. We need fast attackers that close down defenders high up the pitch, thats our best defence, if the oposition manages to get past our high press then we are in trouble. Morata has the pace to do this, but his overall game is so poor at the moment, that for me a false 9 is the best solution. I would sacrifice Morata, if he dosen't improve in the near future and give Odoi his spot on the bench.

    David Luiz back at Chelsea

    Luiz was responsible for Bournemouths two big chances today, both times he switched off. I hope Christensen will get his chance soon, I think him and Rudiger are our strongest central defenders.

    Alvaro Morata

    I still think our best option is to play with a false 9, remove Morata from the bench as well and put Odoi there.

    Lukaku I think is worse then Morata, at the very least Morata puts pressure on defenders when he dosen't have the ball.
  6. I don't think there is much of a chance that Giroud will take Moratas place in the starting 11. Sarri said this after the game: “We need to press and press and press in the other half, otherwise we are in trouble.” That means we can't have a slow Giroud leading the line, I think there is a much bigger chance we play a false 9 before that happens. With Sarri the best defence is winning the ball back in the oposition half, or force them to play a long ball forward. I still thought his substitution late in the second half was a good one though, since we controlled the midfield and Arsenal started to drop deep.

    Andreas Christensen

    David Luiz played ok against Huddersfield, but I also think he will mess up and loose his place to Christensen eventually.

    Alvaro Morata

    It dosen't work with Contes defensive long ball tactics and Drinkwater + Fabregas in midfield. With Sarris attacking system and Kante-Jorginho-Kovacic in midfield we don't know, but he had succsess with it at Napoli.

    Alvaro Morata

    Not good enough in my opinion, the only good aspect of his game is heading the ball. Whenever he recives the ball at his feet he finds a way to loose it, either with a horrible missplaced pass or holding onto it for to long. I also don't like his positioning and lack of movement to get away from defenders. I think our best option will be to play a false 9 and switch between Odoi,Hazard,Pedro and Willian in our attack.

    LB can be easily fixed, just don't start the slowest player in PL and play Emerson instead. CB, use Christensen instead of David Luiz. Upgrades need to happen in central midfield and attack though. We can't afford to loose control in central midfield when we play with a high defensive line, thats the most important thing. Fabregas is way to slow for Sarris system to work, I don't care how good at passing he is. Barkley, RLC, Drinkwater and Bakayoko are mediocre options at best, we need a quality player like Savic or Kovacic to play alongside Kante and Jorginho. For our attack we either need to buy someone that can score goals, or we change to a false 9 until Morata improves.

    Matias Vecino

    We really need to try sign Savic instead, go for quality for once. I agree with you on Drinkwater and Bakayoko though, sell them asap.
  12. comtrend


    Our midfield fell apart when Drinkwater replaced a tired Fabregas in second half, we just need to get rid of him and Bakayoko asap. I have never been impressed by Barkley either. Kante will improve our midfield alot, but there is alot to be gained by buying a third quality midfielder like Savic in my opinion.
  13. comtrend


    Yeah, I don't think Sarris system will work that well with slow players like Alonso and Fabregas in the starting lineup, atleast not the high pressing part.
  14. comtrend

    Alvaro Morata

    Yes, Conte had an ultra defensive tactic for that game that killed of any chance for our front three to shine. Fabregas and Drinkwater in a midfield two are probably the worst picks you can make as well. I would like to see a false 9 with Sarris tactics though, with more movements behind the oposition defence from our front three, more support from midfield and out wide.

    Alvaro Morata

    I wouldn't be suprised to see Sarri play Willian-Hazard-Pedro as our attacking three, if Morata dosen't perform. Sarri did something simillar at Napoli, when he moved Mertens up as a striker, with great succsess. It also worked under Conte when he tried it, I remember two games that we won with 3+ goals.
