    Okay, here are the final results for the MOTM awards and player stats for the season. GS (Games started) S (Sub appearances) G (Goals) A (Assists) MP (motm points) MW (motm wins) Kepa Arrizabalaga - GS = 54 | S = 0 | G = 0 | A = 0 | MP = 123 | MW = 6 ( plus 1 shared) Willy Caballero - GS = 8 | S = 0 | G = 0 | A = 0 | MP = 8 | MW = 0 Robert Green - GS = 0 | S = 0 | G = 0 | A = 0 | MP = 0 | MW = 0 Cesar Azpilicueta - GS = 52 | S = 4 | G = 1 | A = 7 | MP = 39 | MW = 0 Davide Zappacosta - GS = 11 | S = 6 | G = 0 | A = 2 | MP = 9 | MW = 0 Marcos Alonso - GS = 38 | S = 0 | G = 4 | A = 5 | MP = 67 | MW = 3 ( plus 1 shared ) Emerson Palmieri - GS = 24 | S = 3 | G = 1 | A = 3 | MP = 38 | MW = 1 Antonio Rudiger - GS = 43 | S = 0 | G = 1 | A = 0 | MP = 49 | MW = 4 David Luiz - GS = 46 | S = 3 | G = 3 | A = 2 | MP = 95 | MW = 4 Andreas Christensen - GS = 27 | S = 2 | G = 0 | A = 1 | MP = 11 | MW = 0 Gary Cahill - GS = 6 | S = 2 | G = 0 | A = 0 | MP = 3 | MW = 0 Ethan Ampadu - GS = 3 | S = 1 | G = 0 | A = 0 | MP = 4 | MW = 0 Joginho - GS = 49 | S = 4 | G = 2 | A = 0 | MP = 83 | MW = 1 ( plus 1 shared ) Cesc Fabregas - GS = 9 | S = 6 | G = 1 | A = 3 | MP = 25 | MW = 1 Danny Drinkwater - GS = 0 | S = 0 | G = 0 | A = 0 | MP = 0 | MW = 0 N'Golo Kante - GS = 47 | S = 6 | G = 6 | A = 4 | MP = 175 | MW = 6 ( plus1 shared ) Mateo Kovacic - GS = 36 | S = 15 | G = 0 | A = 2 | MP = 38 | MW = 0 Ross Barkley - GS = 29 | S = 18 | G = 5 | A = 7 | MP = 80 | MW = 3 ( plus 1 shared ) Ruben Loftus-Cheek - GS = 17 | S = 23 | G = 10 | A = 7 | MP = 159 | MW = 8 Willian - GS = 43 | S = 12 | G = 8 | A = 13 | MP = 61 | MW = 2 ( plus 1 shared ) Pedro - GS = 35 | S = 16 | G = 13 | A = 5 | MP = 106 | MW = 3 ( plus 1 shared ) Victor Moses - GS = 1 | S = 4 | G = 0 | A = 0 | MP = 0 | MW = 0 Eden Hazard - GS = 40 | S = 12 | G = 21 | A = 17 | MP = 331 | MW = 12 ( plus 1 shared ) Callum Hudson-Odoi - GS = 11 | S = 12 | G = 5 | A = 5 | MP = 53 | MW = 2 Alvaro Morata - GS = 16 | S = 6 | G = 7 | A = 0 | MP = 31 | MW = 1 Olivier Giroud - GS = 21 | S = 24 | G = 14 | A = 10 | MP = 50 | MW = 1 Gonzalo Higuain - GS = 15 | S = 3 | G = 5 | A = 0 | MP = 34 | MW = 0 Eden Hazard is the runaway winner with a massive 331 points and 12 MOTM wins ( plus 1 shared ) Hazard finished 156 points ahead of Kante who finished 2nd with 175 points and 6 MOTM wins ( plus 1 shared ) Ruben Loftus-Cheek snatched 3rd place in the final stretch finishing with 159 points and 8 MOTM wins in only 17 starts all season. If Loftus-Cheek had started the season ahead of other players and didn't pick up injuries, I think he would have challenged Hazard for top spot. Eden Hazard picked up the most points since my last update ( 106 points and 4 MOTM wins ) Cesar Azpilicueta ended the season with the most appearances ( 56 ) Kepa Arrizabalaga started the most games ( 54 ) Olivier Giroud made the most substitute appearances ( 24 ) Eden Hazard had the most assists ( 17 ) Eden Hazard scored the most goals ( 21 ) I think it's fair to say that Eden Hazard is without a doubt the shed end player of the season.

    Sarri - In or Out?

    I Prefer this to Mourinho throwing his PL medal in the crowd. Seeing this kind of emotion you can't help, but smile. Like giving your Grandad a present he wasn't expecting that has a lot of meaning to it. Warms the cockles of one's heart. Love it.

    Eden Hazard

    Even Drogba didn't give his all in every game, and nobody ever questions his status as a legend. The fact is that Hazard has been our star player every season since he joined and a major contributor to the trophies we have won in his time with the club. If that doesn't elevate him to legendary status, then nothing does. I would go as far as to say that without Hazard, there is a high chance that we wouldn't have won a single trophy in that time, especially the league titles and last seasons F.A cup.

    I know one of them will win the big one in a few days but for now it's f**king hilarious Sarri broke his trophy duck in this country before Klopp and Pochettino have.

    Let me preface this by saying that I, on the whole, can't stand Liverpool. I think that the conduct of their fans (without discussing Heysel, etc.) is generally hubristic, cringeworthy, and borderline delusional. I find the bizarre hive mind and usually unwarranted entitlement to exceptionalism which surrounds the club to be both concerning and irritating. But fair f**king play to them... last night was an extraordinary achievement. It was exceptional, it was a "famous European night at Anfield"™; the theatrics and hagiographies were, for once, not pandering, but justified. For the first time in perhaps a generation, this is a Barcelona side who aren't perfectly comfortable and fluent in building slowly from the back. Klopp recognised that, and instructed his rag-tag frontline* to press, needle and harry Barca in their own half. It worked perfectly. Barca were never comfortable, created little, and after the tie was brought level, never looked like coming back. They, to a man, were comprehensively defeated, in terms of physicality, desire, ability - even their cheating was less good than Liverpool's. Did you ever think that you'd ever see a Barca side, 3-0 down in a season-defining match, revert to 4-4-2 and put 9 men behind the ball? Can you ever imagine that a Barcelona side playing Guardiola's style (or at least mimicking it) wouldn't have simply put their foot on the ball and throttled the life out of the game? Do you think that we'd ever have been permitted to forget why Guardiola considers dominating possession to be primarily a defensive measure? Valverde's drift from tradition may have added an extra element to Barca's play, however it seems like something more fundamental is ebbing away. They were truly atrocious last night, as poor as I've ever seen any Barcelona side. I can't even bring myself to be annoyed or snipe about that match - last night I witnessed something truly extraordinary. Bravo Liverpool... ...didn't do it at the Nou Camp, with ten men, and José Bosingwa at centre back though, did you? *(which consisted of, let's not forget, a player they signed from relegated Stoke, and a centre-forward voted in Ligue 1's worst team of the season a couple of years ago, who had also played 492 minutes before last night).

    Ken Bates: The Chelsea Years

    I guess we should call April 2nd Mr. Ken Bates Day. On this day back in 1982, Ken Bates bought Chelsea Football Club for only a pound. If this didn't happen, I believe the club would no longer exist. So I suggest any Chelsea Fan around the Globe raise their pint Glass for Mr. Bates today.

    Marcos Alonso

    Having less perceived "cover" for a year is in my view preferable to being stuck with a bang average left back until 2023. This may well be the only chance we get to really cash in on Alonso ! We should take that chance imo.

    Christian Pulisic - Official

    Who has said any of this? Most people are saying he has a lot of potential and is the direct attacking player we desperately need, most are just looking forward to seeing how he does at Chelsea and are hoping he succeeds rahter than quantifying his purchase by claiming players x and y would have been much better with no real reasoning other than "well I think hes better".

    Have you got your ticket to Baku? I’d love to go but I can’t justify the cost, the time off work I’d need to travel with it being midweek and a complete ball ache to get to and on top of that all our season ticket holders have just had to spend a minimum of £750 if they wanted to renew for next season. It’s not the fans fault UEFA has shafted them.

    USA bound for friendly !!!

    This game was arranged directly by Roman Abramovich and Revs owner Bob Kraft to raise awareness and benefit charities that are important to them. Is using a term like "Stupid Russian woman" really necessary? I came here looking for more mature intelligent discussion than this sort of thing that permeates Twitter. I'd be interested to get the opinions of any player, agent, or official from another club about whether they share your opinion about her. I assure you that Roman does not consider her to be "stupid" since he trusts her to run his football club.

    Had the pleasure of seeing Kerry, Paul Canoville, Johny B and Colin Pates last night. I’ve met them many times but as the four were together I couldn’t resist a selfie! Whilst having my picture taken some young kids asked if they were famous!! I explained each player with an example of a modern player for them to understand. One asked how many goals Kerry scored , I said 193 and Kerry stated how many more than Drogba he scored. I showed them Kerry’s goal against the ars and they all shrieked!! I said remember his name and watch him on YouTube!!

    Cannot take that article seriously. It says Drogba was 6 '2" . We all know he was 10'6". Try walking up behind unsuspecting Arsenal fans and shouting "Drogba". I bet they will still sh*t their pants!

    Callum Hudson-Odoi

    Can't really add any more than what we've all already said. I think EVERY Chelsea fan is of the same opinion - CHO is special and regardless of his age, he SHOULD be getting more minutes. I think Sarri is right - he won't become a TOP player until he is in his 20's, but he won't become a top player by getting 10 minutes here - 15 minutes there. Last night, Sarri could easily have started him or at the very least given him 30+ minutes. Instead he starts Willian who put in a typical Willian type performance. Great free-kick, couple of good runs but the rest forgettable. As soon as CHO gets on the pitch you sense the excitement and anticipation in the crowd. He won't beat 4 players every time he gets the ball and he may have poor games but you know he will get the ball and run at defenders and scare them sh*tless. And he will get better & better. I think Sarri has got a lot of fans back on board (me included), but he runs the risk of it all going tits up if he gets this wrong. #STARTCHONOW!

    Jorginho is a Blue

    I opened this thread to expect some love for the guy as he had a very good night last night, but.....deary me. Most tackles, interceptions and recoveries, put in a real shift and ran his butt off, and he made some crucial recycles under big pressure. I wonder how some fans watch the games if I'm honest.

    Racist fanbase?

    i am a black chelsea supporter, and it is a difficult subject to get into really. It feels like a bit of a PR exercise in my opinion. The 5 other fans that received a 1-2 year suspension, have been punished for acting like fans do all over the country. Im not saying its right or wrong to aggresively shout at a player like that, but it is no more than what goes on in every game up and down the country. With regards to the alleged racism. While i do find it slightly strange that he would call him a manc c**t anyway, (would anyone up north refer to barkley as Cockney just because he plays for a london club?), The guy has been cleared by police, in what was a high profile investigation, how the club can then come to a different conclusion sits uneasily with me, as it did with JT. I get @Brutos point, racist language doesnt necessarily need to be used in racist behaviour, but there is no way of knowing whether the aggression shown towards sterling was racially aggrevated. That is hardest thing about stopping racism. As a society we can do our best to stop racist language, and discrimination, but we cant punish peoples thoughts, and we cant attach racism to every white guy that is aggresive towards a black guy. The club have used this opportunity to make example, its good PR for the club, and we are trying to stop racism in club. The only person who knows whether they are right or wrong though, is the man involved.

    I noticed this on the 5th Stand App also, there in so mention of it at all but instead a couple of videos of players saying how great they now feel going into the final on the back of this game. Do me a favour. It's a complete and utter farce of a situation, and we have potentially done massive damage to not only this season, but also next. All for a pointless friendly, in a different continent, before our season has finished. They should be f**king embarrassed.

    Callum Hudson-Odoi

    Sarri going on about his age again. Look, if he's good enough, he's old enough. Imagine if Sarri had managed Messi, Mbappe, Robben, Sterling etc, they would barely have played under him. Then he goes onto say he will be great by the age of 22-23.......but what good is that going to do us if he is playing for a different club? It's getting silly now. Nobody is saying he should be playing him every week, but you look at players around his age and they are getting more starts. I don't understand Sarri's position on this, it makes no sense to me. We have one of the best young talents in the game in our squad, but we have a manager basically saying he is too young to play. We are going to lose him, and it will all be the fault of Sarri. No way is Hudson-Odoi going to wait around when he knows one of the biggest clubs in the game is ready to play him right now. I agree with @EdinburghBlue on this, I don't think I will be able to forgive Sarri if we lose Hudson-Odoi to another club.
  47. 7 points
    Loftus-Cheek and Hudson-Odoi are showing Sarri up here. These two deserve to be getting more minutes than they are currently getting. Just get them into the team and let them settle in and become top players. They both have the potential, they just need to be trusted. They are the future of our club and would be a massive shame to lose either of them to another club.
  48. 7 points
    And yet they still have the same amount of points as us, woopeedoo!. If Sarri kept changing the formation every game, defenders etc people would be criticising him for that too saying he doesn't know his best team, etc.

    He’s just disappeared totally, I know his form dropped off quite badly, but surely not that badly? The club have treated him a bit sh*t really seeing as what he gave us for so long.

    Sarri - In or Out?

    Why? The state we were in when Mourinho was sacked the second time is the worst state the club has been in, in the last 30 years. He then went to United and spent £300M+, didn't mount a title challenge in 3 seasons (finishing 6th in his first) lost the dressing room, and got sacked with them in 6th. It is complete and utter madness to think that bringing Mourinho back is going to go well.
