    Callum Hudson-Odoi

    I really hope the club does not consider this. Wtf could we buy with 35m, nothing decent, this guy has potential to be world class, simple solution here, play him until the end of the season and take it from there, he will still be hot property come July, but maybe by then we could have convinced him to stay. Sarri, just put some faith in this kid, he is already better than Willian and Pedro.

    Callum Hudson-Odoi

    This whole situation has been handled horribly. We have an outrageous talent on our hands with a contract due for expiry in 18 months, if he was getting played week in week out as he deserves to, do you think he will be hesitating to signing a new contract? Probably not. Selling now to Bayern will be a terrible bit of business, if we play him for the rest of the season, hopefully that will be enough to convince him to sign in the summer, if he doesnt i am sure we will be able to sell him for more by then. But knowing the club we will either sell him and watch his value climb or let him see out his contract on the bench watching Willian and Pedro put lacklustre performances in ahead of him.

    I read something that he was going to come to us on loan, Morata has also been linked with AC. So wouldnt be surprised if its all linked in some way.

    I like Hazard as a false 9 personally, seems more effective there, most of his goals have come from that position, the way he can take on defenders and hold up the ball is so much more dangerous down the middle. Though most preferably would to have two other goal threats either side to interchange with, i like hudson odoi and Pulisic as options. Jadon Sancho looks like an incredible talent, and english, tearing it up with Dortmund and is only 18, he'll be pricey but it will be sure to keep going up. Memphis Depay could be a good option as well, i also like Anthony Martial if we can get him, can play down the middle or on the wing. Most preferred 5 options for the three positions would be - Hazard, CHO, Martial, Sancho & Pulisic. May be worth keeping Pedro around to make up the numbers with him approaching the twilight of his career, but i feel Willian and Pedro although both have been great for the club over the years dont quite cut it anymore, at least one should go.

    Nicolo Barella

    Like the sound of this guy, not as well as kovacic though, all we need is 5 players to fill the 3 positions. Kante, jorginho, Barella, RLC, barkley. I cant see many circumstances when more than 2 would be injured, in the unusual circumstance that this did happen we always have luiz that can step into midfield or could temporarily change formation to a 4-2-3-1. Over fill the positions and players that dont get played will always get pi$$ed off and want out.

    Alvaro Morata

    Funny how there was that while thing with Lukaku and Morata and they both turned out a bit rubbish. Morata should be sold as long as we can get 50ish, or loaned to increase his value. Doing us no good here walking around sulking whilst putting in mostly disappointing performances.

    Callum Hudson-Odoi

    I will be livid if he gets sold to Bayern. Anyone can see this kid is an amazing footballer, he has such great skills and ball control, electric pace, his delivery is excellent and he can finish. Give him some game time in the league and he will impress, i am sure he can be our new answer for right wing. Sell him to Bayern and sit and watch rip it up over and be left kicking ourselves whilst spending 70m on players that turn out to be crap.

    Ruben Loftus-Cheek

    Thats a shame, i see him as the strongest of the trio filling that third spot in midfield. Just hope this injury doesnt mean that he misses his opportunity to establish himself as a consistent starter.

    Cesc Fabregas

    Gonna miss Cesc, was sad to see him bench warming this year though. A true class act and i am sure every Chelsea fan is thankful for all he has done since joining.

    Chelsea v Southampton (PL) Wed 2nd Jan 19:45

    I have no issue with the Sarri style, have just noticed that with this style Giroud and Morata just dont work, we were just impotent in attack yesterday, we are a lot more effective with a free flowing trio and Hazard as false 9, more like what liverpool have. Maybe Pulisic will be the answer, and hopefully with Hazard, CHO and Willian we will have 4 very good options for 3 spots next season. One thing that grates on me more than anything is watching Salah at Liverpool, if we gave him and KDB a chance just think what our team could be now.

    Eden Hazard

    Agree, Thorgan is having a good season in germany and think he is at the level to be an improvement on willian now, would love to see him lining up on the right, and of course if this would be enough to get eden to put pen to paper would be an amazing bit of business.

    Would need to buy a better striker with the extra cash. So if we got say isco and say 100 for hazard, and say 60 for morata, we could perhaps pick up icardi and fekir. Like the idea of this as our attacking line up. Kante - jorginho Fekir - loftus cheek - isco Icardi Bench - barkley, willian, pedro, giroud Also, i think loftus cheek is class, he needs more of a chance.

    David Luiz back at Chelsea

    I have always been fond of Luiz and have somewhat overlooked a lot of his mistakes over the years given what else he can add. Though it is starting to become obvious that he is our weak link, so much of our defensive woes start with a Luiz mistake, especially today. I hope Sarri is thinking about a replacement in Jan, we cannot go the rest of the season with shambolic defending like this. As much money as Van Dijk ended up costing Liverpool, i think he would have been the answer, and the difference right now between us and Liverpool. We will need to find someone of that quality ASAP. In the meantime Christensen should get given another chance.

    Ruben Loftus-Cheek

    I think the biggest issue here is the likelihood of Morata getting to 25 goals. We have goals coming from Hazard, Willian, Barkley, Alonso etc. Its our CF's that are lacking.

    Ruben Loftus-Cheek

    Without Jorginho we wouldn't control posession like we do, he orchestrates everything from the middle of the park. He was bought in by Sarri to do this and to implement his style of play. A massive part of how the team has taken to it so quick. Dropping him would be madness.
