    Alvaro Morata

    I saw Milan rumored as a potential destination for him by Simon Phillips, who was quoting Italian media.

    Elseid Hysaj

    A lot of money to pay for a backup RB. Can’t see him overtaking Azpi anytime soon, but I guess Azpi is 29 now, so it strengthens the spot for the years after, and by all accounts, he is a favorite of Sarri.

    Mateo Kovačić

    I think we should keep them all, and rotate Kovacic into the RCM spot from time to time to give Kante a rest. There’s enough games for all of them to play quite a bit. I think Kovacic would do quite well in that role. We would just need a backup for Jorginho if Cesc moves on. As far as the goals/assists, apparently Kante will be taking care of that for us

    Mateo Kovačić

    Good performance yesterday, he is ideal for playing against a press.

    Antonio Rudiger

    I actually laughed out loud when that happened. Walker trying to be tough - he wound up and threw his whole body, and Rüdiger hardly flinched. Most would struggle to stay on their feet.

    Maurizio Sarri Officially Appointed

    You’re both welcome to your opinion but I disagree. Does he hold the ball too long sometimes? Sure. And yes, those flick ons drive me crazy too. But the only games he isn’t starting are cup ties and Europa games that are against second rate opponents. The PL games he hasn’t started, he has come on and had a direct impact on the result (home against Arsenal) or a fine contribution (away to Huddersfield). I’m much more comfortable keeping Hazard and adding some good players so that he doesn’t need to hold the ball too long as often. You can’t sell your best players and expect to win the league or in Europe.

    Maurizio Sarri Officially Appointed

    You’re probably right, maybe I should have said most talented and most unplayable on his day. Curious as to what your arguments are as far as the team playing better without Hazard?

    Maurizio Sarri Officially Appointed

    Because he’s the best player we have ever had and fans want him to stay

    Maurizio Sarri Officially Appointed

    I thought he actually held the ball up quite well. The first half he was jumping for balls being bombed at his head.

    Maurizio Sarri Officially Appointed

    I think it’s entirely possible we stick with the false 9 moving forward. This second half performance is what it should look like, first half was reminiscent of Conte’s false 9 setup.

    Eden Hazard

    Come on now, we definitely need to show more ambition than that

    Marcos Alonso

    There will always be people who have a go at individuals players when things aren’t going well for the team and it’s certainly easier to do that after a loss. But Alonso has been bad, like dreadfully bad, recently, so I wouldn’t call it bullying. His offensive productivity used to offset his defensive deficiencies but that hasn’t been happening recently. It’ll take one good performance and a lot of people will forget. Still, it would be nice to see Emerson at least every few league games.

    Marcos Alonso

    Sure, he wasn't completely at fault, but nobody is bullying Alonso. The fact of the matter is that he is not playing up to standard, and hasn't been for at least a month.

    Random Rumours

    Handful of reports out there that we are interested in Roma’s young winger Cengiz Ünder. WAGNH seems to think it’s his agent working a new contract for him. Not sure he would be best fit for a pressing style though?
