    Victor Moses

    Now that Suarez and Coutinho are back Rodgers is tinkering with his formation to suit both players. Playing Suarez alongside Sturridge with Coutinho in the hole puts Moses in a spot. I doubt he has the tactical discipline to fit into Rodger's current system. Unless Rodgers switches to another formation it appears Moses will be confined to the bench.

    Willian

    When he was with Shakhtar, Willian was usually deployed on the left wing. This allowed him to get forward and cut inside when the fullbacks were pushing up to provide width. He also tracked back to defend which Mourinho requires from his creative players. He has been used in the number 10 role when required. He is a versatile footballer who can play anywhere across midfield. I don't see Moses returning to the Bridge and predict a bright future for Willian with Chelsea.

    The John Obi Mikel Goal Scoring Thread

    Mikel is the most underrated player in our club. I have never understood why he doesn't get the credit he deserves. He is our only defensive midfielder, good at tackling, intercepting, keeping possession, passing and aerial dominance. His main job is to protect the back four, win the ball back from the opposition and leave the scoring to Torres et al. Michael Essien was used as a defensive midfielder but was wasted in that role because he is essentially an attacking midfielder who is now past his best, Mikel controls the midfield better than Ramires and his passing is 92% compared to Ramires 87%. He gives Ramires plenty of scope to move forward in attack. He may not be the most attractive player to watch but he is the best in the Premiership at what he does. He plays the Makelele role - protect the back four and leave the scoring to others.

    Victor Moses

    With the plethora of attacking players we now have at the Bridge it is most unlikely Moses will return. I doubt Mourinho is still interested in him.

    Willian

    Willian is more than capable of opening up stubborn defences!

    Willian

    Mourinho made a shrewd investment in signing Willian who is an excellent addition to the squad. I really like him. He is quick, versatile, creative, and intelligent in his use of the ball. He does not shirk tracking back and helping out in defence and offers Mourinho fantastic options in attack. He should link up well and assist his former Anzhi team mate Eto'o in finding the back of the net. At 25 his best years are still to come and his future with Chelsea looks most promising.

    Eden Hazard

    Hazard is excellent at taking penalties. Similar to Balotelli. Slight pause as the keeper moves then finds the opposite side of the net,

    Eden Hazard

    This season I expected Hazard to go from strength to strength with Mourinho at the helm. His contribution so far has not been at a level expected from such a high profile player. The club has a right to expect more from him. Hopefully he's adapting to Mourinho's tactics and will eventually succeed. He needs to be a consistent goal threat in addition to creating chances for his team mates. In the meantime, his first team place will come under increased scrutiny given the wealth of attacking options Mourinho has at his disposal.

    Eden Hazard

    I believe Hazard's drop in form this season is attributable to Mata 's absence as they get the best out of each other. When Mata returns to the team I expect to see a marked improvement in Hazard's performance. Hazard, Oscar, Mata is a world class combination which should produce results with Mourinho at the helm.

    Willian

    It is much too soon to judge Willian. He needs time to adjust to Premiership football. He possesses all the attributes to be a success. He is a very promising addition to our squad and it will be interesting to see how Jose uses him.

    Victor Moses

    Apparently Mourinho has not given up on Moses!

    Victor Moses

    It was a smart move to send Moses on loan to Liverpool. I guess Mourinho figured Rodgers will get the best out of him. He put in a good performance against Swansea, scoring a goal and a great cross to Sturridge who should have scored. If Moses continues to produce for Liverpool he'll come back to Chelsea a better player.

    Willian

    I agree, Mourinho knows what it means to sign Willian and improve the squad. Willian used in the attacking trio gives Mourinho the option of dropping Oscar deeper in midfield where he performs best If also gives Jose the option of pushing Hazard forward as a false No 9. A combination of Hazard, Willian and Mata would tear holes in opposing defences.

    Eden Hazard

    Here are some comments Jose made " I know what I want from him. I don't know if I can get it. I want more responsibility and more ambition. When you have top class talent you cannot waste that talent. I've said many times, one thing is top talent another thing is top player" My take from that is that Jose realizes he may be dealing with a prima-donna. If Hazard fails to take his advice, Jose will not hesitate in dealing with the situation.
