Chelsea V Bournemouth (PL) Sat 1st Sep 15:00 UK

Recommended Posts


Funny how Sarri mentioned Ruben's physicality. He said that is on a world class level but his tactical knowledge is still off. This is like the general comment on any English youngster.

Giroud's influence won us that game, he was an absolute menace for Bournemouth, grabbed the assist for Pedro. How frustrating is Morata, Giroudh as to be our number one striker at the moment.

Satisfying beating Bournemouth after the trouble we had with them last season. Continued our perfect start to this season too, good stuff, wish we were playing again next weekend instead of international break!

Bored of Morata doing fcuk all again...get Giroud on

Chalk and cheese....Giroud comes on and no coincidence we look a much better side...helps having a striker that's prepared to get stuck in and break a sweat...pity ref lee mason was so sh*t and penalised Giroud for everything

Getting better every match with the pressing & control of the game. Giroud should start imo he changed the attack from blunted to sharp.  Luiz did ok today. Same old nervousness periodically at the back though wouldn’t be Chels otherwise!

LOL at the pikeys !!!

Get the f**k in.......but man if most teams gonna do this then we must figure it out. They dont dare come out and Thus packing it in and Count on set-pieces and counters......or Luiz to fall asleep. But what a good win......very good 3pts if we want that top4.

Giroud makes such a difference. 

Links play, bringing everyone into the attack. .......Has to start the next game!!!!!!

At the other end, I don’t like this ‘zonal marking’ - too dangerous.

The exciting thing is we're getting these wins while not playing especially well, and while still learning the system. Can't complain with four from four.

Good win. We are really starting to become a team that dominates the 2nd half. If we can just score from the first half, we'd be on track to winning things

The subs made the difference, they pushed us on. Morata should really be on the bench in the next game, just look at the difference between him and Giroud. Giroud is aggressive and fights for every ball, Morata hides too often and is too soft. Willian is another who I think should be on the bench in the next game, you can't leave Pedro out at the moment, he's too much of a goal scoring threat, it's something Willian has always lacked. 

We got a bit lucky today, Bournemouth had their chances, mainly thanks to Luiz poor defending, he's another question mark in this team. Luiz is a good passer, but awful defender. When you look at him and Rudiger, it's easy to see who the better player is.

Good win though, Bournemouth are a tough team to beat. They don't make it easy for anybody and usually always have a goal in them.

Just now, The Brit said:

Ruben had a nice little cameo at the end there...proved why he should get more game time

He had some good moments but also a couple of stupid ones. Gave the ball away very cheaply in a very dangerous area, we were lucky to get away with that.

Willian, on his day, can be a a world beater, but has no consistency. Pedro is a better day to day option, but I'd still like to have an upgrade there, it'll give hazard some more room too.

 

Can we just make Alonso the striker, and play Emerson left back?. Marcos is in the opposition's box 75% of the match anyway.

Delighted with the win, we've managed to get 12 from 12 while still really finding our feet in this system.

Probably a bit fortunate Bournemouth opened up in the second half, if they'd camped up for a draw all game I don't think we were going to cut through.

Pedro the difference for me (yes he had a lot more space to operate in when he came on than Willian had), he looked so keen to run at and in behind defenders, and took the gamble on a shot in area where a lot of our attacks break down and recycle.

There was again a few mistakes that could've cost us, but they're becoming less frequent, I think this is all shaping up to be a really positive season.

What day is this? He is awful, he has one good game in 5 matches and reverts to his usual average performances.
