Burnley vs Chelsea (PL) Sat 26th Oct 17:30 GMT

Recommended Posts

We have to be happy going away to Burnley and winning comprehensively. Thought we looked very good in all phases, even when they put us under a bit of pressure in first half. We looked more solid than we have done. Some glass half empty observations (sorry to be a bit negative):

- We still give up clear cut opportunities defensively. It will happen with younger players, but its not like they were great moves by Burnley. Still lots of room for improvement re defensive solidity. Rudiger and Kante, if we ever see them again, will help.

- Pulisic did will in broken play and had a bit of fortune with the goals, but didn't feel he deserved all the hype he got. Still feels a bit scattergun, but he is young and is showing promise.

- VAR is a ever increasing pain for me. Seems they set the bar so high for some decisions and incredibly low for others. Need to iron this out quickly.

- Wonder whether Frank could be making changes earlier in the game to freshen things up. Seem to be quite late to me - when comfortable at 3 up, would have liked to see Giroud sooner for example.

In general, really happy with what we have seen in recent weeks. Arguably we should be beating all these teams anyway and we'll have harder runs of fixtures in the coming months, but we've done what we had to (and looked good at it).
