Would have preferred CHO on the wing instead of Mount, otherwise good lineup.

With Mount playing so much football of late, including international football, it would have surely been better to play Hudson-Odoi. I also think it weakens us offensively. Hudson-Odoi is obviously a much better winger than Mount.

People need to seriously stop with the Kepa hate. Why not support the guy for a change? What's the point of bashing him non-stop, it's not going to help him or Chelsea in any way. 

Because he’s not up to the job in hand, on countless occasions he’s sub par performances have caused the team we all love to drop points, quite simply he’s not a talented enough athlete to competently keep goal for a top club like Chelsea.

Maybe, but I can guarantee you someone who is underperforming is not going to improve by having a horde of angry people bashing him non-stop. That's why people who are fans of a club are also called "supporters" because, you know, they SUPPORT their players. Maybe this is too difficult of a concept to understand but why not give it a try? Pretty sure Kepa would play better if he had more support from the fans. Imagine being Kepa and browsing through social media.

Everton 2 lpool 3 > now its 2-2 due to VAR offside > this VAR offside blueprint needs to have a tollerence of sorts as this one is so hard to call from BT sport camera showing > if your Everton fan your happy as pig in muck but if your lpool fan your as mad as a box of Frogs ,but the Everton fans deep down VAR will come to bite them in their backsides at sometime in the season

You aren't wrong but a line has to be drawn somewhere. He was fully supported in his first year here and he was doing fine until the opponent has figured him out.

It's not a question of improving, there are just certain facets of his game that can't be improved

I think the main point for the here and now is he’s playing as there is no other option available, nothing we can do about it and complaining is a waste of energy.

Is kova injured? Have to assume so as no midfield backup on the bench and he had a great game (2nd half) for Croatia v France the other day...

There were a few  Croatia players that tested positive for coronavirus after the game so perhaps he must quartine. Not sure what the protocol is in England. Your right Kovacic played really well against France.

Agree. Way too close to overrule. Liverpool was basically robbed here. Bit of a kick in the teeth to the conspiracy theories about Liverpool having the big decisions going their way. Imagine if we had that go against us? the airwaves would be showered with our own conspiracy theories about the world being against us. We’d be livid. Watch this space as it’s bound to happen sooner or later.

I guess rub of the green .. last season a lot of these decisions went for them.. now it’s the other way around
