Looking at the bigger picture the best result for us tonight is probably a crazy 5-4 win.

Steve Bruce ain't that bold....he'll play the typical low block and hope to get something on the counter.

Just like Torres again, all this false hope.

He's rubbish and just like with Torres we will never properly move on as a club until we accept it and take the L on the chin.

100% correct

Wouldn't be surprised if Brucey takes Gayle off after 5 minutes for Carroll. 

Might as well play them both. Great chance to get confidence in to sh*t strikers? Maybe Werner needs to practice against Kepa more at Cobham!

I really hope this move has nothing to with any upstairs politics.

It must do! Truly, I don’t believe any manager in the world would choose him for a premier league game if it’s down to them. 
 

Suspect they’ve said try and raise Kepa’s stock a bit and he assumes this’ll be an easy game.

I almost want kepa to f**k up so tuchel can say I tried but kepa is broken!

It’s just an ingenious plot by TT to draw the barcodes out.

They have travelled down with only one thought in their head; park the bus.

team sheet comes out and Bruce decides that maybe we can win this boys, let’s open up and attack.

In step Tammy and Werner with a brace apiece by making runs in behind the high line.

Reckon it was inevitable that kepa gets another chance. I don't blame the board for wanting their record investment to be protected.

From a footballing position it is madness though!

Kinda hoped Roman had learnt his lessons from the Torres fiasco. At lot of parallels here.

TT doesn't look like a man who would shoot himself in the foot. So far his selections have been more or less spot on. Let's see how this one features today. 

I would agree but no matter how you slice it, this seems like an unnecessary risk.  

Ceiling - Kepa is suddenly now everything Chelsea thought they were getting when they bought him.  At that level Kepa is maybe a bit better than Mendy?  

Floor - Kepa gives up 2 boneheaded goals before halftime.  

Why roll the dice??
