We are nothing like the team we were last season, no intensity, no intelligence in play, not dominating the midfield, we have just become defence and play to Lukaku, really not enjoying this, we are regressing.
 

We have all the players, nothing is missing, one of the most complete teams in world football, we just need to find our groove.

Havertz loosing almost all the duels, if he could just be 10% more aggresive and determind he would win most of them. There is so much room to counter in and we have had plenty of chances to do so, but the decision making for the final pass is just dreadful.

Not a good half, tactically not working that well. We're just not creating anything. Not sure why we drop off at the front and let them play out, when they cause us a lot of problems pressing us at the other end, but presumably Tuchel has his reasons.

Need some more pace or just something a bit differernt going forward, maybe Werner or Ziyech. Mount and Havertz aren't really doing anything.

Too early to make this judgment imo

Spurs have played well, we have coped okay though.

Silva magnificent 1st half. 

Mount and Havertz ineffectual. Some of the 'through balls' this season have been appaling. When we do get into a position to hurt them, the final pass has been terrible. 

Kovacic has been pretty quiet and struggled to break away from Ndombele.

Could go either way tbh. Attack still doesnt function as well as it should, and is the most disappointing thing having seen us spend massively in that area. Juan Mata, Fabregas, and Hazard, were all infinitely more dangerous players for us.

This a bad take.

It’s not a conclusive judgment it’s an observation of our current form, we just have Not got it right working Lukaku into a team that was mobile and fluid having a big target man, it’s different football and we need to master it

Fair enough. I expect TT will fix things/find a way
