    We’re in trouble here. Desperately. Our season has fallen apart.

    Our squad just isn't as good as we thought, tactics from Tuchel are spot out, completely outplaying Liverpool, buy individual errors ruining us.

    Goals were always going to dry up eventually when they were mostly coming from defenders & pens.

    Shame Lukaku has done you all so dirty. I’m fine with it as a Liverpool fan mind 😅

    That’s about as bad as Chalobah’s header

    Fair play to the lads for that fight back. Ngl, I didn’t think we would come back. Sets up the second half nicely.

    Just glad Origi isn't on the bench.

    You’re gonna park the bus so it doesn’t really mean anything.

    So much for Chelsea parking the bus looks like Liverpool have it well parked with all players on their defensive half playing the counter

    This, just watched the last 10 mins or so and it's all Chelsea with Liverpool in their own box

    They tried their best, I can't be mad about that.

    I imagine they'll be an xG stat at the end of the game which disproves what we are all watching.

    You know who will post that here.

    Absolute credit to everyone on the pitch today, clearly the better team, shame on Lukaku, if he wasn't a fool, it would've been a win.

    Well it is another draw, but the performance and effort was good so that is positive at least.

    Kovacic deserves extra special praise, was amazing all game.

    +Kante

    Chalobah was a bit shaky today but a few performances like this should be expected seeing how young he is. A good result overall and a boost for a tough month ahead. Also, this match showed why Tuchel and the boys have it in them to go the distance in UCL!

    Amen, and I’m glad the press have picked up on it.

    Just did a bit of digging into our recent starting line-ups.


    1.
    Since 20th Nov, we have played 13 games and used 13 different starting XIs
    2. We've had our preferred pairing of CMs in just 5 of these 13 games (preferred pairing=combination of any two of Jorginho/Kante/Kovacic)
    3. Tried 6 different pairings of LWB/RWB (normally this would have been fine but with Alonso's abysmal form, we've suffered here as well. Shows how much we need a replacement LB)
    4. Had 5 different players at CF/ST position (Lukaku, Havertz, Pulisic, Vale, and Werner). On only 2 occasions, has a striker started consecutively (Havertz: Watford (W) - West Ham (L) & Pulisic - Everton (D) & Wolves (D))
    5. Some of our most important players (who would walk into starting XI easily) have sat out major chunks of this period. In terms of appearance: Chilwell (2/13), Kovacic (3/13), Kante (5/13), Lukaku (2/13)

    Our record has been 6-6-1 during this period with some unlucky draws/loss. Just wanted to bring this point out because even though a lot of people recognize that we have suffered from injuries/COVID, the narrative that we don't have it in us to challenge for the title and City are well ahead of us is a bit overblown. They are a squad with much better stability but it's quite clear that Chelsea has been quite unlucky with injuries. Also, these figures don't take into account the recovery time it takes for a player to regain match fitness.

    Lukaku can be replaced, why would I be on his side when he puts Inter Milan as his club on his social media?
