    How long will Chelsea fans put up with the young players?

    Don't think we've been that bad in fairness, conceded three extremely sloppy goals. We're missing Rudiger and Kante but it will be a long season if we continue to defend like this.

    I can’t wait for them to sort VAR out
    We actually had to wait 45 seconds earlier to check a Rashford offside where he was 5 yards offside
    And then they don’t check the actual goal
    Once again a challenge system would have been so much better but no football is too stubborn to use it

    True this will help defensively but what about your attack

    Not sure a trip away to manchester united was the time to have all these young players make their debuts lol


    Shouldve gone with the likes of Giroud, Kante, Willian and bleed the young guys in easier fixtures

    Again, work to be done but we were very unlucky not to score in the first-half.

    Yesterday and today we had potential fouls in the build-up to goals that were not reviewed.
    Either they apply different standards in the Premier League (would not be surprised), or they changed the areas in which VAR can be used.
    This has surprised me, I will admit it.

    Is Kante not fit? I cant think of a reason for him not to start today

    Positive signs for Chelsea, they've played some good stuff but the lack of a goalscorer will be a worry. United, I think will do well against the good/upper midtable teams but might struggle against teams that park the bus.

    Only played 20 minutes of pre season apparently.

    Also, putting in Kante for Jorginho reeks of cluelessness.

    He's come on but working back to match fitness I suppose would be why he didn't start.

    Still recovering from his knee injury last season. We're missing quite a few starters at the moment, part of the reason why Frank's gone for youth today.

    Chelsea just need an Aguero type up front who will work hard and stretch the game and also be great in interchange play
    Can’t really play with a big man and then have 3 guys like Mount Pedro and Barkley with not much pace behind the ST

    They'll have the pace of Pulisic and CHO on the wings as options as well

    Hardly feels like a 4-0 but United have been clinical
