The team you started with on Sunday, has to be the worst Chelsea starting eleven for a Premier League match in recent memory.
Too many players that shouldn't be anywhere near your first team.
I fear for Frank Lampard, as the pressure will get to him because he really does care about the club.

We will be favourites. Probably the first time ever in a cup tie/final since 2004. Still got to respect Chelsea. They know how to win finals but I can definitely breathe easier now that Hazard has gone.

I’m still of the opinion that Chelsea should’ve gotten a result on Sunday.

They gifted that result to United.

I think Chelsea could surprise everyone on Wednesday - although I hope I’m wrong.

Yeah a lot of talk about our players not being good enough when we started a CL final with

Ryan Bertrand
Mikel
Kalou
and Boswinga

It's not so much them not being good enough we just have a lot better sidelined. Very difficult to play your best football with half the side out

Lampard with Derby was able to pull some good results in the cup and even at the play off. Still I'll be very disappointed if we lost regardless of who you put out.

Inclined to agree about Zouma, especially based on Sunday but disagree with the rest on your list.

Mason Mount is going to be a class player, I don't have any doubts about that. Emerson played well on Sunday, arguably our best player and definitely deserves to be in the starting 11. Pedro might not quite be as good as before but still a good player and he'll do for a season until we can buy again next summer. As for Tammy the jury is still out but he hit the post and he certainly deserves his chance this season after being very good last season.

Mount and Abraham were great at the weekend and we are bringing through youth, Zouma I agree.

Emerson is a very good player. Barkley and Pedders should be squad players at most now.

Its absolute bollox that liverpool have 3/4 days extra rest than us aswell.
A safe home game against newcomers to the league, we have to travel 100s of miles to manchester united on a sunday night. Ridiculous

Yup you can't win Mons. Damned if you do, damned if you don't.

That's why I hope that Lamps drowns out all the noise and opinions of what others are saying and just does what he believes in.

Mourinho sticking his oar in on Sky after the game saying that the likes of Mount and Tammy shouldn't have started really highlighted to me exactly why I'm happy we don't have a manager like him in charge this season as all our talented youth wouldn't even see the light of day.

posted on 13/8/19

Refreshing to see Frank giving your youth players a chance, I couldn't believe some of the stuff I was reading online about Frank after 1 game.

Hope he gets the time he needs, as I feel he could do a good job in the long run.

posted on 13/8/19

This is a tough one for me. If Frank sets up how he did against United we'll get destroyed when the ball turns over, no two ways about it, but unlike United Pool will press high themselves and based on the number of decent chances we had on Sunday against a deeper line, I struggle to believe we won't score playing the same way.

Considering this is the Super Cup I'd say f*** it, other than actually having more of a plan when we lose possession to close spaces (VERY important against this attack specifically), play the same way. It's a good experiment to see if we can emerge victorious in a punch for punch scrap + give neutrals across Europe a chance to see we are trying to become something different, i.e. not boring boring Chelsea anymore.

Mount & Abraham did alright. You could see (IMO at least) they'd be ideal subs in a scenario where we weren't banned this summer. Especially Mount, lots of energy and was tidy with the ball.

Zouma looked very nervous all game, ironic as he was one of the more experienced youngsters on the pitch. I'll give you that one.

Barkley was probably our best player in pre-season. Curious decision to start him on LW which means you can't criticize his performance too much. Think this season is his last chance though, if he doesn't leave an impression he's probably finished at the top level.

Emerson & Pedro are what they are. Considering how high the line was Emerson was always gunna play, and Pedro was a much needed experienced figurehead on the pitch with so much youth out there. Having him & Azpl operating the same side with such a high line? That was questionable.

Devil to be honest I thought Pedro was awful.
He lost the ball so many times and put us in trouble.
I really do not think he helped the youngsters at all.
I group Dave ( azpi ) in with these comments as well
To be honest I thought Azpi should have apologised for he's performance but again and as per previous statements never ever though I would say this, but I really feel we need to phase him out, I think he's performances have deteriorated over last 2 years

You played at home friday night. two days later we played away from home. We then have to travel players probably not getting back till 1/2 o clock from manchester and not sure if we trained yesterday. The match was two days later, but the affect of playing away probably made it 3.
