Origi has been superb for you guys. The perfect super sub and great finish last night. One of a kind sort of player.

His finishing wasn't deadly JP. The goal came off the bar and he missed a sitter earlier. Pulisic is a more likely starter.

Burnley away for Puli !, he'll certainly find out what it's all about up't there !

Do you not think batshuayi is a better finisher than abraham?

I'd start Pulisic. Not much between Tammie and Batsman.

Bats missed a sitter prior to the goal, and he nearly skied the goal too !

Tammy should be ahead of Bats, but very happy, to have a good back up striker like him. Bats proving to be a reliable impact sub, which is very handy if Tammy’s struggling

Abraham's comfortably first in the pecking order right now. Batshuayi's such a frustrating player, fact Lamps is getting a tune out of him at all is remarkable..... change nothing!!!

Do Chelsea fans reckon billy Gilmour will get any game time this season? He looks a hell of a prospect.

willians form this season cannot be understated, but with pulisic, he will need time but i saw some real glimpses of what he can do in the last 2 games, his low center of gravity, his rapid acceleration and close control in tight spaces reminds me of someone.....cant think of who

i think Puli just needs to put some weight on in his booty and he will be fine.

He should start against burnley really, hes earned it with his impact, bats is a great option but tammy is a collosal up top at the moment

will struggle, hes very exciting talent but our midfield is very very strong with the likes of Kova Jorgi mount Barkley and with RLC and Kante to return he will struggle for games

Personally id have him ahead of barkely but that wont happen, lamps loves Ross

i hate to say it, but a loan would do him the world of good

Yeah that sounds probably about right. He looks like he could be a proper midfield general, has the ability to spray it about and dictate play, not that many of those players about these days. With a bit of bulking up he could be some player.

Think he'll be limited to the odd early round cup game and occasional appearance from the bench when I jury's put him into the match day squad. A real talent though and probably benefitting massively from being around the first team squad

Batshuayi’s game is limited to being an impact sub IMO. I think Pulisic deserves to start. Been impressed with his choice of pass for a winger. Very much aware of the space he creates for himself to make the assist. Similar to Pedro, I think he could be a great foil for some of our other wingers and midfielders.

I think both have a lot to improve on with regards to finishing. I think Abraham is in because his hold up is better. Bats is frustrating as he has the build and strength to be a beast of a forward. Maybe he needs a run of games to improve.

willians been up and down so far, first two games were dreadful, but was exceptional against southampton, and good against newcastle. Lastnight he looked tired.

Cho also looks super rusty, so no reason why all of them cant be rotated and im confident on most of them starting. Whats good for willian, and pedro when he comes back, is they have to be on their toes now and wont get into the side just on status alone.

"Seems like Pulisic and Michy are becoming our go to game changers off the bench. It's a very good weapon to have but do you think Frank will keep it that way or be tempted to start them? "

Frank will stick with Tammy as first-choice striker, demonstratively better all-round game and plenty of scope for improvement.

Impact subbing is Bats' niche at this level (only attribute he has over Tammy is that he's a better finisher), valuable asset to have.
Chemistry with Pulisic has always been solid between them since Dortmund days, with Pulisic creating/assisting the most for Bats' goals.

Why are people saying bats is a better finisher? It’s like they’ve never seen the two play.

posted on 24/10/19

In regards to Pulisic...he's now starting to prove that he deserves another shot and run of matches in the starting lineup.
Rotational purposes may allow to start at the weekend against Burnley, Willian has expanded a lot of energy over the last few games.

Frank spreading the gametime fairly well, to make sure there's no huge disparity in minutes. 

Pleased with the measures Frank is taking to keep every player on their toes, there won't be any talk of lack of mentality and/or being difficult to motivate. Guarantee you that. Level playing field.

No reason he can't start on Saturday...we have a wealth of players on form at the moment & a couple of changes will not affect our levels, in fact it might even improve

Bats should get another decent chunk of time off the bench too...never rated him before...very willing to be proved wrong on him

posted on 25/10/19

sheriff I agree. One thing that cant be underestimated is how well tammy played on wednesday, tiring out the defenders, but bats movement is good he will also find himself in goal scoring positions.

Im not sure Frank will start pulisic, away to burnley can be tough, but I wouldn't be suprised if he did.
