Think we will probably start Jorginho, Kovačić and Kante in the midfield as i doubt Gilmour will start any league games apart from Cup games. I've rad that at some point this season we won't be able to use Willian and Pedro because their contract will run out.

I hope we come out swinging, it is a priority to win here as we have City next. Also United is away to Spurs where they can potentially drop points and we can increase the gap. Good thing is we play last so more pressure on us for not to fuck it.

Must win

I've lost count how many 'must win games' there has been for Chelsea, United & Spurs now, can see it going right down to the wire. Hopefully ends with us in Europa league.

Powerful strike from Mount. Well saved from Nyland as that was swerving a lot.

Been a decent start from us... not really creating anything clear cut yet though..

The Stadium crowd noise is not too bad as it goes, certainly not as annoying as some have suggested...

Where has that goal come from xD?!
 

Villa have been shite but they take the lead. Very good cross which is finished by Hause after a bit of a scramble.

Lampard’s playing 3D chess here. Giving up 3 points for relegating West Ham.

No doubting Chelsea's tactic is to get the ball wide and cross but it would help if some of the crosses were actually good. At least give Giroud a chance as a target man.

There we go!

Pulisic taps in after a better Azpilicueta cross.

1-1!

2-1! Floodgates opening?!

Giroud turns in the box and scores with a deflected shot.

What are these drink breaks all about???? 

To help with the 'hotter' weather conditions until the end of the season. 

Although in most games I've seen the temperature's been quite low xD

Glad Villa aren't shithousing more points here. Been awful.

What an absolute shambles £120-130m has got them. Got to drop surely.

The quality of football Smith had Brentford playing vs Villa is blatant, he’ll get a job at bigish Championship club after this and long-term will be able to create a better team

If our ambition for next season is to compete against City and Liverpool, signing Werner and Ziyech will mean nothing if a top CB isn't signed. Christensen and Rudiger are horrific and so prone to lapses in concentration. 

Bizarre starting XI but Lampard made the right substitutions.

Mount is absolutely vital for us.

Again Mount shows why he’s our player of the season in the 30 games so far. He needs to be looked after for the remainder of the campaign and given rest where possible, he was overused earlier this season.

I didn't notice it at the time but Christensen's defending for their goal was horrible from a centre back. Might not have been much he could do for the initial shot but to be standing watching and not even try and get in to defend or mark is shocking.

That, and that miscontrolled ball attempt that almost had Villa equalise in the dying minutes. Very, very prone to these mistakes and to top it off, he is partnering Rudiger, who is equally as prone. 

It's amusing seeing those blaming Kepa this season. He's had utter clowns in front of him all season.
