Should rotate here. Lampard hinted at fatigue in some players. 

Mendy

James---Silva---Zouma---Chilwell

Kante

Kovacic----Mount

Ziyech----------------------------Pulisic

Tammy

Exact lineup except Havertz for Kovacic 

Pulisic injured in warm up. Werner in.

The thing we lack in this shape with Pulisic pulling out late is someone who can beat a man, I don’t know why Lampard is so reluctant to use Hudson-Odoi who can do that.

With Mount and Havertz in forward positions we get in between the lines a lot more. Mount has easily been one of the best players on the pitch, it’s games like this which pass a lot of fans by.

Wish we replaced Carvalho with Thiago Silva back in 2010. 
 

Controlled half but we need more. Wasted opportunities.

Thing is we always suddenly lose control of things, there were a few times at the end of the half where we lost our shape. 

Need to kill the game.

0-3 Werner

Cohesive performance. Took some time but it looks like Lampard has finally resorted back to our original system. 
 

Mount 10x the player now he’s playing in his natural position.

Typical Werner goal, from the left moving in the channel.

God forbid another lockdown and at the restart Lampard goes back to the same chopping and changing again. 
 

Great performance. Much like this time last year, it’s evident this system and style of play suits the players the most. 
 

Another clean sheet.

If England's lockdown is similar to us, surely football will continue.

Me too. It's a shame Thiago left Milan for PSG and therefore is not recognized as one of the best defenders of his generation like he deserves to be.

I'll happily eat my words at the end of the season.

I'll wait until then though.

Let's hope not.

Fair enough for the odd game but apart from that he needs to consistently stick to something.

The only reason there were people pushing for football to be abandoned was because the title was guaranteed for Liverpool. That is how England operates, it was nothing to do with the virus but English people's dislike of Liverpool.

Might be wrong but wasn't you criticising Chelsea at half time?

Not many seem to be talking about how bad Burnley have been. Fulham seem to be taking most of the attention for only having a point so far. I can definitely see Burnley finally going down this season.

If they get this takeover through before January you can see the owners splashing some cash to try and save them.

They played pretty well against Spurs which is the only time I've watched them this season. I think they'll be fine. At some point they'll go on one of their runs of shithousing 6 wins in 8 games against West Ham, Everton, Newcastle, Fulham, Sheffield United and Southampton which suddenly propels them into the top half without anybody noticing.

I think Sheffield United are in big trouble this season but West Brom have been almost as useless as Fulham bar half a game against Chelsea. For me, it's one spot, who goes down with the latter two there.

Every time Burnley have a bad start and we talking about how shit they've been, they end up shithousing a few results and doing better than anyone could expect as @RandoEFC said. I think it's better we just sort of don't talk about it as though it's weird and hopefully it never ends.

Haha I hope it long continues but I'm waiting for @RandoEFC to come back and say they'll kick-start their run on 5th December.

 

 

Everton, that.

I don't think they were that bad against us, was still a difficult game. I do however think that their playing style and identity has limitations though even when they're playing well.
