"Superb" against struggling teams, but we do bounce back after a shit result. The 3-5-2 even tough stable it lacks everything going forward, think we should start 3-4-3 tomorrow.

Think the best match out of that list will be Saints vs Leicester.

Azpilicueta has a 100% record when he is captain.

Rafa and Sam hate each other so even if the game is atrocious it'll be funny to see some touchline antics.

Morata out so it's time to shine for Michy, last time he started (against Palace) he was piss poor. January just around the corner if he doesn't step his game until the end of the year i can see him gone.

Yeah that's quite possibly going to be the highlight of that match. But Fat Sam's Rafa hate stems from us not giving him an interview and hiring Rafa - that hate might have dwindled as Rafa's reputation in this country took a beating and he's subsequently been relegated and promoted. It's not like Neil Warnock who blames Rafa for his side getting relegated because we played a weak side against Fat Sam's Bolton as we had an eye on our 2005 CL campaign.

I think Rafa also turned down an offer from Fat Sam to drink wine after that match in 2005, and Fat Sam was offended... But that shite was also 12 years ago.

When was the last time they played each other?

Think the last time was the 15/16 season when they drew 1-1 at SJP. Also played earlier on in that season and Sunderland won. 

He did say it was all over with after they had a chat with each other when both at West Ham and Chelsea but even as early as this season Sam has been sniping at Rotund Rafa over the Ashley and funds situation that he was leaking to the press every week.

We traditionally struggle at Southampton, and I think in a season of atrocious away performances in the league Southampton ranked right at the very bottom last year. We were a disgrace.

I'm sure Puel will have had an eye on this one for a while. So far his sacking from there hasn't looked very vindicated with Southampton looking no better than last year you'd have to say - lower in the table and even less goals scored per game, while of course now being 3 places below Puel himself.

We've won three on the bounce and are playing our best football since winning the league. I maintain we should be gunning for that 7th place. I think we are better than Burnley.

I do think this'll be a draw though. Southampton still have a pretty good side on the whole and don't concede too many. 1-1.

I feel like Fat Sam and Rotund Rafa (did you make that up, I've never heard that but that's "kwa-lity" as Rotund Rafa would say") should be friends. Shame I suppose.

The fuss that Allardyce made over that hand gesture did towards Alonso in 2009 when Allardyce was Blackburn manager is one of the most pathetic things I've ever seen.

Need to be beating these. Don't think the match will be as poor as some will expect but no classic either.

Should be a straight forward win for Everton. Rafa doesn't care anymore so neither do I. Just going to this game because the Premier League told us to.

Batshuayi for sure leaving 

Out on loan I believe... We must have someone inbound then

Thinking about it Conte will probably text him while he is in the middle of his Christmas dinner to tell him he is no longer/never was part of his plans..

Goal for Chelsea!

Lossl slips and it's capitalised on by Moses. Hazard flicks it to Willian who plays it in to Bakayoko and dinks it over the keeper.

Its about time they changed some of the rules of football.... I would go with no more than the assigned number of defenders on the team sheet allowed in the box at any one time... and the other would be no passing back to the keeper from outside the box... Any infringement of these rules will result in a penalty being awarded... And just to stop the likes of Mourinho from naming 10 defenders on the team sheet I would also make a rule that no Defenders can be in the oppositions half or its an instant free kick.. xD

And as I type this our worst signing ever ( according to some ) has just scored.. 1-0
