Inevitable 3-4-3

Rudiger still Dropped

Cesc still in a 2 man midfield

Alonso and Moses the wing backs

Morata up top

 

Will play passively and allow Burnley all over us. Will only look threatening when we change to 4-2-3-1 but it will be too late. 

2-1 Burnley

We are badly due a result at home.

Season's dead now so I wouldn't be surprised if Southampton did come here and get something.

I want him to make a few changes for this. Stop pissing around with under-performing players and give some others a crack.

I actually want Puel to stay I've decided. A sizeable number have turned on him but I think he deserves a proper crack. He says the right things and what he's done previously gives me hope that he can do well here in the long run. I also want to think that he will make some significant changes to our first team next year as well if he has the summer because I'm fed up of the same problems going unaddressed every window.

It would be a fitting one for him to win.

Burnley a tough team to beat this season, i expect a draw but seeing Spurs dropped points a win would be really good. Then again still think it is too late for top four.

Can see Christensen being dropped for tactical reasons. 

Conte confirmed Emerson will start. Hope Giroud does too.

Hazard saved for the weekend. 

Morata and Giroud start together. 

Looks like a 4-2-4 with Emerson and Pedro on the wings. Azpilicueta at LB?

Can see this being a tough night away.. Burnley have been fairly decent this season and that defence is well drilled so won't be easy to get through unless we get lucky and they have a mare...

If Burnley win they go above Arsenal.

Is it worth throwing the game?

xD

The thought did cross my mind...

He seemed in good spirits this week.... did you see the him get interrupted by a phone call from his wife during his press conference... that was a little amusing

Going to need this 2nd goal. Hope we keep pushing as we've played well. 

So great to have a wing back that can beat players and deliver a cross. Emerson is a breath of fresh air.

That's twice Burnley have taken an age to take the throw in.... If we were taking that long we would probably be accused of time wasting..

Decent first half from us... I agree we need another though, wouldn't be wise to try and ride our luck against them with just the one goal advantage

Morata looking a tad upset going back to the dugout there... getting some abuse or something thrown from the fans I think..

Let it be known that Emerson has been on the bench behind Alonso since January. 

Pathetic from Conte

Much needed result. Gained 5 points on Spurs in two games. Going to need to be at our absolute best the rest of the season in hope of a miracle. 

Emerson and Giroud should be nailed on starters going forward. Much better performance from Moses.

4 games to go.

Why do you hate the left back of the season?
