No better time to face us atm. 

 

Shooting blanks up top. 

Team hasn't clicked yet under Sarri

Back line suspect

First team players lacking match fitness.

Either we're going to shock a few people and get a result or we're going to have a reality check and get a kicking.

Unsure which way this could go.

Don't want foreign clubs in the top league anyway 😉

@Stan there is an other matches thread. Is that because you can't be bothered to do a thread for every game 😁

They're not on TV here.

Kepa starts 

Kepa, Azpilicueta, Rudiger, Luiz, Alonso, Jorginho, Kante, Barkley, Willian, Pedro, Morata

And we're fucked. Only Reid of the new signings starts with Murphy (surprisingly) on the bench. Zohore not even in the squad which is baffling unless he's injured.

Fabri starting is a surprise.

Only few teams look good in yellow kit and Chelsea isn't one of them.

Well that lasted long. Bournemouth lead 1-0.

Was thinking the same.  Spurs looked terrible in green as well.  Hopefully it's just a first game thing and teams get back to their normal away jerseys.

Chelsea not playing well but get the goal. Story of the start of the season so far with the big clubs.

Fortunate to be leading let alone 0-2 up. We've been poor and very lethargic. Alonso tbh our best player imo. 

Got to be quicker with our passing and movement. Need more urgency in our play. Barkley has been frustrating.

Fulham trailing despite a good showing. Seri's been easily the best player but they haven't taken their chances.

Stupid decision to start Fabri, Rico will replace him soon

Decent game at the Cottage. Van Aanholt looks a real threat for Palace and Benteke actually looks lively. Lots of decent passing in and around midfield from Fulham but no end product yet.

Kepa just tipped one over the bar and the ref has given a goal kick to ChelseaxD it seemed pretty clear to me that he'd saved it

Great win after a shaky first half. Still a lot of work to be done but plenty of positives. Kovacic needs to be bled in asap.

It will be good for us to have a lucky keeper.... we need to be moving up the luckiest team in the league table.. that will obviously go some way to helping. 

3 goals and 3 points and a clean sheet, got to be happy with that

Huddersfield are dross, like another pre-season game.

Nice to see three attacking players come on. Conte would have brought on a defensive midfielder and wing back.

Good decision making by Hazard as well to pick out Pedro over Morata for our third... 

As Luke said it was Huddersfield and they were a bit dire today, only one shot on goal I believe but we have dropped the ball and the points against similar sides last season so grab them points and the positives while we can...
