    He would have been good replacement for gino to be fair mak given low fee, think he will be a good addition for us.

    Lucky, good article I like Niguez’s versatility and he’s a bit more attacked minded than our other midfield alternatives if that’s where Tommy selects him. He also gives us an alternative way of playing he could work out as a key signing imo. Cheers 9’s

    Another bonus is he can shoot from range nine which is something we don’t have from deep currently. Kovacic should be fined half a weeks wages every time he decides to shoot 😀

    My understanding was that Saul wanted to play in central midfield as no 8 as opposed to holding no 6 role. and that is where Tuchel wants to use him. there are times when Chelsea will need to use 3-5-2 / 3-5-1-1 with three midfielders to make it tough for teams to attack from central. and I won’t be surprised to see a trio of Saul, Jorginho and Kante in the same midfield. Kovacic is Tuchel’s midfield lynchpin and the fact that Tuchel pushed to sign Saul suggests he will feature, and we all know what Kante contributes, and Jorginho is in the form of his life. central midfield and the two attacking midfield positions is where we have our strongest players. I guess it’s a nice problem to have for Tuchel.

    Lukaka injured is not good news, there is no other striker in the squad that I know off.

    In my opinion, if Lukaku isn’t 100% fit, it would rest him for our game against Villa, because after that we have two important games one away from to our fiercest rivals, and another at home to the Champions. so we may need Lukaku’s presence for those two games more than any other thing. as for our game on Saturday, we have enough quality in our team already to compete with Villa. We have Werner who despite not getting enough game time has scored two in two for his country this week. and he is capable of filling that void.

    Danny Drinkwater has really gone down from what was a very promising career. Apparently his lazy at training and water is not his favourite drink.

    The only problem for Drinkwater was that he made the wrong move at the wrobg time. There were several factors that contributed to his footballing demise.
    1. He went to Chelsea as a last gasp option as oppossed to a signing that the coach wanted.

    2. The club and the manager were in disagreement over the signings of that summer, at the same time Conte wasn’t happy with the depature of Matic.

    3. He was directly competing with Fabregas, and any coach would pick Fabregas over Drinkwater as the other slot was reserved for Kante.

    4. He was injured by the time he made that move, the one thing that will count against a player is moving to a new club while injured. Drinkwater has to wait 2 more months to make his debut, and by that time the other midfielders were already ahead of him in fitness and match sharpness. As he didn’t even had a preseason.

    5.His motivation is very low. For you to play in a competitve team like Chelsea, you need to be highly motivated to win a spot, but this guy looks disinterested.

    When you look at all of those factors, and his conduct of late where he was involved a training ground clash twice, then you will understand why all of the four cosches that Chelsea had while he is at the club are reluctant to play him and are shipping him away on loan.

    When his loan is over his contract will be up and they want obviously renew it, so anyone’s guess where he will end up.

    That is 3 goals in 3 games for Werner in Germany. I hope he carries his good form to club level and starts scoring goals. I have observed that Werner is more comfortable playing the system that this new German coach is playing.

    Also Havertz has played and had an assist to his name, Rudiger has also scored, it had been a succesfull international break for Chelsea except the Lukaku and Kante injury problems. And luckily we can afford them the time to rest and heal, and we have Kovacic and Werner to play.

    FIFA have confirmed that the Club World Cup will not be held in Japan due their Covid situation no new venue has yet been announced but seemingly the favourite is Qatar which cuts the travel time by half over Tokyo. Which in the month of December is a small bonus.

    Good 3 points that, poor first half and debut to forget for saul. I was very surprised he started and tuchel had to pull him half time.

    Superb from lukaku considering little was created for him, kovacic also carrying on with his unbelievable form.

    Years gone by we were sure to lose after an International break. Add to that many key players rested and playing Raul when he was clearly not ready for the experience yet. They battled through the first half and once Tuchel sorted things at half time second half much better. Maybe the goal straight after half time deflated Villa whilst settling some nerves however 3-0 is a great result and they deserved it overall. Kovacic very good again and underrated by some and not sure why. Hudson Odoi looked sharp and will add value as the season moves on. Lukaku showed what we have missed for quite some time. 3 points and equal top of the table. Palace beating Spurs 3-0 only added to a joyful evening of football.

    I hope they knew what they did when they took on Saul, cause that was the worst debut I have ever seen and though the change at half time did the trick Villa already had the momentum and though it was never in a million years fair reflection of play it was a great 3 goal must victory as there’s a couple of extreme fixtures next.
