    Yeah, I suppose he did say he wanted the backline to stay the same for most games.

    In other news Torres is out with a muscular injury. Always something that sets him back isn't there, shame.
    Bertrand also out

    Meh, Torres will probably be average for now. I don't think we'll see shocking performances but I'd prefer us playing demba ba more tbh. He played really well vs norwich and deserves a chance to play after that performance in the league vs west brom. They're a typically counter attacking team anyway, so a physical presence would be great due to the fact we struggle to get behind. Azpi should play as we'd need to cross from out wide when they narrow down.

    Good player to be honest, probably the tactics.
    I explained the reason for his poor form already, even mourinho explained it a month ago. We struggle to get in behind defences, he needs to be in between the lines but we struggle to keep possession in the final third for him to do so. So either we play him with mata who has the guile to keep possession in those areas then allowing hazard to play inbetween the lines or get behind the lines or we play schurrle with him as he's able to go wide and go behind the defence which makes space for other players like hazard to play.

    I originally thought our third team could stay up in the league, but after this I've changed my opinion, our 3rd choice team/on loan players could make a solid midtable position.

    3-1 (hopefully).

    Farfan and Huntelaar are still injured, which is great news for us.

    Well, we already know aboout Boateng, Draxler and their lanky striker Dzalai so nothing new I guess.

    Someone like Boateng would've been nice to have in our team as a centre midifield option. He's got a good balance of aggression and technique, and he's got a decent shot. Would've been relatively cheap too. Saying that Mourinho is not a fan of his (apparent) priorities like hairdressing

    Hazard was so much better under Rafa last season. Even Roberto, until he burnt him out...

    I think it's because Rafa knew how to rotate him and keep him fresh.
    Hazard's recent performances are due more to tactics than rotation.

    Missed the Ramires/Mikel partnership. It's been real. Not too sure about Oscar, he seems to have dipped a bit

    Nah that's the only one. The other time he took the ball when the keeper bounced it but couldn't finish it off (Hazard did instead)
