Old girl sounds like a real character. I really am missing so much not going to these games.

As if you’ve ever been to a match

Tsimikas should have been on a lot earlier for Robertson.

Maybe he could have sent him in Sadio"s position and left robbo on. He's better going forward than actually defending. He could offer something different. Great to see mo, elliot and trent combining so well yesterday, the right side was fantastic.

Did I say I have? Like I say, with the likes of you (do you go to games, I can't tell) and "old girl", I'll surely learn many new things about football.

I would have liked to see a bit more of those long shots. 

The lack of 'longer' shots is a bit of a hindrance over a 40+ game season. It probably costs us about a dozen goals a season.

I think chamberlain should've been brought on for this purpose. He's the only one in our squad that regularly hits the target from long range. The little Brazilian with a back problem would've been perfect yesterday.

No mate. Just going side to side for 45 minutes with the odd high ball lofted in from distance was all we could do yesterday as they had 10 men.

I know what we did do, I’m just saying the best way to get through defensive teams is quick passing and moving. Like (dare I say it) Man City do, or Arsenal when they were good under Wenger.

Pass & move it’s the Liverpool groove

Romelu Lukaku – CF

Met Matip and Van Dijk blow-for-blow, even when he was isolated in attack. Did a very good job holding up the ball considering the circumstances, brought his teammates into play in some dangerous sequences and got off a couple of very good shots – there is not much else that can be asked from a centre-forward in our position.

 

The above from the" we aint got no history" website who also reckoned the pen was contentious and Manc Taylor did them no favours, FFS

100 percent a penalty and the ref only let the game flow when it was liverpool on the recieving end of a foul. That's not bias they should rewatch the game, I was getting genuinely annoyed by the inconsistency of the refs decisions. It was an appalingly officiated game and he wouldn't of even given the pen or card if VAR hadn't pulled him up on it.

One point that needs making is that Tuchel’s decision not to take off a forward was totally vindicated. We could never relax because of their threat in the break, and we couldn’t throw everyone forward. 90% of managers take off a forward when a midfielder or defender gets a red in that situation, and it just invites pressure. 

He took off his no. 10 - Havertz. He is their 2nd most forward player and replaced him with a centre back

Another thing that I could to get my head round was the timing of the henderson substitution and his replacement.

 

We’ve got a corner at the kop and he takes off our 6”2 captain for our smallest player. 
 

There’s an old girl who sits behind me and she knows her stuff. When she seen it was Thiago coming on she shouted out “oh what the fucks he gonna do”. Did raise a few laughs like but she was spot on.

Henderson was outside the box with Fabinho defending the counter for our corners

Taylors use of the advantage law fucked us over a few times I think 4 fouls in our favour over the course of the game says it all.

That’s just new signing honeymoon period stuff.

Yeah I can see that but its BS. I think he won 1 battle in the 90 mins ( against Joel). For me he has always been a flat track bully.

I know we don't know how the second half would have panned out without the sending off and the 10 men may have actually made it more difficult for us.  But realistically I think Chelsea would have gone on to win the match so it was a good point for us in that respect, but it's concerning how much better they looked than us once they took control of the first half.  

Assuming we make no more signings Chelsea will finish comfortably ahead of us.

They’re just much fitter right now.  Our midfield is in dire position.

 

That’ll be a consistent problem this season tbf but can’t get much worse than how it’s started.

Yep the midfield situation will almost certainly come back to bite us on the arse, can't believe some people are so dismissive of it.

Said earlier in the thread I was made up when Kante went off. He’s brilliant him

I like Kante but I thought he was awful. Kept giving the ball back to us.

Im pretty confident we would had won the game if Chelsea had not got a player sent off.

I was thinking the same. Momentum was with us after the equaliser, but it’s sometimes tougher to break down ten men just putting everything into keeping you out and playing on the break. Let alone a unit like Chelsea.

I agree with Dave's assessment. We would probably have had more chances against 11 men , but we would certainly have had more problems at our end also.
