Upgrade on Mkhitarian but not that much. I could see Jose benching him in a lot of the big games too.

he didn't bench him much at Madrid

Mhkitarian is too hot and cold for me, the epitome of a form player. He's a liability in the team at the moment, would love to see Martial play at 10 instead of him at the moment

Mkhitaryan, Mata and Herrera are all poor at the moment. The team is missing Pogba (and Fellaini)

Herrera was atrocious on Saturday. Mhktarian definitely missing Pogba as he has to drop deeper but some of the mistakes he's making are the basics

He didn't have to play like they did against Liverpool last week at Madrid though. In tough away games Ozil is a liability.

I'd be happy with Ozil on a free tbh
You'd have to play the fucker then though!

Fuck that. Arsenal are welcome to him, and he is in me hoop an upgrade on Mkhitaryan. Couple of bad games fair enough, and again for a spell last season, but he'd have to go a long spell of turgid mediocrity before i'd roll out the welcome mat for Ozil.

Agree on both counts there. The game on Wed was crying out for Fellaini i thought.
He's won me over.

what's the story with pogba's injury?
thought it was just a hamstring, and then there was talk of it being more long term

it's mad isnt it. He's just more effective going forward than Herrera. He can get us further up the pitch when we need to go direct, which means Lukaku and Mhki can get closer to the goal.

Koeman gone

wonder if they would go for someone like Tuchel. There aren't many managers at smaller clubs really excelling in the league, in terms of playing good football etc. Can't see them going for the likes of Dyche

Well played by Mourinho today. Young and Valencia as wingbacks balanced out the lack of creativity from central mid. Young in particular was brilliant.

He really needed this after the last 2 games. Nives were being sharpened

Thought poch was mad to leave Kane on last game at 4-0, but even when he limped off I didn't think he'd miss this. Thanks poch

Some of Chelsea's defending last night was the worst I have ever seen.

I'd be confident ahead of the weekend only our record at Stamford Bridge.

I'd be confident ahead of the weekend only Mourinho's approach against other big teams away from home.

Some of Liverpool's defending recently has been as bad as i've seen and we still went and turtled up there.

fair play to spurs

topping your group and still drawing real would be a nightmare though
