Thought Marvellous and Duggie played well tonight. SJM put a good shift in too

Didnít think we played that badly, they were very organised, played effectively and were often first to every second ball. Ref let a lot of stuff go I thought, which didnít help us

They had a plan with better players to execute it.

We were second to most stuff and made some silly mistakes.

No point blaming Wesley, it just wasn't his night and was given nothing.

They're just a better team from what I saw. They pressured our defenders into mistakes and were more coherent, and sharper, all over the pitch.

Shite. 2-1 flattered us to be perfectly honest.

No complaints. They were miles better. Miracle we only lost 2-1 really.

Just move on from this as it's rare anyone actually wins at Chelsea. I know West Ham did but Chelsea didn't have Kante or Tammy starting who are huge for them.

Leicester and Sheffield going to be tough but we can get draws from those if we play well.

Dean and his subs....don't really get how Kodjia can stay an unused sub when we're losing. He is obviously leaving in January.

Probably our worst performance of the season, so flat. Chelsea couldve had atleast 4 easily.

Biggest issue for me with that one is we were getting over ran all game but we stuck with 4-3-3 throughout, it needed changing.

Must have been watching a different game to the rest of you, felt we held our own pretty well against a team that will be in the top 3 come May. The fact that the Chavski fans were whistling for full time confirms that.

Wesley isolated again and doesn't work hard enough to get involved, good effort but beaten by a better team.

Wesley's like a brick wall. The ball just comes back off him.

Proper shit performance overall but letís keep some perspective...losing 2-1 at Chelsea isnít a bad result or critical to our season, especially considering they have been top 6 for years and have spent countless millions compared to our newly assembled squad playing first season back in the PL.

We made so many individual errors, and somehow got away with them.

Rubbish.  The defence is really poor at the moment.  Konsa was terrible, and Mings just can't concentrate for a full 90 minutes.  Targett was as bad as he was against Wolves.  McGinn has been anonymous for weeks now, Hourihane was weak, and Wesley is the biggest waste of money since all of our other nightmares up front.  One point off the relegation places, need a striker, urgently.

Not the worst result but a poor performance overall and yet we showed glimspes of decent play.

This

Ummm. Never looked like scoring again though. Kepa had nothing to do. i think you're being kind

How wesley gets 90 mins every week I dont know. He may come good, but as sit stands he doesnt deserve the shirt
