Played poorly against a better team.

Wes tries but isn't good enough. Konsa played his worst game for us. Elmo huffed and puffed but isn't as good as Guilbert. Midfield was okay but not at their best.

Mings is bothering me. A silly error every game at the moment. He had more than one tonight. I know that he is getting used to PL football but he needs to fix up.

One positive is that it's only one off the goal difference.

Heaton did well. Wes... just why?

Plus this,

Wes, can't quite remember when I've last seen a Premiership player so relaxed throughout a game

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.

2-1 doesn't really tell the whole story, they could easily have had 6 or 7 tonight.

Whenever the ball is kicked forward, Wesley appears to be thirty yards away from where it is aimed for.

The player making the pass has to take some responsibility for that.

Three or four moments of quality - two of them by Heaton - but apart from that we were below par.  Lack of concentration at the back worries me, as does our inability to keep possession, and Wesley.

It was obvious that we were getting done down the left and Conor was not offering any protection to Target who was all over the place.
So what does Smith do to correct the situation? Fuck all which sadly is typical of his lack of game management.
Do we really have no other option than to persist with Weseley?
Again piss poor by our management.

Disappointed with the result, only listened so hard to judge the performance. Bruno on WM said it was a battling performance, we need that but we need much more to progress.
Not too downhearted, back us to stop Kojaks progress on Sunday.

Not the end of the world. They clearly have better players than we have but defending was poor tonight from both centre halves. We gave the ball away too easily also. Jack is wasted out wide on the left though, looks a bit frustrated to me also.
Onto Sunday.

As poor as we were, you have to give credit to Chelsea. They were fluid tonight. It's where we want to be and let's be honest, this squad is all about staying up. Against Wolves we were crap, tonight we had little say in the matter.

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


Missed the good save he made?

Sloppy, casual, call it what you will, it wasnít good enough across the park.

Hourihane was horrible, Konsa had a mare, Targett the same, McGinn and Grealish almost anonymous. As for Wesley, I despair, whatever did we see in him, he makes Heskey look like Shearer in his pomp. Smith doesnít come out smelling of roses either, piss poor substitutions yet again.

It does annoy me a bit that tomorrow it'll be about how Lampard has gotten some kind of revenge or one over on his old mate, conveniently leaving out the fact that he's playing with our striker and a midfield which includes Willian and Kante.

I love DS but his game management worries me at times.
