We get to welcome Chelsea to the Cottage for a Monday evening 8 o’clock kickoff
So after a couple of good results, I think we played really well in both games and were unlucky not to score more?
This is the game that I look forward to most, even though, apart from last season, we rarely got the result we deserved we’ve always “been up” for the game.
Iwobi played really well against Luton, I was very tempted to start him rather than Willian however, giving a player a chance to play against one of their previous teams nearly always seams to give them a boost.
Hopefully Bassey’s injury isn’t too bad and he’ll be on the bench, I’ve an idea that we’ll see more of him towards the end of the season as he’ll be Tim’s “long term” replacement.
Raul, Vinicius or Muniz is a bit of a conundrum, Vinicius has scored a couple and I’m sure he’d like to repeat last season, Raul I’m sure will “come good”, hopefully once he gets a goal the flood gates will open, and Muniz is the future? there must be a reason why he wasn’t sent out on loan again?
Chelsea have their own issues, don’t laugh, having spent millions/billions on their squad they’re still struggling. I’m sure they’ll turn their league form around, I just hope it doesn’t start with this game.
Our recent record against Chelsea, apart from last season, is dreadful with only 2 wins, 13 losses and 5 draws
my team would be…
