      Tough game this, Chelsea are better than their bare results.

      They will have to come for us at home which may be a help, but we will have to be better on the counter than we were at midweek.

      We neep to keep adding to the points total where possible, with that in mind I'd take anything other than a loss here.

      It's the only real area of improvement for this team - converting decent performances against big teams away from home into three points.

      Gini the only change for Milner?

      I think Gomez may get a shot, I'm hoping if he does it's not at right back, hes quite clunky in that position, and it weakens our attack when he plays there as opposed to Trent.

      Klopp may want to give Matip a game off though.

      Too much negativity on these boards for me, Chavs away isn't as frought with danger as it once was, Kante or no Kante it's still a test but i guarantee they are more worried than we are,

      They will be well organised and be a danger if allowed to play their way, but like I said they will be more concerned with stopping us playing our way and that will in turn open up the spaces to which we can exploit,

      I can see us playing a high line and be in their faces aka Arsenal, stifle their movement win the ball in their own half and gegenpress the actual sh*te out of them,

      Really can't see anything other than another win as the Red machine marches towards the league title.

      So those who think it’s not an easy game are being negative?

      Playing there is not easy. We squeezed out a draw last year thanks to a worldlie from Sturridge late in the game and played us tough in the Super Cup game that we won on penalties.

      Surely we are the better team but this is a game that needs to be handled with caution and not think we’re going to run them off the field.

      Think it will be a very close game either team could win but if we put in a performance and have our shooting boots on then we should win

      Arguably not the greatest Chelsea side we have battled the last 10-15 years, but they will play us tough (like every other team does) no doubt.
      But, I’m more confident going to their place and winning then going to old trafford.
      2-0 us

      I feel we have to revert back to the high consistent press against these.
      We can’t allow them to dictate the middle of the park. Can’t allow their defenders to settle on the ball. And cut their forwards service down to a minimum.
      Gini Fab and Naby in the middle, back five as usual and front three et al !
      Gone for 2-0 to the Red Men.
      Gonna be a battle but thinking we will come out on top if we press them hard. Saido and Mo with two assists from Bob 😁

      Gotta emulate what City did yesterday, come back from a defeat with anger showing it was just a small blip and rip these plastics apart.

      Our toughest game of the season so far and I wouldn't be looking to see and real changes.

      Mini back in for Milner.

      They don't have a hazard that can move in all directions and unpredictable. Lampard is trying to get them to perform like the old chelsea. They move fast in a predictable pattern, we have to stifle their movement and put pressure on their defence that is their weakest link. Kante is getting far too much compliment, we have to get someone to bully him and not allow him to the space and time and being showy and see how he performs.

      Slightly nervous as Chelsea are a big club and it's at the Bridge. Guess they'll be just as nervous though.

      Not sure I'd take a point if it were offered, because if both teams play well, we win.

      Have to remember titles are not decided in the first half dozen games or so.
