      Be stunned if either new signing make the bench never mind start with no time spent training with us.

      Only calls I see is Matip or Joe and Gini or Keita. Personally for this one id play Joe st right back ans start Matip with VVD.Id have concerns with TAA positional play v Werner

      Chelsea being at home and having a more attacking outlook with their new signings, I think will actually suit us.
      We are going to score, the question is how many will they. Our back line need to start churning out performances. We need to start limiting opposition chances around our box, which was the key component to our results last season, even if it does dull down our attacking threat.

      Totally right. We need our back down locked and shut well to get points from this one.

      dont like to see new guys rushed straight in, it smacks a wee bit of panic...See Man Utd / Fernandes.

      Indo not agree that we should start Trent on the bench . Want him starting at right back. Werner doesn't scare me.

      Type of game to regain defensive confidence. Need high energy defending not dawdling out the way we did against Leeds.

      Expect the midfield of Fab, Hendo and Gini and they will have to work hard to protect the back 4. Mo could be the match winner, he looked sharpe against Leeds and his pace on the break will damage them.

      1-3

      Let’s get this straight, we will not be seeing either of our new boys today, I’d be stunned if Jürgen were to play either without time spent at Melwood acclimatising with their new surroundings, new team mates and fitting into Jürgen’s philosophy, what he expects from them and adopting a new regime for each player, it could be a week at least before we see any action from them and even that is a bit quick,

      Be patient ppl, it won’t take long for us to be in full flow, and salivating waiting for us to play again!

      I agree with this. UTD chucked Van Der Beek straight in and I immediately thought, "you have no plan, you are just hoping big names will work it out." There are caveats of course. Ancelotti put James in but what choice was there. It's not like he had a purring team and he is just looking long term, to spice things up. Everton want to get rid of about 9 of their starting 11 and there is no need for delay. Ole and the popular press would have us believe Utd are a 1 or 2 players away from a revolution.. bollocks!!. They are grasping. Top managers like Klopp and Pep make them realise how hard it is. UTD are 2-3 iterations from success  ... provided they have a long term successful strategy and a top manager and owner comes along... otherwise they are a business trying to make cash until a takeover relieves them of the risk

      This is going to be a cracker. No fans does away with the home advantage slightly. Lampard has added a bit of extra edge to it. I don't mind him having a pop at us. I like Lampard, don't think he curries favour with anyone. Maybe a bit lucky to land a big job so early on but he's spent close on £130m. Made up for the 2019 transfer ban. He has on the face of it bought quality. Lets see how he deals with us.

      Respect will be thin on the ground, he'll come at us so we have to see off this mouthy kid.

      If our defence behaves today, we win.  Looking forward to this now, fancy both new signings to be on the bench.

      I think Chelsea have a couple of players capable of scoring goals without big defensive errors. 

      Think it's going to be a tough ask for either side to manage a clean sheet today.

      Same. He's pocketed better players than Werner in the past. We shouldn't be nullifying one of our attacking threats to counter one of theirs, it should be the other way around

      Think your right.With Ole it's just chuck a few more in and see how it pans out. It will be hit and miss all season, stronger in the second half when Ole works out his best 11. For those reasons and a few more besides I don't see them being serious title contenders. 3 games without a win and I'll be "sack Ole"...couple of decent results and he'll be back in favour. It'll mean they could drag on in a kind of limbo for the next few years.

      This is true. Just no gifts today please. If they score a good goal fair play.

      Fatter Frank getting above his station, f**k sake, we were winning titles before he dropped through his Mama’s curtains, he’d do well to remember football existed before Russian Roubles afforded him his pieces of silver, I’ll make a prediction here & now, it matters not a jot who he brings to the table, he won’t win another title so long as Jürgen is King of the castle.

      Werners pace a problem ?
      Vardys wasnt 🤷‍♂️
      I wanted to refresh my prediction, had us down for 2:3 win if I remember. Wanted to change it to 2:4 but left it too late.

      We sit 5 yards deeper, and pace will be nullified.

      What have they got to nullify our attack ?

      Not much me thinks.

      Think Gini and Bob will rise to the occasion today, and Fat  Frank May be looking for some new excuses.

      Excited for this match but I have to keep my cool and my BP in check  :D

      Tbh I'd take a draw now but I would seriously love us to beat these and teach them a thing or two, would love to see Thiago on the bench, I think his presence would be a boost.

       We need to be on the front foot from the off and keep our concentration for the full 90, no messing about today lads, go for it.
