Something like 4-0 to Jose and his rabble, so all the people who have completely written them off after 2 matches start changing their minds again.

If West Brom play as poorly as they did against City then this should be a walk in the park for Chelsea.

Have to win this....anything less and questions really need to be asked.

Terry will score 100%.

Myhill really has perfected the art of standing like a dummy and watching the ball trickle into the net.

I don't really know what Pulis was thinking with his team selection here, every single one of WBA's defensive players can't run, soon as a Chelsea player breaks into a sprint they're out of the game.

I don't get why Jose is playing Willian in that number ten position. His pace and defensive contributions make him suited to the wing role in a Mourinho team. With Pedro coming in I can see why he isn't playing there now but he really doesn't suit this central position.

Really? Considering how unaccustomed he is to the role I thought he did alright. Great play by him for the second goal.

I'm not saying he had an awful half - I'm just saying he's wasted there, his skillset is much more suited to that wing role. I'd rather use him as a backup winger to come off the bench when you need more a more defensive setup. If I were Jose I'd be looking for a box to box midfielder to partner Matic so I could play Fabregas as the number ten in between Hazard and Pedro.

I agree, I don't rate Willian at all, he's an ATTACKING midfielder and he's shite at attacking but good defensively, Chelsea would look a lot better with Matic holding, Fabregas and a new signing in midfield, have Fabregas roaming and pulling the strings and a box to box midfielder, like Ramires, but better.

Can't see what Terry is supposed to have done there. Need another replay.
