Nice change for Jorgi to play a killer pass. Makes a change from v WBA when he was involved in most of the Baggies goals.

I agree. MM's turn (and shot), excellent. But Jorgi's high percentage of successful passing results from his rarely risking a forward pass of any kind, let alone one hit at the right pace in the right place for MM to turn. Hence my remark.

Brilliant Chelsea. Again proving why we are easily England's best and most successful club in Europe. As I said ages ago Chelsea to see off Real Madrid in the semi and set up an all English final with two BIG clubs unlike the embarrassment last time of lowly Liverpool and Spurs that damaged English football's reputation!

There is no way on Gods Warthe that a team as crap as Porto should be in the Champions League. It shows how rubbish the Spanish League is. Madrid should be the only Spanish club allowed in - and England’s club allowance should be at least 8 if you do it on quality. Championship clubs should be allowed to compete in the Europa. Ridiculous.

Werner and Havertz are the two worst forwards I’ve seen in the PL. Chelsea can not expect to win titles with Mount and company as goal scorers. Tuchel has to get rid of his compatriots and get some real forwards if he wants to win titles.

For crying out loud Tuchel, leave Werner out of the team. The guy is shot to pieces. You do not re-establish confidence by continuing to play him. That is evidently not working, and the pressure to deliver is obviously too much for him. Give him a spell in the reserves, give him time to build back his confidence. He is a luxury we just cannot afford at the moment.

The trouble is Werner is actually playing well and creating chances for other players. They need to start with Giroud or Abrahams up front with Werner playing behind when he plays. Hopefully Pulisic is returning to form now.

Foden is good at pretty much everything shoot, volley, dribble, twist turn, tackle, solid in the challenge, do step overs, back heels, slide rule passes, he's strong, stays on his feet, has great pace and energy with a never say die attitude, that's one dimension I'd look for in any player.

Foden's movement is second to none and he is explosive. Mason Mount is similar to Lampard easy on the eye. If you need to win a game you are better off with Foden than Mount

Id imagine Kane will be the first name on the sheet.
Both seem like "good" players but Foden is playing amongst outstanding teammates (like Sterling) for club & im not convinced Mount (whilst improving) stands out in the biggest games....so im still hoping to be convinced.

Chelsea were rarely troubled but not great in truth - Porto fought harder, kept the ball better, and looked more dangerous most of the time. But two sensational finishes from the Englishmen were the difference.

Werner is perfect for next week. IF we can work on our passing from deep to release him and not play possession all the time. Look at how PSG got Mbappe his goals against Bayern tonight - that’s how we can see the best from Werner. The way we’re going we’ve learnt nothing from the Salah disaster and are well on course to history repeating.

There is of course no doubt there are also divers in the EPL, but you don't see a whole game plan of a team dragging the game into the gutter like Porto did last night.

Brilliant Chelsea. Again proving why we are easily England's best and most successful club in Europe. As I said ages ago Chelsea to see off Real Madrid in the semi and set up an all English final with two BIG clubs unlike the embarrassment last time of lowly Liverpool and Spurs that damaged English football's reputation!

For crying out loud Tuchel, leave Werner out of the team. The guy is shot to pieces. You do not re-establish confidence by continuing to play him. That is evidently not working, and the pressure to deliver is obviously too much for him. Give him a spell in the reserves, give him time to build back his confidence. He is a luxury we just cannot afford at the moment.
