Che did a lot of good work as did Ings, think Walcott will be a great asset for us this year, but we need Redmond to do something.Coyr.

I'm sure we'll get treated to another CB's obituary again in the verdict but that second Werner goal was something special.
Will Adams ever calm down for his final touch always wants to blast it when placing it may be better. Ings as good as ever.
Big JV what can you say, all it took was a haircut and now he looks solid at the back and places headers.
Tella looked good in his brief appearance

Theo did well on his return.

Bednarek played his part in all 3 Chelsea goals and despite his saves, McCarthy still struggles with some of the basics and yet again passed it to the opposition 25 yards out, when it was easier to pass wide or hoof it.
We looked good going forward though and Adams did well with an assist and a goal. Ings was unlucky not to score 2 or 3 and with more composure KWP and Walcott could also have scored.
Walcott got better as the game progressed, so will hopefully be an asset - can he play next week ?
There was lots of backward passing but away to Chelsea, that is to be expected and the boys stuck to the game plan, frustrated them and then waited for the opportunities.
A deserved draw - only 6% less possession than the home team, plus 2 more shots than them, including 1 more than them on target.
Lampard tried to shut up shop at the end, but it backfired big time !!

I personally think we have an average Premiership defence...certainly nothing special but to constantly say we're dodgy at the back shows a lack of understanding of the modern game .
Sky and BT are hardly going to throw literally billions at Prem football clubs if the end product was dreary defensive football that we all endured in the past.
Go on Youtube and watch a game from the 80s or even 90s..its bloody awful . Probably better defenders though, if that's what turns you on.
