    Pulisic with a chance but stuffed by the goal keeper near the line. Also took a "hopeful" shot which was well wide from distance.

    Early dominance by Chelsea. I could learn to like this team.

    Willian earns a yellow with a tactical foul.

    Zaha? yellow card. Other than that he's been quiet.

    Eventually one of these free-kicks on the edge of their box has got to 'happen' for us.

    Quiet pretty much describes the collective Crystal Palace effort.

    Crystal gets their first FK (shot ?) while Emerson picks up a Yellow.

    Scrappy stuff but credit to Hodgson for that. Breaking up play and strictly working for the counter. Too many late challenges out there, can easily see a second yellow for someone today. Probably for a tackle on zaha.

    Missing some of the balls from jorginho that stretches an opposition.

    Will need to be very disciplined to break then down and find a gap.

    Tough game. Palace are parking that bus and we need to be more creative to break them down.


    More yellow cards than shots on target.


    I wonder if Sarri ever watches Chelsea this season? I wonder what he thinks of our current team. Sarri did some good things with our style of play albeit we were a little static and predictable at times under his management. I’m sure Sarri wouldn’t recognise a lot of our younger players as notoriously he never bothered to watch the youth teams. Still, I wonder what his thoughts are on our current players and footballing style. Post-Sarri ball.

    Pretty drab stuff so far. Mike Dean picking up where the CL ref left off. Yellows around!

    Our service in the final third has been really beenn poor. We need to get more width.

    CHO would be a good sub right now. Run at them and put them on the back foot a little. Bit too comfortable for them in that first half.

    My thinking too. Need to have attacks coming from out wide not just an occasional cross from James.

    Ugh, right idea there, just too much on the pass to Emerson.
