    Yeah, the whole team was just poor.

    At least Mount and Willian were running around still.

    If Lampard watched the first hour and thought subbing both his wide attackers off would solve anything he's mistaken.

    they weren't prioritizing putting him on the ball much..Though that was going to change in the second half but I guess not.

    I just caught up on DVR, and the one thing I wanted to mention was:
    38' minute. That was the very first pass Emerson made to Pulisic. And he literally had no other choice.
    How does he play directly behind Pulisic and wait 38 minutes before his first pass to him?

    How Emerson gets to stay on while Willian and CP get the hook is beyond me. Emerson is one of the main reasons CP is struggling.

    Chelsea look like a young squad struggling with schedule congestion.
    Pulisic had a couple nice moments that no other Chelsea attacker has had today. As mentioned above, getting very little from the attacking portion of the lineup.

    Emerson and Pulisic is just a terrible combo

    Commentator loves Odoi... says he is a ray of sparkling talent. I am waiting to see it. CMon Hudson. Cmon Chelsea. This is pathetic.

    Haha. That's a goal. Mount and the linesman blew that one.

    How Frank can't see it is beyond me. The last two games have been more of the same.... ball goes to Emerson... back pass to the D. Pulisic in isolation. Now... yet again... Chelsea give up the goal after CP leaves and they have no offensive answer.

    I don't think it is funny :-(. Mount caught sleeping on that one... even the keeper is screaming at them to move up. Pitiful

    Emerson straight up sucks, and a midfield of Kante/Jorginho doesn’t work because Mount isn’t creative enough.

    No combination at all. Emerson never even looked pulis way for the entire first half

    LMAO. He said "array of attacking talent." As in the whole set of attackers out there.

    Lack of hunger and being selfish is not how you win EPL games. Lumpy going to take some heat after today.

    There is going to be a shake-up and I get the feeling CP is going to take it on the chin. Back to the bench even though Odoi has done next to nothing. Can they play all of their games on the road?

    He should but he won't. Pulisic will.

    Glad CP wasn't part of that horrible display. CHO almost give one away, and then Mount keeps the attacker onside.

    Pulisic probably could benefit from a bit of a break anyway; he hasn’t been great for a couple weeks and it would be good squad management.

    whether Pulisic is on the bench or not Chelsea looked poor to average last few games and that is on the manager.

    I don't often complain about camerawork in the Premier League, but this camera operator needs to zoom out and calm down. I feel like I'm watching an MLS game on Fox - it's making me nauseous.
