I was not a fan of the move to Chelsea at all for CP. Once Odoi and Loftus Cheek return there will be two less spots in the midfield. He would likely not compete for the latter's position... so it probably doesn't matter all that much... but Odoi will be direct competition for him and Mount seems to have already locked up his slot... even though I don't think he played well against S. United. Odoi and Mount are both quite a bit bigger than CP which helps a lot in the EPL and they are both young English players and I think that matters. I am not at all surprised that the narrative on CP has 180-ied in the last week. IMO, he has done pretty well for a 20 year-old getting his 1st taste of the EPL. But the fans for these top clubs are incredibly fickle and if you are not assisting and scoring on a consistent basis then they are going to turn on you... especially when you are not taking 3-points from a home match against Sheffield. One week ago the stories were positive.... fast-forward a week and the fans and media are saying he is a disappointment... even though he was directly responsible for one of the two goals in the last match. I wanted CP to go to a team like the Wolves, West Ham or Everton... a team that is pushing for Europe play even though they are not one of the EPL giants. I think they would have appreciated him more and it would have been a ton easier to maintain a spot in the starting lineup. Most likely scenario IMO, is that CP is on the bench once Odoi returns to full fitness and CP is back to subbing in and perhaps playing on Tues/Wed. I really hope I am wrong.... but if he doesn't start scoring goals and/or racking up assists then it is inevitable.
