    Pulisic finally makes a mistake, a loose touch which results in a turnover, which evveeeeeeeeeeentually results into Porto's best chance, which our Mexican friend skies over the goal

    Pulisic and Chillwell don't know what each other are going to do.

    Perfect defending against Pulisic on that play. Leaves him frustrated as well. Think he's getting frustrated with his teammates as well, who've not been up to par

    Kante hasn't lost his tackling; it's still sublime.

    I think that's the answer to why Mount was initially on the left - hope that they'll work together better.

    Man Chelsea are lucky Porto are having such a poor game in the attacking 3rd. They've been really bad

    Chelsea need to be braver with their long passes. They always hesitate and then pass it short.

    Porto are simply hacking Pulisic every time he touches the ball, while Mount and Kai just aren't getting on the ball enough.

    It's effective defense.

    havertz shouldve had at least 1 if not 2 assists, utterly squandered two great chances

    Porto going to have to take chances this half, pull more players forward. Should be an interesting half. Pulisic might only have to beat 1 instead of 2-3.

    Yea well, Chelsea fullbacks have a propensity to put him in situations where he receives the ball running into 3 defenders. They seem to think that's a good thing

    I'm honestly questioning my choice of watching Pulisic over Munich-PSG

    Considering Chelsea are trying to scrape out a draw and/or single goal and kill this thing, and not do an all out attack, I think CP played well. He held into the ball for the most part and drew time-killing fouls.

    that said, please remind me to not check the Twitter cesspool at half-time for comments/opinions. That would spare me from the brilliant first half analysis from some fans that says things like “Pulisic is ass,” “Pulisic has no first touch” and “Replace CP with Werner or CHO at half.” The latter opinions must have an agenda for their favorite player, of course.

    As I was saying...he was set to skin the entire backline, and they hacked him as he was in the process. Draws a yellow though

    Kovacic has been Chelsea's MVP, while Pulisic their best player
