Leicester Home Drew 2 – 2

Back to a more familiar Southampton line up to face Leicester, with Peraud, Lyanco and Broja all making way – the last-in-first-out principle. Somehow Tella made it into the starting XI and impressed with his enthusiasm, which has never been in doubt. He also contributed an assist as part of a corner routine that surprised […]

Watford Away Won 0 – 1

Ward-Prowse and Elyounoussi returned to the side at Watford but Broja remained absent due to the injury he received against Burnley (so he would have been unavailable at Chelsea anyway, notwithstanding contractual reasons) and Walker-Peters filled in at left back, as he does when the opposition have pacy attackers.

Chelsea Away Carabao EFL Cup 4th Round Drew 1 – 1 Lost 4 – 3 on Penalties

When a manager of one of the elite clubs starts on about a crowded fixture list just days before a League Cup tie, you know what’s coming. Thus with Chelsea‘s Thomas Tuchel: his XI to face Southampton was much changed from their Premier League starters, but because of the depth of his squad, most (but not […]
