West Ham Utd 0-0 Chelsea (23/09/18)

Post by My_Sobriquet » Sun Sep 16, 2018 7:11 pm

Another TV game

1.30pm kick off at the LS

————- Fabianski ————-
Zaba balbuena diop Masuaku
— obiang rice wilshere———
Yarmalenko Arnie Anderson

50/50 for me between noble and Wilshere, I think Wilshere is the better player and noble was poor today but loathed to change a winning team.

Funny you say that, Carragher was regularly lauding the quality of our midfield 3 today.

I agree though that it should be a case of Noble or Wilshere as they are too similar to play together. Today was the first time Pellers has started a balanced team and it showed, if we are to play a flat back 4 we need to continue to play at least two defensive mids.

I'd pick the same team as today but might give Zaba a rest as I don't think he'll be able to cope with the pace of Hazard, Willian or Pedro if they target him.

I think Anderson has the attributes to play the noble role excellently as does lanzini.

I don’t think Noble had a bad game at all. I think Wilshere is the better footballer of the two but the midfield remains unchanged for me.

I’d agree with changing Zaba for Fredericks. I don’t think he’s got the legs for Alonso/Hazard. A monumental test for Fredericks too, though. His pace will be required however, which is a trait Zaba doesn’t have. Shame we can’t mould the two together.

Chelsea look good, we look like we will still concede easily. Defence was static against full backs crosses a few times today and tried to step up when Niasse was left on his own 8 yards out and really should’ve scored. That falls to Giroud it hits the back of the net.

I’ll take a draw all day long but think we will lose by two or three.

Noble has earned his start against their lot. Wilshere is yet to have a decent 45 for us.

I think the team without Wilshere looked like a pipe that had had a blockage cleared. We just moved the ball quickly and easily through midfield with obiang and Noble alternating positions. Balanced midfield, don't change it!

Anyone know what happened to Ryan Fredericks this weekend? Was he injured or dropped?

Hazard/Pedro/Willian latching on to Zabaleta with Alonso overlapping is my only concern ahead of this one. Potentialyl Fredericks for Zabaleta but otherwise stick with the same team as yesterday.

That´s a good point. Think we have the vice-versa situation:

Fredericks has pace and offers a lot in the offensive, but has been awful in defensive duties so far.

Zabaleta is his counterpart.

Difficult to decide, who should play.

A Zabaletricks or Fredereta would be fine

Ogbonna for Balbuena and Chicha for Noble. We can get something from this!
