I agree with Jermaine Defoe's post match analysis, had it been Andy Carroll on the end of that cross from Robert Snodgrass, that would've been in the back of the net
I think the point that Jermaine and possibly yourself are missing is - Would Andy Carroll have been in the position to score from that Snodgrass cross ?
And for the people criticising Anderson for his performance I think you're probably forgetting that we were on the back foot for most of the match and the Brazilian would have been under orders to defend , everyone bar Antonio was behind the ball working to keep Chelsea out .
Had we lost today morale would have taken a tumble but as it is we defended magnificently something we hadn't done all season , at least we now know that Pellegrini has it in his locker .
Yes , it ended up 0-0 , yes we were on the back foot for most of the game but we created two of the clearest chances in the 90 minutes - Antonio needed to keep it low and wide of the keeper and Yarmo just had to nod it in but we're great at scoring from our seats aren't we ?
Thought Noble was magnificent , never stopped running , only Zabaleta was more magnificent , funny that the two older players put in the best performances , every one else were just brilliant .
That will have done us even more good than last week .
