Shame he wasn’t when he scored the winning goal against us last season!
Course he did, but he is still shocking .Even Bowen finds
the back of the net a couple of times a season

Exactly. Fair play to Chelsea - striker who always scores against West Ham *and* striker who never scores and is perennially overdue a goal is pretty much our nightmare scenario.

We'll need to score at least 3 to win it!

We just need to start scoring from our chances created.

I think against a sky team you always need at least 3 goals to win. ( see Liverpool result )

Lukaku always scores so that's one, and they will get one of our goals chalked off by var even if it takes 5 minutes searching for the second gunman on the grassy knoll so at least 3 goals needed to sneak a win.

We have been poor finishing chances lately and it's cost us big time.

If we come good in front of goal we will give them a right game.

We've only got 2 in our last 3 which is way down on our average over the season.

Mick needs to turn up for this, no ifs or buts.

Their injury news is promising. Their wing backs being out is good, they are key. We just don't need the Belgian Glenn Murray playing.

We're not going to beat these by attempting to play football. No way. That is why I advocate nullifying their threat, by lumping it up
19th Century football! Respect the point!😉

Moyes confirmed Cresswell is in ‘light training’ during his press conference today. I reckon he’ll sit this game out too.

"Aaron Cresswell is back in training. He’s done a bit of light training so we’ll take a look at that. Otherwise we’re okay, other than Angelo Ogbonna being out with his cruciate. In the main, we’ve got everybody fit though."

In their positions, these players are arguably the best on offer in the Prem, imho, as much as I consider Declan to be within touching distance of Jorginho, such that, if the latter is fully fit, and the former is feeling his way back from a knock, there isn't going to be anything separating them tomorrow.

Fornals the wolf, chasing, harrying, but importantly retaining the ball once he's won it, is however my shout for the key to this match. Brighton took heart from him being subbed off last match, even if I can see the logic for why Moyes did that.

I would imagine he'll be giving Cresswell more than the once over to find out if he can play. I wouldn't be surprised to see Cresswell start and we sure do need him.

I’d love to win this but I’m also a realist. James vs Masuaku should be quite funny to watch for the neutral. Johnson back at LB for me who will handle himself admirably but ultimately, James will get the better of him.

And if we’re to have a chance of getting something, could someone remind our attackers to start turning up?

I look forward to seeing a good entertaining game. Provided we play much, much better than we have been and put away some chances, I will be happy.

WARNING CHAPS, "famous last words" moment incoming...

Is it just me or does Chelsea's team not look as strong on paper as it has in recent seasons?

I think you’re right. But I would also say Tuchel is the best in the world right now, very tactically astute.
