Routine win, but so disappointed with the team we put out.

All the talk during the week was playing the kids, have half dozen train with the first team and then only one makes the bench. Meh.

Trophy to save Frank's job at the end of the season?

Werner and Havertz needed the confidence.

And we'd still be winning that game with 3 or 4 gun kids in the team/squad.
That is still very likely but I can understand Lampard wanting to take no chances with the way the league form has dropped off.

9 spots of the bench mate, he can still play a strong side and have the kids in there too.
Didn't see your bench just the starting lineup. Yeah that's a bit silly not to have a few you can chuck on once the game is sewn up.

Seemed like a lot of Chelsea fringe players got game time.

Just as important as playing kids (as much as we all like seeing kids come through).

Same as always for Brighton. Pretty play with no end product.
And it's not that Potter hasn't got a recognised ST out there this time.

Really do have to start to question his setup that he can't get players like Maupay getting chances created from decent players like Trossard and Gross.

Not losing any sleep over the Leeds result. It was a good rest for the boys in a pretty compressed league fixture.

Have a feeling the FA Cup will be scrapped if too many catch up fixtures accumulate for all divisions. There's nowhere else to fit them in and no way to extend the season if the Euros go ahead as expected.
