    My take on the Chelsea defeat

    Evening ffellow Yids.
    Your'e pretty much much spot on with what you saw and said LTS and as much as i hate to admit it,Chelsea always looked fairly comfortable during the 90mins, apart from the 10 or so mins in the second half as mentioned by Di Matteo in his post match interview when we went 2-1 up.
    For me,this was the time for us to step it up a gear,to focus,stop giving the ball away cheaply and then go hunting for that next goal which i'm sure would have put this game to bed.
    Sadly without the likes of Bale terrorising thier left flank and bringing in god knows what sot of challenges from denders and Dembeles' driving abilitys going forward then the result would have been different.
    I spoke to a Chelsea fan today and he actually said how pleased he was to see Bale and Dembele not starting,which i'm sure was the same feeling for Di Matteo and his squad,exactly the same for us,had Mata and Hazard had not been playing and fair play to AVB for not blaming our loss on 20% of the favouered team missing.
    Still would have liked to started with ADE and DEFOE up front which would have definately given more of the defence to cope with.
    Lets just hope that when we meet them at the Bridge,they have two key players missing(and i don't mean hopalong Terry,but more like Mata,Hazard,Cole you get my drift)that the outcome will be totally different.
    Chelsea are a team we no longer fear as proven over the last six years and although they're on a good run of form they definately caught us on a bad day,especially team wise.
    Weekend ruined but moving on.
