    With Mendy in goal, Chelsea fans are enjoying a big improvement in BP levels. Unlike Kepa who has sent many fans to the emergency room, Mendy is calm and competent.
    Chelsea looked good today! Kante’s performance in the DM position shows that he should be left there. That is his optimal position. Werner, Ziyech, Havertz and Mount were really impressive. Even the 36 yr old Silva has somehow adapted to the break neck speed of the English game, and he looked assured and composed in his center back role.
    Looks like Franko Lampardo is finally getting to grips with the job. If they continue to play like this, Chelsea fans are in for a great season!
