I f they got him it would be too much money in the wrong part of the team for me, now they have Werner, they need to be spending in defence not attack.
I agree but it doesnt mean they wont do that as well

Not if they spend £100 mill on Havertz they won't, , unless they have some big sales.
Knowing Chelsea they will get big money for sales of players. Already talking about £20M from Inter for Emerson. Probably another £40M-£50M for Jorginho. Both purchases by former managers which helps.

Yes, but as we have seen this season, having the best attack doesn't mean you don't need good defenders and keeper.
Yet we give away the least number of chances on a consistent basis. The problem is the quality of chances we do give away are of a much higher quality when we lose possession in central areas, our defenders are left isolated 1v1 or outnumbered.

Teams have worked that out and exploit it.

If our attack was more varied and we had more natural width, we wouldn't lose possession in central areas as frequently and teams wouldn't be able to exploit it because they couldn't just defend central areas. Liverpool are masters at it and United have done it well the last few games, Wolves with the wingbacks can pack central areas too. Even beating Liverpool 4-0, they still had huge chances to score, they should have scored 2-3 at least. There's a very distinct pattern.

Great, still need high quality defenders and keeper though , so will Chelsea, can't see them spending so much where they are already strong and leaving the defence as it is, if they do it will be a mistake.
