Tight games you only get one or two chances. Unfortunately, we need 5 to score.
Foden, KDB and Grealish need to be better in the final third, Jesus is just Jesus..

Us.
Don’t think there was any bad performances in this first half.
If anything Jack has had his quietest game so far but still contributing. Kev is relatively quiet by his standards but still working his socks off.
Bernardo Phil and Gabriel as well as Rodri have been immense. Proper organisation and hard work in abundance.
This Chelsea team are well drilled and have quality in all positions. All of those positions are in their own half though. But they are calm enough to pick an out ball if we slacken on them.

We just need one ball to fall to us. A bit of luck. And keep our concentration levels.

We went full into pressing and it worked, they barely had a sniff.
We didn't go full into attack and that also showed. Very difficult to break them down without significant risks.

Decent performance, very difficult to get through that kind of defensive set up against a top side. One observation though if Grealish is going to just pass sideways and backwards every time he gets it he needs to at least press and sprint like everyone else when we lose it.

Good half City.

Not sure Foden is in the best position, there needs to be more movement up front.

I thought the chances were getting better and gaps were widening as the half went on.

The amout of work Chelsea are doing off the ball is exhausting and it will take it's toll later on.
