Envisioned us struggling with that line up. I've no idea why RDM loves starting Bertrand when there are far better options on the bench. Don't get me wrong, Bertrand's good but he doesn't offer that much in attack. Anyone on here watched our game? How was our overall performance?
Hazard missed two golden chances on goal. Wasn't in the game much at all. Part of the blame for that has to go to Lampard and Mikel, who were awful. They can't maintain possession at all. Torres got no service at all and for some reason we were playing long balls to him which is not his style. He wasn't happy when he was subbed for Sturridge.
Ramires was poor. He looked angry all day and gave the ball away too much. The back four was solid enough; Luiz was quite good and sensible. Terry looked like he tweaked a knee.
Bertrand was poor and was subbed for Moses in the second half. Moses was quite promising considering the circumstances. He should have had an assist for Hazard's second golden opportunity.
Boring match overall and the central midfield is a worry.

That was mikel? Well yeah, that was pretty bad, not as bad as terry's but whatever. I honestly thought Mikel was alright. For starters he actually did something, a few interceptions, even a shot on goal or two. And the linkup between him Bran and Moses was good.
