I don't want to talk about the mistake we made yesterday anymore because the players played with their hearts and I was extremely proud. I also want to praise one player that hasn't been talked much from yesterday's game, Kante. What a performance he put in yesterday. Energetic, running up and down up and down for the whole game. What a beast.
Chelsea's Thibaut Courtois says agent would 'listen' to Real Madrid,
Sky Sports .
Real have much better GK's right now...I dont know why they would got for Thibo who is good but not someone Real would break banks for
I honestly dont think AC is only to blame for that goal. Fabregas is not even trying to reach the ball or picking up pace, he just takes two steps towards it and Azpi should also get that ball?? Sliding tackle totally unnecessary.. Still good game we shouldve won 2-1 though.
Nah, it was a terrible pass from AC, he should have known better than to play that kind of pass against a pressing Barcelona squad. It showed his inexperience a bit in games like these. It's all good, he will learn from it and next time just kick the ball out.
+1
It wasn't just AC, of course the pass is bad but Azpi should of done better rather than slide in
AC, cesc and Azpi are all to blame for the goal but it's done, it didn't go our way last night coz if it did Willian would have had a hat trick. Hope in the second leg conte will come up with master plan to deal with barca. Morata have to start so that Hazard will cause havoc on the wing.
I love AC, but that was completely his fault. It was an awful pass.
+1
Anyways Conte praised him for having perfect game until that point...its a mistake and he will certainly learn from it.
Great match! The post saved us in the first half. Chelsea could have easily led 2-0 at halftime. I know you guys have struggled with top 4 in the PL, but your squad is one of the best in the world hands down. I know I said to be wary of a squad with Hazard, Cesc, and Kante, but Willian should be included in that list (despite being inconsistent). Nothing, but respect from me!
+2
Yes it was a great game. Even though there werent many chances, the intensity was high and tempo was fast.
I was suprised to see a more pragmatic Barca really - how long have they been playing 4-4-2?

Willy has been great as of late, but yes he struggles with consistency, and he has almost as many awfull games, as he has great ones.
A majority of the season has been played with a 4-4-2 and that's the biggest reason why Barca is still undefeated in La Liga. Valverde's tactics seem much more balanced and conservative compared to Pep's or Luis Enrique's. And it may seem like a 4-4-2, but the movement of the players is still very fluid.


I hope Willy has more luck against United and City before facing us so he gets it out of his system lol
Willy the beast will be called on if it were called on a Penalty shootout
@Kokm - They don't have much of an option, do they? They are yet to see the full potential of Dembouz and without him in the playing XI, I think the best possible formation for them is the 4-4-2. Note that, 4-4-2 is just on paper as Messi more than often drops back which essentially leaves Luisito alone at the top with the back 2/3.
Good game. Conte knew exactly what he was doing. Almost tied down Messi and Suarez. It is highly unlikely that 2nd leg will end in 0-0. So I don't think Barcelona has away goal advantage. Hazard is not that effective as CF. Morata should play. In form Willian and Hazard at both wings should be interesting.
Pedro did a lot of good defensive work so I can’t complain that much, but Hazard as striker was pretty bad, 90% of passes that went to him were in the air and he couldn’t do anything.

Definitely needs to be on the wing in 2nd leg.
Yes Hazard on the wings is more deadly , conte should map out plan to play Morata ,willian and hazard front 3 but Pedro did press a lot too.
Hazard has barely played in the wings this season, he was sacrificed for the team to click, without him Pedro or Willian wouldn't have played and can't leave a good player like Hazard on the bench, he had more confidence to take players on when Morata came on, at Nou Camp 352 in defence and 343 in attack
damn what a donkey mistake after all that hard work.
+5
Barca was pressing hard and even before the goal, the players where tiring out and started making mistakes. Its a shame Conte had his tactics spot on but in all honesty it doesn't matter. Even if it ended 1-0 to Chelsea, the real battle will be at the Nou Camp. PSG had a 4-1 lead and still lost, Chelsea will need to play the game of their lives to get out of the Nou Camp with a win.
there is only so long you can defend.. i dont blame anyone for that goal
I'd expect azpi tho handle it better tbh. Sliding in for iniesta to go past him was a bit uncharacteristic.
Agreed with Shay...Azip dive was unnecessary
We all love AC but there is not escaping the fact that he is solely responsible for the goal. He is a defender first and foremost and it is part of a defnder's basic training notto make square passes into the centre of the pitch especially against a high pressing team.

But then the mistake also fit in with the poor luck we had on the night when we could have been 3 nil up and had more chances to score than Messi and co. It is also a significant learning curve for the 21 year old and out of such mistakes are great defenders born and hopefully that mistakes fires him up for the rest of the season.
unlucky Willian...tactics and line up spot on by Conte though. Good luck in the 2nd leg.
+1
unlucky not to score more.
i was happy with the performance, and Willian was a boss
The goal probably stings but looking forward im not sure how much it matters. Barca will not be silenced at home so chelsea were gonna have to score goals away regardless of this outcome. One of the best performances by any team this season. Hazard, willian played their socks off. Mistake by christenson but multiple errors happened after he hit the ball.
+2
that goal really dampened the mood haha, it was brilliant defending leading up to the error we switched off and got punished, but this has been our best performance for a long time, Hazard was wasted as CF but Conte's tactics were spot on so can't complain too much, i really didn't expect Willian to play like this, Conte got time to come up with a plan with both Manchester clubs on the way
Agreed we will have to play our best game to beat Barca at Camp Nou or even draw 2-2.

Last time we were down 2-0 with 10 men and came back to draw 2-2...you never know with Chelsea espeically against Barca
One of the best performances by any team this season by any team? Oh you've got to be kidding me. Because they didn't let Barca score more than 1 goal? Because they tied Barca? You know we are not that good that tying us equals to best performance of the season.

It was a good defensive performance. Chelsea had 3 chances and scored 1. Barca had 1 chance and scored. And why are people saying Barça got lucky? We pressured the opponent, won the ball and scored. Everybody keeps saying it was a defensive mistake. Isn't every goal a defensive mistake? We let Willian wide open, that's a defensive mistake too.
+5
Chelsea were giving them real issues at the back with some very dynamic quick attacks, and Barca played very well indeed but their penetration was limited by a very well marshaled defensive unit. If not for a misplaced pass followed by some poor defensive decisions Chelsea would not have conceded. Perhaps best performance undercuts the game overall. It was one of the best matches all season, great skill, passion and tactics on display.

If you think the William goal was just as much of a mistake then I can't help you there:
+4
lolol relax with that best performance of any team talk. we were efficient and did our job lololol
+4
The Willian goal was a mistake. Iniesta I believe was supposed to cover him but he got dragged out by Hazard and whoever was taking the corner. He went to help them out leaving Willian wide open.

And I'm not sure I agree with you on causing Barca real issues. Both of Willians shots came unexpected and from long distance. Besides the 3 shots, Barca weren't troubled at all. I actually think we were very good when it was 3v3 or 2v3
+2
It was surely a top performance by Chelsea especially considering our form in 2018. This is still alive. It is very unlikely that 2nd tie will end 0-0. So we can take some risk and be more attacking at Camp you.
@SanchezAlexis Barcelona had lots of possession but nothing threatening. There was off target Suarez shot saved by Tbo. We did well to keep Messi and Suarez quiet. And seriously you think that was Iniesta mistake? I don't know what to say. Also that shot was perfect. No GK would have saved that especially with number of people in front of him.
+2
Sancjez Alexis:
I was in a Bar full of mainly Barca fans and everyone agreed that Barca got bossed around ever since the first 20 minutes and were lucky to get a result.

There were even a few Bayern fans who brought up the fact that Barca had 72% possesion - But as some of the Barca fans reminded us all, they once had like 85% possesion against Mous Inter Milan and still lost the game.

Possesion means dick - plus we hit the post twice and had like 10+ shots & Barca had three. Just sayin😉
+2
This was one of our best performance thou since beating Man U in November ever since that we have been rocky in defence and in attack, I was expecting to get trashed ever since we lost 3-0 and 4-1 to a mid table clubs
10+ shots lol. 2 on target, 2 on target from us. 1 goal from you 1 goal from us. Congrats on the tie, hope second leg will be alot more exciting. And yes we got bossed around because you guys defended all game lol happy?
Chelsea clearly had the better chances and were unlucky not to be 2 up before half time. This Sanchez guy is such a troll and can't admit that Barca were lucky to get a draw.
+1
SanchezAlexis - Yeah you played attacking football because you had 75% possession passing ball sideways happy?lol

I have already said manytimes...Go watch Liverpool , Bayern, PSG and Real plays to know difference btw attacking football and toothless possession football hoping for Messi , Iniesta and Suarez do miracle LOL!.

2 shots + 2 shots saved by post by Chelsea

2 shots = One gifted ball by Chelsea defensive mistake + one cross shot Suarez attempted LOL

i honestly hope 2nd leg will be more exciting and Barca try to play some attacking football instead of settling for draw like you guys did against Juve last season. Or Maybe dive around like you did against PSG and win some penalties ?

Troll deserves to trolled ..cheers
good teams punish mistakes. it was a great performance from chelsea but the luck wasn't there, and you need luck in these tournaments. i think chelsea deserved to win on the night, but that's football. next leg will hopefully be as close and as entertaining as this game.
like the commentator said, Hazard was sacrificed in order for the team to work, at Nou Camp Hazard plays with a proper CF, a different player
