Not what any of us was looking for today.
The pace is depressingly slow, and the side just doesn't have the zest you'd want if you were Roberto Di Matteo. To say Chelsea is missing the creativity of Juan Mata and the industry of Ramires is, well, quite the understatement. We look like a team that played 120 minutes in midweek - and, you now, we did.
Also, we could use a poacher in front of goal. Fernando Torres has now gone 348 minutes without scoring in all competitions. Not good.
Here's to hoping for improvement after the halftime interval. For now, talk among yourselves.
