Bugger. Beaten by the Boc.
Left backs I would have over Chilwell right now:Name three left backs that are better in the Premier League?
Yep, you read it correctly.Shaw FFS ??
Holy Jebus, bring back Alan Rogers
Did you hear Mourinho talking about an incident yesterday where Maguire had to cover across for Shaw being out of position? Jose basically said that Maguire would get a lot of practice at doing that through the season.Yep, you read it correctly.
I know it's the in thing to take the piss and call Shaw fat but when managed correctly he's a quality player.
And yes, Zinchenko is not an out and out left back but he's still been more consistent and achieved far more than Chilwell.
I wonder why Pep didn't bother replacing him despite being the best team In the land? Must because he's shit.
Agree on all this. Digne I would say is about the same as Chilwell - with the inconsistency to match too.Did you hear Mourinho talking about an incident yesterday where Maguire had to cover across for Shaw being out of position?

Robertson is number one left back.
Nobody else is clearly better than Chilwell. You could possibly argue Digne but I'd say the jury was out on that one. Anyone else suggested is absolute drivel.
I'm a fan of Fuchs and all he has done for us, but I think this is a sensible summary of where we are now.Fuchs is good at somethings but he has zero pace now and gets woefully caught out because of it. Fuchs a few years ago was better than Chilwell is now, yes, but Chilwell is first choice for a clear reason and by a mile now.
Alonso is and has been much more consistent than Chilwell. The same goes for Robertson, Digne and Zinchenko. That's my opinion based on what I see and I'd take any of those right now over Chilwell. I'm sure I'll probably change my mind over the course of this season but I have two balls neither of which are crystal do I can only base my opinion on evidence drawn from the last few seasons.Alonso isn’t even the best left back at Chelsea, a club said to want to buy Chilwell, Zinchenko is an attacking midfielder covering for an injured player and Fuchs can’t get a look in here for obvious reasons but people like yourself have some psychological need to abuse our young players.
How long until you turn on Hamza or Maddison I wonder
