I’ve been very impressed with what I’ve seen from Graham Potter’s Chelsea so far.
He’s put his faith in Kepa in goal, and it’s really paid off. He was absolutely fantastic at Villa Park, pulling off a string of great saves, including one that was simply world-class.
He came to Chelsea with a huge reputation, and if he can keep this up, his big price tag may be justified in the long run.
He had a huge job in dealing with Erling Haaland, but Joe Gomez certainly rose to the occasion. Himself and Van Dijk marshalled the Norwegian brilliantly, both physically in their individual battles and without the ball. He’s a future England star, for sure.
Virgil van Dijk
He was back to his best. Absolutely dominant at the back, I thought he put on a masterclass. His distribution was fantastic as well. A superb all-round performance.
A Rolls-Royce of a player. He might be 38 years old, but whatever he lacks in pace, he makes up with intelligence. The first yard is in his head; that’s why he’s still thriving at a top side in the Premier League. I can see him playing on for a while yet.
This Arsenal side are beginning to look like a serious outfit. They’ve got plenty of talent, but the one I’m most excited about is Bukayo Saka. He’s a livewire and has a great eye for goal. His finish at Elland Road was a difficult one, but as soon as I saw his run, it looked like a goal all day long. A top player.
Another solid performance. He always gives you everything and is as strong as an ox. Everton will probably be unhappy about how much time he had at the goal, but it was still a lovely finish. He’s an honest player, one you can trust as a manager.
He took his penalty well and lead by example in what was a huge win for Wolves. The home side looked good going forward, and he was at the heart of most of these moves. If Wolves can get scoring, I think they’ll be okay.
He’s really starting to fire! I mentioned last week he’s getting back to the level we all expect, and yesterday he got his double on a decent day for Chelsea. He was lively and always looked a threat. Good news for England and Chelsea fans alike.
That was a real heavyweight contest between Liverpool and City yesterday. I said before the game that if the Reds were to get anything, their big players had to turn up. Mo Salah definitely did. He got the winner and put in a top performance. Liverpool have work to do in the league, so let’s see if they can go on a run after a fantastic result against the champions.
This guy is as clinical as they get. I’d be shocked if a few of the top clubs aren’t sniffing around him come January. He’s got the full package. Physicality, pace, an eye for goal; the list goes on. What a future he has in front of him.
He’s in great form, and another goal and assist will do him no harm at all. His goal was terrific. His link-up play and one-touch finish was really nice and just shows how much confidence he’s playing with just now. Let’s hope he keeps it going, because when he plays like this, he’s right up there with the very best in the division.
