There were clearly positive signs for Chelsea last night under Thomas Tuchel, so they could be a brilliant team to watch if things click in attack and they start banging a few in.
The problem is that last night they did draw 0-0 and didn’t look overly threatening going forward, so it’s probably not the time to be giving it the big one and posting things like this:
Pass. Move. Pass again. ?
Just 16 of our 8??2??0?? completed passes last night! ? pic.twitter.com/U8a4GGELz4

The reaction has been fairly predictable – Chelsea fans openly questioning the idea to post this and rival fans gleefully piling in:
Always going to go down like a lead balloon this ????? Very positive signs for sure, but passes mean nothing if u don’t score!

Celebrating passing with no goals?

This is cringe. Well, much of the coverage has been.

Absolutely pointless if you don’t score & boring to watch

Pass. Move. Pass again.
And again and again….. And nothing. ??

Yes that’s all well and good but it’s worthless if you have no end product. That midfield has no end product

This is beyond embarrassing to watch. 16 passes under zero pressure that lead to an aimless cross and a feeble shot. pic.twitter.com/eh3rMDdBsI
