We're Chelsea bad, or did Bournemouth simply turn up and blitz them?

A bit of both, we pressed much more aggressively than normal against a top six side away from home.

Chelsea had most of the possession but didn't really create anything significant. We managed to cut through them twice early in the second half and scored on both occasions. Then three minutes later we scored from a corner and the game was done.

I think if you time it right a top six team can become vulnerable if you take it to them, and we have seen a few examples recently of underdog victories.

Trouble is that on the other side of the coin you could get absolutely stuffed.

Newcastle never seem to play on a Saturday these days, which is a pity because it is the only day they ever seem to win on.... no fuss and a bit under the radar on a Saturday. Sundays they are under the microscope a bit more, and this helps them to shrivel, so I expect Palace to pull clear a bit and consign Newcastle to joint second bottom place

every report after a Newcastle game says the same thing.... 'as fellow strugglers (insert name here) came from behind to earn a draw'

since Newcastle beat Palace 1-0 at SJP, Newcastle have won only 2 of their last 16 games, and Palace have lost only 3 of theirs

Soft penalty to give away, as without the shirt tug, Benteke wouldn't have got near the ball anyway.

Judging on the highlights, you should be happy with the point, DFM.

Not a lot going right for Chelsea right now, Bakayoko sent off after 30 minutes. Never a second yellow mind, Mike Dean is a prat.

Now a debatable penalty.

Chelsea players don't look interested.

Can't remember Hazard touching the ball in the first half.

Conte needs some team talk at half time, otherwise it's sack time.

didn't see the 3 goals from Watford coming really - when Hazard equalised I thought they'd got out of jail but Watford had other plans! Pressure on Conte now - although they are only 1 point off 3rd place

Two successive three goal margin beatings by lower order sides will be difficult to take by the powers that be at Chelsea.

Some questions for Conte to answer.

Who sold Matic and why did he send that text to Costa. And is Drinkwater really worth 35 million?

Luis Enrique looks close to becoming the new manager.

Chelsea v Barcelona in 2 weeks.

Bet he's asking for an absolute fortune.
