Emerson does not deserve to be benched, for him.
80 odd degrees heat, and he picks the slowest three players in the league, to start :- Cahill, Alonso and Fabregas, as well as the player with the slowest brain, Bakayoko. Along with Giroud, this has to be the slowest Chelsea team he could pick. The only hope we have, is if the scousers are the worst for wear, after Rome.
Is there still hope? Not with that starting eleven.
