    I did laugh at Rice's reaction. When he turns and sees that Noble is busy guarding 20 yards of open space instead of staying closer to Hazard he already knows it's super bad even though Hazard is still 40 yards from goal with like 6 defenders to beat.

    based on just pure , raw talent , I dunno how many guys I'd put above Hazard. Messi and Neymar come to mind , but I'm struggling beyond that.

    He's sensationally gifted.

    As far as natural skill goes, Mbappe, those other two and that's it. Chelsea's inability to play attacking football while having Hazard is one of football's greatest failures.

    Eh...I think Hazard has to take partial blame for it. He's immensely talented but either he never had a coach that taught him to play more directly or it's just a mentality thing, but a lot of the time he wastes his talent just going in circles, holding onto the ball too long or just slowing down the play too much. When he takes space and goes directly at the other team they are always shaking in their boots.

    I think that run that just happened is a perfect example or cases this can happen. He was one on one with the defender and wanted to cut back inside and dribble around for a while instead of using his pace and going straight at the defender.

    Felipe Anderson is a really good player.

    Also Emerson just saved a goal I think.

    Really good of Barkley to see Hazard there, and great finish.

    And AGAIN, you're not expecting Arsenal to sell anyone. They'll obviously buy AND sell.
    Not saying Arsenal WILL get good and cheap option.
    Just that's very doable.

    Plenty of players.
    They'll get some salaries off their books first (Ramsey), then they could sell guys like Mustafi, Ozil, Xhaka, Suarez, Welbeck, basically all their dead weight. That'll give them 70 easily (Ozil will get 40 at least+salary).
