Points Out The Obvious
This is the thing, a couple of good games from these guys and we get gassed up so much thinking they're good enough but every so often reality smacks us in the face. There's so few guys in our squad that are actually both good enough and more importantly consistent enough to be playing for a top 4 side. Literally a handful of them currently. Also I feel like perhaps the system was doing well to hide the short-comings of a lot of our players. But yesterday it all fell apart really and all of a sudden we're reminded of how limited some of these players are.
It's only so long the system can cover the cracks, remember during Emery's win run we looked bad in pretty much every game and it came back to bite us. I don't see use finishing top 4 until we get a squad overhaul tbh, guys like Xhaka and Lacazette being mainstays in the team isn't gonna get us top 4. Bellerin is another one that can be so poor and a weak link at times.
Ask any Chelsea fan about Willian and they'll tell you he's massively inconsistent. He'll go from the best player on the pitch in one game to the worst in the next. Pepe seems to be a flop as well. Our signings aren't helping us get better in the long run so even new players are holding us back.
