Still a lot of work to be done but what a change in the performance and attitude of virtually the same players as last year, Richarlision excepted.
Instead of just wanting to get behind the ball we were chasing, fighting to get it back. Instead of looking at putting a 5th defender on in the second half to protect our lead which then invites the opposition onto us we made changes in attack which kept Southampton on the back foot, disrupting their football in their half rather than trying to hold them in our half.
The most pleasing, exciting thing for us to look forward to is we have the promise that we can improve further. In defence we still have to introduce Mina, Zouma and Digne - there is room for us to strengthen.

In midfield we can look forward to Gomes, Bernardo and Dowell pushing for places in the team.

Up front we have Calvert Lewin, Bernardo, Lookman even Niasse to look at. After just 2 games Tosun, Richarlison, Walcott and Sigurdson are showing good understanding and interplay which bodes well for the future.

Leading all this is a manager who has them playing as a team and confidence is beginning to return to everyone

Early days but a good, solid, confident start with the promise of more to come

Having watched the match back, (recording and MOTD) it is quite easy to see how watching our first home game of the season some (myself included) got somewhat carried away with some of the pundits and media editors plaudits. The fact is though that Mr Silva is quite right on saying we do need to work hard on our defence and particularly against set pieces. Their header in my humble opinion was far to easy the lad was in loads of space (behind Keane think) and yet up to that point I thought the two young lads in the middle had done a good job. Let's see how we are against Bournemouth (2 games 2 wins) after Silva has had another week with the lads.

We definitely need to work on defence, although we put a good performance in, a stronger side Will cause us problems. People say mina coming in to partner keane, petsonally i think holgate looks better than keane. Time will tell. Maybe mina- Zouma. Either way its nice to have options .

Must admit I haven't seen to much of him but Mina is supposed to be more aggressive in the CB position than anyone else we have at the moment (apart from Zouma perhaps) , with any of those two in the CB position I don't believe Strikers/ Forwards will be able to muscle the space they want.

Holgate gets better every game he plays IMO. I’d go with him and Mina - good mix of pace and power there for me.

{Ed025's Note - but zouma has not come from chelsea.s bench to sit on ours windsor, i think he will have had assurances about playing time myself mate..

If he displaces Keane, mina or Holgate then we will definitely have some player on our hands. I think holgate has a place to lose and I would think mina is a sure starter when fit. It's between Keane and Zouma to displace one or the other.
