Same applies to Mikel, was abysmal during the game, so where the others

Chelsea still lacks a midfield and playmakers in my eyes. Lampard is washed up. Mata is overrated. Ramires and Mikel are one dimensional. Oscar is not ready. Maybe Marin and Moses will help but Chelsea still need two in the center who can move the ball and pass, hazard cannot do it all.. I'm surprised they passed on Gaston Ramirez or didn't try to get Sahin on loan. Maybe they should go after Moutinho now that he could be had.

I agree with you on everything except for what you said about Mata and Lampard.
Lampard may older, but he still brings a solid performance every game.
Mata (and now Hazard too) is the engine of Chelsea. He may have not been exceptional for us the last few games, but he was still a great help for us, providing many a ball to Torres. He's just in a little bit of a slump at the moment.
