Roca had one horrendous miscontrol that led to a Chelsea chance. Apart from that he went fairly unnoticed - I don't mean that in a bad way just that he goes about his busy steadily and is the sort of player that can hold things together without seemingly doing much. I think there is more to come from him though and think he will be a very good buy for us.

Koch & Llorente seem to have developed a good understanding & have good organisational skills.

One again, credit to Marsch for sorting out our defence which was a complete mess last season.
One of my biggest observations was how well we held the defensive line. I think the Koch/Llorente relationship you mentioned has improved with more time playing together. Did they ever play together last season? Everyone (myself included) was convinced we needed a left footer at the back. I noticed the past couple of games that Llorente has a terrific left foot. I'd also been saying we need Cooper. I think he's our 4th best center back but the most important for keeping us organized. Looks like Koch and Lllorente are figuring things out and Coops might have a hard time getting his place back.
We've been through it all together. And we've had our ups and downs

It's a hard top 6 to pick this week. Everyone played well

DJ was similar, i was surprised at Pauls first comment about DJ and so paid particular attention to him on a re run, his workrate like ALL the others was spot on, he's actually sometimes too fast for his own good if you will, but his speed and harrying is good.

Paul actually came back on here and corrected himself after watching the game again and cutting DJ some slack.

It was a top class all round team effort, we looked like a team of players that know their roles and like after Berts game v Stoke i can't wait for BHA now

This game is our best to date and can be considered our Stoke moment if it continues getting backed up with good displays and wins for me.

Yes, that pretty much sums up my thoughts.
