Leicester v CHELSEA: Preview

Date: Sunday 12th May 2019

Venue: King Power Stadium

Kick-off: 15:00 BST

 

 

 

After wishing this season over on an almost weekly basis for months, we’ve finally arrived at the last day.

I’m still worn out from watching the game against Eintracht Frankfurt on Thursday night, so I have no expectations from our players today whatsoever.… Read More

CHELSEA v Watford: Preview

Date: Sunday 5th May 2019

Venue: Stamford Bridge

Kick-off: 14:00 BST

 

 

 

I feel like a right old grouch. It’s our last home game of the season, Spurs lost yesterday, giving us the opportunity to pinch 3rd spot off them and yet I don’t feel inspired at all.… Read More

Manchester United v CHELSEA: Preview

Date: Sunday 28th April 2019

Venue: Old Trafford

Kick-off: 16:30 BST

 

 

 

This afternoon’s game is being labelled ‘the race for fourth place’ although this season has been more of a sponsored walk than a race for both of today’s sides. None of your Mo Farah-type sprints for these two sides, instead, we look more like we’ve steered off course from today’s London marathon, last over the finish line in a clown costume and big slippers – and that’ll just be our second half.… Read More

CHELSEA v Burnley: Preview

Date: Monday 22nd April 2019

Venue: Stamford Bridge

Kick-off: 20:00 BST

 

 

 

There’s been plenty of seasons gone by where, going into the final few games level on points with fourth place, I’d have thought we were in with a good shout of making the Champions League places, but in seasons past we were a different prospect.… Read More

Liverpool v CHELSEA: Preview

Date: Sunday 14th April 2019

Venue: Anfield

Kick-off: 16:30 BST

 

 

 

For those who haven’t read Gerrard’s autobiography (most, if not all of us), this fixture sent him into a spin, not to mention therapy, in 2014 and this is Liverpool’s first real go at the title since then.… Read More

CHELSEA v West Ham: Preview

Date: Monday 8th April 2019

Venue: Stamford Bridge

Kick-off: 20:00 BST

 

 

 

Exactly a year to the day we last played West Ham at home in the Premier League, tonight we do it again.

Surprisingly, we’re six points better off at this stage of the season than we were under Antonio Conte this time last year, but it certainly doesn’t feel as if there’s been any improvement.… Read More

CHELSEA v Brighton: Preview

Date: Wednesday 3rd April 2019

Venue: Stamford Bridge

Kick-off: 19:45 BST

 

 

 

Let’s face it, for the majority of the game against Cardiff on Sunday, we were as poor as we’ve been in a long time.

We got lucky, but Sarri got luckier. Quite why he felt the need to rest our two best players at this stage of a Premier League season when we’re chasing the pack for top four and faced a side fighting relegation, is anyone’s guess, but it was misjudged and but for a dodgy decision or two, and the bench coming to the rescue, we’d have missed out on that Warnock meltdown.… Read More

Cardiff v CHELSEA: Preview

Date: Sunday 31st March 2019

Venue: Cardiff City Stadium

Kick-off: 14:05 BST

 

 

 

Whilst some of us enjoyed watching England, and in particular watching our own players shine during the international break, clearly a start for the talented Hudson-Odoi doesn’t excite everyone at Chelsea, so he’s unlikely to need his boots on as early today.… Read More

Everton v CHELSEA: Preview

Date: Sunday 17th March 2019

Venue: Goodison Park

Kick-off: 16:30 GMT

 

 

 

After a decent result in Europe midweek against slightly less decent opposition, this afternoon it’s a trip to Liverpool for Chelsea to face Everton in the Premier League.

The Toffees have lost four of their last six at home and come into this game off the back of a defeat away to Newcastle last weekend.… Read More

CHELSEA v Wolves: Preview

Date: Sunday 10th March 2019

Venue: Stamford Bridge

Kick-off: 14:05 GMT

 

 

 

After a decent 3-0 win against Dynamo Kiev midweek, we could be forgiven for thinking everything in the Stamford Bridge garden was rosie again. It was certainly a comfortable enough win in Europe off the back of wins over Spurs and Fulham in the league as well, but I still think we should hold off a bit with the party poppers.… Read More
