Crystal Palace v CHELSEA: Preview

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 Venue: Selhurst Park

Date: Saturday, 29 March

Kick-off: 15.00 GMT

Jose Mourinho must be surprising a few people this season. Aside from him getting the hump against Villa – which he was perfectly entitle to do given Foy’s ‘performance’ – he’s a more relaxed version of our old Special One. More than that though, he has us playing football that’s a pleasure to watch. … Read More

CHELSEA v Arsenal: Preview

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Venue: Stamford Bridge

Date: Saturday, 22 March

Kick-off: 15.00 GMT

 The press might want to pile on the pressure with talk of not just Mourinho’s unbeaten run in ten meetings with Arsene Wenger but also his record 75 game unbeaten run at Stamford Bridge but given this is Arsenal and there’s really no love lost here, all we really want is to get on with the job in hand without the pantomime.… Read More

Chelsea vs Arsenal: Preview, Team News and Prediction

With a plot fit for the most epic of sport fiction novels, Chelsea’s highly anticipated match against Arsenal this Saturday is riddled with added intrigue, with the two title contenders set to slug it out on a backdrop of high emotion and drama.

Arsene Wenger’s 1000th game for Arsenal will be played out at Stamford Bridge of all places, with the ‘specialist in failure’ given the chance to silence his nemesis Jose Mourinho, the man who has never lost a league game at home for Chelsea.… Read More

CHELSEA v Galatasaray: Preview


Venue: Stamford Bridge
Date: 18 March 2014
Kick-off: 19.45 GMT

With Chelsea’s lack of strike force this season, there’ll have been plenty of times we’ve longed for Didier Drogba back but none of us would have opted to see him back in someone else’s colours. That’s how it is though because tonight we see our former Ivorian striker running towards us on Galatasaray’s behalf in the Champions League.… Read More

Aston Villa v CHELSEA: Preview


Venue: Villa Park
Date: Saturday, 15 March
Kick-off: 17.30 GMT

Given our recent form against Villa and our run of 14 games unbeaten, on paper this fixture could look like a formality for us – particularly with Villa struggling for anything resembling consistent form at home.
The trouble with Chelsea though, is that all too often in games we don’t put in the full 90 minutes – and it’s frustrating, as Jose’s silent treatment at half-time against Fulham testified.… Read More

CHELSEA v Spurs: Preview

Venue:Stamford Bridge
Date: Saturday, 8 March
Kick-off: 17.30

Despite Jose Mourinho’s insistence we can’t really be classed as genuine league leaders because of City’s games in hand, you’d have to think that with us currently 4 points clear at the top of the table and Arsenal and City both in FA Cup games this weekend, we won’t get a better opportunity this season to put some real daylight between us and the other title contenders.… Read More

Fulham v CHELSEA: Preview

Venue: Craven Cottage
Date: Saturday, 1 March
Kick-off: 15.00 GMT

The kits are barely washed and dried from our trip to Istanbul midweek and we’re back on our travels already. Ok, so it’s only a stroll down the road to Craven Cottage this time but the players have hardly had time to rub the Deep Heat in and their weary legs are back on the pitch for 3pm this afternoon.… Read More
