Marc Guehi emergence shows defensive depth at Stamford Bridge

Many Chelsea fans wouldn’t have known the name Addji Keaninkin Marc-Israel Guehi, at the start of season. If you follow the youth and academy set-up you will know he has bags of potential.

Last night was a disappointment for Blues fans. A 2-1 Carabao Cup defeat to Manchester United ended a 7-match unbeaten streak that stretched back to the last round of the Carabao Cup, a 7-1 victory over League Two club Grimsby Town.… Read More

Date: Sunday 24th February 2019

Venue: Wembley Stadium

Kick-off: 16:30 GMT

 

This afternoon’s game sees us at Wembley Stadium to face Manchester City in the EFL Cup Final.

It’s only a couple of weeks since that 6-0 mauling from City, it still stings, and the 2-0 defeat to Manchester United last week has only added to the certainty that its just a matter of time before Maurizio Sarri heads out of the Stamford Bridge exit, never to darken our door again.… Read More

Venue: Stamford Bridge

Kick-off: 19:30 GMT

Tonight’s FA Cup 5th round game sees a repeat of last season’s FA Cup final, albeit this time we have a much needed home advantage. We won that game, of course, but both sides are in a completely different place this time around.… Read More

CHELSEA v Tottenham: EFL Cup Semi-final (2nd leg) Preview

Date: Thursday 24th January 2019

Venue: Stamford Bridge

Kick-off: 19:45 GMT

 

 

 

Tonight’s game sees us back against Spurs for the 2nd leg of the Carabao Cup.

Plenty are kidding themselves that with Kane, Alli and Son all out, our players will take the best opportunity they’ll get to overturn the 1-0 deficit from the first leg – I’m not buying that though.… Read More

CHELSEA v Spurs: From a Tottenham Perspective

The semi-final of a cup competition should always be something to savour, especially when it is your club that holds the advantage even if it is by a single goal. However, there is an air of trepidation for the second leg at Stamford Bridge as injuries has ravaged the Lilywhites leaving them looking a little exposed. … Read More

In this afternoon’s game, Chelsea will be appearing at the new Wembley for the 18th time, taking on Southampton in the FA Cup semi-final, with the winners facing Manchester United in this year’s final.

Of course, we have beaten Southampton in the not too distant past but had to come back from 2 goals down to do it, so we shouldn’t be taking this too lightly.Read More

CHELSEA v Hull: FA Cup Preview

Date: Friday 16th February 2018

Venue: Stamford Bridge

Kick-off: 20:00 GMT

 

Tonight’s FA Cup fifth round tie sees us at home to Hull City and for me, it’s a really hard game to read. After a couple of really shoddy performances, we come into this off the back of a 3-0 win over West Brom – and yes, it was the Baggies and no, we didn’t blow a poor West Brom away but there were undoubted signs of improvement.… Read More

CHELSEA v Newcastle: FA Cup Preview

 

Date: Sunday 28th January 2018

Venue: Stamford Bridge

Kick-off: 13.30

 

After going out of the League Cup midweek to Arsenal, today’s early kick-off sees us play host to Newcastle in the fourth round of the FA Cup but whilst most predictions I’ve seen seem to have us as firm favourites to go through, I’m less convinced.… Read More
