Southampton vs Chelsea: Preview, line-ups and prediction

Southampton vs Chelsea

Southampton (19) vs Chelsea (5)
Saturday, 14 April, 12:30 BST
St. Mary’s Stadium, Southampton

We will be looking to avoid a fourth successive Premier League away defeat when we travel to Southampton for the early kick-off on Saturday. The Saints, managed by former Blue Mark Hughes, are even deeper water than us at the moment, languishing in 19th following a run of just 1 win in 18 in the league.… Read More

Antonio Conte press conference: Christensen and Courtois doubts against Spurs

Speaking ahead of the must-win encounter against Tottenham Hotspur on Sunday, manager Antonio Conte delivered some key injury new which could have a bearing on the outcome of the game.

Defender Andres Christensen, who was sent home by the Danish national team last week from fatigue, is still not 100% and will be assessed before this one.… Read More

Will Antonio Conte start playing Ross Barkley in his best position?

Ross Barkley is set to return to full training next week, as reported here by the Telegraphafter recovering from a hamstring injury that has kept him out since January. The former Everton man only joined us in Jan for a bargain sum of £15 million, and has made an appearance each in the Premier League, FA Cup and League Cup.… Read More

Arsenal v CHELSEA: Preview

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Venue: Emirates Stadium

Date: Monday, 23 December

Kick-off: 20.00 GMT

Well, Arsenal were well and truly found out in their last game with a 6-3 defeat to City but then our exit to Sunderland in the cup wasn’t exactly convincing either. So probably the less we dwell on recent form the better going into tonight’s away game at the Emirates.… Read More

Steaua 0-4 Chelsea: More Cruise Than Crisis

Last time out in Europe we had a bad night, so this was one of them clichéd ‘must win’ games.  As it turns out, we didn’t just win it, we did so emphatically with a few more positives for Jose Mourinho to tuck under his belt as the work he’s put in (and the stick he’s taken for it) showed real signs of paying off.… Read More

Chelsea Injuries: Cahill & Cole

So, we get a win against United but it costs us Ashley Cole.

Our left-back looked for a minute as if he’d given up the chase down the wing this afternoon although a second looked saw him pull-up with a hamstring injury that’ll see him out of action for the next couple of weeks.… Read More

Chelsea’s Busiest Recruit?

Ok, I appreciate Eva Carneiro has her attributes as a physio but is it necessary for the club to keep her quite so busy?

She’s already got Oriol Romeu on the books for six months following his knee surgery and John Terry with a bruised bone in his knee. The weekend saw Petr Cech added to them two and he’ll be getting Eva’s attention for two to three weeks after suffering Abductor trouble against Everton.… Read More

Benayoun Back At Chelsea

Ever get the feeling we’ve been sold a pup? Yossi Benayoun signed for us in July 2010 for a reported £5.5m and was out from September 2010 until April 2011 with a ruptured Achilles. He then spent a year on loan at Arsenal, before going out on loan again in August this year to West Ham – and now he’s back…….injured.… Read More

Chelsea Injury Update: Ashley Cole

So, the news on John Terry was better than expected with him out for weeks rather than months and whilst Frank Lampard is still out, it seems the news on Ashley Cole is more positive. … Read More

Chelsea Injury Update: John Terry – And Why It’s Not All Good News

 

Well, the replays and stills we saw might not have pointed to it Sunday but it seems John Terry’s injury doesn’t look to be anything too serious after all with a statement on the club’s website saying “Today’s MRI scans on John Terry’s right knee thankfully show no significant damage to the cruciate ligaments. Read More
