Date: Sunday 6th May, 2018

Venue: Stamford Bridge

Kick-off: 16:30 BST

 

 

 

This afternoon’s game sees us at home to a Liverpool side with their heads full of the Champions League final. Mind you, they haven’t won it, so they still need to book their place for next year and a win at Stamford Bridge would see that happen.Read More

Date: Sunday 22nd April, 2018

Venue: Wembley Stadium

Kick-off: 15:00 BST

 

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.

Burnley v CHELSEA: Preview

Date: Thursday 19th April, 2018

Venue: Turf Moor

Kick-off: 19:45 BST

 

 

 

Our first half against Southampton at the weekend was one of the most dispirited, abject displays we’ve seen in quite a number of years and when Conte came out to take his seat early for the second half, you’d have been forgiven for thinking he’d given up in the dressing room and decided to miss the team-talk because we didn’t look that much livelier at the start of the second half.Read More

CHELSEA v West Ham: Preview

Date: Sunday 8th April, 2018

Venue: Stamford Bridge

Kick-off: 16:30 BST

 

Where do we start with this game?

Last time out, we could and should have capitalised on our first half against Spurs but as seems to be a habit of ours this season, we allowed errors to creep in and a proverbial game of two halves ended in our capitulation and ultimate embarrassment at the hands of Pochettino’s media darlings.Read More

CHELSEA v Tottenham: Preview

Date: Sunday 1st April 2018

Venue: Stamford Bridge

Kick-off: 16:00 BST

 

After a break from domestic football, our return to Premier League actions sees us up against Spurs – so no pressure today then.

Spurs are currently above us in the table and will stay there irrespective of the outcome today but we could close the gap between us and 4th place with a win.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

5 players we need to replace this summer

There is a lot of deadwood in the current squad, and if we really want to elevate ourselves to being one of the top clubs in Europe, we need a re-haul soon. The last summer transfer window was pretty disappointing, as instead of signing top-quality players, we ended up spending on above-average ones who are only good enough to be squad players at best.… Read More

CHELSEA v Crystal Palace: Preview

 

Date: Saturday 10th March 2018

Venue: Stamford Bridge

Kick-off: 17:30 GMT

 

 

After a shambolic display against Manchester City last week, where we offered less than nothing, it’s hard to know quite how to feel about today’s home game against Crystal Palace. On the one hand, they are awful and on the other, so are we.… Read More
