CHELSEA v Crystal Palace: Preview

Venue: Stamford Bridge Date: Saturday, 29 August Kick-off: 15:00 BST Today is Jose Mourinho’s 100th Premier League home game in charge of Chelsea. He’s won 76 and lost just one of the previous 99, bizarre that he’s questioned quite so stringently the minute we drop points – he’s lost the grand total of one game [...]

West Brom v CHELSEA: Preview

Venue: The Hawthorns Date: Sunday, 23 August Kick-off: 13:30 BST Today’s game will be Mourinho’s 300th in charge of Chelsea, so in spite of our poor start to the season you’d have to think he’ll fare better than Villas Boas and Di Matteo did after defeats in this fixture. Not that Mourinho will be advocating [...]

Man City v CHELSEA: Preview

Venue: Etihad Stadium Date: Sunday, 16 August 2015 Kick-off: 16:00 BST If everyone can stop sympathising with our medical staff for 90 minutes and take a break from castigating big, bad Jose Mourinho, there’s a small matter of a trip to the Etihad to focus on this afternoon. Not unusually for our boss, there’s no [...]

Arsenal v CHELSEA: Community Shield Preview

Venue: Wembley Stadium Date: 2 August, 2015 Kick- off: 15:00 BST At long last, after a summer break seemingly full of women’s football and slightly less sunshine, today sees the clichéd ‘curtain raiser’ to the 2015-16 season with the Charity Shield. Today’s game will be the 14th meeting between Jose Mourinho and Arsene Wenger none [...]

CHELSEA v Sunderland: Preview

Venue: Stamford Bridge Date: Sunday, 24 May Kick-off: 15:00 BST Here we go then, last game of Chelsea’s 4th Premier League winning season and the perfect day to be at home. We were lacklustre and understandably lacking motivation for our last game but it would be good to see out our title winning season on [...]

West Brom v CHELSEA: Preview

Venue: The Hawthorns Date: Monday, 18 May Kick-off: 20:00 BST Whilst the footballing world continues to mourn the loss of Steven Gerrard – well, Liverpool and their press buddies anyway – I expect we’ll slip tonight’s game in pretty much unnoticed. We’re only the Premier League Champions after all. For those who do still have [...]

CHELSEA v Liverpool: Preview

Venue: Stamford Bridge Date: Sunday, 10 May Kick-off: 16:00 BST This afternoon’s game sees us host a Liverpool side scrapping to get into the top four – well, at least they will do once they’ve given us a guard of honour. Oh, of course I should just mention in case anyone wasn’t aware – we’ve [...]

CHELSEA v Crystal Palace: Preview

Venue: Stamford Bridge Date: Sunday, 3 May Kick-off: 13:30 BST Where do you start with a preview like this? This lunchtime’s game sees us at home, to Palace but it’s not just any game against Palace because a win today could give us our fourth Premier League title. Jose Mourinho has been clear ahead of [...]

Leicester v CHELSEA: Preview

Venue: King Power Stadium Date: Wednesday, 29 April Kick-off: 19:45 BST Our game in hand sees us travel to the King Power Stadium to face a bit of a resurgent Leicester side tonight and with still two wins required for us to take the title, it’s likely to be a tense affair. Their current form [...]

Arsenal v CHELSEA: Preview

Venue: Emirates Stadium Date: Sunday, 26 April Kick-off: 16:00 BST So, today’s late game sees us pop over to the Emirates to face an Arsenal side some ten points behind us in the league, yet presumably hoping this game turns into a 6-pointer. They’re certainly the team in form, with nine wins in their last [...]
