Watford v CHELSEA: Preview

Venue: Vicarage Road Date: Wednesday, 3 February Kick-off: 19:45 GMT Tonight’s game sees us travel to Watford, where Hiddink’s second spell in charge started with a draw. Chelsea are unbeaten since then and we looked good in our 5-1 win at the weekend, albeit against MK Dons. Watford are unlikely to be as charitable as [...]

Arsenal v CHELSEA: Preview

Venue: Emirates Stadium Date: Sunday, 24 January Kick-off: 16:00 GMT Guus Hiddink inflicted Arsenal’s heaviest ever Premier League defeat at the Emirates when we won 4-1 there in May 2009, but whilst we travel back across the capital today, Hiddink will know these are very different times. Arsenal won’t get a better opportunity to win [...]

CHELSEA v Everton: Preview

Venue: Stamford Bridge Date: Saturday, 16 January Kick-off: 15:00 GMT This afternoon’s game sees us play host to Everton and like every other side that comes to Stamford Bridge these days, the Toffees will be coming for the win. Martinez might not have a good record against us here but his Everton side have only [...]

CHELSEA v Scunthorpe: FA Cup Preview

Venue: Stamford Bridge Date: Sunday, 10 January Kick-off: 14:00 GMT During his first stint in charge in 2009, Guus Hiddink led Chelsea to FA Cup glory in a 2-1 win over Everton. Having blown even a European place this season, he’s hoping for domestic silverware at least, so we can expect the current interim manager [...]

Crystal Palace v CHELSEA: Preview

Venue: Selhurst Park Date: Sunday, 3 January Kick-off: 13:30 GMT Our first game of the new year sees us take on Crystal Palace at Selhurst Park in the early kick-off. Last time out against Manchester United was absolute torture to watch and in all honesty United could, and probably should, have been out of sight [...]

Man United v CHELSEA: Preview

Venue: Old Trafford Date: Monday, 28 December Kick-off: 17:30 GMT In view of our record away at Old Trafford, this fixture wouldn’t usually bother Chelsea as much as most teams. Ahead of today, we’re unbeaten in our last eight against them in the league and cup. That’s not a statistic United will want to hear [...]

CHELSEA v Watford: Preview

Venue: Stamford Bridge Date: Saturday, 26 December Kick-off: 15:00 GMT Our last game, against Sunderland, was probably the worst we’ll have to sit through this season – and god knows we’ve had to sit through enough dross. Obviously, we will always want to win – the point was, we wanted the same level of commitment [...]

CHELSEA v Sunderland: Preview

Venue: Stamford Bridge Date: Saturday, 19 December Kick-off: 15:00 GMT So much to say yet so little motivation to say it as we go into what should have been a straight forward game for us at home to Sunderland. We’re Premier League champions, Sunderland are sitting in the relegation places and this fixture last season [...]

Leicester v CHELSEA: Preview

Venue: King Power Stadium Date: Monday, 14 December Kick-off: 20:00 GMT We’ve had to grind out results against Leicester over the years and it’s not as if they’ve never beaten us but to go into tonight’s game as the current Premier League champions, yet fully expected to lose, is a bit odd. It shouldn’t be [...]

CHELSEA v Bournemouth: Preview

Venue: Stamford Bridge Date: Saturday, 5 December Kick-off: 17:30 GMT Chelsea looked a lot better last weekend to earn a draw away to the apparently on form Tottenham. This week it’s back at home with Bournemouth the visitors as we try to get a bit of momentum going in our season. What we lacked last [...]
