CHELSEA v Burnley: Preview

Date: Monday 22nd April 2019

Venue: Stamford Bridge

Kick-off: 20:00 BST

 

 

 

There’s been plenty of seasons gone by where, going into the final few games level on points with fourth place, I’d have thought we were in with a good shout of making the Champions League places, but in seasons past we were a different prospect.… Read More

Liverpool v CHELSEA: Preview

Date: Sunday 14th April 2019

Venue: Anfield

Kick-off: 16:30 BST

 

 

 

For those who haven’t read Gerrard’s autobiography (most, if not all of us), this fixture sent him into a spin, not to mention therapy, in 2014 and this is Liverpool’s first real go at the title since then.… Read More

CHELSEA v West Ham: Preview

Date: Monday 8th April 2019

Venue: Stamford Bridge

Kick-off: 20:00 BST

 

 

 

Exactly a year to the day we last played West Ham at home in the Premier League, tonight we do it again.

Surprisingly, we’re six points better off at this stage of the season than we were under Antonio Conte this time last year, but it certainly doesn’t feel as if there’s been any improvement.… Read More

CHELSEA v Brighton: Preview

Date: Wednesday 3rd April 2019

Venue: Stamford Bridge

Kick-off: 19:45 BST

 

 

 

Let’s face it, for the majority of the game against Cardiff on Sunday, we were as poor as we’ve been in a long time.

We got lucky, but Sarri got luckier. Quite why he felt the need to rest our two best players at this stage of a Premier League season when we’re chasing the pack for top four and faced a side fighting relegation, is anyone’s guess, but it was misjudged and but for a dodgy decision or two, and the bench coming to the rescue, we’d have missed out on that Warnock meltdown.… Read More

Cardiff v CHELSEA: Preview

Date: Sunday 31st March 2019

Venue: Cardiff City Stadium

Kick-off: 14:05 BST

 

 

 

Whilst some of us enjoyed watching England, and in particular watching our own players shine during the international break, clearly a start for the talented Hudson-Odoi doesn’t excite everyone at Chelsea, so he’s unlikely to need his boots on as early today.… Read More

Everton v CHELSEA: Preview

Date: Sunday 17th March 2019

Venue: Goodison Park

Kick-off: 16:30 GMT

 

 

 

After a decent result in Europe midweek against slightly less decent opposition, this afternoon it’s a trip to Liverpool for Chelsea to face Everton in the Premier League.

The Toffees have lost four of their last six at home and come into this game off the back of a defeat away to Newcastle last weekend.… Read More

CHELSEA v Wolves: Preview

Date: Sunday 10th March 2019

Venue: Stamford Bridge

Kick-off: 14:05 GMT

 

 

 

After a decent 3-0 win against Dynamo Kiev midweek, we could be forgiven for thinking everything in the Stamford Bridge garden was rosie again. It was certainly a comfortable enough win in Europe off the back of wins over Spurs and Fulham in the league as well, but I still think we should hold off a bit with the party poppers.… Read More

Fulham v CHELSEA: Preview

Date: Sunday 3rd March 2019

Venue: Craven Cottage

Kick-off: 14:05 GMT

 

 

 

After a win last time out against Spurs, today’s game sees us make the short trip to our manager-less neighbours. With Claudio Ranieri sacked by Fulham after their defeat to Southampton midweek, Scott Parker takes up the caretaker position for our visit this afternoon.… Read More

CHELSEA v Tottenham: Preview

Date: Wednesday 27th February 2019

Venue: Stamford Bridge

Kick-off: 20:00 GMT

 

 

We’ve hardly had time to get over the madness of the Carabao Cup Final against City and it’s back to the Premier League tonight and a visit from Tottenham.

The weekend’s game showcased the best (and possibly the worst) of us so far under Maurizio Sarri, with some much needed changes in both the system and personnel, giving Manchester City a much tighter game than any of us could have expected after the 6-0 thumping a fortnight earlier.… Read More

CHELSEA v Manchester City: EFL Cup Final Preview

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
