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.

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.

Why Edin Dzeko to Chelsea doesn’t make much sense

Diego Costa’s exit was possibly the worst thing that happened to us last summer. We’ve talked a lot about our defence and midfield, but the Spaniard’s ability to single-handedly win us crucial points has what has been most sorely missed. We signed Alvaro Morata for 58 million, but he hasn’t really set the world alight despite a very good start.… 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

World-class superstar confirms he will remain at Chelsea next season

Thibaut Courtois has stated in an interview that he is set to stay at Stamford Bridge next season, even as we face the very real danger of missing out on Champions League football. The Belgian’s current contract runs out in 2019, and though he is yet to agree an extension, the 26 year-old has expressed his desire for the matter to be wrapped up before the World Cup in June.… 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

Chelsea aiming to crank up the pressure on Manchester pair

Chelsea visit West Ham United on Saturday aiming to stay in touch with the two Manchester clubs at the top of the Premier League.

Antonio Conte’s side trail table-topping City by 11 points and United by three, but with their title rivals set to clash at Old Trafford on Sunday they have an opportunity to crank up the pressure with a victory at the London Stadium.… Read More

Chelsea vs Everton: Blues must continue momentum after Tottenham victory

Chelsea return to Premier League action on Sunday as Everton are the visitors to Stamford Bridge, with Antonio Conte’s men looking for three points to go into the international break with spirits high.

The Blues remain the team to beat this term after last season’s momentous Premier League title success, but retaining English football’s top crown looks set to be a more-difficult task in 2017-18.… Read More

Who Will Conte Move For This Summer?

Many had written the Italians off before the tournament had started, but an impressive opening game has shown just what Antonio Conte is all about. While the days of an all-star Italy team are gone (for now), the tactical setup reaffirmed just how good Conte is.

As he looks forward to taking over the helm of the four-time Premier League champions, we look at three players that are top of Conte’s summer shopping list.… Read More
