CHELSEA v Manchester United: FA Cup Preview

FA Cup 5th Round

Date: Monday 18th February 2019

Venue: Stamford Bridge

Kick-off: 19:30 GMT

Tonight’s FA Cup 5th round game sees a repeat of last season’s FA Cup final, albeit this time we have a much needed home advantage. We won that game, of course, but both sides are in a completely different place this time around.… Read More

Manchester City v CHELSEA: Preview

Date: Sunday 10th February 2019

Venue: Etihad Stadium

Kick-off: 16:00 GMT

 

 

 

If Pep Guardiola is calling today’s game “a real final”, it’s got less to do with our visit to the Etihad this afternoon and more to do with Liverpool breezing past Bournemouth yesterday. The world and his wife have already well and truly written off our chances of getting anything from this one and I’m not sure we have any real argument against that assumption.… Read More

CHELSEA v Huddersfield: Preview

Date: Saturday 2nd February 2019

Venue: Stamford Bridge

Kick-off: 15:00 GMT

 

 

 

After our midweek disaster class in Premier League football, today’s game sees us facing Huddersfield at Stamford Bridge.

Quite how the players will respond to that embarrassment, or the 50 minute lecture they got from Sarri after it, is anyone’s guess.… Read More

Bournemouth v CHELSEA: Preview

Date: Wednesday 30th January 2019

Venue: Vitality Stadium

Kick-off: 19:45 GMT

 

 

 

After some surprising results last night, tonight’s game for Chelsea, sees us make the trip to the Vitality Stadium to face Eddi Howe’s Bournemouth.

The Cherries come into tonight’s game with just three league wins in 13 games, but one of those wins was last time out against West Ham, ending a four-match winless league streak.… Read More

CHELSEA v Tottenham: EFL Cup Semi-final (2nd leg) Preview

Date: Thursday 24th January 2019

Venue: Stamford Bridge

Kick-off: 19:45 GMT

 

 

 

Tonight’s game sees us back against Spurs for the 2nd leg of the Carabao Cup.

Plenty are kidding themselves that with Kane, Alli and Son all out, our players will take the best opportunity they’ll get to overturn the 1-0 deficit from the first leg – I’m not buying that though.… Read More

CHELSEA v Spurs: From a Tottenham Perspective

The semi-final of a cup competition should always be something to savour, especially when it is your club that holds the advantage even if it is by a single goal. However, there is an air of trepidation for the second leg at Stamford Bridge as injuries has ravaged the Lilywhites leaving them looking a little exposed. … Read More

Arsenal v CHELSEA: Preview

Date: Saturday 19th January 2019

Venue: Emirates Stadium

Kick-off: 17:30 GMT

 

 

 

Today’s late kick-off sees us make the trip to the Emirates, in a game that’s hard to call given neither of us are in the best place to start with.

Arsenal come into this game off the back of a defeat to West Ham, and whilst we beat Newcastle last time out, we made hard work of it again.… Read More

CHELSEA v Newcastle: Preview

Date: Saturday 12th January 2019

Venue: Stamford Bridge

Kick-off: 17:30 GMT

 

 

 

Today’s late game sees us take on Newcastle United at Stamford Bridge.

For some of us, there’s no love lost between us and the Newcastle boss (our former interim manager), although it’s hardly been a love-in with Maurizio Sarri to date either and the current situation around transfers is doing little to help that situation.… Read More

Tottenham v CHELSEA: EFL Cup Semi-final (1st leg) Preview

Date: Tuesday 8th January 2019

Venue: Wembley Stadium

Kick-off: 20:00 GMT

 

After getting ourselves through to the 4th round of the FA Cup with a 2-0 win against Forest at the weekend, tonight we’re back in cup action. This time it’s the Carabao cup and a trip to Wembley to face Spurs in the first leg of the semi-final.… Read More

CHELSEA v Southampton: Preview

Date: Wednesday 2nd January 2019

Venue: Stamford Bridge

Kick-off: 19:45 GMT

 

 

 

Our first game of 2019 sees us at home to Southampton. We finished 2018 in 4th place after a slight upturn in results, although we had to resort to winning ugly to get there.

Southampton, meanwhile, have lost their last two games but still show some signs of improvement under Ralph Hasenhuttl, picking up six points from 15.… Read More
