CHELSEA v Southampton: FA Cup Semi-final Preview

 

Date: Sunday 22nd April, 2018

Venue: Wembley Stadium

Kick-off: 15:00 BST

 

In this afternoon’s game, Chelsea will be appearing at the new Wembley for the 18th time, taking on Southampton in the FA Cup semi-final, with the winners facing Manchester United in this year’s final.

Of course, we have beaten Southampton in the not too distant past but had to come back from 2 goals down to do it, so we shouldn’t be taking this too lightly.Read More

Burnley v CHELSEA: Preview

Date: Thursday 19th April, 2018

Venue: Turf Moor

Kick-off: 19:45 BST

 

 

 

Our first half against Southampton at the weekend was one of the most dispirited, abject displays we’ve seen in quite a number of years and when Conte came out to take his seat early for the second half, you’d have been forgiven for thinking he’d given up in the dressing room and decided to miss the team-talk because we didn’t look that much livelier at the start of the second half.Read More

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. The Saints, managed by former Blue Mark Hughes, are even deeper water than us at the moment, languishing in 19th following a run of just 1 win in 18 in the league.… Read More

Venue: Stamford Bridge

Kick-off: 16:30 BST

 

Where do we start with this game?

Last time out, we could and should have capitalised on our first half against Spurs but as seems to be a habit of ours this season, we allowed errors to creep in and a proverbial game of two halves ended in our capitulation and ultimate embarrassment at the hands of Pochettino’s media darlings.Read More

Date: Saturday 10th March 2018

Venue: Stamford Bridge

Kick-off: 17:30 GMT

 

 

After a shambolic display against Manchester City last week, where we offered less than nothing, it’s hard to know quite how to feel about today’s home game against Crystal Palace. On the one hand, they are awful and on the other, so are we.… Read More

Chelsea in need of a boost for the top four hopes at home to Palace

Chelsea host Crystal Palace on Saturday desperately needing to pick up three points to boost their hopes of a top four finish.

The Blues are five points behind fourth-placed Tottenham Hotspur heading into the weekend and their recent form in the Premier League has been poor.

Four defeats in five games has seen them slip out of the qualifying places for the Champions League and manager Antonio Conte will be eager to halt their slide.… Read More

Manchester City v CHELSEA: Preview

 

Date: Sunday 4th March 2018

Venue: Etihad Stadium

Kick-off: 16:00 GMT

 

 

Realistically we should have beat Manchester United last week but *took our foot off the gas/let complacency creep in (*delete as appropriate) when we were never in a position to do so. Today’s game sees us take on the blue side of the city, who are head and shoulders better than United and any other side in the Premier League this season come to that, so anything less than 110% from every one of our players today will undoubtedly end in us leaving the Etihad with our pants round our ankles.… Read More
