CHELSEA v West Ham: Preview

Date: Sunday 8th April, 2018

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

CHELSEA v Tottenham: Preview

Date: Sunday 1st April 2018

Venue: Stamford Bridge

Kick-off: 16:00 BST

 

After a break from domestic football, our return to Premier League actions sees us up against Spurs – so no pressure today then.

Spurs are currently above us in the table and will stay there irrespective of the outcome today but we could close the gap between us and 4th place with a win.Read More

Two-time Player of the Year labels Chelsea favourites against Spurs

Ray Wilkins is of the opinion that we hold the edge in our upcoming, must-win encounter against Spurs next Sunday. The former Chelsea midfielder, who won the Player of the Year awards in 1976 and 1977, said that Harry Kane’s absence will be a big factor in determining the outcome of the London derby at Stamford Bridge.… Read More

CHELSEA v Crystal Palace: Preview

 

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

Manchester United v CHELSEA: Preview

 

Date: Sunday 25th February 2018

Venue: Old Trafford

Kick-off: 14:05 GMT

 

 

After a decent showing at home to Barcelona midweek, today’s Premier League game takes us to Old Trafford.

We haven’t had a win away against today’s opponents since 2013 in the league and we lost this fixture under Antonio Conte last season, so we’ll need to be at the top of our game to get anything out of this today.… Read More

CHELSEA v Barcelona: Champions League Preview

 

Date: Tuesday 20th February 2018

Venue: Stamford Bridge

Kick-off: 19:45 GMT

 

Friday night’s game was a clear improvement in performance for us but getting that into context, it was against Hull City. Tonight, our visitors are Barcelona and whilst we can clutch at whatever historical straws between us we like, the reality is, records are there for the taking from us this season.… Read More

CHELSEA v Hull: FA Cup Preview

Date: Friday 16th February 2018

Venue: Stamford Bridge

Kick-off: 20:00 GMT

 

Tonight’s FA Cup fifth round tie sees us at home to Hull City and for me, it’s a really hard game to read. After a couple of really shoddy performances, we come into this off the back of a 3-0 win over West Brom – and yes, it was the Baggies and no, we didn’t blow a poor West Brom away but there were undoubted signs of improvement.… Read More
