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

CHELSEA v West Brom: Preview

 

Date: Monday 12th February 2018

Venue: Stamford Bridge

Kick-off: 20:00 GMT

 

 

With everyone above us apart from United winning at the weekend and pushing us out of the top four, tonight’s game at home to West Brom is one of those clichéd ‘must wins’. Of course, that wouldn’t be the case if we hadn’t spent the last couple of weeks playing like a Sunday League side (no offence to Sunday League) but since we seem to have become as allergic to second seasons as Jose Mourinho, it’s a cross we have to bear.… Read More

Watford v CHELSEA: Preview

Date: Monday 5th February, 2018

Venue: Vicarage Road

Kick-off: 20:00 GMT

 

 

 

After a weekend of media crowing over Sanchez and Kane, the Monday night game sees us travel to Watford so that they can crow over Troy Deeney – and after the Bournemouth game, I don’t necessarily say that in jest.… Read More

CHELSEA v Newcastle: FA Cup Preview

 

Date: Sunday 28th January 2018

Venue: Stamford Bridge

Kick-off: 13.30

 

After going out of the League Cup midweek to Arsenal, today’s early kick-off sees us play host to Newcastle in the fourth round of the FA Cup but whilst most predictions I’ve seen seem to have us as firm favourites to go through, I’m less convinced.… Read More

Brighton & Hove Albion v CHELSEA: Preview

Date: Saturday 20th January 2018

Venue: Amex Stadium

Kick-off: 12:30 GMT

 

 

 

 

After a complete farce of a game against Norwich in the FA Cup, today’s early kick-off takes us to Brighton. We’ll be without Alvaro Morata and Pedro after they both saw red midweek, and quite probably Gary Cahill and Cesc Fabregas who are both nursing dodgy hamstrings.… Read More

CHELSEA v Leicester: Preview

Date: Saturday 13th January 2018

Venue: Stamford Bridge

Kick-off: 15:00 GMT

 

 

 

Today’s game sees us take on Leicester City at Stamford Bridge and I don’t know about anyone else but I feel about as enthusiastic as our players have looked in their last few games.… Read More

Norwich v CHELSEA: FA Cup Preview

 

Date: Saturday 6th January 2018

Venue: Carrow Road

Kick-off: 17:30 GMT

 

 

 

Today’s late game takes us to Carrow Road for an FA cup tie against Norwich. Currently 13th in the Championship table, the Canaries have lacked consistency this season although come into this game unbeaten in their last three.… Read More

CHELSEA v Stoke: Preview

 

 

 

 

 

 

Date: Saturday 30th December 2017

Venue: Stamford Bridge

Kick-off: 15:00 GMT

 

Today’s game has a touch of déjà vu about it because its almost a year to the day we last played Stoke at home in the league. This year though, we’re not riding quite as high because we go into this one below both Manchester clubs.Read More

Everton v CHELSEA: Preview

Date: Saturday 23rd December, 2017
Venue: Goodison Park
Kick-off: 12:30 GMT

Today’s early kick-off sees us travel to Goodison Park to take on an Everton side looking like they have a clue again under Sam Allardyce. Everton are unbeaten in their last five, with four wins and a draw, so it’s probably fair to say normal service has resumed after a disastrous start this season.… Read More
