CHELSEA v Leicester: Preview

Date: Sunday 18th August 2019

Venue: Stamford Bridge

Kick-off: 16:30 BST

 

 

 

It’s Frank Lampard’s first home game in charge of Chelsea in the Premier League and with defeats against United in the League last weekend and Liverpool in the Super Cup midweek, he’ll be putting himself under pressure to turn the performances into points.… Read More

Kante and Pulisic start, Predicted Chelsea lineup (4-2-3-1) to face Leicester City

Chelsea entertain Leicester City in their first home game of the new Premier League campaign. The Blues are yet to taste a victory under the guidance of new boss Frank Lampard, but they have still been plenty of positives with a few players catching the eye under the 41-year-old’s guidance.

The Blues recently tackled Liverpool in the UEFA Super Cup where they produced a noteworthy performance but that was not sufficient to secure them the trophy after the Reds won on a penalty shoot-out following a 2-2 draw after added extra-time.… Read More

CHELSEA v Liverpool: Uefa Super Cup Preview

 

Date: Wednesday 14th August 2019

Venue: Vodafone Park, Istanbul

Kick-off: 20:00 BST

 

 

Since the start of the 2000s, tonight’s game will be the 60th meeting between Chelsea and Liverpool in all competitions. But whilst we’d have been pretty sure of ourselves up against Liverpool previously – and most other sides since Roman’s arrival to be honest – these are changing times.… Read More

Manchester United v CHELSEA: Preview

Date: Sunday 11th August 2019

Venue: Old Trafford

Kick-off: 16:30 BST

 

 

 

This could be a bit of a baptism of fire for Frank Lampard’s first Premier League game as Chelsea manager, as we open the 2019/20 campaign away at Old Trafford.

United were a bit of a different prospect last season and irrespective of how we played under Sarri, we still wouldn’t have feared playing them.… Read More

Barkley and Mount start, Predicted Chelsea lineup (4-2-3-1) to face Red Bull Salzburg

Chelsea play their second-last pre-season friendly against Red Bull Salzburg on the road tonight. Frank Lampard has generally preferred to play with different lineups for the first and second half respectively, but he may consider offering more minutes to the players, who are likely to feature in the season opener in less than two weeks’ time.… Read More

Leicester v CHELSEA: Preview

Date: Sunday 12th May 2019

Venue: King Power Stadium

Kick-off: 15:00 BST

 

 

 

After wishing this season over on an almost weekly basis for months, we’ve finally arrived at the last day.

I’m still worn out from watching the game against Eintracht Frankfurt on Thursday night, so I have no expectations from our players today whatsoever.… Read More

CHELSEA v Watford: Preview

Date: Sunday 5th May 2019

Venue: Stamford Bridge

Kick-off: 14:00 BST

 

 

 

I feel like a right old grouch. It’s our last home game of the season, Spurs lost yesterday, giving us the opportunity to pinch 3rd spot off them and yet I don’t feel inspired at all.… Read More

Manchester United v CHELSEA: Preview

Date: Sunday 28th April 2019

Venue: Old Trafford

Kick-off: 16:30 BST

 

 

 

This afternoon’s game is being labelled ‘the race for fourth place’ although this season has been more of a sponsored walk than a race for both of today’s sides. None of your Mo Farah-type sprints for these two sides, instead, we look more like we’ve steered off course from today’s London marathon, last over the finish line in a clown costume and big slippers – and that’ll just be our second half.… Read More

CHELSEA v Burnley: Preview

Date: Monday 22nd April 2019

Venue: Stamford Bridge

Kick-off: 20:00 BST

 

 

 

There’s been plenty of seasons gone by where, going into the final few games level on points with fourth place, I’d have thought we were in with a good shout of making the Champions League places, but in seasons past we were a different prospect.… Read More

Liverpool v CHELSEA: Preview

Date: Sunday 14th April 2019

Venue: Anfield

Kick-off: 16:30 BST

 

 

 

For those who haven’t read Gerrard’s autobiography (most, if not all of us), this fixture sent him into a spin, not to mention therapy, in 2014 and this is Liverpool’s first real go at the title since then.… Read More
