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

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

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

Crystal Palace v CHELSEA: Preview

Date: Sunday 30th December 2018

Venue: Selhurst Park

Kick-off: 12:00 GMT

 

 

There’s probably worse fixtures we could have in the middle of the Christmas period than the short trip to Selhurst Park but there’s also probably better times to play Crystal Palace than when they’ve hit the form they seem to have lately.… Read More

Watford v CHELSEA: Preview

Date: Wednesday 26th December 2018

Venue: Vicarage Road

Kick-off: 19:30 GMT

 

 

 

The wrapping paper is over-filling the recycle bin, there aren’t enough Alka Seltza to take care of yesterday’s excesses and the smell of Lynx Africa still weighs far too heavy but it’s back to the business of the Premier League already.… Read More

CHELSEA v Leicester: Preview

 

Date: Saturday 22nd December 2018

Venue: Stamford Bridge

Kick-off: 15:00 GMT

 

 

This afternoon’s game in the run up to Christmas sees us take on Leicester City at Stamford Bridge.

Chelsea come into the game off the back of wins in the league and cup, setting up a Carabao cup semi-final with Spurs after a hard-fought win against Bournemouth midweek.… Read More

Brighton v CHELSEA: Preview

Date: Sunday 16th December 2018

Venue: Amex Stadium

Kick-off: 13:30 GMT

 

 

 

After a draw in Europe midweek, and a rest for some of our players, today’s game sees us take the trip to the Amex Stadium to face Brighton. We clung onto the game against City by our fingertips for the first 40 minutes last week but came back at them to pull off a pretty impressive win in their first defeat of the season.… Read More

CHELSEA v Manchester City: Preview

Date: Saturday 8th December 2018

Venue: Stamford Bridge

Kick-off: 17:30 GMT

 

 

 

Maurizio Sarri said he was “very worried” after Wednesday’s debacle, I was pretty worried too, I just expressed it in different terms.

Some will have pointed to the penalty not given, others will say it was the foul on Willian completely missed before they scored, but the bottom line is we simply caved – to a side who’d lost five of their last six.… Read More
