The Premier League season has been a disappointing one for Chelsea, but they go into the last day with a chance of a top-four finish. They have to travel to Newcastle and pick up three points to have any chance. Meanwhile, Liverpool will have to lose at home to Brighton.

The Premier League is drawing to a close and there is still something left to play for at both ends of the table. Swansea City are currently four points clear of the relegation zone, but as they have to play two of the three teams below them, their position is far from secure. Meanwhile, their opponents this weekend have a small chance of finishing in the top four. Although it seems unlikely, they won’t have given up hope and a …

Cesc Fabregas - A world class player in decline?

Cesc Fabregas will be remembered as one of the best midfielders of the modern era when he eventually hangs his boots up. The 30-year-old has been playing regularly since the 2004-5 season when he broke through at Arsenal at the age of 17. In the time since he has racked up an impressive 338 Premier League appearances across two spells in the division for two of England's biggest clubs. There is a case that the Spanish international is one of …
The Rebirth of Willian at Chelsea

The Rebirth of Willian at Chelsea

Chelsea have been criticised for being a one-man team for the entire season, as their attack is focused on Eden Hazard. If the Belgian international has a bad game, it is likely that the team will struggle to create and produce relatively little in the final third. Antonio Conte needed to find a solution in attack to prevent the side from being as predictable as they currently are. It seemed unlikely that it would come from within the current squad. That …

Olivier Giroud - Should he start for Chelsea ahead of Alvaro Morata?

Olivier Giroud was a surprise signing for Chelsea during the January transfer window. It is rare for a player to go from Arsenal to Stamford Bridge, but the early indications are that it could be a good move for the player. The French international was hardly playing for the Gunners as he lost his place to compatriot Alexandre Lacazette. A move across London may not have appeared to be the best career move, but the current Premier League champions play …
Chelsea - An out of form club that continues to decline

Chelsea - An out of form club that continues to decline

Chelsea were expected to consolidate their position as one of the best teams in Europe with another strong campaign under Antonio Conte. Last season, they were excellent and there was hope that they could challenge on multiple fronts after returning to the Champions League, especially with their new, fashionable 3-4-2-1 formation. Their early season victory over established contenders Atletico Madrid was a positive sign that they could be one of the frontrunners to lift the famous trophy for the second time …
