Chelsea vs Leicester City Preview | Team News, Key Men & Predictions

Chelsea have shown positive signs under Frank Lampard, with youth players being given a chance and an attacking brand of football being implemented. However, they have shown some vulnerabilities defensively and the concerns over his lack of experience remain. Last weekend, they collapsed against Manchester United, with the space being offered to the home side being a huge problem picked up by Jose Mourinho in the post-match analysis. They struggled with pace on the counter-attack, which is why this weekend's …

Liverpool Vs Chelsea | UEFA Super Cup Preview | Team News, Stats & Key Men

Liverpool are going play in a final (of sorts) in Istanbul. Liverpool are going to play Chelsea in Europe. Both these statements when said in isolation, are loaded with meaning and memories for the Reds. They will get to relive the memories of both those statements when they play in the UEFA Super Cup on Wednesday night. Yes, the venue is not the Ataturk Stadium where Liverpool scripted the most miraculous of Champions League wins. Wednesday’s game is set to …
Mason Mount should be this season's breakout star at Chelsea

Mason Mount should be this season's breakout star at Chelsea

Mason Mount is a player that Chelsea supporters have been excited about for long time. It has been hoped that he would be the next success story to emerge from the club's excellent youth academy. In recent years, the path to the first-team has been blocked, due to the high standards of the club. However, two recent disappointments for the Blues has provided a huge opportunity to the English midfielder. The first was the transfer ban, which prevents the club …
Where Will Chelsea’s Goals Come From?

Where Will Chelsea’s Goals Come From?

It is not clear if Marina Granovskaia was aware that André Villas-Boas was back in the market after a year and a half out of the game, but the Portuguese former manager would have allowed himself a wry smile on learning about Frank Lampard’s appointment this summer.  Installed as manager by struggling Marseille a month before the Chelsea legend was announced as the Blues’ new boss, Villas-Boas famously tried and failed with his youth integration policy at Stamford Bridge eight …
Chelsea will never have a better opportunity to appoint Frank Lampard as manager

Chelsea will never have a better opportunity to appoint Frank Lampard as manager

Chelsea are unable to sign players for the next two transfer windows, after being given a transfer ban last …

Eden Hazard Bids Adieu to Chelsea: A Galactico Leaves the Premier League

The quality of football in most leagues across the world can be represented best by a handful of players who somehow become synonymous with the league they have been playing in. Think of La Liga and you get an image of Lionel Messi in your head. One year back, Ronaldo’s image would have accompanied the Argentine’s image. Similarly, when someone mentions the English Premier League, or when a video commercial of the EPL airs anywhere in the world, one of …
Chelsea will regret under-appreciating Maurizio Sarri

Chelsea will regret under-appreciating Maurizio Sarri

Maurizio Sarri has never been fully settled at Chelsea. He arrived late last summer and there has been scepticism regarding his coaching ability from both supporters and the media. However, he managed to deliver a top-four finish and a Europa League triumph in his first season. The Blues will have higher ambitions, but there is no doubting that the Italian coach has laid good foundations from which to build on. That is why Friday's news that he could be on …
Arsenal vs Chelsea | Europa League Final Preview

Arsenal vs Chelsea | Europa League Final Preview

Arsenal's entire season comes down to this single game. If they win and get back into the Champions League, this season can be considered a success. It's an absolute failure if they don't. They choked away a chance at the Champions League in the Premier League, they cannot afford to do that again by losing this game. Chelsea already have Champions League secured, but their manager could find himself on his way out anyway. Maurizio Sarri's future has been in …
