Chelsea's John Obi Mikel | Underrated

Chelsea's John Obi Mikel | Underrated

The game against QPR was one that will not want to be remembered by many Chelsea fans. However, if it were remembered it would be for David Luiz, Frank Lampard and John Terry who were marauding around the pitch during the second half in passion. With Terry and Luiz pushing forward, Chelsea were left exposed in the second half when down to ten men and this is where John Obi Mikel comes in. Many media and opposition supporters class him …
Chelsea | Sturridge, Drogba or Torres?

Chelsea | Sturridge, Drogba or Torres?

Torres hasn't been able to replicate his form for Liverpool for Chelsea yet. If he had this question would arguably not even arise as with a 29% conversion rate in front of goal, there would be very few who could keep up with the Spaniards goal rate. Some may deny this, saying Drogba has always been the, literally, stronger striker and is more of a threat. However, in Drogba's most successful season in terms of goals, 2009/2010, his conversion rate was 20%. …
Chelsea | Season So Far

Chelsea | Season So Far

Chelsea are currently sitting in 3rd place in the EPL after 7 weeks of play and as we are now in the International Break, I have taken a look at how the top three compare so far. Manchester United & City both had a storming start to the season, although Chelsea’s start was a little slower; they are now catching up and not far behind City. So far, Chelsea have conceded more goals than United & City and have scored …
Bolton vs Chelsea | Match Review

Bolton vs Chelsea | Match Review

Well I'm glad to say we have played the best teams and they are out of the way for now. As much as I like to see the best in England and Europe playing at the Reebok, I get a little fed up of seeing my beloved Bolton getting hammered each week. As a fan, each goal we concede feels like I've done ten rounds in a boxing ring. Sunday again was no different except it just started a little earlier in …

Man United 3 Chelsea 1 | Clinical Finishing

Andre Villas-Boas' first stern test of the season ended with a loss for his team but based on this showing, he's making good progress. He set up Chelsea to attack and this made for a very open game, one that was enjoyed by all parties except, maybe, those on the losing side. Free flowing attacking games like today's are good in the sense that they expose weaknesses in a team's defensive and attacking play. In the opening 20 minutes of …

Manchester United vs Chelsea Preview

Manchester United vs Chelsea Preview

Manchester United play host to Chelsea on Sunday in a game that will give an early indication of where the title will be heading come the end of the season. Early predictions have put Manchester as the destination for the Premier League trophy but it would be unwise to discount a Chelsea team with experience and a double-winning manager at the helm. Playing each other so early in the season gives both sides a chance to size each other up …
Leighton Baines v Ashley Cole

Leighton Baines v Ashley Cole

Currently, the English national side seem to be undergoing a transitional phase before embarking on Euro 2012. Frank Lampard, despite playing against Wales,  appears to have moved to the periphery of  Fabio Capello's thinking, and many other established internationals, such as John Terry and Rio Ferdinand, are beginning to find their own selection far more scrutinised. With the likes of Chris Smalling, Phil Jones, Danny Welbeck, Jack Wilshere and Andy Carroll all coming through, the 2010 World Cup may have finally marked …
