Laurent Blanc Highlights How PSG Can Beat Chelsea 0

Posted on April 02, 2014 by Yomi

Speaking ahead of PSG’s clash with Chelsea tonight, Laurent Blanc has stressed the importance of shutting down Chelsea’s counter-attacking style:

“Yes, we know that Chelsea are a very counter-attacking team. They like to counter-attack. They will surely have chances to do that tomorrow, and next week, because you can’t control everything during a game.”

“We’ll have to be really strong defensively when it happens, because I think on Wednesday we have to score to win the game. When you play at home and you want to win, you need to make sure that you don’t concede goals. It will be important.”

Chelsea Suffers Double Injury Blow Ahead Of Crystal Palace Match 0

Posted on March 29, 2014 by Yomi

Chelsea have been struck by an injury blow ahead of their Premier League meeting with Crystal Palace this weekend. Ashley Cole has been ruled out with a recurring knee injury, while Samuel Eto’o has failed to recover from the hamstring injury he sustained in only the 10th minute of last weeks 6-0 win over Arsenal.

Cole is unlikely to have started even if he had been granted a clean bill of health, given the recent form of Cesar Azpilicueta. The right footed Azpilicueta has often been used ahead of Cole this season, as Mourinho is evidently impressed by the Spaniards defensive work rate.

Aston Villa vs Chelsea

As Chelsea get ready to confront its bogue team Aston Villa, they are aiming to maintain top spot and with fellow challengers Arsenal and Liverpool set to have a tough weekend (on paper) against Spurs and Manchester Utd respectively while City, who also don’t look to be cruising at the moment face Hull city at the KC stadium, they know that a loss is not an option. A win will keep Chelsea at the top 7 points ahead of Arsenal and Liverpool who play on Sunday but with City playing on earlier, their lead could be cut to 6 points by Kick Off.

Didier Drogba has admitted he is looking forward to returning to Stamford Bridge for Galatasaray’s Champions League last-16 second leg against Chelsea with the tie delicately poised at 1-1.

Having won three Premier League titles, four FA Cups and two League Cups with Chelsea, Drogba will return to the club he spent a successful eight-year spell for the first time as an opposing player.

Which Chelsea Players will set the World Cup Alight? 0

Posted on February 25, 2014 by admin

The World Cup must still seem a far-off event for the many international stars in Chelsea’s squad. There’s the small matter of some Premier League and Champions’ League silverware to contest before the club season’s out. The little horse has a long way left to run.


Still, unbelievably, the World Cup Finals in Brazil are now just four months away (meaning it’s now a terrifying three years and eight months since you first heard the dulcet tones of a vuvuzela). There’ll be no shortage of players from our squad jetting off on a variety of planes to South America, but only a select few are in with a real shout of individual and national glory, if you find yourself still asking When is World Cup 2014?

Posted on December 23, 2013 by Yomi

As the Blues head to the Emirates to take on Arsenal, Jose Mourinho has been speaking on the match as well as Wenger’s record signing, Mesut Ozil; calling him a “phenomenal player.”

The Gunners who have made a wonderful start to the 2013/2014 league season have had some good spell of form since the signing of the German international midfielder. However, Arsene Wenger’s team has not been able to win the last 3 matches in all competitions including the last one which they lost to both Napoli and Man City.

Can the Blues beat the Sky Blues?

As things stand, Chelsea are joint favourites with Man City to be lifting the Premier League title come next May. And it’s for this reason that there’s so much attention being focussed on the forthcoming match at the Bridge between the two richest clubs in English football today. But “who will win?” is the question we all need to know the answer to; particularly those of us who enjoy a bit of a punt now and again!

Blues’ Rooney chase: Could they do better?

This summer has been an interesting one to date as far as Chelsea are concerned. Eventually, they were able to bring back Jose Mourinho for a second spell as manager, while Roman Abramovich celebrated the 10th anniversary of his takeover of the club. They’ve also managed to sign a couple of young stars in Marco van Ginkel and Andre Schurrle for something in the region of £25m.

Mourinho effect makes Chelsea odds on for success 0

Posted on July 21, 2013 by Admin2

It is no secret to Chelsea fans just what a huge effect Jose Mourinho can have when he takes control of a football club. The special one came to Stamford Bridge back in 2004 and brought immediate success with him, claiming Chelsea’s first top flight title in 50 years, so it is no surprise that the bookies have shortened the odds on the Blues winning back the Premier League title considerably this season.
