Kovacic In And Kante Out: Chelsea’s Predicted XI To Face Newcastle

Kovacic

Chelsea’s injury problems make it hard to predict who manager Frank Lampard will pick in his starting line up to face Newcastle tomorrow afternoon. Reece James and Emerson Palmieri are back in training but with Cesar Azpilicueta and Marcos Alonso having started the 4-1 win against Southampton last time out, it’s unlikely the Blues will …

Chelsea V Newcastle: Preview And Betting Odds

Frank Lampard

Chelsea manager Frank Lampard is sweating over the fitness of four players after they picked up knocks playing for their countries during the international break. N’Golo Kante suffered an adductor muscle injury in the warm-up before France’s game against Iceland, but he did make the substitute’s bench for the 1-1 draw versus Turkey on Monday …

James Out And Kovacic In: Chelsea’s Predicted XI To Face Southampton

Kovacic

Chelsea manager Frank Lampard switched to three at the back against Lille, but it is fair to say that they played their best football after going to a back four later in the game. For that reason, Reece James may miss out against Southampton tomorrow. Cesar Azpilicueta is a more a defensive right-back and playing …

Southampton V Chelsea: Match Preview And Betting Odds

Lampard smiling

Chelsea manager Frank Lampard would have been delighted with the reaction since the home defeat to Liverpool. A dominant win versus Brighton last weekend was followed up with a hard-fought victory against Lille midweek. Southampton, on the other hand, managed to lose to a Tottenham side who were down to ten men for an hour …

Zouma And Alonso To Start, James And Hudson-Odoi To Miss Out: Chelsea’s Predicted XI To Face Brighton

Lampard smiling

The 7-1 win over Grimsby in the Carabao Cup midweek would have given Chelsea manager Frank Lampard a number of selection dilemmas ahead of the game against Brighton. Reece James and Michy Batshuayi, in particular, impressed but Lampard is likely to go back to the team that only narrowly lost to league leaders Liverpool last …

Chelsea V Brighton: Match Preview And Betting Odds

After last night’s 7-1 hammering of Grimsby Town in the Carabao Cup, Chelsea will go into Saturday’s game against Brighton on a high.  The Seagulls, in contrast, have been struggling to score goals in recent matches, with their 3-1 loss to Aston Villa midweek coming off the back of a 0-0 draw versus Newcastle United …

Mount And Emerson To Start: Chelsea’s Predicted XI To Face Liverpool

Pulisic and Mount

Chelsea have a number of injuries heading into today’s game against Liverpool but Mason Mount gave manager Frank Lampard a boost by returning to training yesterday. In defence,  the Blues boss may opt to keep with Fikayo Tomori, Andreas Christensen and Kurt Zouma as the three centre-backs. Emerson is back in contention after a thigh …

Rudiger And Willian Out, Zouma And Pedro In: Chelsea’s Predicted XI To Face Valencia

Lampard smiling

Chelsea played well utilising the 3-4-3 against Wolves at the weekend, and with manager Frank Lampard having revealed that N’Golo Kante and Emerson won’t be fit to face Valencia, it seems very likely that the Blues boss will keep the system in place. Although it didn’t work as intended when it came to shoring up …

Rudiger And Pedro In, Tomori And Pulisic Out: Chelsea’s Predicted Starting Line Up To Face Wolves

Chelsea have a number of players coming back from injury after the international break, and it will be interesting to see who manager Frank Lampard will recall. In defence, Antonio Rudiger is back in contention but the Blues boss could choose to keep faith with Fikayo Tomori after performing well against Sheffield United on his …

Wolves V Chelsea: Match Preview And Betting Odds

Chelsea manager Frank Lampard will have a number of difficult decisions to make heading into the game against Wolves on Saturday. Antonio Rudiger is back fit, and considering the Blues’ poor defensive record this season, the Blues boss may be tempted to put the German into the starting line up despite having not played since …

Chelsea V Sheffield United: Match Preview And Betting Odds

Pulisic and Mount

Chelsea manager Frank Lampard will be relieved to have gotten the first three points of his reign with a 3-2 win against Norwich City last weekend. There is still some improvements to be made, especially in defence, but the victory at Carrow Road saw a lot to build on, including the performances from Tammy Abraham …

Frank Lampard

Frank Lampard will be desperate to get his first win under his belt as Chelsea manager this weekend. After a bright start against Leicester on Sunday, the Foxes’ comeback in the second half showed there is a lot more to do to get the Blues up to scratch. Saturday’s opponents Norwich are a dangerous team …

Lampard smiling

Chelsea boss Frank Lampard will be aiming for his first win of the season on Sunday as the Blues face Leicester City at Stamford Bridge.

Pulisic To Start And Mount To Drop Out: Chelsea’s Predicted XI To Face Liverpool

Mount

Chelsea will want to recover quickly from their heavy loss to Manchester United at the weekend.

Manchester United V Chelsea: Preview And Betting Odds

Frank Lampard

Chelsea may have not been able to make any significant additions to the squad due to the transfer ban but the arrival of Frank Lampard in place of Maurizio Sarri as manager means there is a great deal of positivity around the club heading into the new season. It’s hard to tell from friendlies whether …

Leicester City V Chelsea: Match Preview, Predicted XI And Betting Odds

Andreas Christensen & Maurizio Sarri

Chelsea manager Maurizio Sarri will likely use this game to give some squad players a chance to play with the Blues effectively having nothing to play for. They have already guaranteed a top-four finish and the only real incentive is to the finish ahead of Tottenham in third position. However, the club’s injury situation will …

Chelsea’s Predicted Line Up To Face Frankfurt: Kante Out And Emerson In For Alonso

Chelsea have a crucial away goal heading into tonight’s game against Eintracht Frankfurt at Stamford Bridge. For that reason, I believe manager Maurizio Sarri may opt for Emerson Palmieri ahead of Marcos Alonso for this match to keep a clean sheet. The rest of the back four pretty much picks itself with Gary Cahill (Achilles) …
