Chelsea’s fixtures for the coming 2018/19 season have been announced. The blues begin the new campaign away at Huddersfield on the 11th August and finish away Cardiff. An important month for us looks to be April as the we face both Liverpool and Manchester United away which could be at a critical time towards the end of the season. We must improve on last season and just focus on each game as it comes. Come on Chelsea! What do you think is Chelsea’s most important month? #ktbffh #cfcnews #chelseanews #chelseaforthefans #chelsea #chelseafc #chelseafixtures #fixtures #newseason #weoldcup #summer #break #recovery #improve #conte #antonioconte #premierleague #premierleaguechampions
Chelsea football club is in a period of dismay and all questions are being pointed to the board about the development of the club. The blues are already two weeks into their summer break and we don’t even know who will be managing our team next season. If we don’t sort out the situation about a manager within the next week we will be caught up by the World Cup which will make it difficult to appoint a manager or sign players. News has also arisen about owner Roman Abramovich selling the club as he has had trouble with getting a new UK Visa. Chelsea look very weak and unorganised going into the summer where, out of all the challenging clubs for the title next season, we are in need of the biggest improvement to our squad. All eyes are on the board now who already appear stagnant in this transfer window. What do you thinks needs to be addressed at the club? #cfcnews #chelseanews #chelseaforthefans #ktbffh #chelsea #chelseafc #abramovich #romanabramovic #worldcup #manager #antonioconte #conte #transfers #transfernews #transferrumours
Chelsea vs Manchester United 1-0. Chelsea win the FA Cup final to secure a trophy this season. The blues had to put up a fight to defend their lead but we held on to lift the cup. Chelsea started the first half very well and were asking a lot of questions of a very reserved Manchester United side. In the 21st minute, Fabregas played a beautifully weighted pass to Eden Hazard who blitzed past Phil Jones and into the penalty area. Jones lunged into Hazard and subsequently fouled the Belgian and a penalty was awarded. Questions arose about a possible red card for the defender as it was a clear goal scoring opportunity which was denied, but Michael Olivier showed Jones just a yellow card. Eden Hazard stepped up to the spot and stuck the ball past De Gea to give Chelsea a deserved lead. The blues finished the half strongly without any real threat of conceding, however after the second half begun, Manchester United showed much more prowess going forwards and put a lot of pressure on Chelsea. The blues had to defend well for the rest of game and thankfully we managed to hold our lead. It’s such an achievement to have a trophy after our poor season and this is a great way to enter the summer. Well done to all the players today played magnificently in such an important match.

We are the 2018 FA Cup winners! A great way to end our season with a trophy and this secures our 8th FA cup win. We had to play as a team today and we showed great compassion to end our season on a high. Such a brilliant feeling!

Newcastle vs Chelsea 3-0. A dismal display from the blues today tops off a very poor overall season for Chelsea which sees us finish 5th. Chelsea were embarrassing and the players should be ashamed of their performance. The blues looked incapable of creating anything from the moment we kicked off and Newcastle took advantage of that and took the lead in the 23rd minute after a calamity by Thibaut Courtois gifted Dwight Gayle a free header into an open net. Newcastle made it two in the 59th minute as Jonjo Shelvey’s scruffed strike fell to Ayoze Perez, who was poorly marked by Azpilicueta, who knocked the ball past Courtois. The final Newcastle goal was the final blow that embarrassed Chelsea, after our horrendous defending of a set piece lead to Ayoze Perez netting his second and Newcastle’s third. Today was yet again a lack lustred performance which adds to the long list this season. Chelsea accumulated 6 shots to Newcastle’s 16 which was a clear indication of our intent going forwards. It’s a relief this season has finished... What needs to be done to amend this from happening next season? #ktbffh #cfcnews #chelseanews #chelseaforthefans #chelsea #chelseafc #premierleague #championsleague #europaleague #newcastle #azpilicueta #hazard #conte #antonioconte #perez #gayle #rest #recovery #break #summer #nextseason #newseason #giroud
Chelsea’s new home kit for the 2018/2019 season has been released by @nikefootball. The kit features horizontal red and white stripes across the shirt which is reminiscent to the kit the blues wore in the 1983/1984 season when they were promoted into the first division.

Congratulations to N’golo Kante who is our player of the season. Kante has made 44 appearances this season and has been extremely consistent in all of them and has clearly stood out. This man has been fantastic yet again and is completely deserved of the player of the season award. He has given everything this year and should be proud of his performances despite our poor campaign. Thank you for your achievements this season @nglkante and good luck next season. #ktbffh #cfcnews #chelseanews #chelseaforthefans #chelsea #chelseafc #chelseaawards #ngolokante #premierleague #playeroftheyear #poty #thankyou #award #kante
#Repost @chelsea_for_the_fans ・・・ Chelsea vs Huddersfield 1-1. Despite dominating the game with 75% of the ball, Chelsea fell short which means our only way of getting into the Champions League next season is if Liverpool lose and Chelsea win on the final day of the season. The blues created a multitude of chances in the first half, however they entered the dressing room at half time goalless as Huddersfield made it very difficult to break them down. Surprisingly, on the 50th minute it was Huddersfield who snatched a lead as Depoitre found space between Rüdiger and Azpilicueta and knocked the ball past Caballero and into the back of the Chelsea net. Chelsea were defiant to lose today and continued to pressurise and luckily got a goal back after a Huddersfield clearance hit Marcos Alonso in the face which was directed into the goal. Chelsea looked completely dominant with the ball but just couldn’t find a way through the one way traffic in Huddersfield box. The game finished with the points shared, which Huddersfield will be much more pleased with than us as they avoid relegation, which means the season looks to have ended today as Chelsea’s hopes of playing in the Champions league next season has diminished. Huddersfield defended valiantly tonight and Chelsea just didn’t get the luck that we needed which we must accept. All focus is on the FA Cup final now... #ktbffh #cfcnews #chelseanews #chelseaforthefans #chelsea #chelseafc #depoitre #alonso #marcosalonso #premierleague #championsleague #topfour #tottenham #spurs #liverpool #huddersfield #antonioconte #conte #rest #break #injury #recovery #facup #cupfinal

Chelsea vs Liverpool 1-0. The race for the top four is still on! Chelsea have managed to overcome our biggest hurdle in these last few games of the season to move to only two points behind fourth place. The blues played very well today and have really started to fight for a place in the Champions League next year in the remainder of the season. During the start of the game today, the blues had to endure Liverpool keeping a lot of possession, however going forward we looked more of a threat. Chelsea took the lead inside 32 minutes as Victor Moses’ direct cross found Olivier Giroud who nodded the ball past Karius. Chelsea continued to attack Liverpool and created chances but essentially let Liverpool hold the ball as they weren’t very effective in the final third. Chelsea held their lead and the game finished with Chelsea taking the three points which will give us a huge boost going into the last couple of games. Will Chelsea manage to clinch a top four finish in this Campaign? #ktbffh #cfcnews #chelseanews #chelseaforthefans #chelsea #chelseafc #premierleague #liverpool #championsleague #topfour #giroud #oliviergiroud #hazard #edenhazard #antonioconte #conte #injury #rest #break #salah #mosalah @tom.dunc @lewis.malley
Swansea vs Chelsea 0-1. Not our most prominent performance today but we got the job done against a team who are fighting a relegation battle. Chelsea took the lead very early on inside four minutes after Eden Hazard meandered his way through the Swansea defence and presented Fabregas with a ball just inside the box who elegantly lifted the ball into the net for his 50th premier league goal. Chelsea dominated the first half and could have got more for their efforts but the half ended with just the one goal lead. Surprisingly, Chelsea were quite passive in the second half and gave Swansea an opportunity back into the game as we didn’t really look very positive going forwards, however the game finished 1-0 to the blues fortunately. We are just two points behind Tottenham currently in the race for fourth place so we must keep going until the end of season as we still have hope of getting into the Champions League next season. Will Chelsea make up the ground on Spurs? #ktbffh #cfcnews #chelseanews #chelseaforthefans #chelsea #chelseafc #fabregas #cescfabregas #hazard #edenhazard #conte #antonioconte #spurs #tottenham #relegation #premierleague #topfour #championsleague #injury #rest #break #recovery
Chelsea vs Southampton 2-0. Chelsea have made it to the final of the Fa Cup and will face a Manchester United on the 19th May. A superb performances by the blues sees us to final of the Fa Cup in style. It was a goalless first half with Chelsea putting most of the pressure on Southampton but unable to find the net however just one minute into the second half Oliver Giroud broke the deadlock after scoring a wonderful goal after winding through three players to knock the ball into the back of the net. Chelsea doubled their lead and confirmed their place in the final after Alvaro Morata headed Azpilicueta’s cross past McCarthy. Chelsea played excellent and exiting football today and Eden Hazard looks back to his best after putting in a world class performance. This is great opportunity for Chelsea to do ourselves justice this season and pick up a trophy but we will need to be at our best against Manchester United. See you at the final! Can Chelsea go the full way and win at Wembley in May? #kttbfh #cfcnews #chelseanews #chelseaforthefans #chelsea #chelsea #facup #final #facupfinal #manunited #manchesterunited #morata #alvaromorata #giroud #oliviergiroud #southampton #hazard #edenhazard #antonioconte #conte #premierleague #pfaplayeroftheyear #rest #break #fitness #injury
Burnley vs Chelsea 1-2. A solid performance from Chelsea today and despite a slight scare Chelsea managed to take all three points at Turf Moor against an in-form Burnley side. Antonio Conte fielded a much changed side compared to last game as Emerson and Bakayoko both made starts and Morata and Giroud started together up front. Chelsea took the lead in the 20th minute after Victor Moses darted into the box and delivered a piercing cross which ricocheted off Burnley defender Kevin Long and into the net to give the blues a deserved lead. Chelsea controlled the game for the majority of the match however in the 64th minute Gudmundsson’s long range effort took a catastrophic deflection off Ashley Barnes which trickled into the goal. Chelsea responded quickly though as Emerson’s cross fell to the feet of Victor Moses who pelted the ball into the net from close range five minutes later. The blues managed to see out the remainder of the game to move to just five points behind Tottenham in a fourth place battle. It was a refreshing performance tonight as the blues played very well and adapted well to the two striker formation.

What a comeback! Southampton vs Chelsea 2-3. Despite being 2-0 with just 20 minutes remaining, the blues rose from their misery to score three swift goals to swipe Southampton’s lead. Chelsea didn’t start the game as quickly Southampton today, who looked desperate for some points, and this resulted in Chelsea going a goal down after ex-Chelsea player Ryan Bertrand meandered down the line and crossed the ball to Dusan Tadic who slotted the ball past Courtois. Southampton doubled the deficit as James Ward-Prowse’s set piece was found at the back post by Jan Bednarek who tapped the ball into the net to make it two. It looked like mission impossible for Chelsea who had lost all belief and looked deflated. In the 61st minute Antonio Conte brought on two substitutions in Pedro and Olivier Giroud to change the game. Within just seven minutes Olivier Giroud had already got himself on the scoresheet after his header beat McCarthy at the near post. Five Minutes later Chelsea drew level after Willian’s superb low cross fell to Eden Hazard who hammered the ball into the roof of the net. Unbelievably, Chelsea scored a third to take the lead, as the ball fell into super-sub Giroud’s path who volleyed it into the net to complete the remarkable comeback. The game ended with an extraordinary win for the blues after what looked to be a game out of reach by 60 minutes. The players have looked drained recently and that has been what has promoted our poor run of form but this game should give us the belief that we need again.

Chelsea vs West Ham 1-1. Yet another disappointing result in a game that we had complete control of for 70 minutes. Chelsea played some exciting and positive football today but were unable to kill the game off which cost us. Before the game began, the entire stadium gave their love to Ray Wilkins who sadly passed away this week which was heartwarming to see. The blues looked very creative going forwards in the first half and took the lead in the 36th minute after a short corner resulted in Alvaro Morata heading the ball down to Azpilicueta who was able to poke the ball into the net from close range. Azpilicueta payed his respect to Ray Wilkins as his celebration involved kissing the Chelsea badge and pointing to the black armband which was an emotional moment for such a loved man. Chelsea looked dangerous after they scored as Alvaro Morata had two goals disallowed for offside, however substitute Javier Hernandez stole a goal for West Ham in the 73rd minute just three minutes after coming off the bench. Chelsea were unable to clinch a late goal back and the game finished with the points shared in what looks to be a very poor season for the blues. This season is over and today’s game really sums our campaign up perfectly. We should focus on next season now and give the inexperienced players a run out as we don’t have much to lose anymore. What do you think that we should do for the remainder of the season? #ktbffh #cfcnews #chelseanews #chelseaforthefans #chelsea #chelseafc #raywilkins #wilkins #ray #westham #premierleague #azpi #azpilicueta #dave #chicharito #conte #antonioconte #rest #recovery #break #injury #morata #alvaromorata #premierleague #premierleaguechampions #champions #restinpeace #rip #love
I am deeply saddened to inform you of the passing away of former Chelsea and England Captain Ray Wilkins aged 61. Ray will forever be remembered in the hearts of everyone at Chelsea football club and I can only give my condolences to his friends and family.

Chelsea vs Tottenham 1-3. Chelsea’s hopes of qualifying for the Champions league next season looks to have been shattered as Tottenham have increased their advantage to eight points after sealing their first win at Stamford Bridge for 20 years today. Chelsea started the game well and looked to have a grasp on the game for the first half as Tottenham didn’t really seem to cause any threat to the blues. Chelsea took the lead in the 30th minute as Alvaro Morata rose to knock the ball into the goal after he was found by Victor Moses’ cross. Despite being dominant for the half, Chelsea found themselves walking into the tunnel drawing as Moses’ poor clearance gave the ball away for Eriksen to hit a magnificent shot from outside the box to beat Caballero in net. Chelsea conceded again in the 62nd minute as Eric Dier’s long ball found Dele Alli who calmly took the ball down and chipped the ball past Caballero to take the lead. Just four minutes later Dele Alli found himself in the scoresheet again as after a multitude of shots in the box, the ball fell to the Englishman to slot into the goal to double Tottenham’s lead. Chelsea couldn’t regain their grasp on the game for the remainder of the match and it finished with a disappointing result in a game that we needed to win desperately. I think that today we were very unlucky as in the first half we had control of the game and looked as if we could score more but unfortunately, due to a moment of magic from Eriksen, we went into the dressing room deflated and it completely changed the tone for both teams. It now seems very unlikely that we will finish in the top four this season... #ktbffh #cfcnews #chelseanews #chelseaforthefans #chelseafc #chelsea #tottenham #spurs #alli #delealli #dele #eriksen #christianeriksen #morata #alvaromorata #easter #eastersunday #topfour #premierleague #premierleaguechampions #championsleague #rest #break #recovery #injury
Leicester vs Chelsea 1-2. Chelsea surpass Leicester in extra time to progress into the semi-finals of the FA Cup where we will face Southampton at Wembley. The blues played really confidently today and controlled the pace of the game and looked comfortable going into extra time. Chelsea started the game well and played on the counter attack to get their opening goal as in the 42nd minute Willian produced a surging run out of danger from his own half and then freed Alvaro Morata with an exquisite through ball for the Spaniard to compose himself and knock the ball over Kasper Schmeichel. It was refreshing to see Morata on the score sheet today with his eleven match goal drought being crushed; this should give Morata more confidence which looks to have grown vastly today. In the 76th minute, the blues conceded as Leicester’s luck was in as Jamie Vardy knocked in their fourth attempt at goal after the ball kept falling to Leicester players as the ball looked destined to reach the back of the net. The game went to extra time where Chelsea looked much stronger as their quality shone through in the fatigue. Substitute Pedro found the winning goal in the 105th minute as he headed the ball over Schmeichel after latching onto Kante’s lofted cross. Chelsea are now through to the semi final in which we have drawn Southampton which is looking to be played on the 21st of April. This is our last chance to win a trophy this season so this semi final is a must win game for the blues.

Barcelona vs Chelsea 3-0. Chelsea are out of the Champions League after losing 4-1 on aggregate to Barcelona. Chelsea played well tonight and looked dangerous going forwards but it was our simple errors that cost us heavily over the two legs. Chelsea went behind just three minutes into the game after Lionel Messi was able to squeeze the ball through the legs of Thibaut Courtois from an acute angle, which the Belgian should have done better with. Chelsea found themselves two behind after 20 minutes, as a sloppy pass from Cesc Fabregas gave the ball to the dangerous Messi who managed to provide Ousmane Dembele with the opportunity to strike the ball past Courtois. Lionel Messi added to his personal tally as in the 63rd minute he blitzed past our defence and knocked the ball through Courtois’ legs for the second time this evening. The blues were denied by the woodwork twice again tonight and created many chances going forwards but our mistakes that we made to give Barcelona their goals across both ties have proved fatal. It was always going to be a difficult tie for Chelsea but I think that we played well during both games and can take positives away from this and can now focus on the league in what has proven to be a poor season overall. Did Chelsea do themselves justice tonight? #cfcnews #chelseanews #chelseaforthefans #ktbffh #chelsea #chelseafc #conte #antonioconte #hazard #willian #edenhazard #championsleague #premierleague #premierleaguechampions #chelseachampions #dembele #ousmanedembele #messi #lionelmessi #transfers #injury #break #rest #recovery #barca #barcelona
Chelsea vs Crystal Palace 2-1. Chelsea take all three points today despite a late scare as Crystal Palace managed to provide a tense ending to the game after reducing our lead to one goal in the dying minutes. Chelsea opened the scoring in the 25th minute as Willian’s long range effort took a slight deflection and found the net. Chelsea went two goals to the good after Zappacosta’s shot hit Martin Kelly, as he was attempting to stop the ball crossing the line, and was put into his own net. Chelsea looked to have the game sewn up after many clear opportunities arose for the blues however Crystal Palace hit back as Van Aanholt knocked the ball underneath Courtois to produce a nervy ending to the game. Chelsea played very well today and created a handful of chances however weren’t clinical enough in front of goal. We have now made up some ground behind Liverpool and are only four points away from them so we still have it all to play for this season. Will Chelsea manage to finish in the top four this season? #ktbffh #cfcnews #chelseanews #chelseaforthefans #chelsea #chelseafc #chelseachampions #liverpool #crystalpalace #eagles #premierleague #premierleaguechampions #wilian #zappacosta #vanaanholt #conte #antonioconte #rest #recovery #break #injury
Manchester City vs Chelsea 1-0. A shameful performance from Chelsea today as the blues were completely disgraceful in their intent to attack Man City. Today was one of the worst performances I have seen the blues play; we played negatively from the moment the game began and continued to play that way whilst we were losing. The players should be ashamed of the way their played today and need to take responsibility from this defeat as the pressing today was very lacklustre and most of them looked defeated before the game begun. Chelsea somehow managed to keep a clean sheet for the first half of the game despite looking unable to maintain the ball and passing it backwards at every opportunity. However, it took Manchester City just 35 seconds to break Chelsea’s defence in the second half after Andreas Christensen’s mistake lead to David Silva gaining possession who crossed the ball to an unmarked Bernardo Silva who put the ball in the net at the back post. Chelsea kept the same game plan after conceding the goal and refused to go forwards and maintained their defeatist attitude. The game ended only 1-0 to Manchester City today surprisingly considering the way we played. I think that Chelsea showed Man City too much respect and had a negative attitude before the game even kicked off. The players were a disgrace today as they weren’t even trying win the ball back once they went a goal down. What were your thoughts after watching today’s game? #ktbffh #cfcnews #chelseanews #chelseaforthefans #chelsea #chelseafc #premierleague #premierleaguechampions #chelseachampions #conte #antonioconte #hazard #willian #bernadosilva #silva #davidsilva #sane #leroysane #rest #break #injury #fitness #recovery
Man United vs Chelsea 2-1. A disappointing performance from the blues despite an electrifying start to the game. Chelsea lost steam as the game progressed yesterday and showed a weak mentality to let Manchester United back into the game when we were controlling it. The blues looked exhilarating as soon as the game kicked off and controlled the play well. Alvaro Morata had an attempt repel off crossbar in the 4th minute after some mesmerising play from Chelsea during the build up. The blues managed to take the lead in the 32nd minute as Eden Hazard found Willian with a brilliantly weighted through ball, who hammered the ball past De Gea at his near post. The lead didn’t last for long though as Manchester untied equalised in the 39th minute after Romelu Lukaku slotted the ball into the net from inside the box after he was found by Alexis Sanchez. Man United started to control the game after this and Chelsea looked unimaginative going forwards. Chelsea went behind after substitute Jesse Lingard headed Romelu Lukaku’s cross into the net and the game ended 2-1. It was a shame to see a such a transformation in the way we played early on to the style that we finished the game. I think fatigue could have played a part in the game as going forwards their didn’t seem to be much energy during the second half which was down to playing two very demanding games this week. We have now dropped out of the top four and are playing catch up on retaining our champions league place. Will Chelsea finish in the top four this season? #ktbffh #cfcnews #chelseanews #chelseaforthefans #chelsea #chelseafc #manunited #manchesterunited #lingard #lukaku #romelulukaku #jesselingard #willian #mourinho #conte #antonioconte #topfour #chmapionsleague #tired #tiredness #premierleague #premierleaguechampions #chelseachampions #fitness #rest #break #injury #hazard
Chelsea vs Barcelona 1-1. The blues put in a strong performance against one of Europe’s best teams tonight but unfortunately only came away with a draw despite taking the lead. Barcelona had a lot more possession than we did but Chelsea created more chances to score and looked dangerous when counter attacking. Chelsea hit the post twice through two Willian strikes from outside the box before scoring through the Brazilian in the 62nd minute after Hazard found Willian unmarked on the edge of the box with just enough room to drill the ball along the floor into the back of the net. Barcelona equalised however in the 75th minute as Andreas Christensen’s astray pass latched onto Iniesta who cut the ball back for Lionel Messi who comfortably passed the ball in from 15 yards out. The game ended 1-1 which isn’t a bad result for the blues considering we have drawn arguably the hardest team in the competition. Chelsea now have to score on our visit to the Nou Camp if we want any chance of progressing into the next round as Barcelona have an away goal to their advantage. We have beaten Barcelona many times before and if we play the way we did tonight then we can come away with the result. Was this a good result for the blues? #ktbffh #cfcnews #chelseanews #chelseaforthefans #chelsea #chelseafc #chelseachampions #willian #messi #lionelmessi #iniesta #conte #antonioconte #premierleague #premierleaguechampions #championsleague #barcelona
Chelsea vs Hull 4-0. A stomping performance from the blues solidifies our next step into the final eight in the FA Cup. Conte fielded a rested side today, due to our champions league game against Barcelona this week, as we saw the likes of Willy Caballero, Ethan Ampadu and Emerson start today. Chelsea took the lead after two minutes as Willian’s trickery outside the box opened up space for the Brazilian to curl one into the side of the net for the advantage. Chelsea doubled their lead in the 27th minute as Cesc Fabregas played a beautifully weighted pass into Pedro who slotted the ball into the net comfortably. Willian added to his personally tally in the 32nd minute as his drilled shot from outside the box trickled past David Marshall in net for his second and Chelsea’s third of the night. The blues made it four goals to the good before half time as Olivier Giroud scored his first goal in Chelsea colours after tapping in a cross from Emerson on his debut. Chelsea seemed to hold off for the rest of the match after comfortably leading almost imminently from kickoff, however Willy Caballero made a superb save from David Meyler after Chelsea gave away a penalty during the second half. The blues are through to the 6th round of the FA cup and look on much better form after thumping Hull but face a much more devastating opponent in the likes of Barcelona next.

Are Chelsea already regretting letting Michy Batshuayi go out on loan for the rest of the season? The Belgian has been sent out on loan to Borussia Dortmund for the remaining games of the season after Batshuayi struggled for game time and was out of favour with Antonio Conte. Batshuayi has already scored five goals and got one assist in his first three games with his new club and has really found his feet in the Bundesliga. Chelsea have clearly been struggling for goals coming from forwards in 2018 as Morata has been injured and Giroud has just been thrown into the squad. I said as soon as Batshuayi was sent on loan that we will miss him as he is a very talented player but just lacks confidence. Unfortunately, he has joined the likes of Andre Shürrlle at Dortmund who will have a very clear and strong view on how important game time is at Chelsea and will probably influence Batshuayi to go to a club where he will start every game. The only positive I can see that will come out of this move is that Batshuayi is getting more experience as he is still a young player and his confidence looks to have shot up. He really is proving why Chelsea shouldn’t have let him go. Will Batshuayi’s trip to Dortmund end up being positive or negative loan move? #chelseanews #chelseaforthefans #ktbffh #cfcnews #chelsea #chelseafc #chelseachampions #batshuayi #michybatshuayi #bundesliga #europaleague #dortmund #borussiadortmund #premierleague #premierleaguechampions #transfers #transfer #transfernews #loan #transferrumours #injury #break #rest #recovery #giroud #morata #alvaromorata #oliviergiroud @mbatshuayi
Chelsea vs West Brom 3-0. A relieving result sees Chelsea move back into the top four and answer some questions ahead of Antonio Conte’s future. Today was a vital game which has lifted some pressure off Conte after our recent run of form. After a nervous start, Chelsea took the lead in the 25th minute after some great link up between Hazard and Giroud which saw the Belgian play a swift one-two with his new strike partner and then drill the ball across the face of Ben Foster for the opener. Chelsea made it two in the 63rd minute as a deflection from a West Brom defender fell to Victor Moses who attempted to pass to Hazard only for the ball to be returned to him to tap the ball into the back of the net. Eden Hazard lit up the stadium for his second goal as in the 71st minute the Belgian played another incisive one-two with his striker, Alvaro Morata, and then hammered the ball from range past Foster who was unmoved from his spot. An electrifying performance from Chelsea tonight, Hazard especially, which saw the game flow more than in previous matches as we had a focal point in Giroud up front which helped us find a target to aim for and then play off. Hopefully this form can continue as our coming run of games is very tough. What was the main difference in terms of style of play to our last two disappointing performances? #ktbffh #cfcnews #chelseanews #chelseaforthefans #chelsea #chesleafc #chelseachampions #giroud #oliviergiroud #hazard #edenhazard #moses #victormoses #antonioconte #conte #premierleague #premierleaguechampions #injury #rest #recovery #break #transfer #transfers
Watford vs Chelsea 4-1. Absolutely disgraceful. The blues showcase a woeful performance which could be Antonio Conte’s last game as manager. Chelsea’s first problem came when Tiemoué Bakayoko, who looked unable to do anything positive, carelessly got himself sent off for a second yellow card in the 30th minute, just five minutes after picking up his first booking. In the 42nd, Watford’s continuous pressure pierced Chelsea’s defence as Deulofeu was tripped by Thibaut Courtois and awarded a penalty to which Troy Deeney scored. Despite playing horrendously throughout the match, Chelsea equalised through a moment of magic from Eden Hazard whose long range effort rippled the net, giving hope back to blues. This was overruled by Watford just two minutes later as Janmaat was allowed to walk through the Chelsea defence and slot the ball past Courtois almost effortlessly to give Watford back what they deserved. Gerard Deulofeu gave Watford their third goal four minutes later after his strike took a deflection off Gary Cahill and found itself in the back of the net. Chelsea embarrassed themselves further as Watford found a fourth as Roberto Pereyra’s shot whistled past Courtois into the side netting. I’m speechless with the performance that I just watched and something needs to change imminently. I hate to say it, but, I think Antonio Conte will be sacked by tomorrow morning. The players should be ashamed after putting in a performance like that. Fact: Watford had 21 shots to Chelsea’s 7 during the game. Should Antonio Conte get the sack? #ktbffh #cfcnews #chelseanews #chelseaforthefans #chelsea #chelseafc #conte #antonioconte #contein #watford #premierleague #premierleaguechampions #hazard #edenhazard #abramovich #sack #rest #recovery #break #injury
Chelsea have been busy during the January transfer window and have spent a total of £57 million on three new additions to the club as well as loaning out eight players. The blues have had a troublesome January after winning just three of a possible nine games during the month, so transfers clearly needed to be made to improve the squad. However, I feel that Chelsea have additionally had a very poor transfer window as we haven’t brought in anyone who will improve our starting eleven and have also shifted some young talents out on loan who were more than capable of breaking into the first team. I can only visualise that Chelsea are either waiting for the summer to address the problems inside the squad or Antonio Conte may be getting the sack at the end of this season and they will let the new manager buy the appropriate players when he arrives; hopefully that isn’t the case. What do you think of our January transfer window and who do you think will prove to be the most useful signing? #cfcnews #chelseanews #chelseaforthefans #ktbffh #chelsea #chelseafc #premierleague #premierleaguechampions #premierleaguetrophy #transfers #transfer #transfernews #transferrumours #cfctransfers #giroud #oliviergiroud #barkley #rossbarkley #emerson #emersonpalmieri #conte #antonioconte #newmanager #january #rest #recovery #break #fitness #injury
Chelsea vs Bournemouth 0-3. Speechless. Chelsea crumble defensively in the second half and suffer an embarrassing defeat to the visitors Bournemouth. The blues started the first half well and created some huge chances but struggled to put the ball in the back of the net. Bournemouth pinned Chelsea back in the second half as, despite resisting the chances that we created in the first half, the Cherries got one of their own as Calum Wilson latched on to a through ball from Jordan Ibe and finished past Courtois. It got even worse for Chelsea as Bournemouth managed to double their lead after some poor defending from Chelsea left Stanislas with a golden opportunity to knock the ball past Courtois for their second. With the game already looking to be concluded for Chelsea, Bournemouth picked up even more momentum and embarrassed the blues by scoring their third just three minutes later as ex-Chelsea player Nathan Ake found himself in more than enough space, again due to the shameful defending from Chelsea, to tap the ball into the net. The game finished 0-3 resulting in Chelsea subsequently falling into fourth place behind Liverpool. The boys should be ashamed with how they defended and going forwards we clearly lacked a prominent striker. The cracks are still showing for the blues at the moment and this looks to be weakening Antonio Conte who is under a huge amount of pressure. What do Chelsea need to do to fix this crisis? #ktbffh #cfcnews #chelseanews #chelseaforthefans #chelsea #chelseafc #bournemouth #cherries #premierleague #premierleaguechampions #premierleaguetrophy #hazard #edenhazard #wilson #ake #nathanake #rest #recovery #break #injury #transfer #transfers #transfernews #transferrumors #giroud #oliviergiroud #conte #antonioconte #crisis
Done deal. Michy Batshuayi has joined Borussia Dortmund on loan until the end of the season. Batshuayi has struggled for consistency this season however has scored 12 goals in a range of competitions despite playing second fiddle to Alvaro Morata. I’m devastated with this decision by the club as Batshuayi is a lethal finisher and is great player to come off the bench in times of need as we have previously seen. Chelsea have spent £17.5 million on the signing of Olivier Giroud who will take Batshuayi’s position as our second choice striker and is of the same quality. This just shows that the club are just spending their money unnecessarily which is very worrying. What are your thoughts on the decision to loan Batshuayi to Dortmund? #ktbffh #cfcnews #chelseanews #chelseaforthefans #chelsea #chelseafc #premierleague #premierleaguetrophy #premierleaguechampions #oliviergiroud #giroud #batshuayi #michybatshuayi #aubameyang #chelseatransfer #cfctransfers #transfer #transfers #transfernews #transferrumours #rest #break #recovery #injury #Conte #antonioconte
Done deal. Chelsea have signed Olivier Giroud from Arsenal for a fee of £17.5 million. The Frenchman has signed an 18 month contract and will wear the number 18 shirt. Personally I’m disappointed with the business of this transfer as although Giroud has scored 50 premier league goals, I can’t see him getting into the first team and he just looks like a quick fix problem to our lack of goals recently. Chelsea don’t really have anything to salvage this season as we clearly aren’t going to win the league, we are out of the Carabao cup, we have drawn Barcelona in the next round of the champions league and don’t look like we are going to win the FA Cup either. I’m sure Chelsea will sign some quality players this summer, especially after the World Cup, so it just seems like a waste of cash in my opinion. Despite that, Welcome Olivier Giroud, I honestly hope you prove me wrong. What are your opinions on the signing of Olivier Giroud? #ktbffh #cfcnews #chelseanews #chelseaforthefans #chelsea #chelseafc #premierleague #premierleaguetrophy #premierleaguechampions #oliviergiroud #giroud #batshuayi #michybatshuayi #aubameyang #chelseatransfer #cfctransfers #transfer #transfers #transfernews #transferrumours rest #break #recovery #injury #Conte #antonioconte
Done deal. Emerson Palmieri has joined Chelsea for a fee of £25 million from AS Roma after signing a four and a half year deal with the blues. The Italian is a very quick left wing back which will strengthen our depth in that role and will give Marcos Alonso some needed competition. Emerson is also very young as he is only 23 so will have time to adapt to the Premier league. With just one more day left of the transfer window, the blues have finally added to the signing of Ross Barkley and have built on the depth of the squad which will be very prominent as recently the players have looked fatigued. Welcome @emersonpalmieri33 Are you happy with the signing of Emerson? #ktbffh #cfcnews #chelseaforthefans #chelseanews #chelsea #chelseafc #chelseachampions #premierleague #premierleaguechampions #emerson #emersonpalmieri #chelseatransfer #alonso #marcosalonso #conte #antonioconte #transfer #transfers #transfernews #transferrunours #injury #rest #recovery #break #batshuayi
Chelsea vs Newcastle 3-0. The blues surpassed Newcastle and secured their place in the fifth round of the Fa Cup today. Chelsea did themselves justice today and played very stylishly at times to surmount Newcastle. Michy Batshuayi, a man in confusion at the moment, scored Chelsea’s first in the 31st minute after Marcos Alonso cut the ball back to the Belgian inside the box for a simple finish. This seemed to lift Batshuayi’s confidence massively as the forward looked much more composed on the ball and created some fabulous chances afterwards. Batshuayi got himself on the scoresheet for a second time, as he latched onto a great through ball from Eden Hazard and drilled the ball into Jamaal Lascelles which deflected into the net. Chelsea managed to score a third to confirm the victory by the 72nd minute as Marcos Alonso’s impeccable free kick sunk Newcastle. A very important performance today which will hopefully lift Chelsea again and the confidence of some of our players. Great to see Batshuayi on the scoresheet today, especially after playing so well, as he is a man in need of some assurance. Does Michy Batshuayi deserve to start our next game against Bournemouth following this form? #ktbffh #cfcnews #chelseanews #chelseaforthefans #chelsea #chelseafc #chelseachampions #premierleague #premierleaguetrophy #premierleaguechampions #batshuayi #michybatshuayi #marcosalonso #alonso #fitness #rest #recovery #break #injury #facup #fa #transfer #transfers #transfernews #transferrumors
There are just four days left of the transfer window and Chelsea are still yet to add to their only signing in Ross Barkley this window. The blues have clearly been struggling in the new year and Antonio Conte has been looking to bolster our wing back positions and our secondary striker. Scoring goals has been a problem recently and looks as if Chelsea want to sign a quick-fix problem striker as Conte doesn’t seem to have full faith in Michy Batshuayi as a backup striker for Alvaro Morata. Chelsea also need to strengthen the wing back roles as going forwards we don’t seem to be very creative down the flanks which is probably because our current wing backs are getting tired, so bringing in a wing back would definitely freshening up the team. Here are the players that Chelsea have been linked with recently: • Edin Dzeko (Roma) • Olivier Giroud (Arsenal) • Alex Sandro (Juventus) • Emerson (Roma) Who do you think would be the biggest asset to Chelsea’s team? #ktbffh #cfcnews #chelseanews #chelseaforthefans #chelsea #chelseafc #premierleague #premierleaguetitle #premierleaguechampions #edindzeko #dzeko #giroud #alexsandro #emerson #oliviergiroud #transfers #transfer #transfernews #transferrumours #rest #recovery #injury #break #conte #antonioconte #cfctransfers
Arsenal vs Chelsea 2-1. Chelsea crash out of the Carabao cup at the last hurdle in reaching the final. Chelsea were awful after we scored our first goal and we go out deservedly. Chelsea took the advantage early on as Pedro threaded a brilliant through into Eden Hazard who comfortably finished past Ospina. Chelsea were playing some great football but then stopped and let Arsenal come back into the game and subsequently gifted them a goal in the 12th minute as Nacho Montreal’s header took a double deflection and repelled off Rüdiger’s head and past Caballero in goal. Arsenal gained the lead in the 60th minute as Lacazette’s deflected cross fell to Granit Xhaka who knocked the ball inti the back of the net. The game ended 2-1 to Arsenal who now progress into the final of the competition. It feels devastating to go out in such a fashion but it was comepltely down to us today. As soon as the game begun Chelsea looked much sharper than Arsenal and got the deserved goal but we let Arsenal back into the game straight away. Apart from Eden Hazard, not a single player should be proud of their performance; we had no creativity going forwards and our defending was a shambles. Very disappointed with the performance but we must move forwards and learn from this. What was the reason Chelsea collapsed straight after scoring? #ktbffh #cfcnews #chelseanews #chelseaforthefans #chelsea #chelseafc #chelseachampions #premierleague #premierleaguetitle #premierleaguechampions #edenhazard #hazard #barkley #rossbarkley #xhaka #monreal #carabaocup #final #leaguecup #arsenal #rest #break #recovery #injury #transfer #transfers #transfernews #transferrumours
Done deal. Kenedy has joined Newcastle United on a loan deal for the remaining games of the season. The Brazilian has made just five appearances for the blues this season in all competitions however has been good going forwards and looks to have a lot of natural talent. This loan move will definitely help Kenedy gain more confidence as I imagine that he will play regularly for Newcastle but I think that he could have easily contested for a first team place if given the opportunity as he is a very skilful player who is great going forwards. Good luck for the rest of the season to Kenedy and I hope that he can improve during his time at Newcastle and get a feel for the intensity of the Premier league. Is this a good move for Kenedy and Chelsea? @kenedy #ktbffh #cfcnews #chelseanews #chelseaforthefans #kenedy #newcastle #newcastleunited #premierleague #premierleaguetitle #premierleaguechampions #injury #rest #break #recivery #transfer #transfers #transfernews #transferrumours #carabaocup #facup #leaguecup
Brighton vs Chelsea 0-4. A refreshing performance today sees Chelsea pick up their first win in the new year and in stylish fashion. Chelsea played much more fluently going forwards today which was controlled by Hazard and Willian who were both excellent. Chelsea had the perfect start to the game as we took the lead inside three minutes as Victor Moses’ deflected cross fell to Eden Hazard who struck the ball into the net from inside the box. The blues found themselves two goals ahead just six minutes in as we produced a spectacular team goal - Willian fed the ball to Eden Hazard who flicked the ball to Michy Batshuayi who then flicked the ball back to Willian who thumped the ball from outside of the box and into the net. Chelsea then seemed to sit back for the majority of the remaining first half which invited pressure from Brighton who came close to scoring themselves. Willy Caballero pulled off some brilliant saves but also found difficulty in catching the ball which gave opportunities to Brighton. Chelsea managed to kill the game off in the 77th minute as Eden Hazard made a great run in behind and then rounded it off with a tidy finished in which he directed the ball into the bottom left corner from outside of the box. In the 89th minute Chelsea managed to flatter the scoreline by adding a fourth as substitute Charly Musonda’s excellent long ball met Victor Moses who knocked the ball calmly past Matthew Ryan. It was great to see that we are on track again and hopefully this will give us the confidence that we needed for moving forwards. The scoreline didn’t really reflect the game overall today though as Brighton did create chances and played well at times but I’m glad that Chelsea were ruthless and more clinical in front of goal. The football that we played going forwards was exquisite and that was empathised by the second goal that we scored today which should give us our confidence back. Was this the result that we needed to kick-start our season again? #cfcnews #chelseanews #ktbffh #chelseaforthefans #chelsea #chesleafc #chelseachampions #brighton #edenhazard #hazard #willian #moses #victormoses #premierleague #transfer #transfernews #transfers #injury
Chelsea vs Norwich 1-1 (5-3 penalties). The blues made difficult work of Norwich in their second tie in the Fa cup however progress to the fourth round in which we will face Newcastle at Stamford Bridge on the 28th January. Chelsea did not play well for the majority of the game yesterday and the luck didn’t seem to be on our side. Chelsea only managed to break the deadlock 55 minutes into the game after Michy Batshuayi found the net after some tricky work down the left hand side from Kennedy set up the Belgian to tap in his cross. In the 92nd minute Willian was clearly tripped inside the penalty area but the referee booked Willian for simulation and refused to even look at the VAR for help. A clear wrong decision by the referee for not the first time today. Chelsea still couldn’t find a second to kill the game off and in the 94th minute were inevitably punished as Jamal Lewis’ superb header looped into the Chelsea net for the last kick of the 90 minutes. With the pressure on Chelsea to score in extra time, things got heated and Pedro received his second yellow card of the game in the 117th minute. His first booking was for simulation, and deservedly so, and the second for a foul that stopped a Norwich counter attack. Things got embarrassing for Chelsea although as they were reduced to nine men after Alvaro Morata was sent off for two bookable offences. Morata was clearly pulled inside the penalty area however the referee booked him for simulation aswell. Morata was then booked for dissent after arguing with the referee. The game went to penalties and luckily for Chelsea Willy Caballero saved Nelson Oliveira’s penalty. The blues managed to score all of there penalties as Willian, Luiz, Azpilicueta, Kante and Hazard all buried there penalties. It was justice as the referee was very poor and looked to be searching for any reason to help the opposition. Very disappointing performance though as we couldn’t kill the game off earlier on. The boys must improve as our poor form is continuing. #ktbffh #cfcnews #chelseanews #chelseaforthefans #conte #antonioconte #facup #var #willian #batshuayi #hazard #edenhazard #chelsea #chelseafc #pedro #morata #alvaromorata
Chelsea vs Leicester 0-0. Yet another disappointing result which continues our winless run in the new year. Courtois made some pivotal saves today to keep Chelsea in the game as Leicester put the pressure on Chelsea. The blues couldn’t even break down Leicester after the Foxes were reduced to ten men as Ben Chillwell was booked twice, the second being a dangerous lunging tackle on Victor Moses. The game ended 0-0 for the second time this week and alarm bells are ringing at Stamford Bridge as the blues cannot seem to find a win. Another problem for Chelsea arose today as Captain Gary Cahill limped off and was replaced by Christensen 32 minutes into the game after the Englishmen looked to have pulled his hamstring. We need a change of formation as teams seem to be closing our attacks down and putting all men behind the ball to suffocate us. What changes need to be made to the team to end this poor run? #ktbffh #cfcnews #chelseanews #chelseaforthefans #chelsea #chelseafc #chelseachampions #leicester #barkley #rossbarkley #morata #alvaromorata #premierleague #premierleaguetitle #premierleaguechampions #garycahill #cahill #antonioconte #conte #injury #break #rest #recovery #transfers #transfer #transfernews #transferrumours
Chelsea vs Arsenal 0-0. A goalless affair at the Bridge sees Chelsea travel to the Emirates in two weeks with it all to play for as neither team could obtain an advantage today. Chelsea were the better team by far today but couldn’t execute the final pass or finish properly. It wasn’t a great match to watch as neither team brought much creativity to the game but the blues came close to scrambling a goal in a couple of times. Apart from Victor Moses’ cross that repelled off the post, the first half was quite uneventful. The second half was more lively from Chelsea but we still couldn’t put the ball in the back of the net and the game ended goalless. Although we were not very clinical going forwards, Chelsea looked very solid defensively and that is a positive that we can take from today’s game. It’s all still to play for now in the second leg on the 24th January so we must improve for then as I’m sure it will be much harder at the Emirates. What was our main problem going forwards today? #ktbffh #cfcnews #chelseanews #chelseaforthefans #chelsea #chelseafc #arsenal #chelseachampions #eflcup #leaguecup #carabaocup #morata #hazard #edenhazard #alvaromorata #premierleague #premierleaguechampions #premierleaguetitle #transfers #transfer #transfernews #transferrumours #injury #rest #break #recovery
Happy birthday to Eden Hazard who turns 27 years old today. Our golden boy has been brilliant over the five years he has spent at Chelsea and for me he is one of the greatest players in the club’s history. The Belgian is up there with the best players in the world and I can see him winning the Ballon D’or in the foreseeable future. Hazard is one of my favourite players to put in the blue shirt as he expresses himself on the pitch and definitely entertains the crowd. We wish Eden Hazard a happy 27th birthday.

Norwich vs Chelsea 0-0. One of the worst performances of the season. Hardly any chances created against the championship side which sees Chelsea have to play a second leg on January the 16th if we are to progress in the competition. Antonio Conte made nine changes to his starting eleven today but it seemed to backfire as the second set couldn’t surpass Norwich who defended well today. The blues failed to produce a single shot on target in the first half and found difficulty in executing their final pass. With 15 minutes to go, Antonio Conte decided to replace Michy Batshuayi, who had been very poor today, with Alvaro Morata but even he couldn’t find a way past the Norwich defence meaning the game ended goalless. This is very frustrating as we have put extra pressure on ourselves to win in the next leg and also have made our run of fixtures even more congested as we now have another game added to our fixture list. Bakayoko was yet again very poor today and does not deserve a spot in the team at all and I was also very disappointed with Michy Batshuayi’s finishing today. Willian was the only player who was able to create chances today but even he couldn’t break the deadlock. At least we are still in the competition which is important however our fixture list is getting very chaotic as the blues are still left in three other competitions and an extra needless game isn’t going to help that. Was this the worst performance we have seen this season? #ktbffh #cfcnews #chelseanews #chelseaforthefans #chelsea #chelseafc #chelseachampions #norwich #norwichcity #premierleague #premierleaguechampions #premierleaguetitle #facup #pedro #willian #bakayoko #alvaromorata #morata #antonioconte #conte #rest #recovery #break #injury #transfer #transfers #transfernews #transferrumours
The transfer window has just begun and Chelsea are already in business as today we have signed Ross Barkley from Everton for a fee of £15 million. The midfielder has signed a five and a half year deal and will be our latest ‘number eight’. Chelsea have been pursuing Barkley’s signature for a while now and missed out on signing him on deadline day last summer for a hefty £35 million. If I’m honest, I am disappointed with this transfer as, although we can’t really go wrong with signing him for just £15 million, it seems like a quick fix problem in broadening our midfield depth and just spending money for the sake of it. Barkley hasn’t played a game all season due to an injury so I can’t see him getting into the team any time soon and I’m sure Antonio Conte will bring in a big player during the summer to compete with other clubs next season. Ross Barkley has shown some glimpses of quality in his game in the past and is still a young player so Hopefully he can prove me wrong.

Chelsea vs Stoke 5-0. The boys produced a stellar performance today and shift into second place before the end of the year. The blues knocked five past a struggling Stoke side and it seemed clear from early on who would snatch the three points as Chelsea took the lead after just three minutes with Antonio Rüdiger nodding the ball into the net after latching on to Willian's free kick. Chelsea then doubled their lead within nine minutes as Danny Drinkwater's sublime strike flew into the top corner of the goal from distance. Pedro made it three inside 23 minutes after his strike from outside the box was drilled past Jack Butland and into the bottom corner, punishing Stoke. Chelsea then took until the 73rd to add to their tally as Willian was fouled inside the box and was gifted a penalty. The Brazilian stepped up to take it himself and leathered the ball to the right of Jack Butland who dived the opposite way. The blues settled the score at five as in the 88th minute Davide Zappacosta wanted in on the action and cut in on the inside and shot from outside the box to give Chelsea their fifth and final goal. A five star performance from Chelsea despite playing without Hazard, Fabregas and Christensen and a performance that compliments our calendar year; a great way to end such a successful year. #ktbffh #cfcnews #chelseanews #chelseaforthefans #chelsea #chelseafc #chelseachampions #premierleague #premierleaguetitle #premierleaguechampions #premierleaguetrophy #stoke #stokecity #2017 #newyear #willian #zappacosta #drinkwater #dannydrinkwater #pedro #antoniorudiger #rudiger #antonioconte #conte #rest #recovery #break #injury #2018
Chelsea vs Brighton 2-0. Two headed goals from our Spaniard's today won Chelsea the game and recover two points on Manchester United. The blues created many changes today and looked as if they could have scored about four or five. Our first goal came almost imminently after half time as a familiar combination provided the first goal. Azpilicueta's lofted cross met the head of Alvaro Morata to give Chelsea the lead. In the 60th minute Alonso headed in Chelsea's second after nodding the ball in from a corner. It was refreshing to see so many chances created today but we really should have scored more and this could prove to be a problem in future games. It took us too long to break down Brighton and we need to be more clinical in front of goal. Thankfully the boys didn't panic which was what we saw last week against Everton. We move onwards now to our game against Stoke City on Saturday in our very busy Schedule and hope to close the gap on Manchester United who are just one point clear and looking unnerved. #ktbffh #cfcnews #chelseanews #chelseaforthefans #chelsea #chelseafc #chelseachampions #premierleague #premierleaguechampions #premierleaguetitle #premierleaguetrophy #brighton #brightonandhove #morata #alvaromorata #alonso #marcosalonso #azpilicueta #cesarazpilicueta #antonioconte #conte #luiz #davidluiz #manunited #manchesterunited #rest #recovery #break #injury #christmas
Merry Christmas blues to those who celebrate it and have a relaxing holiday. The boys of course have the day off today but host Brighton on Boxing Day tomorrow. We are now halfway through the season and it looks very unlikely that we will catch Manchester City so second place looks to be what is to play for. Enjoy the holiday with a Christmas cracker fixture to look forward to tomorrow, followed by Stoke city at the weekend and then a trip to north London where we face Arsenal in the new year. #chelseanews #cfcnews #ktbffh #chelseaforthefans #chelsea #chelseafc #chelseachampions #christmas #merrychristmas #happychristmas #stamfordbridge #premierleague #premierleaguetitle #christmastree #lion #rest #recovery #break #injury #antonioconte #conte #premierleaguechampions
Everton vs Chelsea 0-0. An agonising game saw Chelsea throw everything at Everton yet come away with just a point at Goodison park. From start to finish today Everton sat 10 men behind the ball and soaked up the pressure which Chelsea just couldn't break down, and fair play to them, they did exactly what they set out to do. The luck wasn't with us today and Chelsea lacked a moment of quality to penetrate them. The blues peppered the Everton defence and even almost forced an own goal from Ashley Williams whose header struck the bar. The blues accumulated twenty-five shots compared to Everton's five however the game ended goalless and the points were shared. Defending our title is out of reach now and we must fight for second place and today was the perfect day to capitalise on Arsenal, Liverpool and Manchester United all drawing. We lacked quality today, granted we missed Morata, but I expect Conte to find some quality in the January window as some of the players that played today didn't look good enough to wear the shirt... Who do Chelsea need to sign in the January transfer window? #ktbffh #chelseanews #cfcnews #chelseaforthefans #chelsea #chelseafc #everton #evertonfc #chelseachampions #alonso #marcosalonso #mancity #manchestercity #premierleague #premierleaguechampions #premierleaguetitle #transferwindow #transfermarket #transfer #transfernews #rest #recovery #injury #break #conte #antonioconte
Chelsea have drawn a familiar foe in the shape of London rivals Arsenal in the semi final of the League Cup. It will be a clash of titans with the winner progressing to play either Manchester City or Bristol City in the League cup final. There will be two legs in the tie, the first being played at Stamford Bridge on the 10th January before travelling to the Emirates on the 24th January for the second leg. Chelsea have won the League Cup five times before compared to Arsenal's two however the Gunners may have a physiological advantage as they beat us in both cup finals that we played last season (FA Cup and Community Shield). It is definitely an iconic fixture with a lot of fiery history so the boys must prepare heavily for this and leave everything on the pitch.

Chelsea vs Bournemouth 2-1. Chelsea make it into the semi finals of the League Cup after a late winner from substitute Alvaro Morata. The blues took the lead early on as some great link up play from Fabregas and Pedro created the space that Willian needed to place the ball into an open net. It looked to be an unfortunate end to the night however as Dan Gosling equalised in the 90th minute which meant that The blues would have had to play extra time and possibly penalties which would have really hindered us for our game this Saturday against Everton. Remarkably, Chelsea scored almost from Kickoff as substitute Alvaro Morata played a swift one-two with Eden Hazard and tucked the ball under Artur Boruc to rescue Chelsea from playing extra time. We now progress into the semi final and will face one of Arsenal, Manchester City or Bristol City. I really hope we can go all the way in this competition especially after we showed a lot of fight at the end of today's game which shows our hunger to continue into the next round.

Happy 32nd Birthday to Chelsea skipper Gary Cahill. The Englishman has had the arm band for over a year now after replacing John Terry and has been a very successful captain with the blues. Cahill joined the blues in 2012 after being bought from Bolton for a fee of £7 million. Since then, Gary Cahill has made 175 appearances for the club and won the FA Cup, the League Cup, the Europa League, the Champions League and the Premier League twice. This man wears his heart on his sleeve and gives the team great character on the field. Cahill is a great role-model to his teammates and wears the arm band with pride. Happy Birthday @garyjcahill #cfcnews #chelseanews #chelseaforthefans #ktbffh #chelsea #chelseafc #chelseachampions #premierleague #premierleaguetrophy #premierleaguetitle #premierleaguechampions #championsleague #facup #leaguecup #europaleague #garycahill #cahill #happybirthday #captain #leader #rest #recovery #break #injury
Chelsea vs Southampton 1-0. Chelsea fought until the final whistle today as only the one goal was enough to surpass Southampton. Chelsea almost entered the dressing room at half time goalless despite hitting the post and forcing some top saves from Fraser Forster, however in the 48th minute, Chelsea won a free kick 25 yards out which looked far too optimistic to shoot from. To our surprise, Marcos Alonso sunk the ball into the back of the net with a terrific strike to gift Chelsea the advantage. That was the only goal of the game and Chelsea won by just a goal to nil although it could have been a very different story as Southampton put the pressure on Chelsea during the end of the game with Charlie Austin coming close to equalising. We now move on to Bournemouth during the week where I'm sure the players will be tired after a tough game today. We must keep the intensity high though and be ready for when Manchester City slip up. Who was your man of the match today? #ktbffh #chelsea #chelseanews #chelseaforthefans #chelsea #chelseafc #chelseachampions #premierleague #premierleaguechampions #premierleaguetitle #manchestercity #mancity #marcosalonso #alonso #debruyne #kevindebruyne #antonioconte #conte #hazard #edenhazard #willian #rest #recovery #injury #break #bournemouth
Huddersfield vs Chelsea 1-3. A contrasting performance to last weekend from Chelsea tonight against Huddersfield which sees the blues make up some ground on the leaders. Chelsea broke the deadlock today as Willian's threaded through ball freed a surging Bakayoko who chipped the goalkeeper and gave Chelsea the lead. Two minutes before half time, Willian got himself on the scoresheet after unusually scoring a header after meeting Marcos Alonso's cross. Willian again provided the assist for Pedro's goal as in the 50th minute as the Spaniard planted the ball perfectly into the goal as Willian's flick fell to him. Unfortunately, Huddersfield clawed a goal back in the 92nd minute as Laurent Depoitre headed the ball past Courtois for their only goal of the game which flattered the home side given Chelsea dominated them today. It was a shame that we let in a goal at the end to lose our clean sheet however the important thing was that we played very well and looked a much better team to last week with more energy both going forwards and defending. Does Willian deserve a place in the starting eleven? #ktbffh #cfcnews #chelseanews #chelseaforthefans #chelsea #chelseafc #chelseachampions #premierleague #premierleaguechampions #premierleaguetitle #huddersfield #willian #pedro #hazard #edenhazard #morata #alvaromorata #conte #antonioconte #bakayoko #tiemouebakayoko #rest #recovery #break #injury
The picture just says it all... Eden Hazard has been nominated, yet again, for the Player of the month award as his performances have really impressed this month. Hazard has been in excellent form recently and has picked up a lot more confidence and looks to be enjoying himself on the pitch more. This man, for me, is priceless as I don't think that we will see another player of his quality enter the club for quite a while. In my opinion Hazard is on par with Messi, Ronaldo and Neymar at the moment and we must keep him happy and at the club for as long as possible. The Belgian has apparently been offered a contract worth £300,000 per week but has currently not yet signed it as he is waiting to see if Real Madrid show intention of signing him. He seems very happy and relaxed at Stamford Bridge so I'm sure these are just rumours but we must make sure that we try to keep this man here for as long as possible. How much do you think Eden Hazard is worth in today's market? #ktbffh #cfcnews #chelseanews #chelseaforthefans #chelsea #chelseafc #chelseachampions #edenhazard #hazard #realmadrid #madrid #potm #salah #mohamedsalah #playerofthemonth #priceless #premierleague #premierleaguetitle #premierleaguechampions #rest #recovery #break #injury @hazardeden_10
What a pairing these two have turned out to be! It seems to be a match made in heaven for the two forwards. Antonio Conte has recently been playing Hazard and Morata as a forward partnership up front and it has been working excellently so far. Eden Hazard and Alvaro Morata have looked telepathic when playing together as the forward pairing have racked up seven goals and two assists between them in their last five games when playing both together as strikers. Their play style definitely compliments each other and this looks to be one of the deadliest striker forces in the Premier League so far. How many goals will the pairing have by the end of the season? #ktbffh #cfcnews #chelseanews #chelseaforthefans #chelsea #chelseafc #chelseachampions #premierleague #premierleaguetitle #premierleaguechampions #manchestercity #mancity #antonioconte #conte #hazard #edenhazard #alvaromorata #willian #pedro #rest #recovery #break #injury @hazardeden_10 @alvaromorata
Chelsea vs Newcastle 3-1. Eden Hazard's sensational performance helps save Chelsea from dropped points today. Newcastle shocked the blues today by taking an early lead in the 12th minute after Marcos Alonso's poor touch inside our box lead to Dwight Gayle being gifted an open net opportunity. This rattled Chelsea and the blues instantly turned on the attacking play. It wasn't long before Eden Hazard had a say in the scoreline as Morata forced a strong save from Darlow which fell to the Belgian who smashed the ball into the ground and into the back of the net. Alvaro Morata gave Chelsea the lead in the 33rd minute as Victor Moses' darting cross met the head of the Spaniard who planted the ball into the goal. In the 74th minute, Chelsea were given the opportunity to double their lead from the penalty spot after Victor Moses was fouled by Matt Ritchie inside the box. Eden Hazard stepped up to take it and effortlessly chipped the keeper for his second and the Chelsea victory. This man is world class and today his class was personified. It was a joy to watch and he seems content at Stamford Bridge, which his play style is showing at the moment. We are keeping up the persistence on Manchester City and must just keep going and get into our stride. Come on Chelsea! #cfcnews #chelseanews #ktbffh #chelseaforthefans #chelsea #chelseafc #chelseachampions #premierleague #premierleaguetitle #premierleaguechampions #newcastle #hazard #edenhazard #victormoses #moses #alvaromorata #morata #pogba #degea #daviddegea #antonioconte #conte #championsleague #atleticomadrid #stamfordbridge #rest #recovery #break
Chelsea vs Swansea 1-0. Chelsea gather the three points after marginally surpassing Swansea despite their heaps of chances and possession. The blues found it difficult to break down Swansea who defended well today. Our first major concern came when Antonio Conte, of all people, was sent off and removed from the touch line after his angered remarks towards the referee. This was definitely not a good sign for Chelsea who looked as if they needed some inspiration today after struggling to pierce the Swansea defence. In the 55th minute, Chelsea got what they had deserved and managed to score after N'golo Kante's deflected shot fell into the path of Antonio Rüdiger who planted a rocket of a header into the back of the net for his first Premier league goal. Chelsea held their lead until full time and picked up the vital three points today as we aim to catch up the ground on the two Manchester clubs. It was great to see Victor Moses make a first appearance since sustaining his injury last month as he came on in the final 15 minutes of the game. Chelsea were efficient today as, although we didn't play to the best of our ability, we secured the win. Fact: Chelsea managed to rack up a total of 21 shots today compared to Swansea's two. #ktbffh #cfcnews #chelseanews #chelseaforthefans #chelsea #chelseafc #chelseachampions #premierleague #premierleaguetitle #premierleaguechampions #rudiger #ruediger #antoniorudiger #antonioconte #conte #davidluiz #luiz #victormoses #moses #swansea #manchesterunited #manchestercity #mancity #manunited #rest #recovery #injury #break
Victor Moses is back in training after completing his first full session this week. The Nigerian has been out of the game for over a month now with a hamstring injury. Antonio Conte has told the media that "Victor Moses needs time to build fitness". It is doubtful that Moses will play against Swansea tomorrow night and is more probable that he will make an appearance against Newcastle this weekend. Hopefully Moses recovers well and I hope that Conte gives him the time out that he needs because we don't want him to rush back without being fully fit and sustain another injury. #ktbffh #cfcnews #chelseanews #chelseaforthefans #chelsea #chelseafc #premierleague #premierleaguechampions #premierleaguetrophy #champions #antonioconte #conte #victormoses #moses #edenhazard #hazard #swansea #newcastle #injury #rest #recovery
Liverpool vs Chelsea 1-1. A late Willian strike salvages a deserved point for the blues at Anfield today. I wasn't confident going into this game today, especially after our long, tiring trip home from Azerbaijan during the week but today Chelsea got what they deserved at a difficult place to play. Both teams put pressure on in the first half and it took until the 65th minute for the deadlock to be broken. Bakayoko's poor control inside our box gave ex-Chelsea player Mohamed Salah the opportunity to prove himself against his old club, which he took. It seemed almost inevitable for him to score today... Antonio Conte needed a goal to claw back a point and in the 83rd minute he summoned Cesc Fabregas and Willian from the bench. Just two minutes later the two of them combined and Willian lofted a cross into the Liverpool box which looped over Simon Mignolet's head and into the goal. The game ended 1-1 which was a fair result for both teams. We played some nice football today and have got an important result away at Anfield which is definitely not an easy place to come. We must push on now and not let the compact fixture list weigh us down. Is a draw a good result for Chelsea at this moment? #ktbffh #cfcnews #chelseanews #chelseaforthefans #chelsea #chelseafc #premierleague #premierleaguechampions #salah #mohamedsalah #willian #liverpool #anfield #fabregas #cescfabregas #bakayoko #tiemouebakayoko #antonioconte #conte #davidluiz #luiz #rest #recovery #break
Qarabag vs Chelsea 0-4. Chelsea comfortably beat Qarabag tonight and have qualified for the Champions league round of 16 with a game in hand. Chelsea played very well today and have got the result we needed to progress. The blues were given a penalty kick in the 19th minute after Rasad Sadiqov brought Willian down inside the box after the Brazilian was through on goal. He was red carded for his actions which instantly gave Chelsea the advantage that would be too much for Qarabag to contain. Eden Hazard then stepped up to take the spot kick and sent the keeper the wrong way, giving Chelsea their lead. Willian then got a goal for himself in the 36th minute as Hazard and the Brazilian linked up inside the box to gift Willian his one on one opportunity with the goalkeeper, which he took. Willian was then at the heart of the third goal as he was fouled inside the box yet again and was awarded another penalty after his shirt was pulled by Maksim Medvedev. Cesc Fabregas was trusted to take the penalty this time and he scored it after drilling the ball into the bottom corner. Chelsea then solidified their dominance tonight as Willian got his second and Chelsea's fourth after his long range shot flew past the keeper and thumped the back of the net. Thankfully Chelsea have qualified for the next round with a game to spare but the top of the group still remains unknown so Chelsea still have an important game left in the group as it will determine which team we get in the next round. The boys will need to recover quickly though after their long flight home from Azerbaijan to play Liverpool on Saturday. Will Chelsea top their Champions league group? #ktbffh #cfcnews #chelseanews #chelseaforthefans #chelsea #chelseafc #chelseachampions #qarabag #championsleague #groupstage #willian #hazard #edenhazard #cescfabregas #fabregas #liverpool #rest #azerbaijan #recovery #injury
West Brom vs Chelsea 0-4. A superb team performance thrashed a struggling West Brom side as we climb into third place. Chelsea were very impressive today despite missing David Luiz who was again left out of the starting lineup for 'tactical reasons'. Chelsea took the lead in the 17th minute today after Eden Hazard fired a thunderous strike at Ben Foster who was unable to contain it and parried the ball into the path of Alvaro Morata who comfortably finished into an open net. Just six minutes later, Hazard got himself on the scoresheet after Alvaro Morata's exquisite back heel through ball gave the Belgian his opportunity which he took as he skipped around the goalkeeper and slotted the ball into an open net. Chelsea then solidified their lead as Marcos Alonso was found unmarked from a Cesc Fabregas free kick and placed the ball into the net for Chelsea's third. In the 62nd minute, Eden Hazard was able to double his tally and put Chelsea four goals to the good as his solo effort seemed unstoppable as he cut inside and belted the ball past Foster for the second time today. Chelsea flattened West Brom today which was relieving to see as this will give the boys heaps of confidence in catching the leaders. Eden Hazard seems back to his best which showed today after his refreshing performance.

Over the course of this International break Ruben Loftus-Cheek has really impressed for his national team England and is justifying why he should be brought back from his loan deal at Crystal Palace. Loftus-Cheek was a surprise selection ahead of England's November friendly matches but the midfielder has proved to be arguably England's best player in their two games against Germany and Brazil. He looked comfortable on the ball and was definitely a physical presence in the midfield despite his age and inexperience. I couldn't understand why Chelsea sent this man on loan in the first place this season as we have desperately been in need of more midfield options this season. I think that Chelsea need to bring Ruben Loftus-Cheek back to Stamford Bridge as soon as possible as he looks to have a point to prove and stood out in big games against two of the best national teams in the world which has shown great character and fortitude. Should Chelsea bring Ruben Loftus-Cheek back from loan early or is he still in need of more experience? @rubey_lcheek @ruben.lc_fanpage #cfcnews #ktbffh #chelseanews #chelseaforthefans #chelsea #chelseafc #chelseachampions #rubenloftuscheek #loftuscheek #england #brazil #germany #internationalbreak #loan #rest #recovery #crystalpalace #antonioconte #conte
Are David Luiz's days numbered at Chelsea? Following Antonio Conte leaving the Brazilian out of our huge game at the weekend against Manchester United, Conte told the media in an interview after the game that David can either "get on with the others or sit in the stands". This was extremely worrying as David is such a huge part of the dressing room and one of our best defenders and this was how the Diego Costa situation started which subsequently saw Diego leave the club over the summer. Reports say that Conte left Luiz out of the squad on Sunday due to his poor performance against Roma in midweek and then his questioning of the manager's tactical decisions. It would be such a shame to see a feud in the club like this and I think that Luiz will be given a chance to redeem himself of whatever that he has done and I'm sure that he will grasp at it as his love for this club is as big as the fans'. Despite Luiz's absence from the game on Sunday, Andreas Christensen, his replacement for the day, played brilliantly and really proved that he deserves a place in the team which will make it hard for Conte to leave him out of the next one. We have over a week now for the situation to be resolved and this could be vital in Antonio Conte keeping control of his dressing room. Should Antonio Conte give Luiz another chance in the team again? #ktbffh #cfcnews #chelseanews #chelseaforthefans #chelsea #chelseafc #chelseachampions #premierleague #premierleaguechampions #premierleaguetitle #davidluiz #luiz #antonioconte #conte #christensen #andreaschristensen #asroma #roma #championsleague #groupstage #diegocosta #costa #manchesterunited #manunited #josemourinho #internationalbreak #rest #break #recovery
Chelsea vs Manchester United 1-0. A very important win for Chelsea and Antonio Conte and a really refreshing performance. The blues played as a team today and were much improved from our midweek game in Rome. Chelsea had many chances and arguably should have comfortably won today especially after Phil Jones scored an own goal which was wrongly disallowed after Morata apparently impeded him. Chelsea did manage to break the deadlock though as Morata got his goal in the 55th minute after he headed Azpilicueta's teasing cross into the back of the net as we have seen so many times already this season. The pressure grew towards the end as Manchester United threw all men forwards looking to snatch a result but Chelsea hung on to their lead and took the three points. We won the game in midfield today as Kante, Bakayoko and Fabregas all played brilliantly and controlled the tempo of the game to our advantage. For me, Cesc was definitely our best player today as his passing was faultless at times. Chelsea definitely deserved the victory today which was pleasing but we really should have been more clinical in front of goal. This should hopefully take a little bit of weight off the players going into the international break and I can only congratulate the players today after they did themselves justice by playing as a team.

Following our 3-0 loss in Rome during midweek, Antonio Conte has been put under even more pressure to win on Sunday against Manchester United as losing again could be pivotal in his departure. Chelsea have been in poor form recently in the Champions league and have kept just four clean sheets all season. The blues have definitely not been in the form that they finished last season with, however we have many more games to play this season which is proving to be tiring on our players. It is far too early in the season to change the manager in my opinion and I would love to see Conte stay at the club for as long as possible but our defensive performances have not been good enough and he needs to help secure it. We are with him all the way though! Will tomorrow's game against title rivals Manchester United be crucial for the managerial position at the bridge? #ktbffh #cfcnews #chelseanews #chelseaforthefans #chelsea #chelseafc #chelseachampions #premierleague #premierleaguechampions #premierleaguetitle #supersunday #manchesterunited #manunited #antonioconte #conte #manager #defense #championsleague #groupstage
Roma vs Chelsea 3-0. A humiliating result which was justified by the performance. The defending tonight was woeful and Chelsea have now put themselves in a difficult position if we want to reach the next stage of the Champions league. The blues went behind after one minute played after our defence failed to deal with the long ball over the top from Roma which fell to El Shaarawy who smashed the ball into the net from distance. El Shaarawy then got his second as Rüdiger's mistake led to the Italian being given a one on one situation with Courtois and was able to comfortably score. The scoreline became embarrassing as Diego Perotti was given far too much time on the edge of our area and rifled the ball into net for Roma for the third time this evening. Chelsea are living dangerously in the Champions league and we will be lucky to get out the group. This sought of performance puts Antonio Conte's job on the line which is very daunting. Embarrassingly, I'm surprised Roma didn't score more of their chances... Will Chelsea make it out of their Champions league group? #ktbffh #cfcnews #chelseanews #chelseaforthefans #chelsea #chelseafc #asroma #roma #championsleague #groupstage #elshaarawy #perotti #antonioconte #conte #manchesterunited #manunited #hazard #edenhazard #rudiger
Bournemouth vs Chelsea 0-1. A glamorous performance sees Chelsea pick up three points against a struggling Bournemouth and keep our fourth clean sheet of the season. Chelsea produced some brilliant football to watch at times during the first half but lacked the clinical edge in front of goal. Alvaro Morata put wide some very big chances and it looked like it was going to be a day where the ball just wouldn't reach the back of the net, however in the 51st minute Chelsea got their deserved lead as Eden Hazard drilled the ball past ex-Chelsea goalkeeper Asmir Begovic with his left foot after a mistake from Simon Francis occurred. The blues only managed to score one goal past Bournemouth today however played very well and looked a lot more comfortable at the back. Eden Hazard was absolutely superb today and was the difference between the two sides; he showed so much quality on and off the ball and was able to take the game by the scruff of the neck today. The only negative that we take from this game is that we were clearly not clinical enough in front of goal. Do Chelsea look back to their usual self after this comfortable victory today? #ktbffh #cfcnews #chelseanews #chelseaforthefans #chelsea #chelseafc #chelseachampions #premierleague #premierleaguechampions #premierleaguetitle #edenhazard #hazard #nike #antonioconte #conte #bournemouth #afcbournemouth #rest #recovery #injury #best
Chelsea vs Everton 2-1. Chelsea managed to progress into the quarter finals of the Carabao cup after they surpassed Everton tonight. The blues made nine changes to their side from last Saturday's match as many youngsters were given needed game time by Antonio Conte in the likes of Ethan Ampadu and Charly Musonda. Chelsea took the lead in the cup tie after 26 minutes as Musonda's great cross was met by a towering header from Rüdiger for his first Chelsea goal. During the second half Chelsea were under a lot of pressure as Everton looked most likely to score however Chelsea doubled their lead in the 92nd minute as Willian played a mesmeric one-two pass with Cesc Fabregas to create space and then to finish prominently into the back of the net. Just two minutes later Everton finally scored a goal of their own and decreased the deficit however it was too little too late for the visitors and Chelsea progressed into the next round.

Happy birthday to Alvaro Morata who turns 25 years old today. The forward is still young and is yet to hit his prime so hopefully we can expect his form to improve over time. The Spaniard has started life well at Stamford, scoring six goals in six games already this season. Morata has become our most expensive transfer in the club's history after signing for a fee of £58 million.

Possibly our biggest setback in terms of injuries is Victor Moses as the Nigerian is expected back to full fitness in four weeks time. After sustaining a hamstring injury against Crystal Palace last weekend, Victor Moses was unavailable to play in our Champions League tie against Roma this week and was clearly missed. Moses plays such a huge part in our success and Chelsea really need to adapt after losing him to injury. This will possibly be one of our biggest misses as our squad depth just isn't big enough, especially in the wing-back role, and was not rectified during the transfer window even though it was clearly needed. Get well soon Victor Moses @victormoses Will Chelsea suffer without Victor Moses whilst he is injured? #ktbffh #chelseanews #chelseaforthefans #cfcnews #chelsea #chelseafc #chelseachampions #premierleague #premierleaguechampions #premierleaguetrophy #championsleague #championsleaguefinal #groupstage #roma #asroma #victormoses #moses #zappacosta #davidezappacosta #injury #antonioconte #conte #transfer #transfers #transfernews #transferwindow #rest #recovery
Chelsea vs Roma 3-3. A careless result sees Chelsea draw against Roma after being two goals ahead after 37 minutes. Chelsea were gifted the perfect start after eleven minutes of play as David Luiz struck a stunning strike from outside the area which flew into the net to give the blues the lead. The advantage was then doubled in the 37th minute as Eden Hazard was able to slot the ball past Alisson after he met a great cross from Alvaro Morata. Just three minutes later, Roma clawed a goal back after Kolarov made a piercing run past our defenders and finished the ball into the roof of the net. In the 57th minute David Luiz was dragged off the pitch, despite his superb performance, as he seemed to have suffered a calf injury during the game. Roma looked to capitalise on this as Edin Dzeko scored two goals in quick succession, his first being a wonderful volley in the 64th minute. He then linked up with previous goalscorer Alexander Kolarov to head the ball into the back of the Chelsea net from a free kick. Chelsea did manage to retain a point tonight as Eden Hazard was found unmarked in the penalty area and managed to head the ball into the net to equalise however there was no separation in tonight's game. Chelsea still lead the group comfortably on seven points however the boys are really turning the pressure on themselves as we have haven't won in our last three games. The defence is looking very weak and we have a mountain to climb if we want to achieve success in the Champions League and Premier league this season. There is needed improvement after today's throw away result. What do Chelsea need to do to stabilise their defensive system? #ktbffh #cfcnews #chelseanews #chelseaforthefans #chelsea #chelseafc #roma #hazard #edenhazard #davidluiz #luiz #dzeko #edindzeko #asroma #championsleague #premierleague #premierleaguechampions #groupstage #injury #rest #recovery
