Malmo 1 vs. 2 Chelsea Europa League Round of 32 1st Leg Review

First away win and first away goals of 2019! When the lineup was released for the game Chelsea fans all over the world cried out that Sarri was digging a hole for himself. Kepa started alongside Azpi, Luiz, Christensen, and Emerson at the back, this selection came as no surprise. Jorginho, Kovacic, and Barkley started in the midfield although I would have liked to see … Continue reading Malmo 1 vs. 2 Chelsea Europa League Round of 32 1st Leg Review

Mol Vidi FC 2 vs. 2 Chelsea Europa League MD 6 Group Stage Review

A glorified training match with no real consequence for Chelsea. With progression and position done and dusted for Chelsea their was nothing to lose in this game as Sarri selected a totally changed lineup.

Fabregas, Barkley and Loftus-Cheek made up the midfield while Willian, Morata, and Hudson-Odoi made up the attack. … Continue reading Mol Vidi FC 2 vs. 2 Chelsea Europa League MD 6 Group Stage Review

Chelsea 4 vs. 0 PAOK Europa League Group Stage Review

A good performance by all involved. Chelsea had already secured the top spot in their group before kick-off as Bate had beat Videoton and so there was much less on the line as the game began, but the players needed to respond after their loss to Tottenham and they did in an brilliant way. The predicted lineup was fairly similar to the one Sarri put … Continue reading Chelsea 4 vs. 0 PAOK Europa League Group Stage Review

Chelsea vs. PAOK Europa League Group Stage Preview

Need a great performance. Tottenham dealt Chelsea their first defeat of the season at the weekend as Chelsea looked second best for the entirety of the game. The game against PAOK could not come at a better time as it should give the starters and bench players a chance to bounce back at home and gain some momentum going into the festive period. Chelsea have … Continue reading Chelsea vs. PAOK Europa League Group Stage Preview

Bate Borisov 0 vs. 1 Chelsea Europa League Group Stage Review

Our worst performance this season but we got the job done. In what was perhaps one of the poorer performances of the season Chelsea managed to add another three points to their Europa League tally in Minsk. Chelsea might have dominated possession but we registered no shots on target in the first half and it took a headed goal by Giroud in the 52nd minute … Continue reading Bate Borisov 0 vs. 1 Chelsea Europa League Group Stage Review

Bate Borisov vs. Chelsea Europa League Group Stage Preview

Time to qualify for the next round.  Chelsea play Bate in Minsk on Thursday as they look to qualify for the next round of the Europa League ahead of schedule. The game should pretty much be similar to the rest of the Europa League and Cup games as fringe players and youth players should be given a chance to shine.  Bate played well in the … Continue reading Bate Borisov vs. Chelsea Europa League Group Stage Preview
