Champions Chelsea began their second home game of the season twelfth in the premier league table. They hosted Everton at Stamford Bridge, whom at kick off, were a well-deserved four places ahead of them in eighth.

Last week we witnessed Antonio Conte’s Italian job, in which Chelsea snatched all three points to make Wembley even less comfortable for Tottenham than it already was. It was a brilliant performance tactically, Conte deploying a bristling Roman testudo shield wall, with six center backs and defensive midfielders in two ranks of three each. So what would the shape and tactics be this week, against an improving Everton side?

Everton, had shown good defensive quality so far this season, conceding only one goal in their previous two games against Stoke City at home and Manchester City away. They might have had a few tired legs from their midweek trip to Hajduk Split in Croatia, but they’d been a quietly efficient side so far this season. […]

By, Navaneeth Ravichandran (Twitter: @navrav28) It wasn’t the worst group Chelsea could have found itself in, but it certainly wasn’t the easiest. The Champions League draw was held in Monaco on Thursday, and with it saw the Blues drawn into Group C along with Spanish behemoth Athletico Madrid, Italian giant AS Roma, and Azerbaijan champions […]

By, Ayodeji Itasanmi (Twitter: @aryhorblueblood)   Stamford Bridge/August 27, 2017   The big matches keep coming for Chelsea. After our sweet victory over Spurs last Sunday (it was my personal favourite), Roland Koeman brings his Everton team to Stamford Bridge for what is going to be another explosive encounter. This match did not play out […]

It was the perfect storm. The premier league champions had lost their first game of the season to Burnley FC, who’d barely avoided relegation last season. They also had four starters out to suspension and injury, and their next game was an away derby against Tottenham. Their manager had signed a new contract on increased wages, but ominously, no extension.

Ex-Chelsea players Romelu Lukaku, Nemanja Matic, Kevin de Bruyne and Mo Salah were showing themselves to be among the best players in their respective positions in the premier league – playing for Chelsea’s title rivals.

And want-away striker Diego Costa sat above the entire dismal mess, firing furious demands and accusations at his club from a distance, like thunderbolts from some angry Azteca god. […]

By, Barnabas Gwaza (Twitter: @BarnabasTGS) Two games into the season and if you let the chatter tell it, we’ve already been relegated and we’ve now won the league. However while the pandemonium over the Burnley loss last weekend was an over the top reaction, one would be forgiven for being over the moon today as […]

By, Ayodeji Itasanmi (Twitter: @aryhorblueblood) Wembley Stadium/August 20, 2017   This fixture could not have come at a more inconvenient time than the present with all that is going on within and around the club. I’m sure the Tottenham players and fans will already be licking their lips in anticipation of what for them could […]

By, Jordan Harbin And let the apocalypse commence… The ash and brimstone riddled black sky falling down around our heads leaves me quietly rummaging through the rubble of what once was Chelsea Football Club and the glory that emanated from it’s empire. Whether it’s the sweaty, quivering palm of Donald Trump resting on the shiny […]
