While it’s a good thing for a club as big as Chelsea to go on long unbeaten runs, it […]

By, Ayodeji Itasanmi (Twitter: @aryhorblueblood) Stamford Bridge/January 17, 2017 Chelsea has been involved in a further two goalless draws since that uninspiring afternoon in Norfolk and Norwich City has traveled to Bristol City in the Championship and came back with all three points.

By, Ayodeji Itasanmi (Twitter: @aryhorblueblood)     Emirates Stadium/January 3, 2017 Happy New Year Folks! 2017 couldn’t have ended on a sweeter note for anybody associated with Chelsea Football Club than with a sweet 5-0 victory over an unusually subdued Stoke City side but as is customary in the Premier League, especially during the festive […]
