Malmö FF at Home:

In what was another wet night at Stamford Bridge, Chelsea ran out comfortable winners against Swedish champions Malmö in a comfortable 4-0 victory.


At no point in the game did the Blues under any slight pressure as they controlled the game throughout.


In fact, after Andreas Christensen scored his first goal in 137 attempts, the home side pushed for more, which resulted in Jorginho putting away two penalties and a silky finish from Kai Havertz.


The only negative of the game was losing both Romelu Lukaku and Timo Werner through injury.

Canaries Blown Away at The Bridge:

Chelsea welcomed bottom placed Norwich to the Bridge for the early kick-off on Saturday.

Before the game, Chelsea held a minutes’ applause before kick-off to remember Matthew Harding who tragically lost his life in October 1996. The game was top versus bottom, and it turned out that way as Chelsea ran riot against the Canaries by scoring seven without reply.


This was the 18th time that Chelsea have scored six or more goals in a Premier League match, which is a competition record. Mason Mount helped himself to a hat trick whilst Ben Chilwell continued his purple patch in front of goal.


The other goals came from Callum Hudson-Odoi, Reece James and a Max Aarons own goal.

Cup Tie Against the Saints:

The next round of the League Cup sees Chelsea entertain Southampton at Stamford Bridge. This will give both managers the opportunity to give squad players much needed match time.

It will be the 110th game between the two sides with Chelsea looking to get win number 48 and progress to the next round.


A Trip to St. James’:

A Chelsea fan favourite is up next as Tuchel’s travel to St James’ Park for yet another 3pm kick-off.


Newcastle, fresh from the big money takeover, will be looking for a home win.

However, Chelsea, who completed the double over the Toon Army last season, will be looking for away win to improve their poor record of just 23 wins in 84 games.
