International Round Up:

The last international break of 2021 comes to an end with Chelsea players again in action all across the globe.

There were goals, clean sheets, qualifications and debuts for numerous players. The last of the internationals sees Chelsea players rested which has to be good news for Thomas Tuchel.


Three Points at the King Power:

Another popular away trip and another 12:30 kick-off, which perhaps didn’t please the fans travelling to the midlands.


Chelsea fans are always on good form and The Counting House on Saturday morning was no exception, although I feel that Morrisons did a good trade in alcohol.


Eager to put the disappointing 1-1 draw with Burnley behind them, Chelsea came out of the blocks flying as Antonio Rüdiger broke the deadlock with a towering header.

This was the 13th goal scored by a defender in the Premier League. Chelsea, with a boisterous backing, stayed in control and added to the goals with one from N’Golo Kanté and substitute Christian Pulisic.


This was a real statement to the Premier League, emphasising that Chelsea are a force in this season’s title race.


Old Lady at Home:

The game earlier in the season was a disappointing 1-0 defeat in Turin. This fixture however will decide who tops the group, with the Italians looking to keeping their 100% record intact. This will be the sixth game between the two sides with Chelsea yet to lose against Juventus at home.


Manchester United Blockbuster:

The big week ends with a huge game at Stamford Bridge against Manchester United. This will be the 190th game between the two sides and Chelsea will be looking for their 55th win.


Last season both games finished 0-0, so both sides will be looking for a goal and three very important points. The game will have a new United manager in the dugout as after the defeat to Watford Ole’s time at the wheel has ended.
