Thrashing the Old Lady:

What a performance.

The Old Lady of football were completely outclassed by the young pretenders from Stamford Bridge. This was Thomas Tuchel’s 50th game in charge of Chelsea and I think most people will agree that this was a complete performance. It was the German’s 32nd win and 31st clean sheet.

The goals were converted by Trevoh Chalobah, Reece James, Callum Hudson-Odi and Timo Werner.

This should mean that Chelsea will win the group with their final game set to be played against Zenit in Russia on December 8th.

A Tie with the Devils:

On a cold Sunday afternoon Chelsea were superior to a poor Manchester United in every way except the score line.

The London club had the majority of the possession and created numerous chances, but had to rely on a Jorghino penalty to rescue a point after his error that gave Jadon Sancho his gifted goal earlier on in the second half.

A much more clinical performance is needed later in the week.

Ranieri Reunion:

Another mid-week away game as the fixtures mount in December, with Chelsea making the short trip to Vicarage Road to face Claudio Ranieri’s Watford.

The Italian failed to win a trophy at Chelsea but was certainly a popular manager during his spell with the club.

The last time that Chelsea made the trip was November 2019, which resulted in a 2-1 win.

Chelsea have won 16 of the 30 league games against Watford and they will be keen to add another victory to their relatively decent record.

Hammers Away:

It’s another away day in London for the early kick off on Saturday 4th December, as Tuchel’s side face David Moyes’ West Ham at the London Stadium.

Last season saw the Blues win a tight game 1-0 with the only goal coming from Timo Werner.

This year West Ham have continued well under David Moyes and will be eager to get revenge on the Blues.
