Draw at Old Trafford:

It has always been said that the best time to play Chelsea is when you are struggling for form as the Blues have a reputation of being a charity.


United entered the game on an awful run of form, with supporters even were protesting against the ownership of the club. On the other hand, Chelsea had won their previous eight away games in a row, meaning proceedings should have been relatively straight forward at the Thearte of Dreams.


The Blues were dominant in the game but just couldn’t score. Tuchel’s side took the lead on the hour mark through Marcos Alonso, but two minutes later Cristiano Ronaldo saved United once again.

It was certainly two more points missed out on in a topsy-turvy season that has seen too many points dropped and missed opportunities against sides that Chelsea should be beating.

Defeat in Lampard Reunion:

Sunday’s game saw a trip to Frank Lampard’s relegation threatened Everton, who entered the game five points from safety. The Toffees are a team renowned for raising their game and attitude against Chelsea, with yesterday’s affair no exception.


It was a real battle between the two teams but not a great deal of the Chelsea players seemed up for the occasion. There were bookings galore in the match, which summarised a heated affair between the two teams.


However, less than two minutes into the second half, Richarlison made it 1-0 as the Blues were victim to another defensive error.


Even though Jordan Pickford made two season-saving saves later in the half, Chelsea never looked like scoring or getting a point from the match.

Frank Lampard will hope that this performance is repeated in the final few games of the season.

Wolves at the Bridge:

After two away games Chelsea return to the Bridge for a home game against Wolves.

The previous match earlier this season was a dour 0-0 draw. The fixture for older Chelsea fans will always mean something as it marked the first time that Chelsea were crowned champions of England, which came after a 1-0 home victory against Wolves in 1955.
