Shoot-Out Victory in the League Cup:

Another home draw, another all-Premier League tie, and another penalty shoot-out.

Heading into the game, Chelsea once again made numerous changes, as did the Saints who were backed by a decent support.


The hosts took the lead just before half-time with a goal from Kai Havertz. However, just minutes into the second half Chelsea conceded an equalizer to the hands of Ché Adams.


The game went to penalties and after Mason Mount had his kick saved, it was left to Reece James to win it - and he did exactly that.

The draw for the next round of the League Cup was made before the Newcastle game, with Chelsea heading off to Brentford the week before Christmas in the last eight of the competition.

Another Victory in the North-East:

The game at St. James Park was hugely frustrating until Reece James decided to make the game his own in the 64thminute.

The defender scored with two wonder strikes before Jorginho added a third from the penalty spot with just under 10 minutes to spare.

This increased the Blue’s’ lead at the top of the table as both Liverpool and Manchester United both dropped points at home.

A Trip to Malmö:

The Champions of Europe are back on their travels with a trip to Sweden.


With just over 1000 fans in the stadium it won’t quite be the same as February 2019 where goals from both Ross Barkley and Olivier Giroud gave Chelsea a win on their way to Europa League glory.

The Clarets at Home:

Chelsea then return back to league action with a game against Burnley on Saturday. The fixture will be the last for a fortnight, with another international break then set to follow.


This will be the 93rd league game against Burnley and surprisingly, we have lost more than we won – (36 Chelsea wins to 37 from Burnley).


Thomas Tuchel’s side will be looking for a repeat of the 2-0 win at home last season with goals from César Azpilicueta and Marcos Alonso.
