So far so good, for the performance the Blues have performed in our last 2 matches in October, a win against an tough away opposition, Steaua Bucharest, 4-0 and another away win against Norwich, 3-1. And now as the International Break, it’s time to see how the Blues will perform the remaining 4 matches left.
Chelsea vs Cardiff City
This will be an important match for the Blues as they look to continue their impressive form after the International break with a win at home to Cardiff. A win could even possibly put the Blues back on top, depending on results from elsewhere, but a win is crucial as we return to Premier league in about 6 days. Cardiff will be a tough opposition as they were able to pull up a surprise win against Man City thanks to 2 header corners from Campbell. I predict a 3-0 win for us.
Schalke vs Chelsea
Facing the team who is currently in 1st place in our group, this is going to be a tricky match for the Blues, not only will Schalke be hard but playing away comes into factor. We have scouted their best young talent player, Julian Draxler, who in fact was the player to score that screamer against Basel few weeks ago which put Schalke on top of the group. This will be , once again, an important match for us as a win would put Blues top of the group, if the goal difference at the end of the match is at least 2 or more. A 3-1 or 2-0 score will be enough for us to regain 1st place.
Chelsea vs Manchester City
This just doesn’t stop at Germany , does it? Another big match clash between two title contenders, it will be a return to the Bridge after our crucial champions league match. The last time Chelsea beat Man city at Stamford Bridge, was in 2011, after Chelsea conceded an early goal from Balotelli, Meireles fired Chelsea to the equalizer. With 10 minutes remaining, Chelsea earned a penalty from which Lampard scored to give us a 2-1 win. A win after 2 years, will put us in a more commanding position and also we can build up a lead against the club. I predict a close 2-1 win.
Arsenal vs Chelsea
The last match to end a streak of 3 tough matches in a row, comes Arsenal, who we last time faced in the Carling Cup final in 2007 with Chelsea winning 2-1 thanks to a brace from Drogba. Chelsea look to continue their run in the Capital One Cup after beating Swindon in the 3rd round, 2-0, with an inspired performance from Torres. Another tough match, i predict a tough 1-0 win for the Blues.
So what do you think? Which match is the most important and hardest match of all?
