Kerry Dixon and Stamford Chidge look back at the highly impressive wins for Chelsea in the Champions League against Atletico Madrid and Premier League against Stoke and look forward to this weekends match against Man City.
Kerry applauds one of the best European nights and performances by Chelsea since 2012 where we tactically out thought and outplayed one of the top sides in Europe. Eden Hazard was the star of the show with a world class display but it was a great team performance. Does Kerry think this has laid down a marker for Chelsea in Europe this season?
With a hat-trick against Stoke City last weekend, Alvaro Morata has certainly laid down a marker and Chidge and Kerry discuss the comparisons already being made to Chelsea legend Peter Osgood. Kerry still believes that Morata needs to do it in the big games before his greatness can be assured.
Talking of big games, Kerry and Chidge look forward to this weekends match against Man City. Who will Conte pick in a defence that will be tested by City’s much vaunted attack? Is the key battle how we shut them out and can we exploit the weaknesses in their defence? What are Kerry and Chidge’s predictions for the match?
