Kerry Dixon and Stamford Chidge are back for the New Year to look back at Chelsea’s matches against Norwich and Arsenal and look ahead to Chelsea v Leicester this Saturday.
Kerry reflects back on a couple of disappointing 0-0 draws to Norwich and Arsenal in the FA Cup and Carabao Cup. Do modern players have the same desire in the FA Cup as Kerry’s generation? Should Antonio Conte have played the youngsters and kept the more experienced players on the bench.
While Arsenal defended well and were organised, do Chelsea have a problem breaking teams down at the moment and if so, how does Conte address this issue?
With the arrival of Ross Barkley, will he get a start against Leicester or Norwich and how will he do. Should Chelsea buy another striker in the transfer window and would Jamie Vardy be a better bet than Andy Carroll?
And finally how will Chelsea fare against Leicester this weekend? Leicester will be no mugs sitting in 8th position, so can Chelsea expect a tough game this weekend.
