Stamford Chidge and Kerry Dixon discuss whether Chelsea’s 3-0 win against West Brom will lift the pressure on Antonio Conte. With two superb goals by Eden Hazard what do we have to do to keep him at the club and with an impressive debut from Olivier Giorud, will he put pressure on Alvaro Morata and could the two play together upfront?
With one eye on Barcelona inevitably changes will be made against Hull City, but Kerry believes the most intriguing selection dilemma will be whether Giroud or Morata starts up front. Chelsea should beat Hull comfortably whoever makes the team, but Chidge reminds Kerry of the last time Hull beat Chelsea, in 1988 when Kerry was playing.
Both Kerry and Chidge are excited by the visit of Barcelona on Tuesday and while Chelsea are the underdogs there is no reason why they can’t get a result. The key is to be in the tie after the first leg. Preventing Messi and Suarez from scoring might be a big ask, but Kerry believes if Hazard is on form and the others raise their game, we can cause Barcelona problems too. It’s all set up for an intriguing tie.
