Stamford Chidge is joined by Chelsea Legend Kerry Dixon to look back on the disappointing draw against Huddersfield and look ahead to the last league match of the season against Newcastle.
Chidge and Kerry ask why did Antonio Conte make 6 changes to the team that played so well in beating Liverpool? Against Liverpool the 3:5:2 worked; Bakayoko, Cahill, Moses looked good and with Giroud on form surely they didn;t need a rest.
Why do we find it hard to break down stubborn teams like Huddersfield? Is it our inability to finish that has cost us again or is it squad depth? Has Kerry seen a more bizarre goal than Alonso’s.
Although Conte has said that the decision on his future will be made after the FA Cup final, did he shoot himself in the foot against Huddersfield and will he go even if he makes top 4 and wins FA Cup
With the draw against Huddersfield being a massive disappointment having had our hopes raised after beating Liverpool, should the traditional ‘lap of appreciation’ after the last home game been held after the Liverpool match on Sunday when more supporters would have stayed?
Looking ahead to the Newcastle game, is it now mission impossible, but we beat Newcastle and can Brighton beat Liverpool? Will Conte play his best team and will they go for it in the hope that Brighton beat Liverpool.
But with Chelsea dropping 20 points at home this season and failing to beat teams they would usually beat, do they really deserve to finish in the top four?
