Chelsea FanCast on Love Sport Radio – the only 100% Chelsea show on the radio! Stamford Chidge, Clayton Beerman and Jonathan Kydd join Aaron Paul to look back at the 2-2 draw with Mol Vidi in Hungary, last week’s superb 2-0 win against Man City and look ahead to this weekend’s match against Brighton & Hove Albion.
In a somewhat meaningless 2-2 draw against Mol Vidi, at least some of the youth got a run out, but why were Chelsea going through the motions?
And with Morata going off injured, will it hamper a potential transfer and will we need a replacement? We also discuss the fall out from the anti-Semitic chant heard during the match and where Chelsea and the supporters go from here.
Looking at the fantastic 2-0 win against Man City, something which none of us expected we ask do the players just raise their game for a big match and why can’t they bring this mentality, energy, determination and commitment every week? With such a massive statement by Chelsea, is this a vindication for Sarri and proof that he does have a Plan B? And with a superb atmosphere, it was a timely reminder of what football is about; suffering the lows to enjoy the highs.
With Chelsea facing Brighton in Sussex-by-the Sea on Sunday, we beat them 4-0 last time out, but Brighton may not be push overs this season. We ponder what will Sarri’s starting XI be and will he go for Giroud up front or Hazard?
Ady Packham from Albion Roar joins us on the phone for the ‘Opposition View’ and discusses Chris Hughton’s management; Glen Murray’s goal scoring; Brighton’s impressive home form and which players will cause Chelsea problems.
To wrap up we reveal the answers to this week’s quiz – name the Chelsea players who have double barreled or hyphenated surnames. And finally, we reveal our predictions for the match.
Plus, of course your calls to the show.
