Chelsea FanCast on Love Sport Radio – the only 100% Chelsea show on the radio! Stamford Chidge, Dan Silver and Jonathan Kydd join Aaron Paul to look back at the match against Bournemouth and the win against Brighton & Hove Albion and look forward to match.

In a pulsating Carabao Cup quarter-final against Bournemouth, Ruben Loftus-Cheek continued his improvement with a Man of the Match performance while Eden Hazard came to the rescue once again. And while Chelsea lacked a cutting edge, did Callum Wilson fail his audition?

With Chelsea reaching their 34th semi final since 1994 and with Sarri taking the Carabao Cup seriously is a semi-final revenge v Spurs in the air?

In the win against Brighton, Hazard again proved how indispensable & vital he is for Chelsea but will he be kicked out of the PL? Will Sarri keep the False 9 and what’s the future for Giroud and Morata? Are replacements such as Isco, Icardi, Wilson on their way??

As the year draws to a close we look back at some of the best and worst moments for Chelsea this year and discuss our hopes for 2019.

Leicester are Chelsea’s next opponents and have a solid defence conceding over 2 goals only twice this season while Vardy always poses a threat up front. Will their counter attacks and balls over the top cause problems for Chelsea and will Sarri make changes?

Former Leicester Captain, Steve Walsh, joins us for the ‘Opposition View’ and we ask him if 12th in the league is disappointing or is it where he expects Leicester to be? Are the fans happy with Claude Puel? How is the club & fans recovering from tragedy of the owner’s death?

We discuss where ‘And Leicester comes from in the “We all follow the Chelsea” song and answer this week’s Quiz on which players played for both Chelsea and Leicester, before giving our predictions for the Chelsea v Leicester match. Plus, of course your calls to the show.
