Chelsea FanCast on Love Sport Radio – the only 100% Chelsea show on the radio! Jonathan Kydd and Clayton Beerman join Aaron Paul to look back at Chelsea’s defeat to Spurs and the win against Nottingham Forest and look forward to this weekend’s match against Newcastle.

Liam Twomey, Chelsea correspondent for ESPN joins us by phone to report on Friday’s Press Conference with and discusses the latest rumours.

Chelsea’s performance against Spurs in the first leg of the Carabao Cup Semi was much improved but the lack of an effective striker hampered us yet again. But was Kane offside and is VAR questionable? How is the tie poised; can we overturn the 1-0?

Hudson-Odoi impressed in Chelsea’s 2-0 victory against Nottingham Forest in the FA Cup 3rd round tie. Morata scores 2 goals but he’s not happy and we said farewell to Fabregas.

Looking at the Transfer Window we have so many questions but few answers; is Hudson-Odoi off? Is Morata off? Is Willian off? Why is Batshuayi returning? Are we signing Higuain, Icardi, or Wilson??? And what about Barello or Paredes? More to the point what do we really need and will we get it. Will/can the Board deliver and is there an issue between Marina & Sarri?

Looking ahead to given our poor goal scoring form will this be tough match? Will they aim to kick Hazard out of the match and do we still hate Rafa.

In this week’s ‘Opposition View’ we have former Newcastle player, Mick Martin, joining us on the phone. We discuss with Newcastle unlucky in August, will Rafa park the bus & hope to mug Chelsea? With Newcastle flirting with relegation again, will they survive?Are Rondon & Perez the main threat to Chelsea? How is the Ashley v Rafa saga panning out – will Rafa stay; will Ashley sell?

To wrap up we answer this week’s Quiz on which players played for both Chelsea and Newcastle, before giving our predictions for the Chelsea v Newcastle match. Plus, of course your calls to the show.
