Jan Pikous, Football Writer for EuroFotbal.cz joins us on the phone to talk about the Slavia Prague match from a Czech perspective, as Jan was at the game. Slavia played well just as Jan predicted this week but are Slavia feeling confident for the 2nd leg? Sarri felt that Chelsea showed some fight, but was it more down to bringing on Hazard and Kante? And while it was a disappointing performance from Chelsea 1-0 away win is not a bad result in Europe.
Discussing the Europa League match, Chelsea’s ‘b’ team is not as good as the A Team and Chelsea still seem susceptible to pressing, physicality and sloppiness. Will Sarri rue having to bring Hazard, Kante & RLC on? And what about the joy of the ultimate ‘troll’ goal created by Willian and scored by Alonso.
Looking back at the win against West Ham we discuss Hazard’s performance and possibly the goal of the season? But is Hazard on his way to Real Madrid and does he go with our blessing?
Chelsea face Liverpool this weekend, with Jurgen Klopp’s team hunting down a first league title in 29 years. Some might say that the fate of the civilised football world rests on Chelsea’s shoulders this weekend! However, are Liverpool having a wobble in recent form?Can Chelsea be party poopers again? Will Sarri pick the right side and how can Chelsea beat Liverpool on Sunday?
We get the Liverpool perspective from Daniel Moxon from The Kopite in ‘Opposition View and ask him how desperate are Liverpool to win the title? Are the fans worried that they might choke again? Does Chelsea’s good record at Anfield recently worry Liverpool fans? If Liverpool beat Chelsea, is the title in the bag and who will the key players for Chelsea and Liverpool be? Finally how does Daniel see it going and what’s his score prediction?
We wrap up by discussing how we see Liverpool v Chelsea going and give our match predictions as well as the answers to the Chelsea FanCast quiz: How many Chelsea players have played for Liverpool?
