Chelsea FanCast on Love Sport Radio – the only 100% Chelsea show on the radio! Matt Beadle, Stamford Chidge, Jonathan Kydd and very special guest, Chelsea legend Kerry Dixon!

We look back at the European Super Cup final against Liverpool where Chelsea went toe to toe with the European Champions only to lose on penalties. Tammy Abraham wins the equalising penalty but misses the crucial 5th in the shoot out but can he and will he bounce back? While there was no trophy, it was another good performance showing that Chelsea can compete and can only get better under Frank Lampard. Kerry gives us his view.

Lampard made the right changes after the defeat to Utd and the players improved with impressive performances from Kepa, Pulasic and Mount but the star of the show was the indomitable N’Golo Kante, but does Kerry think he can strike up an effective partnership with Jorginho and what does he think of the man scapegoated under Sarri?

In this weeks ‘Legend of the week’ sponsored by Classic Football Shirts, we choose Pat Nevin, one of the most skilful and well loved Chelsea players of all time. Who better to talk about ‘Wee Pat’ than Kerry Dixon, a man who profited massively from Nevin’s assists.

Kerry also discusses some of his favourite moments from his illustrious career; his best Chelsea players; best Chelsea managers; most difficult opponents and his hopes for Chelsea this season.

Looking back at last weekend’s opening fixture against Man Utd, should Lampard have selected older heads above eager youngsters? Should Chelsea have been more cautious? How do we address the implosions and is a lack of physicality an issue?

Leicester fan, Jake Watson, joins us on the phone for ‘Opposition View’ to discuss Chelsea’s opponents in the Premier League this Sunday. Are Leicester genuine contenders for a top 6 finish this season under Brendan Rogers? Will they regret selling Harry Maguire to Man Utd and what are their prospects against Chelsea this weekend.

Finally, we discuss the excitement of the first home match of the season; the abuse of Tammy Abraham on social media and Chelsea v Leicester this Sunday with our predictions.
