Just after the very first couple of games, a lot of critics are writing Chelsea off currently. Ok, so we lost to Manchester United on the opening day, and we let Sheffield United back into the game not too long ago and dropped two points, but is it all definitely that poor? 

We’ve got a League Cup game coming up that should really give Lampard the likelihood to showcase young talent and get a morale-boosting win. We’re about 12/1 to win the competitors if you fancy a bet. A lot of punters take pleasure in watching sports reside streams when betting, but the major English competitions do not have a tendency to be out there due to licensing regulations, so you will have to listen to this one particular on the radio.

Though there appears to be a bit of doom and gloom about the location amongst some fans, there are also a fair couple of complete of optimism. Just how far can we go this season? 

The Lampard Impact

There’s no doubt that it will take time for Frank to place his personal stamp on the side, but we’re swiftly seeing that it could come collectively sooner rather than later. His hands are tied as far as new signings are concerned with the existing ban, which has permitted him to utilise the youngsters.

Frank Lampard

A couple of fans do not appreciate what we have going on right here this season. The children are flourishing, and it is excellent to see. Just appear at Mason Mount and Tammy Abraham. They’ve began the season definitely nicely, and lengthy could it continue.

The Champions League draw has thrown up a group that is fairly difficult in all honesty, but we have a squad large sufficient to cope with the European demands. Specially with young players finding a likelihood. We could even go far in the competitors this season. Watch this space.

Have Chelsea Began Badly?

In a word, no. We’ve lost one particular game. These issues take time. Give Frank a likelihood to get his players playing the way he desires. The final results will quickly come. We’re not going to be difficult City or Liverpool, we all knew that ahead of the season even started, but third is undoubtedly not out of attain.

Appear at Spurs. They lost 1- at household to Newcastle, but critics appear to concentrate additional on Chelsea drawing two-two against new boys Sheffield United. They had two shots on target. Nevertheless, it was a lesson discovered. We move on.

Even if you appear at the four- loss to United, we had 18 shots on target to their 11 and additional possession. The outcome flattered them somewhat. Anybody who’s noticed us play the very first couple of fixtures will know that there’s sufficient there to mount a significant major 4 challenge this season. No pun intended there with mount, but he’s had a excellent begin to the season, hasn’t he? Mason Mount is going to have a excellent 2019/20 campaign. His England get in touch with-up was deserved.

Subsequent Six Premier League Fixtures

It is Wolves, Liverpool, Brighton, Southampton, Newcastle, and Burnley up subsequent for the Blues. Bar Liverpool, we could win 5 of these. Wolves will not be simple, but they’ve got a couple of players creating lengthy International trips, which could perform in our favour.

Liverpool at household will not be simple at all, but we’re additional than sufficient for any side at household on our day. If we want to realise our ambitions this season, it requires to be nine points from nine against Southampton, Newcastle, and Sean Dyche’s males realistically.

There’s no point predicting something soon after only a couple of games. Unless you are predicting a City and Liverpool one particular two. That will almost certainly come about once more as it did final season. But in terms of the rest of the major six, it is also early to say, but what we will say is that Chelsea will be appropriate up there come the finish of the season.

We have a lengthy, tough season ahead of us, with European competitors placing a strain on the squad, but it is large sufficient to cope. With the young guns becoming provided a likelihood to thrive below Frank Lampard, nothing at all is not possible.

Ok, so we could not win the league and we’ll almost certainly bow out of the Champions League at some point in the latter stages, but would a League Cup or an FA Cup win and major 4 be a poor season? No. Let’s take pleasure in the ride!
