to the new EPL season Chelsea fans are thinking about one interesting
peculiarity. 3 years in a row the team of Roman Abramovich is
playing its opening match of the calendar championship at Stamford
Chelsea – Swansea – 2:2 (Oscar, F. Fernández (own goal) – A.
Chelsea – West Ham – 2:1 (Azar, Diego Costa – Collins);
that, in the first case after the draw with Swansea and due to the
conflict between José Mourinho and the physician Eva Carneiro the
blues have lost the whole season. And in the second case after the
winning over West
Ham the team became the champion.
(the head coach Antonio Conte)
completed transfers of the center forward of Real Álvaro Morata,
holding midfielder of Monaco Tiemoué Bakayoko and the center back of
Roma Antonio Rüdiger, Chelsea had switched on the right winger of
Roman Lazio and the national team of Italy Antonio Candreva.
Conte for a long time already wanted to get his namesake at Stamford
Bridge. And, at last, his dream is going to come true. According to
the coach, Candreva will substitute Pedro at the right-wing attack
line because he has screwed over his team so terribly during Sunday
match against Arsenal that he is raising only a red flag.
(the head coach Sean Dyche)
first opponent of Chelsea this new season will be English Clarets.
This is how the team of Sean Dyche is called due to its colors. Last
season Burnley has taken only 16th
position – 40 points (+11=7-20) and 10 its winnings out of 11 the
team has won at home arena. But outside its Turf Moor the Clarets are
rather weak opponents and that is why they are losing to one and all.
match of the current opponents last season that was held at Stamford
Bridge ended with the home winning of Chelsea with the score 3:0. The
goals were scored by Eden Hazard, Willian and Victor Moses. Bearing
in mind absolutely different level and game class of the teams of
Antonio Conte and Sean Dyche much the same result according to
experts is possible this time.
