Predicting Chelsea’s next five games

We take a close look at Chelsea’s Premier League matches against Stoke City, Queens Park Rangers, Manchester United, Arsenal and Leicester City.

Chelsea v Stoke City

Stoke City have proven to be tough opponents this season, and one should not expect them to just roll over against Chelsea at Stamford Bridge.

However, the Blues will still be favourites to win against the Potters, but they could be given a run for their money.

Prediction: 2-0

Queens Park Rangers v Chelsea

Queens Park Rangers are one of the top candidates to suffer relegation from the Premier League at the end of the season, and they are unlikely to pose much of a challenge for the Blues.

Anything other than a big win for Jose Mourinho’s side in the London derby at Loftus Road will come as a surprise.

Prediction: 0-3

Chelsea v Manchester United

Chelsea are very strong at home, and manager Mourinho will make sure that his players do not slip up at Stamford Bridge.

The Blues have shown vulnerability in recent weeks, but Mourinho’s players are tactically more responsive than Van Gaal’s men.

This game does not promise to produce entertaining end-to-end football, and one suspects that a single goal could decide the outcome.

Prediction: 1-0

Arsenal v Chelsea

Arsenal have stepped up against the best teams in the Premier League this season, and they will need to do so against Chelsea.

The Gunners cannot afford to slip up in the race for a top-four finish, and they should be looking to take advantage of the Blues’ recent dip in performance.

However, Chelsea boss Mourinho knows how to win matches like this, and one can be certain that he will make sure that his team do not lose.

Prediction: 2-2

Leicester City v Chelsea

Chelsea should be able to get the better of Leicester City at the King Power Stadium with little or no trouble.

Prediction: 0-4
