A Nightmare Fixture List Is On The Horizon For Chelsea

A Nightmare Fixture List Is On The Horizon For Chelsea

Having failed to the Carabao Cup final and producing a fairly limp defence of their Premier League title, Chelsea aren't in the best position at the moment.

And to make matters worse, Antonio Conte's side have a slew of tough fixtures coming their way. Their set of games for February and March is very, very difficult.

While their next four games should all be routine wins, given they are coming up against Newcastle, Bournemouth, Watford and West Brom, things get very tricky from then on.

Chelsea will face Barcelona for the first leg at Stamford Bridge on the 20th February before visiting Old Trafford to play Manchester United in the Premier League on the 25th February.

The week after the champions travel to Pep Guardiola's runaway leaders Manchester City before a slight reprieve with the visit of Crystal Palace to Stamford Bridge before a daunting trip to the Camp Nou for the second leg of their tie with Lionel Messi and co.

Then comes a game against Sean Dyche's high-flying Burnley side at Turf Moor on March 17, with a visit of Spurs following on 1st April.

Following Chelsea's poor run of form, a relatively comfortable run of games is exactly the Blues would have wanted to ease pressure on their team and manager.

Chelsea, what would have been without the cash?

But clearly they are not going to be getting it, with a whole host of big games coming thick and fast for the Premier League champions.

It's no wonder that Conte desperately wants reinforcements and is constantly taking shots at the Chelsea board in his press conferences.
