Predictions

Chelsea have been in great form ever since Thomas Tuchel took over the reins last year in December. They have an impenetrable defense and have added more firepower to their lineup with the signing of goals scorer Romelu Lukaku this season, who has already had a great impact on the side. We expect the Blues to come out with all 3 points from this fixture.
