Since the start of the 2022/23 season, Chelsea has been the team with the most drama off the field, as they’re in the headlines every other day. From the change of ownership to a change of manager, Chelsea fans didn’t see any stability in their club this season.
After the Ukraine-Russia saga, the Russian owner had to sell the club, and American businessman Todd Boehly took over the charge. They sacked Thomas Tuchel after a few poor results and appointed his country fellow Brighton Manager Graham Potter, who was doing wonders with Brighton.
Chelsea has a record amount spent on signing but has not achieved the results since appointing Graham Potter; they’ve won nine games in 25 matches in all competitions. That said, they currently sit 10th at the table with 31 points in 23 games, winning 8, drawing 7, and losing 8. Following is the list of some much-awaited fixtures involving them in the remainder of the 2022/23 season:
Tottenham vs Chelsea (February 26, 2023):
Talking about Chelsea first, they’d like to make this game a turning point for them by recording a win against a good team after winning just nine out of the previous 25 games. They currently sit 10th at the table with 31 points in 23 games, winning 8, drawing 7, and losing 8.
Against them is Tottenham Hotspurs, who is finally showing some stability and constantly good results. Although Conte has talked about more improvement, they’re doing well. They sit 4th at the table with 42 points in 24 games, winning 13, drawing 3, and losing 8. Despite Chelsea’s poor run of form, they possess a lot of threat, and Spurs would like to secure points in this heavyweight fixture.
Chelsea vs Liverpool (April 5, 2023):
Chelsea vs Liverpool is one of the best fixtures in the remainder 2022/23 premier league season. With both teams going through rough patches and badly needing points to finish in respected positions at the table, this will be another fixture where both teams would go all in to secure all three points and given the quality and time (a month from now) when league table will shape up more clearly, this will surely be a thriller no one would want to miss.
Manchester United vs Chelsea (April 22, 2023):
Manchester United vs Chelsea is another anticipated fixture in the remaining 2022/23 premier league season. Talking about Manchester United, they’re playing one of the best football teams in the world, especially after the World Cup break, and are simply unstoppable at the moment. They sit third at the table with 49 points in 24 games, winning 15, drawing 4, and losing 5.
On the other hand, this fixture would be a big test for struggling Chelsea to win against one of the best teams in the premier league. Chelsea currently sits 10th at the table, securing 31 points in 23 games, winning 8, drawing 7, and losing 8.
That said, they’re in desperate need of points, and it is yet to see whether until then, Graham Potter will be able to find his winning ways or not because, as things stand, it will be tough for them to stand any chance against Erik Ten Hag’s side.
Arsenal vs Chelsea (April 29, 2023):
Arsenal vs Chelsea is another fixture going to occur in the coming months that no one can afford to miss. Talking about Arsenal first, they’re bossing the premier league this season, and despite losing a few points in recent games, they’re at the top of the table with 2 points lead over Manchester City with one more game in hand.
However, the game against Chelsea won’t be less than any big test for the Gunners, as previous results don’t count much in fixtures like these.
Against them will be Chelsea, who is going through rough patch and sitting 10th at the table, securing 31 points in 23 games, winning 8, drawing 7, and losing 8. However, there is much time left to this fixture, and they might be on their winning track till then, given their squad depth and quality, later or sooner, they’ll be producing results again.
Manchester City vs Chelsea (May 20, 2023):
Manchester City vs Chelsea is one of the action-packed fixtures scheduled in the last days of the 2022/23 premier league season. Talking about Pep Guardiola’s side first, they’re not in the position they’re used to, and this time it’s his assistant’s side that is giving them tough competition.
They sit second at the table with 55 points in 25 games, winning 17, drawing 4, and losing 4. By the time of this fixture, the league will be about to end, which makes this fixture more anticipating.
On the other hand, this fixture will also be of utmost importance for the blues. They badly need points and would need points at the last stage of the league season to finish in the top four and three points in such a game at that crucial time.
