Chelsea FC: Predicting Results for the Blues' Final 9 Games

Heading into the home stretch of the season, it seems the number of matches and tournaments Chelsea has played so far would be enough to easily fill up two years' worth of football.

But it’s hard for players, management or us fans to complain, seeing how the Blues schedule is a byproduct of the club’s success in winning the UEFA Champions League on that oh-so glorious Saturday in Munich in May last year.

To the victors go the spoils, right?

Yeah, some spoils, brother. Maybe if an oxygen tent, a year’s supply of Starbucks and a walker were part of the deal it wouldn’t seem so damn laborious right about now. (Please send the nurse in, doc. My intravenous French Roast drip is in desperate need of a change.)

Anyway, not counting a possible Europa League final, the current European and FA Cup champions—better use those wonderful titles while we still can—have at least nine fixtures left for sure on its schedule, with seven English Premier League matches on tap and two Europa League semifinal legs.

But upon closer scrutiny, none of those nine games will be easy, and if the Blues are to secure a fourth-place or better finish in the league or win a piece of silverware, they had better start playing like they did to start the season.

Here is a look at the remaining games on fourth-place Chelsea’s (17-7-7, 58 points) schedule, complete with possible ramifications and a predicted final score.
