Chelsea head back to Stamford Bridge tomorrow night to take on Newcastle United in the Carabao Cup. With Chelsea in the midst of an injury crisis, similar applies to tomorrow’s opposition perhaps there would be an opportunity of rotation. Think again.
As the Christmas schedule begins to take its toll both Chelsea and Newcastle will play a total of 4 games between now and New Year’s Day. With such a hectic schedule and tomorrow being a break from Premier League action you would think a hint of rotation would come in for a side chasing Champions League qualification.
Not according to Eddie Howe who spoke to the press this morning, he told the media which was reported in The Guardian;
“We want the games, we want the competition. We want the excitement of challenging for trophies.”
It seems like Chelsea will have to be at it from minute one tomorrow night and not repeat the disaster of a few weeks ago when the blues capitulated quickly into the 2nd half.
