Jose Mourinho will see his side play Stoke City this weekend at Stamford Bridge
With players slowly returning to their respective clubs this week after the international break, Mourinho will want to avoid any kind of hangover and secure all three points.
Chelsea have just eight games left this season to secure the Premier League title, while Stoke look secure in a mid-table finish.
However, former Scottish footballer Lou Macari, believes it is a bad time for Stock City to be heading to Chelsea. He said: “I’ve got to be honest and say it isn’t easy making a case for Stoke City.
“It looks like the hardest game on paper and I fear that’s how it will pan out. It’s true to say there’s no pressure on Stoke and than can only help them at Stamford Bridge but it’s also true there is no chance whatsoever of any complacency in the Chelsea Camp”
Chelsea have a six point lead over second placed Manchester City and look determined to put the race to bed.
Macari added: “They want to shut the door on the chasing pack and that leaves them focussed on three points against Stoke”
“Of course they can be beaten at home, just ask Bradford after they gave Chelsea a two-goal start before knocking them out of the FA Cup”
