Middlesbrough vs Chelsea – English Premier League – Preview

Posted on by Sreya

Middlesbrough vs Chelsea

Middlesbrough vs Chelsea – Antonio Conte’s Chelsea travel to Riverside Stadium on 20th November, Sunday to face Middlesbrough in an English Premier League fixture.

Chelsea have been in terrific form ever since Antonio Conte switched over to a 3-4-3 formation, winning five matches on the trot, scoring sixteen goals and conceding none in the process. Chelsea are on the third position in league standings with twenty-five points. With Liverpool drawing at Southampton, have an incredible opportunity to ascend to the summit should they win tonight.

Middlesbrough, who have won only one of their last six matches but managed to secure draws against Arsenal and Manchester City in away fixtures, are fifteenth with eleven points.

Team News

James Husband is yet to regain match fitness for Middlesbrough while George Friend and Daniel Ayala are listed as doubts.

Chelsea will be without Kurt Zouma, who returned to the reserve side this past weekend and Marco van Ginkel, still recuperating from his lengthy spell on the sidelines. Eden Hazard, Diego Costa, Cesc Fabregas and Ruben Loftus-Cheek are minor injury concerns but the former two are likely to start.

Middlesbrough Possible Starting Lineup: Victor Valdes, Nsue, Calum Chambers, Ben Gibson, Antonio Barragan, Adama Traore, Adam Forshaw, Adam Clayton, Marton de Roon, Gaston Ramirez, Alvaro Negredo.

Chelsea Possible Starting Lineup: Thibaut Courtois, Cesar Azpilicueta, David Luiz, Gary Cahill, Victor Moses, Nemanja Matic, N’Golo Kante, Marcos Alonso, Pedro, Diego Costa, Eden Hazard.

“I think Chelsea are definitely one of the favourites for the league, especially as they are not playing Champions League football. Chelsea is another tough challenge for us. Antonio Conte is settling in the league very well but we can show once again how we can compete.”

– Aitor Karanka, Middlesbrough.
