Football pundit, Charlie Adam has predicted that Chelsea can win at least seven of their upcoming eight games, and gain some confidence ahead of the closing stages of the 2023-24 campaign.

The Blues will play Luton in their last game of 2023 on Saturday, with some very important matches to follow in January and February.

Chelsea will kick off January by playing Preston in an FA Cup third round tie at Stamford Bridge, before facing Middlesbrough away in the Carabao Cup semi-final first leg.

A Premier League clash with Fulham at Stamford Bridge will then follow for Chelsea, who will later host Middlesbrough at home for the return fixture of their Carabao Cup tie.

The Blues will close off January with a league trip to Anfield to play Liverpool, before facing Wolves and Crystal Palace in their first two fixtures of February, and Adams believes the game against Jurgen Klopp’s side will be the only difficult one amongst them all for the West Londoners.

He told BBC’s Radio 5 Live’s Football Daily show: “Chelsea are a bit like a rollercoaster at the moment. They are in the Carabao Cup semi-final and you’d expect them to beat Middlesbrough. Their next few games are Luton, Preston, Middlesbrough, Fulham, Middlesbrough, Liverpool, Wolves and Crystal Palace.

“You’d expect Chelsea to win every game there apart from the Liverpool match. If they can come through that period by winning every game, they’ll be in a cup final, they’ll be higher in the league and really kicking on for the second half of the season.”
