Chelsea Vs Middlesbrough Live Online Commentary
Antonio Conte’s tutored side will be keen to make use of Tottenham’s slip on Friday and now they can extend the gap at the top of the Premier League table to 7 points. If Chelsea grab a victory against Middlesbrough, they need just one more win from remaining three games to become the champions. Form wise, Chelsea have lost 2 of their last six Premier League matches. But since the loss at Old Trafford against Manchester United on 16th April, the Blues picked up two straight wins scoring 7 goals in total. At home, Chelsea have been in great form this term with 14 victories from 16 outings, with the remaining 2 being losses. As regards team news: centre-back David Luiz is doubtful for this match, but apart from that Chelsea are injury free.
On the other hand, Boro are 19th in the Premier League standings and are at the verge of getting relegated. Dropping points against Chelsea will sent them back to the Championship. Middlesbrough are undefeated in their last two outings, a victory against Sunderland and a 2-2 stalemate against Manchester City. But the pressure is now immense after Swansea pulled 7 points clear-off them with a victory against Everton on Saturday. Middlesbrough are one of the worst team away from home in the league and managed just one victory whole season. Grant Leadbitter and Daniel Ayala are doubts ahead of this match, with Victor Valdes and Gaston Gamirez definitely ruled out.
