STAR PREVIEW: Middlesbrough v Chelsea

[dropcap]C[/dropcap]helsea have won their last five games by an aggregate of 16-0 and will move back to the top of the Premier League table if winning their 4pm clash with Middlesbrough at the Riverside.

Antonio Conte’s team are in irresistible form with their 3-4-3 formation and should account for Boro who have proved they can raise their game against the top sides with draws away to Man City and Arsenal in their last three games.

If anything, Chelsea are getting better, if their 5-0 demolition of Everton at Stamford Bridge in the their most recent match was anything to go by.

Middlesbrough’s head coach Aitor Karanka is aware of the formidable challenge ahead: “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.”
