Our football match prediction:
Chelsea will be looking to cement top position in the Premier League standings with a victory over Middlesbrough at their Stamford Bridge. The Blues rolled over Everton at Goodison Park in their last league match and they are on the right track to regain the domestic trophy. Coach Antonio Conte can count on all of his first-team regulars for Monday’s football match and we predict that the capital club will record a routine win over the relegation-threatened team. The Boro are six points behind the “safe zone” in the standings and, as things stand now, they will play in the Championship next season. Steve Agnew’s troops failed to win previous 16 games on the road and, taking everything into account, they are unlikely to spoil Chelsea’s party at Stamford Bridge. It has to be noted that Middlesbrough suffered a 4-0 loss to Bournemouth in their last away game in the English top flight.
Highlighted Player (Eden Hazard):
After impressing during his six-year spell with Lille (2007-2012), Eden Hazard signed for Chelsea in June, 2012. The Belgian midfielder helped the Blues win the Premier League trophy in the 2014/2015 campaign and it has to be noted that he was named the Premier League Player of the Year back then. Eden Hazard made it to the 2014 World Cup quarter-finals with Belgium, but Argentina proved to be a big catch for the Red Devils in the last eight of the showpiece tournament in Brazil. Hazard scored one goal for Belgium at the Euro 2016 finals, while providing four assists for his teammates and no doubt he was the key player for Marc Wilmots’ team at the tournament in France. Eden was born on 7 January, 1991 in La Louviere, Belgium and it is well known that his brother Thorgan Hazard is a professional football player as well. Eden Hazard is married to Natacha Van Honacker, who gave birth to their three children.
Highlighted Team (Middlesbrough):
Middlesbrough are a professional football club that have been balancing between the top two divisions of England’s league system in the modern history. Boro have been playing their home games at the Riverside Stadium since 1995 and their shirt colour is red. The capacity of the Riverside Stadium is 34,742. Middlesbrough impressed in the 2015/2016 Championship campaign and they did really well to secure promotion to the English top flight. Newcastle United and Sunderland are regarded as the club’s main rivals, but there is a rivalry with Leeds United as well. Middlesbrough made it to the FA Cup final in 1997, but Chelsea proved to be a big catch for the Boro in the title game (0-2). However, the Riverside Stadium outfit did remarkably well to win the League Cup trophy in 2004, with the team beating Bolton Wanderers in the final. George Boateng, Stewart Downing, Juninho Paulista, Gareth Southgate, Jonathan Woodgate, Yakubu Aiyegbeni, Tuncay Sanli and Hamilton Ricard are the star footballers who left their mark at Middlesbrough.
