How Chelsea’s fixture list compares to Tottenham, Man United and other top four rivals

Chelsea face a tough fixture list when they come back from their winter break.

The Premier League’s first ever mid-season break comes at a welcome time for the Blues, with just one win in their last five games and injury problems stacking up.

But when they are right up against it once again when they return, with games against rivals in the race for top four coming back-to-back.

First up for Frank Lampard’s side are two home clashes against Manchester United and Spurs, which could prove vital in deciding who claims a place in the Champions League next season.

It does not get any easier after that, with another home clash against Bayern Munich in the Champions League.

Clashes against Bournemouth, Liverpool in the FA Cup, Everton and Aston Villa before the return leg against Bayern at the Allianz Arena.

And their final fixture before the international break in March is an encounter with Manchester City at Stamford Bridge.

Picking up points across that run will be vital as Chelsea look to maintain their grasp on a top four place, but how do their rivals stack up?
