A nice fixture for Chelsea, who still haven't convinced despite picking up points in their last two games. I can't see this game being a problem though, and they should take it by a few goals.

2-0.

A load of us going for a day/evening in London, to drink their grossly expensive beer, and we'll just see what happens. Away end is sold out, as it is with most London games because it's about the only place we find easy to get to. If we get battered, so be it.

Chelsea have seemingly improved from their early season, Mourinho improving his side in the only way he knows how, making them grind even more than they did previously. But if they are ever to flourish back into goal scoring form, it'll be against us.

We're down to our 3rd choice keeper who hasn't played regularly since our League One days. and a youth team keeper has been recalled from a loan at Weymouth to sit on our bench...Combined with a central defence that is probably in the worst form of any in the league & is carrying a few knocks, and then add in the set piece prowess of Willian, and a few free kick/corner goals are inevitable.

We might be making a few changes from our last starting 11 due to knocks picked up, god knows what our side will look like.

But one thing we might be able to better Chelsea at, the one thing we could better most teams at, is sheer guts and energy. The chaos that was Everton last weekend showed that we're up for a fight. And if any of that defensive frailty and susceptibility to pace do remain in Chelsea, then we'll have a go.

The goalkeeping situation is our new biggest concern. Add that to the leakiest, injury-stricken defence in the league and Man Utd up next this isn't going to go too well for us. Surely we can get through 90 minutes of football without any more injuries? Is that too much to ask?

Ah well. Already written off as a loss. Tomorrow all about fun and games. And an away game 10 minutes from my house which is a bonus.

This game has draw written all over it. I think a goal a piece with Chelsea scrambling one over the line first. Boos at full time.

This will be Hazard's 18th game without a goal in the league. Not much criticism though, being the tabloid golden boy of the league.

Costa benched again. Hard to see any way back for him now. I think Mourinho has had enough defending him. His behaviour and overall play suggests his heart ain't really in it.

Zidane scored 6 goals in an entire season once....did we forget everything else he had done?

Goals are not part of Hazards game....I doubt they will ever be. You have to either obsessed or down right stupid to suggest he's not a good player because goals don't feature much in his game.

That said he's been woeful up until the last few games.

But he still scored right?

He plays in the same position as Alexis, who's classed as a forward/winger. Yet for some reason Hazard is always shoe horned into 'midfield' to make his stats look less woeful.

He's been found out, as soon as the league got competitive. He's better than Ronaldo though.

Adam Smith tearing Pedro a new arsehole and Pedro should be off after his various attempts at stopping Smith. But as ever, we can't touch an established PL player without incurring a foul, whereas they can what they like in return.

Decent first half, should be ahead, disappointed with 0-0 and I didn't think I'd be saying that

Harry Arter is a good player, reckon he'll be in the PL next season with or without Bournemouth.

You're playing Chelsea, of course you should be disappointed with the scores being 0-0.

I think Pagnell means to say in the world of puns I am much like Ron Jeremy is in the world of porn, ugly but successful.
