Hi Charlie.

I'm a fellow Chelsea fan and I think we will have too much for them in the midfield department, but we all know how dangerous Aguero can be, so the defence will need to be on it, all game.

I think City's defence isn't as strong as you would expect, so hopefully if Remy starts, we will see a couple from him.

I am just praying that 'Super Frank' doesn't do what he does best today, but it's written in the stars isn't it? I really hope it isn't the case, but I have this little nagging feeling.

I am going with a 3-1 Chelsea win, Hazard man of the match.

Come on Chelsea!!

Hey Cobaltic buddy...

Good to know you're a fellow Blue



Yeah I do have that same feeling in the back of my mind that Super Frank's first visit back to the Bridge could come back to bite us...

But I also think we can capitalise on the fact that Yaya Toure is in Africa & not in West London thankfully...
I see him as the main supply line for Silva & Aguero...


Missing Costa is a shame, but Remy has been impressive when he's been called upon... So fingers cross he can handle Kompany.



What we don't want is an early goal against, nor a goal against around the 45 minute mark...

It'll be interesting to see if Zouma (who has also been impressive) starts over Cahill again...
That'll be a big decision for Jose.


Come on Chels!

Blue is the colour, my friend.

I thought Zouma was impressive midweek, but I did notice Terry guiding him all through the game, but what a strong player. It's a BIG game though, so maybe Jose will go with Cahill's experience.

I would definitely start Remy today, I think he is a great player, but obviously with Costa being in the form he has been in, it's not surprising that he hasn't had much game time.

City will definitely miss Yaya and they never seem to be as much of a threat when he isn't playing. Obviously City are still a great team, but Chelsea should have a little more about them.

Come on Chelsea!!

Chelsea Line Up!

I was hoping Fabregas would be fit enough to play, that's a massive blow, but not the end of the World.

I'm happy he's gone with Ramires over Mikel.

Fabs a big loss in that midfield battle for sure.

Started well...
Sitting comfortably in City's half so far.

Chelsea go 1-0 up with a goal from Loic Remy!


Good build up down the right hand side...

Ivanovic with a cross to the far post where Hazard volleys with his left across goal for Remy to finish.



Come on Chels!

Equaliser for City from David Silva with finishing touch to Aguero's shot...


Poor defending from Chelsea and Courthois was flapping in the air...


Definitely against the run of play.


Half Time score 1-1!

Great finish by Remy, but what a volley pass from Hazard.

Azpilicueta out of position, allowing Navas in like that. I thought Courtois should have done better, but a fair scoreline going into half time.

For sure Hazard has been the highlight of our first half... Great volley.

Willian has been decent as well...



Courthois didn't surprise me...
As a shot stopper he is fantastic, second to none, but all season we've struggled to keep a clean sheet & he has been one of the reasons why imo...


Still on for our 2-1 & 3-1 predictions though


We need Oscar to liven up because centrally we've been a bit quiet.
Too much work down the wings we'll become predictable & ineffective imo.



Come on Chels!

Terrible second half performance...


Lucky to come away with a point today.



Full Time: Chelsea 1-1 Man City.

We didn't get the score right, but I would take a point after that rather abject performance in the second half.

City played much better than I thought they would and thankfully Frank didn't score.

I'm late for a gig now and my band mates will be having kittens. Have a great night Charlie.

Good to hear



Yeah not losing ground in the gap at the top was the most important thing.
