Manchester City vs Chelsea

Chelsea's race to catch Manchester United continues this weekend at Eastlands, with Utd's local rivals the opponents. After Wednesday nights disappointing defeat to Fenerbahce, the Blues will be looking to bounce back immediately and close the gap at the top of the table to 2 points, with Manchester United not playing until Sunday.

The previous meeting between the two sides saw Chelsea triumph emphatically 6-0, with goals from Michael Essien, Joe Cole, Salomon Kalou, Andriy Shevchenko and a brace from Didier Drogba.

Chelsea are undefeated in the Premiership since December and will know another before the end of the season will seriously dent their title hopes.

Petr Cech is unlikely to return, so Carlo Cudicini will continue in goal and Claude Makelele is likely to be rested ahead of next weeks Champions League second leg.

For City Micah Richards is defiently out, whilst Michael Ball wont be ready to return.

Match chat here folks. :blue scalf:

I'm curious about the team selection - he must be resting the likes of Carvalho, Ballack and Cole for the Fenerbastards game. I think we shall win this - it would take us three clear of Olympique Arsenais

Own Goal by Manchester City's Richard Dunne

A sliding tackle made by Dunne forces the ball into the net though Essien would have scored had Dunne not have netted. Assist by Nicolas Anelka.

Here we go again. :rolleyes:

think boro this is a piss poor performance so far, we still can't score for ourselves.

started well for the first 15mins then city came into it more and could be 3-1 up.

i don't know what fuck's going on but it aint good enough, i worry could be another fenebache if we don't buck our ideas up.

We used to be able to go a goal up and just know our defence would get us 3 points whatever else happened. Now though, we can't rely on playing that way - maybe its time the players realised that and got their arses in gear before we gift this to Utd on a plate.

i hope Grant plays 4-4-2. with kalou and joey on the wings and anelka and drogs in front. Anelka would creat sooo many chances for Drogs. We need to ATTACK ATTACK ATTACK ATTACK [email protected] on tuesday, and stuff in 3-4 goals past them.

But with 4-4-2, he will have to keep either lamps or ballack out.
