Chelsea v Portsmouth


The Battle of the Blues

This Sunday sees a cracking blue contest. Andre villas Boas' Chelsea side take on Micheal Appleton's Portsmouth. It is a contest of the young managers.  A new breed of managers with fire in their hearts and a burning desire to succeed.

With only one win from the past five games(including three 1-1 draws) Chelsea are fielding an extremely strong side at home not wanting to fall out as a surprise casualty. The last game a friendly saw Chelsea win 1-0 courtesy a goal by former Chelsea defender Tal Ben Haim

Portsmouth to have had an average run with two wins, two draws and a defeat in the last five games.

I was going to write this blog much earlier but unforeseen circumstances see me writing the blog at the exact same time as the teams being announced . So no predictions.
Chelsea are fielding the following squad
     Bosingwa             Luiz                       Terry(C)                     Cole


                      Ramires                                   Lampard

      Malouda                           Torres                                Mata

Bench : Turnbull, Ferreira, Hutchinson, Bertrand, Romeu, McEachran, Lukaku


Portsmouth (4-4-1-1):
Henderson; Ward, Pearce, Rocha, Halford; Lawrence (c), Norris, Mokoena, Mullins,; Kitson, Futacs.
Bench: Ashdown, Ben-Haim, Hreidarsson, Webster, Williams, Huseklepp, Benjani.
