A tough match coming up after the enforced two week break.Eleven of our players are presently away on international duty,so not the ideal preparation.
It's a top of the table clash,with both teams unbeaten in the first 3 games.Chelsea having a huge advantage with the massive sums of money spent on their players.
They've shipped out 30 players in the close season including Torres,Lukaku,Lampard,Ba,Luiz,Moses,Cole,Eto'o,& Traore.
Players in include Didier Drogba,Cesc Fabregas 30m,Mario Pasalic,Diago Costa 32m,Filipe Luis 20m,Loic Remy 10m.
Our ticket allocation is sold out so we have the full backing of the very vocal Jack Army to spur our players on.
We cannot compete on equal terms with the Russian megabucks that have been pumped into Chelsea,but we do have players that have already proved they can beat the best on offer,after beating Man Utd on their own patch this season.
Should be a good game!

A nice day out was had by all,shame about the result.
London is so expensive. A pint of Carling in the White Horse was 3.95,I'm used to finding a Wetherspoons and getting a pint for under 2.
Even the Concourse bar in the ground was over the top with a pint of Thai beer costing 4.40.
The ground is superficially nice but in reality it is decrepid,with cramped seating and poor viewing of the pitch.
We started off great,scored the early goal,and missed a few chances. Those misses were to prove costly as just before half time we conceded,a big blow.
Second half the great tactician Mourinho changed things around and pressed us high,giving us no chance of playing our passing game,and the tactics worked a treat. We stood off their players,gave them too much room,and they had a field day.
Back to the drawing board and to analyse those defensive lapses and rectify them in time for the next match.
