Harry Redknapp has told his players that there is no reason Pompey can`t go to Chelsea and win. The champions are yet to loose at home in the premiership under Mourinho.
'Somebody has got to beat them there some time - so why not us?'
'Apart from last season, I've always taken a very decent side to Chrelsea and this will be no exception.
'Even last seasson when we were desperately short of quality we gave Chelsea a test and were well in the game for 70 minutes before losing 2-0.
'Now it is just nice to be going there with 16 points already on the board from eight games and everybody feeling confident.'
'Chelsea are the best around and after watching them on Wednesday, playing without any width but still coming up with a great win, I just don't know how they will play against us.
'There is so much talent there in the squad that they can field any 11 and it will be top class. It is the sort of situation we are aiming for here.
'I've got lots of options up front and in midfield and I will continue to try to mix them up to the best effect.
'We had a great start to the season with five clean sheets and it was important to come back with a win against West Ham after we had lost a couple, because in the next few weeks we have some tough away games at Manchester United, Liverpool and Arsenal as well.'
I know a Chelsea fan that just goes to home games and has never seen them loose! (only been attending games since Mourinho joined) Is it unrealistic that Pompey can become the first team to win against Jose`s side at the Bridge?
