Pompey v Chelsea

Pompey welcome a team still hoping to catch the runaway juggernaut that is Man U, Hiddink has re-galvanised a team that was wobbling under the Brazilian regime.

Vital Quotes:

Paul Hart is full of all the right quotes right now, he told Sky Sports
'Chelsea are very good. They have some world class players and we have to guard against that.

'But it is not like we are going to go out there and start putting up the shutters. When we can play we will play.

'You only have to look at last weekend's results to see some strange things can happen at this stage of the season.

'Fixtures change, the weather changes and players get tired. Titles are won and lost at this time of the year.'

Certainly what we as fans want to hear, but we will want the players to back up these words also, especially as the likes of Kranjcar has been biiging him self up in the press last week, results are what count, not words.

Pompski Team News:

Pompey have no fresh injury worries going into the match, a repeat line-up looks likely, with Gekas maybe returning to the bench with Guy Whittingham's praise ringing in his ears. Nugent maybe pushed out wide once more, his work effort should be enough to give Utaka a chance to look in the mirror and see what he could achieve if only he could be arsed.

Player to watch: Crouch

The 2 metre man has promised to fire us to safety, no time like the present Pete, if Miss Clancy dishes out her love every time you score, you will need bigger shorts soon!

Chelski Team News:

Chelsea have rediscovered some of their old swagger once more, Beau's Grandad's Nephew has found his scoring touch from midfield, Drogba looks like the player from last season and Anelka has been banging them in all season, and to top it all Terry has found a liking from corners again, Pompeys 100% record against Chelsea will be the bookies favourites to carry on for another season at least.

Player to watch: Lampard

Jamie's mum's, husband's nephew is back to his best and always, I mean ALWAYS scores against us.

Match Facts & Stats

No stats needed, they are the only 1 of the big 4 to consistently stuff us.

Can Pompey break the Chelsea hoodoo? Or will it be business as usual as Chelsea look to cling onto Man U's coat-tails? Hedge a guess click here

Totally agree that the danger is forward midfield players i.e. Lampard. Play solid and attack on the break

yup anelka is doubtful with a bad toe... malouda certainly can prove to be a bit of a bonus for you guys ;)

I'm biting my nails on this. Yeah.. three points would be magic but i'd settle for a draw. They won't turn us over like they did earlier (hope not anyway) but this is gonna be a hard tough game for us i think. I just hope we come out and have a right old go for the full ninety minutes. If Kranjcar is on the top of his game, you never know we might even nick it.

What's your guess on the system we are going to go for tonight. I might be wrong but Chelsea under Hiddink still seem to be playing a tight and narrow formation. Not that entertaining but hard to break down.

I thought he was Jamie's wife's mother-in-law's sister's son. Never mind, with the right attitude we can get a result at 'Fortress Fratton' - fingers crossed everyone!!

This is a fixture that we never realistically expect anything from, whoever the manager is, even if it was Frank's mum's sister's son's dad. In fact we haven't beaten them for yonks. So I'll be happy with a good performance - but . . . ya never know, if we COULD get something it would be just fantastic. And it might make the league table look a little less scary. C'mon!!!

Well if that's the case Rug, maybe Crouchie out to be kept under gaurd within walking distance of the ground, and only allowed out for training and matches... Might work, you never know

Anything tonite will be a bonus. 1 point out of 11 matches against them is awful. The worst points return by a mile. The bad weather forecast may help even it out!

Well maybe that awful point percentage will be a little healthier after tonights game. Nothing ever stays the same. I'm really hoping Crouchie can get on the end of something tonight. Sticking one in the back of Cech's net would do him the power of good for matches to come...

defintaly must win... Back to the game, and I think we will aim to frustrate first half, and tire you out. second half, we will set up the same, then last 20 mins (assuming it's all going to plan), bring on a load of quick players (belhadj/traore, gekas/utaka/nugent...etc.), increase the tempo, and try to nick a goal at the end.
