Pompey vs. Chelsea

Fratton

Pompey v Chelsea

Pompey entertain Chelsea again at Fratton, probablt for the last time in a while, we have had some success against the big 4 in our Premiership, but a solitary draw 2 years ago when Defoe was making his debut is testament to their domination over us.

Vital Quotes:

Chelsea have made this a 'must win' match, while Pompey have stated they want to win every game possible to prove we are relegated by the premier league rather by the players, should be an open game then!

Pompey Team News:

Pompey have no fresh injury worries, it is very likely to be the same team that saw off Hull at the weekend, Finnan may well replace Mullins at right back, but the others surely justify keeping their places.

Player to watch: Smith

He is being courted by Derby once more, but his return to the team saw his debut goal, ther fans have taken to his eager running and will want him to succeed here at Fratton.

Chelsea Team News:

Petr Cech seems to have recovered from his recent injury, Ancelotti will no doubt see Fratton as the perfect place for his return. Ivanovic will be out after injuring his knee against Blackburn.

Player to watch: Drogba

Absolutely loves Pompey, seems to score everytime we play them, I recall a goal in the rain last season.

Match Facts & Stats

We play we lose, in fact the last time we beat them at any level was in 1960!

Avram's revenge! Bring it on!

Can't see us beating them unless it rains, FP was pretty cut up after the destruction of Dowdie at the weekend; so that could be a bit of a leveller

The weather forecast is for more rain. A dodgy pitch may help us a bit but to be honest we've usually lost these games by 2 or 3 nil & I can't see why that should change tonight. We have never been thrashed by Chelsea or even outplayed. They just take the few chances that come their way.

nothing to lose and everything to gain - this has been the case with us for some time now but SURELY we really must be going down this route now! i would rather we got a good spanking and had been having a go than rolled over and let them do us...

Don't even recollect a draw with Chelsea in the Prem. I believe we have lost EVERY game against them...

there was a definate 1-1 draw a couple of years back when defoe scored gray, other than that we have lost every time...

Look - lets be realistic, if pompey win this game or even draw, with the bones&spirit&manager, that still last in this club, it would be fecken big deal, big big deal. but more realistic idea, is that one of pompey fans, will just kidnap Drogba for today's game, or maybe you should hire him an "escort" or something. send a VIP Drogbit to Drogba, this may make the right vibration for Drogba and the right sensation for pompey.
