Pompey will be looking to get at Chelsea tomorrow and hoping for their first Premiership point against the Blues.
'It's a game where you can have a go and hope to get a positive result' so says Harry Redknapp, hopefully a signal of intent tomorrow, with a 100% all defeat record against Chelsea what do we have to lose?
Belletti looks like stepping straight into the Chelsea team on Saturday, Glen Johnson looks to have blown his final chance for Chelsea at right-back, his defensive lapses that us Pompey fans are all to aware of, won't be eclipsed by his attacking threat for the blues, and the Brazilian Champions league winner should claim the spot for his own.
Shevchenko still recovers from his back injury along with fellow long term absentee Ballack.
Has started the season on fire, his Man City form seems to have returned and he will be looking to spring on.
Sol Campbell should be back, Linvoy is back in light training, Mendes and O'Neil are both doubts, but Sullet Muntari should step straight back in to fight it out against his big mate Essien.
Up front Nugent has come in for some absurd speculation over his future, but I feel he may start this one, his and Benjani's energy up front will be paramount in the old defend from the front adage.
Mourinho complained last year that James always saved his best for Chelsea, if Pompey are to get anythying he will need to be at the top of his game.
8 games, 8 defeats, 1 goal. Crap really.
The stats are awful, but my super optimistic mind feels we can pinch a point, and if not at least score! You agree? Stick your prediction here.
After Man u, its back to the easy stuff, Liverpool and the Arse next up
