Chelsea vs. Pompey

Chelsea v Pompey

Pompey will be looking to get at Chelsea tomorrow and hoping for their first Premiership point against the Blues.

Vital Quotes:

'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?

Chelsea Team News:

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.

Player to watch: Wright-Phillips

Has started the season on fire, his Man City form seems to have returned and he will be looking to spring on.

Pompey Team News:

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.

Player to watch: James

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.

Match Facts & Stats

8 games, 8 defeats, 1 goal. Crap really.

Ref Watch:

Alan Wiley

Match Prediction:

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.

Next Fixtures:

After Man u, its back to the easy stuff, Liverpool and the Arse next up

Time for change, come on Pompey, give it to Utaka and let him run them ragged

I'm with you mate Utaka can take them!! Sneaking feeling we might just do em. Nugent to score first.

After 8 straight losses & only one goal scored & it's away, anything close to a point will be fantastic. Anything else & divine intervention has taken place.
storagematt
home win - simple fact, face it!
merlin
I agree merlin but nothing wrong with a bit of optimism. Come on Pompey!

fellas im often blinded by my love for pompey - as we all are - but i still cannot always believe we will lose even if it is likely we will. last season i had this strongest feeling i had ever had that we would beat united, liverpool and arsenal in our run in - we did united and liverpool and would have arsenal if it wasnt for poll! ive had another of these feelings about chelski so i reckon we might just do them 2-1, altho i would clearly take a point...

Rug please do not remind us of the Poll incident. You are welcome to your premonitions but no Poll thanks. Hope you are right though.
eastneydave
so do i as i was have a tidy little payout from the bookies - which will go towards the 'season ticket for 2008/09 season fund for rug'...
