Chelsea vs. Sunderland

Stamford Bridge

8th December 2007

15:00

Chelsea V Sunderland

Sunderland travel to the capital this weekend for the match against Chelsea.

Sunderland are still searching for their first away win of the season and are hoping to avoid another thrashing like the one they received agianst Everton.

Chelsea are a quality team and if the likes of Everton score seven goals in against your team it worrying how many Chelsea could manage on Saturday.

However I think over the years we have always gave a good account of ourselves against Chelsea and hopefully we can be their bogey team this Saturday.

Chelsea Team News:

Didier Drogba is a major doubt as is Petr Cech and Florent Malouda
Paulo Ferreira, Ricardo Carvalho and Michael Ballack are all out.
Michael Essien is suspended.

Player to watch: Frank Lampard

He's a top quality midfielder who chips in with goals regularly. Sunderland will be hoping he's having an off day.

Sunderland Team News:

Nyron Nosworthy, Carlos Edwards, Russell Anderson, Stan Varga and Kieran Richardson are all out injured.

Player to watch: Kenwyne Jones

Can the big man show his quality against a team with Chelsea`s skill. I think he might just surprise a Chelsea defence.

Match Facts & Stats

In our last six league games against Chelsea at Stamford Bridge we have Won 1, Draw 0 and Lost 5

Ref Watch:

Peter Walton

Match Prediction:

It will be a tough game against Chelsea I think we will win this one 5-0…………………only kidding hopefully we can sneak a draw or even steal a win 1-1 Draw I Hope

Next Fixtures:
