PREVIEW: Wigan v Chelsea - Ramires to start?

Now forgive me Wigan fans if you are reading this but you have to take certain things into consideration. In the last 2 Premier League games you have conceded 12 goals and haven't scored. Chelsea have scored 14 goals and haven't conceded so you have to say that everything points to a comfortable Chelsea win and let's not forget the last time we played each other!.

The one thing to remember however, is that we lost at the DW last season so Chelsea need to make sure they do not take anything for granted as we all know you need to work hard to earn the points in the Premiership.

Alot has changed at Chelsea under Ancelotti ever since we came to the DW last and after our unexpected performance last weekend that deep down surprised most of us, Chelsea will look to get on the ball and dominate the game early on in the game.

I expect Chelsea to make one change on Saturday and that will be Ivanovic for Ferreira which is hard luck on our loyal servant but Ivanovic should be fully fit and able to take his place in the side. As for Ramires, I expect he will be named on the bench and depending on how the game pans out, will have some involvement against Wigan.

Chelsea were very impressive last weekend, looked the part and scored for fun once more. Not bad considering that we never seemed like we stepped out of first gear and Ancelotti believing that we are still 3-4 weeks away from being fully fit!.

The key for Wigan is to get amongst Chelsea early and press the ball. If we have time and space in the important area's of the pitch then I am sorry Wigan and I mean no disrepect, but I can only see Chelsea winning by a clear margin.

I wrote my article the other day on CFCNet about Carlo Ancelott's take on the 4-3-3 formation and how teams are unable to cope with the attacking movement of our "front five". If Wigan are unable to impose their authority on Drogba, Anelka, Malouda, Lampard and Essien it will be a long day.

I know people harp on about our "easy" start to the season compared to other teams but listen, they all count at the end of the season and it's games like Saturday where we can do what we did against West Brom, and make our goal difference count!.

I said it in jest last Saturday before the game, but this time it has much more of a meaning:

Anyone fancy 7-0?

Come on the Chels!
