Apart from Oriol Romeu who is out for the season, Chelsea have a full strength squad to choose from ahead of Sunday. Frank Lampard and Branislav Ivanovic was rested for the midweek Europa League game and Demba BA was cup-tied so expect all three to start this one. It will be interesting to see if Captain John Terry plays his third game in the space of a week under Benitez.Carefree & KTBFFH
Undefeated in four games looks good on paper but it doesn't tell the whole story. Chelsea struggled against Sparta Prague and a last minute goal from Eden Hazard spared us from extra time.
A 4-0 win against Brentford, a 1-0 win away to Sparta and a 4-1 home win against Wigan beforehand have hardly impressed as Chelsea look a shadow of themselves lately.
Fernando Torres has now scored only one goal in his last fourteen appearances as he continues to struggle.
In our last game, Chelsea and City drew 0-0 in Rafa Benitez's first game in charge at Stamford Bridge. In the last game at Eastlands, City fought back from a goal down to beat Chelsea 2-1 in one of the pivotal games that took them to title success. This game could literally go either way and will be dependant on who turns up and plays well on the day.
