Reflection and Preview - Liverpool to Chelsea

Our last Premier League outing saw a truly brilliant performance from the Blue n' White Army. Outclassing Liverpool really turned a lot of negativity around the club into positivity.

After the 3-0 drubbing at Sunderland, if you had asked me if we have a chance of getting 3 points today, the answer would definitely have been no. However a new optimism has hit me after that truly great performance. I honestly feel we could be coming 'back up the motorway with 3 points' today, even though our record against Chelsea is poor. Out of our last 7 games, we have not won any and conceding 16 goals, more than 2 per game!

2010

Blackburn Rovers 1-2 Chelsea

Blackburn Rovers 1-1 Chelsea

Blackburn Rovers 3-3 Chelsea

Chelsea 5-0 Blackburn Rovers

Chelsea 2-0 Blackburn Rovers

Blackburn Rovers 0-2 Chelsea

Blackburn Rovers 0-1 Chelsea

2008

This could be the day we turn it around. Bar the 7-0 win against Ipswich last week, Chelsea have been really poor of late, and I think we could take advantage. With a couple more signings this January I feel we could be on for Top 8 this season, but on the negative side.. 3 losses and we are in a relegation fight.. which really does contradict what I just said doesn't it.. ahh well!

My prediction:

Chelsea 1-1 Blackburn Rovers..

Having said that, I am yet to get one of these right.. haha!
