In a possible dress rehearsal for the FA Cup semi-final at Wembley in just over three weeks, Chelsea take on Spurs at Stamford Bridge in a must win game to keep Chelsea’s hopes for a minimum 4th place finish alive. After the midweek defeat at Citeh, Chelsea have to bounce back and look to finish the rest of the season unbeaten.
I hate stats, facts, figures and general footballing coincidences but every time this fixtures crops up I immediately think that Spurs haven’t won at The Bridge in 20 odd years and you can’t help thinking that one day Spurs will prevail.
I hope it’s not today and that Spurs will have to wait another year to try again!!!
For the first time in his short tenure Di Matteo HAS to look into the eyes of each and every player to see if they are UP for it, as some were not UP for it the other night and there have been a lot of strolling around performances this season.
Stroll around today Chelsea, and Spurs will pick you off despite their recent run of results and form and not forgetting the anguish suffered at the events at White Hart Lane last weekend.
Chelsea welcome back the ‘One England Captain,’ John Terry, Leader and Legend, perfect timing, as Chelsea are off to play Benfica in the ‘Corrupt Cup’ quarter-final 1st leg on Tuesday night.
COME ON CHELSEA
