Chelsea v Sunderland

Postby Conner99 » Wed Apr 03, 2013 7:19 pm

Chelsea lost 2-1 at Southampton probably due to manager Rafel Benitez making seven changes to the side that beat West Ham last weekend ..it was a gamble that did not pay off as Chelsea slipped to 4th in the table ..will it be back to normal against the Black Cats ..?


Sunderland lost 1-0 to leaders Man Utd and with it their manager Martin O`Neill , and it did not take long to appoint a new manager as we now all know is Paolo Di Canio ..(the following paragraph has been removed due to not being related to football matters and therefore is not relevant) .

So a tough first game for Di Canio and the countdown begins in his mission tp keep Sunderland in the Premier League .

Even though Paolo Di Canio has been appointed as Sunderland's new manager I can only predict a comfortable home win.

Chelsea 3-0 Sunderland.

Did you know that Sunderland have won none of their last eight Barclays Premier League matches (D3 L5).

Any comments or predictions?

This is an interesting tie, and I think Di Canio is bound to have an impact on the team. Nailed on there will be a 'story' when the final whistle blows. The question is, will it be a happy or a sad one for Sunderland? I'm hoping it will be a happy one!

HT

Chelsea 0-1 Sunderland

Azpilicueta 45’ (o.g.)

The Black Cats played very well in the first half and go in 1-0 up at the break thanks to an OG!

Sunderland played well in the first half but some poor defending cost them.

I think Torres and Ivanovic played a good game.

Yes Torres for the first time i can remember came on with the energy of the Torres of old ,and maintained it throughout the game pretty much. That being said hazard ,Oscar were really poor in fact the whole team but for Torres looked tired their touch was terrible even from Mikel early on.

Interesting comments by Ray Wilkins in regards to the Man u v man city game today. he said "if the player isn't scoring is he contributing, if they are not leave them out"! I wonder if uses the same ideology when talking about his mate Lampard! Because if he's not scoring ,he has been one of the worst contributing players in the top flight without a question. And that includes Torees!
