The naysayers and the press think Chelsea - this time last week invincible and unplayable – are now on a downward spiral towards mediocrity after two consecutive losses.

Well. Maybe not that dramatic, but reading through the press and web postings in the last few days you would forget that we are sitting at the top of the league with a three point advantage.

Still above City!

A stern test against West Ham passed with ease, a European adventure with a sweat hardly broken and a first half mauling against newcomers Blackpool bring to an end a very successful week of football.

Ian Holloway, Blackpool manager, stated that we are lightyears ahead. And as the Premier League currently stands it looks that there is more on the horizon.

Although we head to the east of the capital with a 100% record thus far, we are facing opposition who are currently sitting very wounded at the bottom of the league.

Whilst the odds are stacked heavily against an upset, Premier League history states that this won’t be a stroll at Upton Park.

Many of you will have read reports in the press today that, shock & horror, Chelsea only have 19 players in their squad.

Well.... 19 players over the age of 21.

How the devil will we cope?

What do you mean I have nobody to pass to!?!
