Match previews sponsored by EZE Group - Lifestyle Experts

After Saturday’s disappointing draw with Derby County, Birmingham City have to raise their game for the visit of a Chelsea side that is in turmoil and maybe ready to show the world that the sacking of Villas-Boas was the right move by Abramovich.

Circumspection on Chelsea

So here we are, back at the top of the week. Our next opponents lost at the weekend, sacked their manager and now have his number two in as an interim cover until the end of the season.

If there is one thing I hate more than a gloryhunter fan, it’s an arrogant, plastic, gloryhunter fan.

It’s why pieces like this one from the Bleacher Report really annoy me.

Tomorrow sees the Blues travel to west London to play the re-arranged fixture against the Pensioners of Chelsea. For Chelsea, they must win this game to have any chance of retaining the league title; it’s not as vital for Birmingham but an upset would see them shoot up the table into the top half – such is the compactness of what has been a very tight division this year.
