I Don't Want To Go To Chelsea…

Chelsea 2 West Ham 0

At least this fan saved £55 by missing this one. The MOTD2 evidence suggests we could easily have lost by more, although Hazard and Mata looked world class on the day. Almost inevitably Big Fat Frank scored the opener when poor marking allowed him a free header in the box to score his 200th Chelsea goal. No sign of BFF not celebrating against his former club as he peels away in front of the away support, though the coin-throwing from a few idiots was stupid.

Jarvis does well to get in a cross and Carroll has the ball in the net only to be penalised for a push on Luiz, which looks a correct decision. Diame has one powerful run that almost creates a chance while Ba misses several chances and Jussi plays well. Hazard is just too skilful for West Ham's defence with the second and you have to say it's a delightful goal. The only other West Ham sniff is when sub Carlton Cole produces a late save from Cech from Jarvis's cross. On the plus side Pat Nevin says Andy Carroll played really well. But then he also rated the Cocteau Twins…

We were always likely to lose this one and looking at the fixtures history suggests we'll lose at Liverpool, Manchester City and Everton. So we need to get six points from home games against West Brom, Man United, Wigan, Newcastle and Reading and the game at Southampton. Surely that's achieveable?
