Chelsea hopeful to win 3 points
Perhaps after a stumble without pay, teachers Lampard will have earned as opportunities and not allowed to make mistakes any more any time. By an "accident" as defeat to Sheffield may cause Chelsea lost for European ticket next season.
Convenient for Chelsea in the next round, they only met the team was officially relegated Norwich. This is a very good opportunity to "Blues" breakthrough in the race to the Top 4, by the pocket 3 points actually easier.
