Can Villa pull off a two for? or Even the three for?
Is Arsenal seriously in trouble or do they get back on track against Fulham?
Does Tottenham get out to the big start they need w/o Bale?
Does United show cracks this week in the start of their rough stretch?

Hopefully Villa will be knackered heading into that Saturday match. Tough to have fixture congestion so early in the year.

Southampton-Sunderland has been moved from Extra Time to NBCSN to replace West Ham-Newcastle

I love Sky Sports' intro every weekend. I get so pumped.



They did a cool intro for Chelsea this weekend too...

I agree he should've started De Bruyne, but they are playing 3 games in 8 days. There will be some kind of rotation. He'll be back for the Utd game for sure. Hopefully Lukaku gets some good minutes too.

Squad is so deep, no space for Torres, Essien or Moses.

Strongly suspect that Chelsea will go unbeaten at home this season.

They are unbeaten at home under Mourinho (as was Inter)

What a sick pass of Hazard to Ba. Very unfortunate that a defender got here first. On another note, I ordered a Belgium NT shirt with number 10 on the back last week. Can't wait until it arrives!

EDIT: lol at 73 vs 27% ball possession.

Just give us Benteke. Keep Rooney...

Silver lining: Chelsea will come out and push with more intensity to regain the lead. Villa were nowhere in the game for 47 minutes.

I'd say both sides played a very poor first half.

Chelsea are just not pushing high enough. They are sitting back and trying to frustrate Villa. They are better than that.

They aren't even using Hazard, Mata and Oscar, just going over the top and trying to find Ba.

And it's great to have all this possession, but Villa aren't Levante, they won't bite. They definitely don't want to concede 8 this time so they are compact at the back. I'd put Lukaku on and disrupt the two center backs. Try marking both Ba and Lukaku...

We are definitely not killing them, Jose!
