There are an awful lot of daft cliches floating around the game. But we have always heeded the one about there being no easy games in The Premier League. It’s so true. Chelsea may have had a flying start but England has greater strength in depth than any other major league in Europe.
English clubs may be stuttering in The Champions League but, when you look at the league, any of the top 12 teams in the division could realistically beat any other.
So, while Chelsea vs Hull looks like a home banker, we don’t think that Jose will be counting his chickens yet. Because he will see this one as a potential banana skin. Hull have a good squad and are more than capable of a surprise.
Chelsea have been very fortunate with injuries this season and their one remaining casualty, Nathan Ake, is due back this weekend. What a dream campaign so far!
With a hectic December coming up Mourinho will look to rotate. But having rested John Terry, Willian and Hazard for The Champions League game vs Sporting Lisbon, we think he will go hell for leather again with his strongest line up at the weekend – apart from Cesc, who is suspended for one match after picking up 5 yellows.
