I`m not a great fan of 20:00 hour kick-offs!

After a long day in the office, I find it hard to switch back on and intently focus on what is happening on the field of play. For some strange reason, the fifteen minute difference between 20:00 hours and the usual 19:45 hours kick off; makes all the difference.

But, like you all, I`ll battle on tonight as Chelsea travel down the M4 to take on Reading in a game some reckon has banana-skin written all over it.

As usual we`ll be running our familiar Match Day Moments thread, in which we invite you to participate.

Please feel free to discuss the starting eleven selected by Rafa Benitez, the action a sit unfolds and your views about the performance, at the final whistle.
