This afternoon, Chelsea entertain Cardiff City, at Stamford Bridge, in a Premier League fixture.
The game brings Neil Warnock to Stamford Bridge as the opposition manager, if matters had of been different, way back in the last century, Warnock may well have enjoyed a spell as the boss of the club.
However, Warnock turned the opportunity down, I wonder if it is a decision he regrets?
Ahead of the game, a fixture in which our current boss, Maurizio Sarri, will be looking to make it five wins out of five, in the Premier League, Warnock, at his pre-match press conference, and as reported by the BBC, has spoken about the difficult task his side face in coming to SW6:
“I wish we had got Hazard to be honest.
“He’s an unbelievable player You don’t look at the top six teams and think that will decide if we stay in the Premier League or not.
“I want to try and do the best we can against those teams, not just in defending but attacking as well. It’s alright talking about it, but if Hazard Willian, Pedro have a good day there’ll beat anyone.”
Yes, we will but in remaining unbeaten there have been times when our defence has looked a bit shaky, something Warnock is looking to capitalise on:
“We’ve got good players, we’ve got more goals in the side now. And it’s a matter of taking our chances. If you saw the Arsenal game, we had some great chances.”
It has, we reckon, all the makings of a decent game.
Bring it on!
