Chelsea stumbled during this time of the year last season. After two away defeats are they going down the same road?

They will make a comeback, if they will get their act right. they are loosing their will to win. Because of distractions to most of their players. We will gonna see them on a winning tack again, that's what i think. It is still early to say if they will stink this season, cause most of the time they like to get it on in the end.

You mentioned that their players are distracted. What do you mean by that?

The distraction during off season that carry over through the season. Things like players wanting to sign with other teams. Drogba playing with the national team, things like that create distraction. go blue!

Hard to say. Maybe the international duty is making their players tired. I think they will bounce back. The duo of Drogba and Anelka is extremely powerful, with Drogba's strength and Anelka's pace. Chelsea is looking good so far, unlike Liverpool. Liverpool is a disaster now. Chelsea will pull through this. They have a strong squad and a good manager.

Actually you can't really say that international duty is the issue for this match. The African players did not play in mid-week. The Portuguese player did not have to travel cause both their games were in Portugal. Cech did not play. Only Terry and Lampard had a legit excuse to say that they were tired. Having said that, I fully expect Chelsea to bounce back. They look fantastic on paper. From what I have seen, I won't say they look good, cause they do look extremely shaky at the back. Even teams like Stoke and Wigan are able to exploit their inability to deal with crosses. But Ancelotti is an experience coach, he'll be able to put things right.

No way.Anceloti is way better than scholari. Scholari was never aclub coach, he was better off with coaching national teams.

I don't like Ancelotti honestly but I love Chelsea. Chelsea hired him for aiming the UCL trophy this season. As a fan, i can do nothing except to support him as much as possible. I expect Don Carletto wouldn't be another Scolari.
