Bet Live on Powerhouse Chelsea Taking on DerbyPublished December 16, 2014 by Sol FH
Chelsea travel to iPro Stadium to face Derby County, live tonight at 19:45(UK).
Leaders of the prestigious Premier League, Chelsea, are set to take on derby tonight at iPro stadium. The match should be an easy win for the Blues but Derby has proved a tricky team to beat. The Capital One Cup action starts tonight at 19:45 and both teams are seeking to move on to the next round at the other's expense.
Chelsea have been unstoppable in all Premier League competition so far this year but in the last round of the Capital One Cup, they barely squeaked by Shrewsbury after they won by a 2-1 margin. Derby, on the other hand, have taken out Carlisle United, Charlton Athletic, Reading and Fulham so far. Their last match against Fulham was in fact an excellent display of what Derby are capable of, as they beat them 5-2 and are only one point off the top of the table.
Derby have only lost one game at home this season, but lost their last match against Middlesbrough. Chelsea did lose their first game of the season two weeks ago against Newcastle and the Blues are still looking for a four-trophy season, as Mourinho has his squad on pace to realize this goal.
Who’s In, Who’s Out
The home team will be without their defender, Ryan Shotton after he was sent off in their losing campaign last week at Riverside Stadium. Good news for the Blues, as Cesc Fabregas is now available again and Petr Cech should get the start in goal again tonight.
Tale of the Tape
Derby and Chelsea have faced each other a number of times throughout the years, but in all of those games, Derby have lost seven and drawn with the Blues only once. Chelsea are looking hot in all Capital One competition having won 14 out of 16 games, without any losses since 1999.
