Will this be Carlo Ancelotti’s last game in charge? The double winning coach of last season will be disappointed with how the season has finished.
In November, it looked like it was going to be another good year for the Blues, instead they have finished with nothing.
Chelsea had led the table by 12 points at one points, a win today will mean they finish with just 74 points – which is their worst since 2003. Despite scoring six goals in their first two games against Wigan and West Brom they have only gone on to score 69 for the season – Not very good when you think the side last season impressed with 103.
Previous managers Claudio Ranieri and Avram Grant both went close to winning the Champions League, yet were sacked for finishing the season having not won anything.
It will be a nervy few weeks for Carlo ….
Team News …
The Blues will be without Yossi Benayoun and Ramires who are both struggling with with hamstring problems, this adds the long-term injured Jose Bosingwa who has not played since April due to a knee injury.
Carlo Ancelotti may play youngsters Ryan Bertrand and Jose McEachran so give them some first team expereince.
Everton tried to appeal Diniyar Bilyaletdinov’s sending off against West Brom but failed so he will be banned and Australian Tim Cahill is doubtful.Marouane Fellaini and Louis Saha will both miss out with ankle injuries.
