Nigel Baldwin writes: "Great to revive old rivalries with our near neighbours once again, and whilst I anticipate us(Chelsea) winning this one, to be honest, being part Kiwi and given the result at Old Trafford earlier, I don't think anything could upset me today, but come on Blues, make it the perfect week-end....6-1...oh my aching sides!!"
