Premier League: Chelsea vs. Blackburn Rovers


Chelsea takes on Blackburn Rovers at Stamford Bridge tonight after a comfortable 4-0 win against Atletico Madrid in the UEFA Champions League on Wednesday.

With Manchester United not competing until Sunday, the Blues can go top of the Premier League with a victory to Blackburn.

Overall, the west Londoners have had an impressive season, having won all four home games and scoring ten goals and conceding just one. In spite of their losses against Wigan and Aston Villa, they are believed to be the top contenders for the EPL crown.

But tonight they are without injured Jose Bosingwa and Yuri Zhirkov, while Alex and John Mikel Obi lack match fitness.

The match kicks-off at 17:30 BST (12:30 pm ET).

UPDATE: Frank Lampard scored twice as Chelsea soared back to the top of the Premier League with a comprehensive 5-0 victory over Blackburn.
