Premier League: Chelsea vs. Blackburn Rovers Live Stream (Free Online Video)
Chelsea vs. Blackburn Free Live Stream: Chelsea will try to get their Premier League title defense back on track when they meet Blackburn Rovers at Stamford Bridge this afternoon.
The Blues are currently fifth in the standings and are nine points behind leaders Manchester United having played a game more. However, Carlo Ancelotti’s men seemed to have returned to their former selves when they delivered a 7-0 thrashing to Ipswich in the FA Cup. And a victory against Blackburn will see Chelsea leapfrog Tottenham into 4th place, before the Spurs host the Red Devils on Sunday.
“The team lost some confidence in their play but I think we have the capacity to come back to play as well as we did last year,” Ancelotti told reporters.
Blackburn, meanwhile, are currently 10th in the EPL with 28 points and will want to stay out of the relegation zone. Steve Kean’s side will be boosted by new signing Roque Santa Cruz who returns to the club after two years at Manchester City.
The 29-year-old Paraguayan striker has struggled to fit in at Eastlands since being signed by former City boss Mark Hughes in 2009. “I feel like I am coming home,” Santa Cruz told the Blackburn website on Friday. “This has been the easiest decision of my career.”
The match kicks-off at 15:00 GMT.
UPDATE: Second-half goals from Branislav Ivanovic and Nicolas Anelka secured Chelsea’s 2-0 victory over Blackburn to revive the West Londoners’ Premier League campaign.
