Premier League: Chelsea vs. Bolton Wanderers Live Stream (Free Online Video)
Chelsea vs. Bolton Free Live Stream: Bolton Wanderers will be looking to avenge their 1-0 defeat at Stamford Bridge last month when they face defending Premier League champions Chelsea at the Reebok Stadium tonight.
“We have been in terrific form at the Reebok and we have to make sure on Monday we come out on the right side of these margins,” manager Owen Coyle told reporters. “If that happens it’s a game I believe we can win.”
Bolton has not won a single match since the Blues last defeated them, and the Trotters, who are currently 9th in the standings with 30 points, are expected to bounce back after a terrible run of form. Carlo Ancelotti’s side, meanwhile, have not been beaten in their last 15 visits to the Reebok, a period during which they have won 12 times. However, the Blues go into the match trailing leaders Manchester United by 10 points, having lost six times this season.
Frank Lampard did not travel with the rest of the squad for tonight’s fixture. The 32-year-old playmaker has a calf problem and his absence will serve as a big blow to fans who had hoped the England international would be available in Horwich.
Chelsea remains without Alex (knee), Yuri Zhirkov (calf) and Yossi Benayoun (Achilles). There are also question marks over the fitness of John Terry after he picked up a back problem in training, but the 30-year-old centre back has made the trip with the rest of his teammates. Ancelotti will also probably be without John Obi Mikel but Nicolas Anelka is set to return.
Bolton forward Ivan Klasnic and defender Gretar Steinsson are doubtful through injury while winger Lee Chung-Yong is on international duty at the Asian Cup with South Korea.
The match kicks-off at 20:00 London time.
UPDATE: Chelsea won 4-0 at Bolton, thanks to goals from Didier Drogba, Florent Malouda, Nicolas Anelka and Ramires. The victory leaves the defending champions seven points behind leaders Manchester United.
