Chelsea defeat was entirely predictable...

With the danger of appearing to detract from Werder Bremen's win over Chelsea in the Champions league on Wednesday, I have to say that the goal Chelsea conceded to the German side was very out of character, as you don't often see poor marking and free headers inside the Chelsea penalty area. Added to which key players like Lampard weren't on duty.

Chelsea didn't look to be playing 100% full out all of the time, whether or not that was the pre-match team orders is open to question. IF Jose had told his players to take it easy, then you can sort of understand it as Barcelona remain the biggest threat to Chelsea winning the CL and so disposing of their biggest rivals before the serious knock-out stage started would be most agreeable. Not forgetting Chelsea face Manchester United on Sunday at Old Trafford which should be interesting, but I cannot see United getting any more than a point from this game.
