Venue: Reebok Stadium - Bolton - Lancashire
When: Monday 24th January 2011. Kickoff: 20:00
Competition Barclays PremierLeague

Bolton Team News:
Bolton manager Owen Coyle may have deserted many of former boss Sam Allardyce's tenets, but he used a familiar 4-4-2 formation at the Bridge over Christmas, with Kevin Davies the battering ram and Johann Elmander the sniper. Davies is not the kind of player a youngster such as Jeffrey Bruma would choose to face when making his second start at this level.

Coyle has strengthened his own centre-back pool of Zat Knight and Gary Cahill by signing David Wheater from Middlesbrough. The Yorkshire-born defender scored an own goal in Chelsea's 5-0 thrashing of Boro at the Riverside in 2008.

It was midfielders Matthew Taylor and 19-year-old Rodrigo Moreno, with their elusive running, who caused the Blues' backline problems at the Bridge recently, and Petr Cech had to be on top form to keep them out.

Chelsea Team News:
The injury scares involving John Terry and Frank Lampard were another blow to manager Carlo Ancelotti in a season ravaged by them. It remains to be seen whether one, both or neither them figure at one of their favourite away grounds.

Lampard in particular has enjoyed himself against the Trotters, netting seven times in 11 matches.

Otherwise only Yossi Benayoun, Alex and Yuri Zhirkov remain on the sidelines.
Nicolas Anelka is returning to his old club where he scored 21 in 53 Premier League appearances. He has hit the target in his last two games.


Bolton Stats and Milestones:
  • The Trotters are currently seventh and have taken just one point from the last 12.
  • They have the seventh best home record in the division with 20 points out of a possible 33 with wins against Stoke, Tottenham, Newcastle, Blackburn and West Brom, draws with Fulham, Birmingham, Man Utd, Blackpool and Wigan and just one defeat to Liverpool.
  • Wanderers have not won any of the 10 games they have conceded the first goal.
  • Bolton have conceded 303 fouls this season which is the most in the Barclays Premier League. Kevin Davies has conceded the most as an individual - 70
  • Coyle's side have only kept two clean sheets in the Premier League in 23 matches, both of which have been at the Reebok against Fulham and West Brom.
  • Captain Kevin Davies, Johan Elmander, Zat Knight and Fabrice Muamba have been ever present in the Premier League this term.
Chelsea Stats and Milestones:
  • Chelsea are looking for a first away win since their 2-1 victory at Blackburn at the end of October. They have suffered four defeats (five including Marseille) and two draws since then.
  • No team has conceded fewer league goals than Chelsea's 19. They have kept back-to-back clean sheets for the first time since October.
  • The Blues have won three, drawn four and lost five of their last 12 league games.
  • Ancelotti's side have the eighth best away record in the division with 12 points out of a possible 33 on their travels with victories at Wigan, West Ham and Blackburn, draws at Aston Villa, Newcastle and Tottenham and defeats to Man City, Liverpool, Birmingham, Arsenal and Wolves.
  • Chelsea have not lost a league game this season when opening the scoring.
  • The Blues have fallen behind in eight of their last 13 league games and only came back to win on one occasion - at Ewood Park against Blackburn in October.
  • Didier Drogba has had more shots on target than any other Barclays Premier League player - 51
Key Stat:
  • Bolton have not breached Chelsea's net at the Reebok for 11 hours—since Henrik Pedersen managed it in November 2002 during a 1-1 draw.

Possibly a draw at the reebok tonight, maybe 1-1. But got a small, sneaky feeling the Chelsea will sneak it 2-1....but that feeling could be wind.....
