Chelsea vs Bolton by Mrgol

For the Blues out Alex, Zhirkov and Benayoun, in doubt Anelka, and this is a bad news for an attack that scored only four times in last six matches. Six matches in Premeir in which they haven't won, so now they are fifth in table, only two points over Bolton.

Bolton had only 19 first teams players in last match, but they won and their new absence is Yong Lee (midf. 18atts+1 2 goals), unavailable because called for Asian Cup, so this is an absence that is well know by the team, so i think that they have already someone to cope in the best way him. In doubt def.. Steinsson (14atts. 1 goal), while the four longterm injuried are not important.

So, both teams are in a delicate situation: Bolton is making a good season, but they make atransfer against a strong team, with the best home defense in league (only four goals against at home), but in a bad moment, that has great problems to score and with a key attacker in doubt.

So, i think that Bolton will try to defend, knowing these problems in Chelsea in this moment.

And Bolton is not a team that usually away make matches rich of goals. Away they have 2-4-3 11/13, but only two of these matches finished in over, one against Arsenal, they lost 4-1 but was in september.

In last four matches only a match finished in over for them, and at home.

On the other front, it is sure that Chelsea needs a win, but they have the attacking problems that i described above, that could be increased by a conservative approach to the game of the opponent and by the fact that they could be also more tired, having played on 27th of december.

So, i think in a match quite boring, that probably will finish in a no scoring draw or with a minimum win for Chelsea.
