For some reason I was certain this was kicking off at half 12 until I was flicking through the Metro on train back and came across the fixtures for week ahead.

The poster who asked about pubs in area and going down by coach must've been wondering what on earth I was on about saying the coaches would probably leave VP at 8am!๐Ÿ˜‚

Will Kamara be back? I thought he was still injured?

Diego Carlos is back, was on the bench against Bournemouth. Will he be in the starting 11?

Looking forward to this one. Feeling quite confident. Mistakes have cost us in the last few games against Chelsea I just hope we can play a near perfect game without giving easy goals away and playing the way Emery wants the players to play.ย 

It's ridiculous some of the goals we've given away in recent times v them when we've been well in the game.ย 

Last season's away game we completely outplayed them first half but Ollie missed 2-3 really good chances. Then Mings completely underhits a routine backpass right at the start of the second and it's game over. He's been in good form recently and certainly Chelsea is game he should be up for given the misplaced header in the VP game.

There's no way either Kepa will play like he did at VP either, that was a once a career performance so I think we should have a goal in us at some point.

I think some are being optimistic that we'll go there, constantly attack and outplay them. I think we'll play it like we did away to Spurs and Emery's formation should match up well against how Potter plays so feels like we have a good chance of 1-1 here if we're not reckless at the back.

Woke up in the middle of the night thinking about the game Saturday, my first concern was which waterproof jacket is going to match my claret and blue trainers best as it will likely hose it down -ย  and secondly -ย  I'm really worried that because absolutely nobody is expecting it and this is football after all that we're going to get a pasting and everyone will be waxing lyrical about Chelsea. Mudryk, Felix and all their other new signings who have been criticised by the media and football Twitter will score and it will be horrible. So therefore, because no-one I've seen has, I'm going to say 4-0 to Chelsea!

I know what you mean. Whilst I'm looking forward to going to the game, I'm also wary that there's a lot of confident talk knocking about from our fans. Which in itself is fine, except they do have some very good players and they are bound to click at some point.

History tells us that in such cases, it's usually against Villa.

A draw here would be a good result.

Would be a tough game to throw him into for his first game back though, he would have had to have trained to an unbelievable level to start.

If we go toe to toe....we might come unstuck.

If we go cautious and patient, we may catch them on the counter, i think that is our best strategy.

I love it when we set the traps for the oppositionย 

Wolves under Nuno in the inception years were very good at it.ย
