We suppose after beating Barcelona it’s what you would expect.
Fernando Torres – hat trick for Chelsea today
Chelsea smashed QPR at home today and were 1-0 up after 45 seconds through Daniel Sturridge , and 4-0 up after just 25 minutes, and ended up winning the game 6-1 after Cisse got a late goal for QPR.
Chelsea started this game like Wigan did yesterday – like a steam train – and they were just too much for QPR, who couldn’t handle the quick passing Blues, who seem to be back to their best these days.
Fernando Torres also looked very good again, and his new found confidence saw him score a great hat-trick. and four goals in his last two games.
We hope he’s rested on Wednesday, although that could mean Didier Drogba starts, so maybe not.
The win takes Chelsea to 61 points and just one point behind Newcastle, but of course their goal difference is much better than Newcastle’s.
It will be a very tough game for Newcastle on Wednesday night, but one thing we can be sure of – Newcastle players will be ready for this game at Stamford Bridge, unlike yesterday.
Chelsea play the FA Cup just three days after the Newcastle game, but they have a much stronger squad than ours, and the fringe players in the Chelsea team this afternoon all looked very good.
For QPR on the other hand, the game was a disaster, because with Wigan beating Newcastle 4-0 yesterday, that’s a 9 goal swing in their goal differences, and that could decide which team gets relegated this season.
QPR remain 4th bottom of the league and level on points with Bolton, but the London side have a better goal difference, but Bolton also have a game in hand.
It will be a good test for Newcastle on Wednesday evening, and that’s how they should take the game – as a test of just how good we are against a Chelsea side good enough to get to the final of the Champions League.
If Newcastle can stay close to Chelsea, the London club have conceded more goals than any other club this season in the last 15 minutes of their games, so we could maybe nick it at the end – maybe.
Tottenham take on Blackburn at White Hart Lane next, so let’s hope Rovers are in better form than QPR were today – Spurs are currently 3 points behind the Magpies and a win will take them above Newcastle.
