Which Team Will Destroy Chelsea's Immaculate Home League Record?

I alluded to it during this week’s EPL Talk Podcast interview with The Daily Telegraph’s Henry Winter, but I believe Chelsea’s record of unbeaten home matches in the league is about to end. The question, is, who will manage to beat them.Their home matches in the league between now and the end of the season are Blackburn, Middlesbrough, Sheffield United, Spurs, Man United, Bolton and Everton.While the Blues have the advantage of having easier opponents at home between now and the end of the season, the last four matches will be their hardest stretch. Spurs, who are rather inconsistent of late, beat Chelsea in the fixture at White Hart Lane. Man United should have beaten Chelsea at Old Trafford except for Mourinho’s smart tactical move at half-time by reverting Essien to right back. Meanwhile Bolton and Everton should be tricky matches.Depending on how far Chelsea gets into the Champions League will have an impact on their Premiership results. After the first tie against Porto in late February, Chelsea play away at Manchester City, so there’s no concern for the weary Chelsea legs there. In the return tie against Porto in March, Chelsea faces a 10 day break before they play in the Premiership again. So again, no worries there, but it’s only going to get harder if Chelsea can overcome Porto.Looking at the home fixture list for Chelsea in the league for the remainder of this season, which club(s) do you think can beat Chelsea at home and why? Pick from Blackburn, Middlesbrough, Sheffield United, Spurs, Man United, Bolton and Everton.
