Chelsea vs Reading, Open Thread
Chelsea’s game against Reading was originally scheduled for Saturday, September 1, but due to Chelsea playing in the UEFA Super Cup next week against Atletico Madrid, the Blues moved their match to tonight in front of a large crowd at Stamford Bridge (live on ESPN2 and ESPN3.com at 2:45pm ET today).
While Reading got their first Premier League points Saturday in their 1-1 draw against Stoke City, Brian McDermott’s team faces a very tough challenge to go to Stamford Bridge to come back with anything. On the other hand, it’ll be a good opportunity for us to see how Chelsea’s firepower does up front for the Blues. Reading likes to play a up-and-at ‘em style of football, so Chelsea’s back four will certainly have their hands full today.
