Today was a mixed bag of emotions for my Chelsea team. Currently one season in and a treble win last season (with a 7-1 Champions league Final defeat to Bayern Munich) and at the moment I find my team out of the League Cup with a shocking 4-0 loss to Everton, into the F.A Cup 4th round courtesy of a Chelsea youth player (Smith) and four points clear at the top of the league.
Played what looks to be an easy win away to a poor Sunderland team. Unfortunately that was not be the case, which started with a harsh sending off of Matic late in the 1st half but was still 2-0 thanks to top scorer Costa (26). Then he grabs a third early in the second half and substitutions are made around the 65 minute mark. Then Sunderland started playing and pulled a goal, then another and with 5 minutes left to play they equalise.
Classic FIFA screaming moment, I wish we had the ability to do the hair-dryer treatment to my players!
Then I almost pulled off an amazing winner with sub Ramires, as tackles a player and run past the defence on the outside and then makes his way inside crashes a shot off the post, that was to be it…
But we move on and look ahead to a West London derby against QPR at the bridge.
