I predicted that this would be Chelsea’s return to winning, but wasn’t quite sure how many they would be able to score. Fernando Torres may finally be getting his confidence back as he added another brace to his two goal performance in their midweek Champions League match.
Sunderland continue to flounder near the bottom of the table and Martin O’Neill’s tenure with the Black Cats may come to an end sooner rather than later if this keeps up. I suppose the one positive for them to take from this is that they did manage to score a goal.
