Kick-off: 16.00 (live @ Sky Calcio 3)
Blackburn’s dramatic 3-3 draw at Norwich lifted them off the bottom of the Barclays Premier League table but boss Steve Kean remains under pressure. Rovers were denied all three points by a stoppagetime penalty as they narrowly missed out on picking up just their second win of the season. The record books don’t hold much cheer for the Ewood Park club, who have failed to beat Chelsea in their last 13 meetings. Andre Villas-Boas endured arguably the toughest week of his fledgling managerial career at the end of October. Back-to-back Barclays Premier League defeats meant the Blues’ title bid was thrown into jeopardy. The 5-3 loss at home to London rivals Arsenal left Chelsea nine points adrift of the summit and they will be looking to recapture the form that saw them hammer Bolton 5-1 on their last visit to Lancashire.
