Fletcher`s Chelsea Comparison
It`s interesting to view a few comments, attributed to Darren Fletcher, relating to our next opponents, Chelsea.
Darren, who has just come back from his debilitating has noticed, just like many, that Chelsea have adopted a new style of football since capturing the Champions League trophy last season.
He`s noticed that gone are the days when they were reliant on sheer power with Drogba leading the line and that they`ve now opted for a different style, or as Darren put succinctly puts it,
"They used to be a big, strong physical side."
"Now you are facing more Barcelona-like players."
"They have small intricate players who get in the pockets behind you and they play killer passes."
"It will be a new challenge."
Is it a challenge we can overcome?
Only if we don`t give them a head-start which has been something of a tradition for us this season, so far!
