Sunday Derby Day!

It's another huge Sunday in the Premiership today, with two matches that will have a good deal of bearing on the top four. Arsenal notched their requisite win against Burnley yesterday, to put pressure on Chelski at the top today. They kick off against their London rivals QPR, who are scrapping to avoid relegation.

Then there is the big one. Both Citeh and United are now all but guaranteed CL slots for next season. So, is this just about bragging rights today. No - the Derby is always about much more than that, isn't it. Spend your morning on the LOB, won't you?

Here we go, lads. Jose Mourinho has made some fascinating changes for today. Didier Drogba comes in to replace the injured Diego Costa (sniff). He's also risking both Cesc and Matic who are both a yellow card away from suspension at a time when Chelski have Arsenal and United to play. Cesc will also play with a Phantom mask due to a facial injury. How soon before Joey Barton rattles into him?

Good morning , Bob. I'm here to join you for Derby Day. First, what appears to be a dull West London Derby, followed by the Manc Derby.

8:29 AM

They're off in an Evil West London Derby.

Morning, MUR - great to have you on board for this critical day in the season.

8:31 AM

So, it's a beautiful London Day in what should be anything but a beautiful match

Cheers mate. It's great to be chatting with you today

Great atmosphere at Loftus Road this afternoon. This is in many ways the more important of the two matches today - at both ends of the table.

8:34 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

I read your post. The Manc Derby will also be significant because the winner is more likely to have an automatic CL slot while the loser is more likely to lock up the Arsene Wenger Trophy and an unwanted playoff match in August. A draw does not suit either team

How was your Saturday evening, mate? We took in a student production of the musical "Hair" with a couple of good friends.

8:35 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

It looks as if the only quality from QPR is going to come through bad boy Joey Barton. Clint Hill with a pedestrian lob into Courtois' arms.

8:37 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

That is true, especially QPR. Should they get an upset victory then they move out of the drop zone and will be replaced by Brucie's Boys.

8:37 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

It will be fascinating to see how Drogs gets on today. With the loss of Costa and Remy this week, Chelski are running out of strikers.

Oh - off the post!

It was a busy Saturday evening, cooking dinner, cleaning , and getting ready for the trip to the in-laws. Once the girls went to bed then I drank Montejo, a Mexican beer new to the U.S.

8:39 AM

Some really ping pongy action right now. Chelski trying to settle it.

8:39 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

How was the play? I bet it was outstanding.

8:39 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

I'll have to look out for that new beer.

8:39 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

I think Matty Phillips can be a thorn in Chelsea's side. The former Tangerine has been a danger man since Chris Ramsey became the manager. Keep an eye on him.

8:40 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Austin caught Courtois as he tried to run onto the through ball. Didn't seem malicious, though.

8:41 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Should have been called as a backpass to Rob Green there - ref missed it.

8:41 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

They said that Chelsea have an eighteen year old striker on the bench. It could be dad and son.

8:41 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

I think it was. The refs are biased towards Chelsea.

8:42 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Will do, mate. I have to admit I don't Phillips at all as a player.

8:42 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Very tight at the bottom now, with Leicester having picked a second win on the trot.

8:43 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Fred says that Sunderland must be called the Black Cats because they like to take cat naps. Is he correct?

8:44 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

It sure is . The Foxes could be safe at the end of the season.

8:45 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

I read on FB that you saw the play. I have always wanted to watch it. You must have liked the play, but not the name.

8:46 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

The QPR midfielders really snapping into the likes of Willian, Cesc and Hazard. They know the creative danger men.

8:46 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Naughty by Matty Phillips on Azpi.

8:47 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

I tried not to take the title track on the show personally.

8:47 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

CSC picked out Matic well but the shot was blocked.

8:47 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Matic has a shot blocked off a short free kick from the Phantom of the Opera.

8:48 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Sorry mate. I was giving you a little stick.

Isla pumps a hopeful free kick into the box. QPR are playing prehistoric football here.

Cahill heads out a cross from Matty Phillips for a corner.

8:49 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

QPR and Villa did on Tuesday too. Ramires heads away the corner.

8:50 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Fred is here for the action. He is still recovering from yet another home thrashing .

8:51 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Ivanovic giving Drogba some stick. AH! The tension of a title run-in.

8:53 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Well, if Fred didn't kip through every Sunderland match, the Black Cats not be relegation threatened. I blame him.

8:53 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

If QPR get anything today, Gooner is going to start to dream.

8:53 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Matty Phillips has a cross easily caught by Courtois.

8:54 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

The winner of the Manc Derby will too.

8:55 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Too many Sunderland players have napped too often this season too. An Aging back four and a cumbersome striking partnership doesn't help matters.

8:56 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

How is that not a penalty as Hill wrestles Matic at that set piece?

8:57 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

They must practice long throws in Serbia as Ivanovic aimed for Matic , who was wrestled to the ground by Clint Hill as it went out for a goal kick.

8:57 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Then the Prem sides wonder why they can't adjust to playing in the CL and EL where they don't let players get away with this nonsense.

8:58 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Now Courtois is going long ball. QPR are having an effect on Chelsea's game for sure.

8:58 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Fred is stretched out full length getting strokes. Despite the loss, he has been a good boy, so why not?

8:59 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Chelski are trying to play their pretty little patterns but it's not really coming off.

8:59 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

They sure are. It's rare for Chelsea to take long throws.

8:59 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Ramires volleys wide off a cross from Drogba.

9:00 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

The breakthrough might have to come from a set piece. Chelski have plenty of weapons even from the central defenders.

9:01 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

I think Chelsea will grind out a one goal victory as they have most of the season. It hasn't been pretty , but has been effective.

9:04 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

The QPR fans are giving JT plenty of stick today.

9:05 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

It sounds as if Arsenal did just that yesterday at Turf Moor.

9:07 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

That's expected, even though Anton Ferdinand isn't around any more. He's got previous with this ground.

Cahill tackles Zamora for a corner after a sliding tackle by JT.

9:07 AM

Zamora nearly got onto that one - cleared out well by Cahill.

Matic heads out a cross from Karl Henry for another corner.

9:08 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Oh - Sandro had a free header from that corner. The ball was a bit under him but he should have still put it on target.

9:09 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Sandro heads over a great corner from Matty Phillips. It looks like Ramires got the last touch

9:09 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

The difference is that the Gunners dominated , but didn't put away their chances. Chelsea is not really dominating.

9:10 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

No love lost as Charlie Austin pushes down JT.

9:10 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Not much in that challenge between Charlie Austin and Cahill.

9:12 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

That was definitely a foul by Ivanovic on Austin . Why did it take so long to make the call?

9:13 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Courtois does well to push away a long range effort from Charlie Austin.

9:14 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

A lot of effort but not a lot of quality in this one, as the half wraps up.

Oh - Cesc had a chance from a bouncing ball that he should have been able to nod home.

9:15 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

A minute of stoppage time as Drogba misses the cross from Ivanovic and Fabs heads over.

It's 0-0 at the half of this West London Derby as struggling QPR have made it difficult for the league leaders.

Cheers UWS. It will be a great occasion. I will go for walkies once this match ends.

I was about to welcome UWS but he's off again like the Scarlet Pimpernel. Crikey!

Talk about tasty: That cross from Matty Phillips needed a touch from Bobby Zamora.

I'm waiting till the end of this match for walkies. Shadow must go for quite a distance.

9:37 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

More handbags between Austin and Courtois now.

9:38 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

QPR have a free kick and that danger man. Matty Phillips is about to take. It's headed out and Clint Hill forces a save from Courtois. Why not? He scored his first career Prem goal at Villa Park in midweek. He's confident now.

9:38 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

A poor cross from Joey Barton, to the dismay of Charlie Austin.

9:39 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

According to the announcer, Matty Phillips has been capped by Scotland despite being born in Aylesbury.

9:39 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

The ball breaks to Drogba , who has a shot land in Row M. Lucky fan

9:40 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Jose may want to add speed to the back four . There's a young defender that can really zoom back.

9:41 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Jose has consulted Sesame Street as Oscar the Grouch is about to come on.

9:42 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Ivanovic was trying to buy a booking for Barton there.

9:43 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Joey Barton has a good point. Ivanovic was barely touched.

9:43 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Oscar coming on now for Ramires.

9:43 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

A Brazi swap as Oscar is on for Ramires and Fab should move back to cover. An attacking move/

9:43 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

A really scrappy match now - Andre Marriner could help out matters by booking a few players.

9:44 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

A draw would put QPR one pint behind Brucey's lads and two points behind Fred's team.

9:44 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Andre Marriner is sparse with the cards because Easter was last Sunday

9:45 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Oscar gets away with a poor corner as it's cleared out for another by the first man. The next one is better as it goes through a crowd of players

9:46 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Drogs gets the booking that was coming. I would imagine that the floodgates will open now.

9:47 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Just as the Doc ordered. There is finally a booking as Drogba fouls Sandro from behind.

9:47 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

I still think Jose will be pleased with a 1-0 victory.

9:48 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

OH!!! Courtois superbly turns a shot from Matty Phillips around the post off a pass from Charlie Austin/

9:51 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Have you been keeping an eye on Matty Phillips?

9:51 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Courtois is keeping Chelski alive in this one.

9:53 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

High and wide by Sandro. Chelsea will let him shoot all day.

9:53 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

I have been - very lively. I agree with Graeme Le Saux, though. He should have buried that shot past Courtois.

9:54 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Willian is just running into trouble - he should be pulled off. Chelski need a wide option.

9:55 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Ever since Chris Ramsey took over, he's been their focal point. He didn't get much of a look in with Harry .

9:56 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

OUCH!!! Jones and Smalling start in the center of defense. I hope Citeh don't take advantage of that.

9:58 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Great picture of Ivanovic getting stick from the home fans as he was taking a long throw. He seemed to enjoy it as there is not much distance between the fans and the pitch.

10:01 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Bobby Zamora is booked for a foul from behind on Azpi. That's one booking a piece for each team. Each one has been for a foul from behind from a striker.

10:02 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Sando is booked for a push on fellow Brazi, Oscar after horribly giving away possession in midfield.

10:05 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

JT has a header come off Sandro for a corner off a free kick from Zoro.

10:05 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Joey Barton heads away the corner from Zoro.

10:06 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Still - none of the threatened players booked.

10:06 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Cuadrado coming on for the ineffectual Willian, just as the doc ordered.

10:07 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Clint Hill is down after an awkward tumble. Jose continues to follow doctor's orders as Willian is replaced by Cuadrado.

10:07 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

Krnacjar is on for Sandro, who was just booked.

10:07 AM

Terrible goal kick from Rob Green there set Chelski up on a plate. Sloppy stuff. Hazard set up Cesc beautifully and Cesc side footed home coolly.

0-1!

10:15 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

A huge goal at the top and bottom of the Prem. Chelsea will move back to 7 points up. QPR will stay in the drop zone.

10:16 AM  
Blogger United We Stand said...

This could have been a title race if Chelsea didn't score that
They still have to play United and Arsenal... it could have been close

10:16 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

What have QPR got in reserve - not a lot, I suspect.

Three minutes of stoppage time to be played.

10:17 AM  
Blogger manunitedrules said...

The first time Hazard has been a threat and it pays dividends for Chelsea , who appear to have ground out another result. three minutes of stoppage time.

10:17 AM  
Blogger The Blue Devil said...

Mourinho's gamble with playing Cesc and Matic has paid off in spades today - both navigated the match without picking up a suspension and Cesc has scored what looks like the winner. He's coming off now.

10:18 AM

I don't think there is enough time for QPR due to their lack of reserves.

The ball from LUFC Academy to Silva made that one. Silva merely had to pick out Aguero once he's been found on that run.

It's really pathetic defending by United . I stated my concerns when I saw that Jones and Smalling were starting in the center of defense , What is LVG thinking?
