STAMFORD BRIDGE HOSTS UNDER-21S THIS SUNDAY
Our Under-21s are back in action this Sunday (6 October) when we take on Manchester City at Stamford Bridge, with tickets for the game now on general sale (maximum 10 per person) priced £5 for adults and £3 for juniors and concessions.
Dermot Drummy will be looking for a response from his side after we allowed a two-goal lead to slip away against Everton last week , conceding three goals after the break to lose 3-2.
Prior to the reverse at Goodison, however, the young Blues had been in fine form, winning three consecutive matches and scoring 11 goals in the process.
For the visitors, it's been a disappointing start to the campaign, with City only winning once from their opening five matches, a 3-0 home victory against Everton.
In their last game they were beaten 2-0 at home by Liverpool, and they will undoubtedly be looking to bounce back when they visit west London.
Drummy is anticipating an exciting game and encouraged supporters to come along.
'It's always a great experience for the boys when they play at Stamford Bridge,' he says.
'Manchester City will provide a tough test because they, like us, play an attacking brand of football, so it should be a really good game.
'The supporters should come along and get behind the players because it really will be a top-level game between two very strong sides.
'Patrick Vieira is in charge of their side so I'm really looking forward to testing myself against him.'
The match kicks off at 11.05am and will be broadcast live on Chelsea TV.
Tickets can be bought from the Stamford Bridge box office, online or via the call centre on 0871 984 1905 and must be purchased by 5pm tomorrow (Friday).
