How did Chelsea, two-time defending Premiership champions, give up two goals in the last 10 minutes of the game against Middlesbrough? By, astonishingly, not being able to defend crosses and long balls into their penalty area. Khalid Boulahrouz should make sure that his boots are polished on Sunday because my guess is that he will be in the starting XI at Ewood Park. He can't do any worse than Ricardo Carvalho. That reminds me, what's William Gallas up to these days?
