  • Wow...Reading's manager is a great choicer!!!! Le Fondre 2 Goals, Akpan 2 Assists..both of them are substitutes

  • reading no chance to shot??just what strong chelsea's deff??

  • Reading are having a good run of form and won't be such a strool for Chelsea as the bookmakers are suggesting. Expecting Chelsea to grind out a 2-1 victory.

  • I don't think Reading should be a problem for Chelsea, but we'll see.

  • Chelsea should win by 2 goals

  • 1-1 draw
