Scouting Report: Reading

17

Carefree Chronic has once again come up with a thorough scouting report on our next opponents. This one details how newly-promoted Reading, Chelsea's midweek guests, played against Stoke City in the 1-1 draw that opened their Premier League campaign. Check the link for more details, but the gist of it is that the Royals play a 4-4-2, and Chelsea will need to respond to it in a different way than they did Wigan's 3-4-3. Against Pavel Pogrebnyak and Adam le Fondre, I'd start Gary Cahill rather than David Luiz -- Reading like to hit the ball up to their forwards, and Cahill's probably our best option in the air. Other than that, it'll be Reading who have to adjust to Chelsea's style of play. Should be fun...
