Rant Box: Chelsea v Sunderland

Tough fixture. That's all that really needs to be said about today's trip to Sunderland.

Steve Bruce's renovation project looks solid. And, following a rugged 1-0 result at Bolton to begin the season, the Stadium of Light is certain to be frantic for the the Cats' home opener.

Chelsea, meanwhile, will be looking to improve upon a last-second victory at home to Hull City on Saturday. Chances aplenty, goals few. The diamond, yes, is still a work in progress.

Starting XI

*Need Mikel to gain confidence. Dropping him now could prove detrimental in the long term. Sturridge to find some minutes if Anelka continues to slumber.
