Watch Blackburn vs Chelsea english premiership live stream and highlights

Premiership trailblazers Chelsea will be hoping to race even further away from the pack with a win in lancashire tomorrow as they head to Blackburn. The champions are following on from the end of last season, this season, only missing out on 5 points from the 9 games they've played. They've been untouchable at Stamford Bridge, winning 5 out of the 5 fixtures there they've played, although more mortal away losing and drawing a match. Despite that they've found the net 9 times on the road and only let in 2 goals in the 4 away matches. Chelsea have a pretty proud record at Ewood Park, only losing 1 game in the last 10 seasons (1-0 defeat in 2006) and Blackburn won't be feeling overconfident going into the match today with them also failing to win in 3 games.

It's has been a lacklustre start to the campaign for Blackburn as their usually promising home form has been dented, whilst their away displays have been poor. Only winning once at home and it being on the opening day of the season, they have also only scored 3 times at Ewood. A seemingly bleak look to them trying to net against Chelsea today, with Chelsea only conceding twice in away games. Blackburn will be up against the odds and a victory for them would be a real turn up for the books.

Team news for Rovers sees Christopher Samba back after a suspension layoff received for being sent off against Sunderland and should see him figure in the match today. Sam Allardyce's men will also be looking to start Ryan Nielsen after recent thigh problems. Whilst Steven Nzonzi looks unlikely to figure after bowing out in the first half of the deafeat at Liverpool and Keith Andrews is on the long term absentee list as he has to undergo Groin Surgery.

For Chelsea, they will be encouraged by the return of Alex at the heart of their defence, after the player was ruled out last week in their trip to Wolves because of a thigh strain. John Terry will partner him in central defence. Frank Lampard and Yossi Benayoun are continued absentees with respective hernia and Achilles injuries, though Ancelotti has no other fresh concerns. Ramires should be passed fit after picking up a knock, while Didier Drogba has fully recovered from a virus.
