Chelsea 2-1 MSK Zilina: Malouda And Sturridge Spare Ancelotti’s Blushes

Blues nearly suffer defeat to minnows...

Chelsea’s young team were made to work for all three points against Champions League Group F whipping boys MSK Zilina as both Daniel Sturridge and Florent Malouda saved Carlo Ancelotti’s side from suffering one of the worst embarrassing defeats in their history.

The Stamford Bridge youngsters came out of the traps well, as they passed the ball about, gaining confidence in the opening minutes against the Group F whipping boys. First to look to go towards goal for the Blues was one of the more experienced players, in the shape of Didier Drogba who raced past three defenders before he was blocked from getting a shot on target.

The story is too old to be commented.
