Our 2012/13 campaign gets underway on Sunday, as the Community Shield is contested between us and Man City, in what should be a great way to kick off the new season.
New boy Marko Marin will miss out, after struggling with a hamstring injury over pre-season. Expect Hazard to be in a front three with Torres and Ramires, as Juan Mata should be rested after his marathon summer, including Euro 2012 and the Olympics.
Man City have both Barry and Richards missing, and expect Silva and Balotelli to be rested, due to them reaching the Euro 2012 final just weeks ago.
The press are widely expecting us to challenge for the Premier League this season, so we will want to get one up on the reigning champions in this first fixture.

As for tomorrow, there could well be goals in it, and the Chelsea and Over 2.5 goals @ 15/4 looks tasty to me, as well as the Draw HT/Chelsea FT @ 6/1

Gary Cahill to score any time @ 11/1
Both Teams to Score @ 4/6
