Not exactly Chelsea’s best match. There was no Juan Mata but there was plenty of Frank Lampard which does not make for pretty viewing. There were two close penalty calls, the first when John Terry seemed to be gang tackled by Ryan Nelsen and then Eden Hazard was brought down by Shaun Wright- Phillips. The first one looked pretty clear cut but the second one seemed more incidental and Hazard seemed to milk it. Victor Moses had a very good debut and
QPR looked more and more composed as the match went on and they had their best chance when Park Ji Sung with the whole goal at his mercy headed straight to Petr Cech. A bit more angle and that would have been QPR celebrating. By the way, Esteban Granero is quite an acquisition. The Real Madrid player was the midfield cog.
