Andre Villas-Boas is still on thin ice, and he needs to start winning regularly. Chelsea are looking for good results every week, but they haven't lived up to that expectation in 2012.
With the upcoming schedule, the opponent and their biggest competitors playing well, Chelsea need this win badly. A loss or a draw could be devastating to Chelsea.
There are multiple reasons Chelsea need to win this match, and I have made a list of the five biggest reasons (in no particular order).
As always, feel free to let me know what you think about the reasons, or if you don't think this match is even that important.
