Petrov Delighted With Defensive Edge

Stiliyan Petrov is delighted with the signings of Collins and Dunne, especially for the threat they bring from set pieces.

In our last two games our centre halves have chipped in with goals from dead ball situations, and it's been a threat we have lacked since the unfortunate injury to Martin Laursen.

This is of course also ignoring how much stronger we look in defence because of their additions.

Speaking to the official site, our Captain said:

'Set-pieces are a big thing in football and we try to use them as much as we can.

'We know how good James and Ashley are at delivering the ball so we've just got to be more aggressive attacking the ball.

'We have got players that can do that and it has been paying off.'

I gotta say Carlo ancelotti (?) has been paying Villa the highest complement you can in football...He says Chelsea played well and lost...that says more about Villa than it does Chelsea. If Chelsea play poorly and lose well it's down to them...but not last Saturday...that was very much down to us...get my point?....Thank you Carlo
