Chelsea prepare to entertain Bolton Wanderers at Stamford Bridge at lunchtime on Saturday, looking to continue an impressive record. The Blues are clearly on top, having won 26 and lost only 12 of the 50 games.

The most recent encounter between these two sides at Stamford Bridge was just last season, in October 2005, with Chelsea annihilating their visitors 5-1 in a Premiership match.
