Promising injury news ahead of Chelsea game

Add comment November 29th, 2008

Ahead of tomorrow’s clash with Chelsea, the news that Emmanuel Adebayor, Samir Nasri, and Bacary Sagna are all available for selection is a significant boost.  With our attack having looked somewhat toothless in recent weeks, the return of Adebayor in particular couldn’t come at a better time: when he has been in the side, we’ve averaged 2.3 goals per game.  When he hasn’t been present in our Champions League or Premiership line-up, we’ve mustered a paltry 0.76 goals per game.  Hopefully he’s fit enough to give John Terry a torrid afternoon.

If Adebayor had left, we might have ended up with Salomon Kalou as his replacement.  Thank God we didn’t.  Kalou is exceptionally talented but equally infuriating, and his failure to establish himself ahead of the woeful Florent Malouda speaks volumes.

Chelsea’s team news sees them without Didier Drogba, which ought to be a relief when you consider how much trouble he’s caused us in the past.  However, there’s only one thing more painful than Didier Drogba scoring against you: Nicolas Anelka scoring against you.  I’m crossing everything that he stumbles down the steps coming off the coach and is unable to play, just to avoid that possibility.

This is just a brief update, really.  Tomorrow there’ll be a full preview, hopefully with some views from the Chelsea fans’ perspective.  Till then.
