Chelsea vs. Everton

Recommended Posts

From BBC Sport

Chelsea will be WITHOUT Andriy Shevchenko, Michael Ballack, Didier Drogba, Ricardo Carvalho, Arjen Robben and Scott Sinclair for the game.

Midfielder Frank Lampard and goalkeeper Petr Cech, who were rested against Manchester United, should return.

Everton striker Andrew Johnson will have a late fitness test but his injured ankle is unlikely to be risked.

Teenage strikers James Vaughan and Victor Anichebe are likely to continue up front in an unchanged side.

Chelsea (from): Cech, Cudicini, Drogba, Hilario, Geremi, Ferreira, Terry, Essien, A Cole, Bridge, Morais, Obi, Diarra, Makelele, Lampard, Kalou, Wright-Phillips, J Cole, Sahar, Hutchinson, Sawyer.

Everton (from): Howard, Neville, Yobo, Stubbs, Lescott, Arteta, Carsley, Osman, Fernandes, Vaughan, Anichebe, Turner, Naysmith, Beattie, McFadden, Hibbert, Van der Meyde, De Franca, Vidarsson, Valente.

Mark Lawrenson's prediction: 2-1

EDIT: Updated squad listings.

Ok, it's a meaningless game when it comes to Premiership standings and we probably want to rest some players for the big cup final, but to field just six players who are more or less injured and to play without a goalkeeper? Come on! 106.gificon_lol.gif

That's ALSO copied directly from BBC Sport, but more recently. Seems you're not the only one who'd noticed. aXe.gif

P.S. I hear the BBC are looking for proofreaders.

Robben has a good chance of being fit too I heard. He may have glass legs, but when he's got defenders on the back foot and he doesn't end up in his backside, he is a threat.

Hopefully after two seasons of averageness [due mainly to injury to be fair], next season will be HIS season, just ban him from playing with Holland.

Only if we've got a 2 goal or more cushion, don't want the unbeaten home game run to end before we've well and truely smash the record just so a couple of kids can play [i am usually all for youth/reserves players playing more games nut not at home at the moment icon_wink.gif ]

Chelsea will line-up in a 4-3-3 formation as follows:

1 Petr Cech

20 Paulo Ferreira

9 Khalid Boulahrouz

26 John Terry ©

18 Wayne Bridge

24 Shaun Wright-Phillips

12 Mikel John Obi

8 Frank Lampard

10 Joe Cole

11 Didier Drogba

21 Salomon Kalou

Substitutes: 40 Hilario, 51 Sam Hutchinson, 33 Nuno Morais, 50 Lee Sawyer, 47 Ben Sahar.

So...Ashley Cole will play in the FA Cup final. I reckon that if we're leading at half time, Drogba will be taken off and Sahar will come to take his place. Nuno Morais will probably get his farewell appearance too.

boula?

doesn't a straight red mean a 3 match suspension? 300.gificon_confused.gif

We can only hope so! That way we can sell him in the summer and never have to see him in a blue shirt again. He worries me more than Huth did. They both of them give away far too many free kicks around the D due to their lack of positional sense and speed.

But then, that's what you get when you buy a central defender just because they're big and angry looking.

Well, that may be enough against the also-rans, but against the bigger teams, it's just a recipe for disaster.
