Didier Returns to Squad for Everton Game


Didier Drogba returns to the Chelsea squad for the final game of the Premiership season at Stamford Bridge tomorrow against Everton. Jose is also planning to include two more youngsters from the Academy - Lee Sawyer and Sam Hutchinson - both 17 years old and both have featured heavily for the reserve team as well as the Academy.

Ben Sahar should retain his place in the squad after impressing Jose as a substitute against Man Utd on Wednesday night, but unfortunately Scott Sinclair is out after breaking a bone in his foot, in the same game.

Everton's Andy Johnson is definitely out because of an ankle injury.

I have watched a lot of reserve games this season and Lee Sawyer is an uncompromising defensive midfield player - likes to get stuck in, and Sam Hutchinson - a central defender, well all I can say ask is 'Are you John Terry in disguise?'

The Premiership is lost we know that, the Carling Cup is in the bag and we know that too. We all have the FA Cup Final to forward to next weekend but there is a record that is up for grabs that may not be widely known, although the UK press have picked up on it.

The last time Chelsea were beaten at Stamford Bridge in a league game was against Arsenal 21/02/2004 under Claudio Ranieri's tenure when we lost 2-1.

In avoiding defeat against Everton tomorrow, Chelsea will equal Liverpool's all-time top flight 63 unbeaten home game run.

Wouldn't it be ironic if Chelsea took the Scum's record from them in the first home League game of the 2007/2008 season?

Let's show Jose tomorrow how incredible our atmosphere at Stamford Bridge can be - no free flags etc etc, because Jose said "I can't say at Chelsea we have an incredible atmosphere at home because that is not the culture of our crowd."

Well Jose now that Chelsea has lost the title, perhaps the 'JCLs and Plastics' will become JCLs and Plastics elsewhere!!!
