We have heard Jose Mourinho implying that he has a difficult injury situation at the moment. God help us if he does get more than a couple of players crocked at any one time.
Because Chelsea look comparatively well off in terms of injury. Diego Costa and Ramires are expected back this weekend and the only other injured party is Loic Remy who will be out until after the international break – yes, sadly there is another one round the corner.
But it’s hardly an injury crisis is it? Some might suggest that the Chelsea manager likes to moan!
Anyway, they look in great shape and will be fully expected to beat a QPR side which has started to show better form but won;t get near Chelsea.
After scoring 3 goals in successive games Jose might actually let Drogba continue with Costa in reserve in case required – certainly the extra day of recovery can only help the Spaniard. That said, he has played a lot of football for a 36 year old and Costa may be the more realistic option. But it’s a toss up. Maybe even Schurrle will get the nod – he deserves game time.
Anyway – here’s our 11 for what should be a walk in the park.
