Apologies all, I’ve been moving house today and cannot get near to doing a full preview of tonight’s game, which starts in a matter of minutes. Suffice to say that a win is actually quite important given Chelsea’s qualification last night (we play Chelsea after matchday 5, and they can concentrate entirely on that one), and I think we’ll get it, 2-0.
Elsewhere, the injuries to Clichy and Bendtner, which probably see neither return for much action before Christmas, are a real pain – both were beginning to get into decent form. Fortunately, we have backup in both areas of the fields – Gibbs and Traore provide ample cover at left back, while Eduardo still can’t get a game up front (Nasri replaces Bendtner from the weekend’s team).
Tomorrow I’m back with full internet access, so expect a full write up – at least Sky got me up and running in the new house in time for the match.
Enjoy it, wherever you are.
