Hull City entertains Ancelotti’s minions today in a make-up of a game called by weather a few weeks ago.
Should be an entertaining one as:
♦ Didier Drogba Sr. is back for the interlopers.
We had this to say a few weeks back:
• Might England’s nasty weather have cost Jozy his EPL job next year?
What if Hull City gets relegated by one point? Why do we ask?
Well, the Tigers were all set to square of with Chelsea at KC Stadium last Saturday a few weeks ago in a game that is now rescheduled for a later date. That would have been a Chelsea side severely weakened by the loss of Essien, Drogba, Kalou, Obi Mikel to the Cup of Nations tourney and with Nicolas Anelka only a probable, but not definite, set to return from injury.
A less than Herculean task to compete against that Blues squad? Should Hull get relegated by a point and lose that Chelsea return, they might curse mother nature.
♦ We’ll hopefully get a mini-preview of June 12th as Drogba Jr, Jozy Altidore, goes up against John Terry or Alex Cole or both.
A cluttered attack sees Craig Fagan, new recruit Amr Zavi, Jan Jan Vennegoor of Hesselink, Kamil Ghilas and Altidore all battle for spots up top but it might be difficult to keep Big Jeezy out of the line-up after he registered two assists Saturday to move his name to #17 overall in assists for the Barclays.
