Andy O’Brien and Aaron Hughes were rested against Bayer Leverkusen with the Evening Chronicle has claimed that both players have been told that they will play against Chelsea.
So what does that mean for Jonathan Woodgate, Titus Bramble, Andy Griffin and Olivier Bernard – it is safe to assume that Steve Caldwell won’t play on Saturday.
Well whoever gets left out will certainly be unlucky.
With Laurent Robert suspended it could mean that we will see Bernard on the left of midfield with Hughes and Griffin at full back, particularly with Jermaine Jenas injured and Hugo Viana lacking match fitness.
So the big decision will come down to Woodgate or Bramble.
Of course this is all speculation and Sir Bobby has previously stated that he knows his best back four and with everyone finally fit we should see what it is against Chelsea.
