Gael Kakuta will finally get some much-needed first team matches this season.
It's a shame it's a near neighbours Fulham.
Clearly, as a result of the dreaful recent run of poor form and results, Carlo Ancelotti is under pressure to go with his soft-option of playing established players.
The team is slowly coming out of the trough.
But this has meant the likes of Daniel Sturridge, Kakuta, Brum and others are kickling their heels on the bench or in the stands.
Mark Hughes knows a good player and Kakuta, who will remain at Craven Cottage until the end of the season, should have a great chance to show Ancelotti what he is missimg.
Kakuta is a French u-20 international. He joined the club in July 2007 as a trainee, making his debut in November 2009. He has played 16 times for the Blues
