Sheva back for Anfield

Andriy Shevchenko is almost certainly going to start for the Blues at Anfield on Saturday.
Passed fit by the Chelsea medical team on a troublsome ego - sorry hamstring,, the Ukraine hitman will partner Didier Drogba up front.
Saloman Kalou, who has played more games than Jose Mourinho would have anticipated this season will make way for Sheva.
Kalou has failed miserably. He does, however have the ability to recover and make a name for himself - but only as a third-choice striker.
The sheer number of chances he has missed, means that without Sheva, Chelsea have relied on Drogba and the midfield to supply the goals.
Even Wayne Bridge popped up with a goal to spare their blushes against Wycombe Wanderers.
As far as JT's injury goes, he won't, it appears, be returning to the first team on Saturday.
An insider confided to me that JT might be out for some time yet, prompting a U-turn by Roman Abramovich to sanction a move for Bolton centre-back Ben Haim.

Jose Mourinho can call on the services of Petr Cech following his head injury. Carlo Cudicini will be the second choice goalkeeper with Hilario dropped.
Magnus Headman, injured, will, er.......... do whatever a fourth-choice goalkeeper normaly does.
