Nine players out through injuries. 7 starters including their top goalie and defenders. Chelsea sits at the top of the table with 10 wins with just one loss having scored 32 goals and conceding only four. A goal differential of + 28. Compare this to Liverpool’s +13, Man U’s +15, and Arsenal +10 and you begin to appreciate the depth of their squad. Nicholas Anelka has rendered Drogba’s injuries and expected suspension moot.
