Touchline: Could this be debut EPL weekend for Baba Rahman?

first_imgJosé Mourinho is considering using Kurt Zouma as a full-back in Chelsea’s vital Premier League game against Aston Villa on Saturday after Branislav Ivanovic was ruled out for up to a month with a hamstring injury sustained while on international duty with Serbia.The absence of the 31-year-old, who has featured consistently this season despite poor form and Chelsea having conceded 17 goals in eight games, would normally present an obvious route into the team for Baba Rahman who was  purchased for around £17m from Augsburg over the summer, with César Azpilicueta reverting to full-back duties on the opposite flank.Is Baba Rahman ready for the premier league according to Mourinho criteria? Will his absence signal panic? was this the best to have joined Chelsea?All the these questions were addresses on this week’s edition of Touchline ,which feature former team mate of Liverpool’s Jurgen Klop-(C.k Akunnor) talk up the german’s chances of making it in the EPL on the  E-Chat segment.  –Follow Joy Sports on Twitter: @Joy997FM.
