Andre Villas Boas has confirmed that new signing Juan will be in contention for this weekend’s Premier League fixture against Norwich City.
The Blue’s boss said “It is too early. This league is very specific in terms of intensity and emotionally and culturally,”
“It doesn’t mean he is not threatening the starting 11 but two training sessions is short for playing and creating new relationships with the players, so we will assess tomorrow. Tomorrow is the decisive day for the strategic part of our game and we will decide tomorrow.”
“Everybody is up for selection. At the moment the funny thing is we are on full weeks running into a game, then when the transfer window finishes we have two games a week. it seems now we went into a pattern of the 18 and 11 but it doesn’t mean changes won’t happen after.”
On the other hand David Luiz is still ruled out however he has made progress, but is expected to be released for international duty having been called up to the Brazil squad for their friendly with Ghana at Craven Cottage. The defender returned to full training on Thursday however Saturday’s game is seen to be tot soon for the 24 year old.
