INJURY: Success and Okaka out of Liverpool clash




Watford Nigerian striker, Isaac Success is still nursing a hamstring injury which will make him unavailable for his team’s clash at Anfield against Liverpool on Sunday.

The Nigerian suffered against newcomers, Middlesbrough. The date for his return is yet to be confirmed.

Another Nigerian star that will miss the clash against Liverpool is Stefano Okaka due to injury. This was confirmed by the coach that he won't risk Okaka, who has also been nursing a hamstring strain. Okaka's return date will be on November 6.

According to manager Walter Mazzari, "Okaka is close, but Sunday will probably come too soon.

"I don't want to run the risk of him getting even worse or more injured.”

Chelsea star names Del Piero as the toughest opponent he ever faced

Written by: Oladayo Juan Joe Bamidele


Chelsea's John Obi Mikel has revealed that ex-Juventus legend, Alessandro Del Piero is the toughest opponent he has ever faced in his professional career.

Mike played against Del Piero in the Champions League of 2009, and Mikel admittedly said that he was second best to the Italian.

While speaking to Four Four Two, he said : “I think Alessandro Del Piero was the best. I played against him a couple of times when he was at Juventus.

“He was close to retirement, but he just was so clever. He was finding space behind me every time to get the ball. I’d think ‘I’ve got him’ but then he’d just do something.

“I was inexperienced, he was very experienced, and he was just too clever for me. I was trying to beat him with energy, but he could beat me with his head.”

Mikel is yet to play for Chelsea in all competition this season.
