LITESPORT London Lite Friday, 6 November 2009 43 BANLIFTEDBY COURTBREAKING NEWS... Trott gets a shot against countrymen JONATHAN TROTT was today included in the England side to face the Diamond Eagles in their opening warm-up match of their tour to South Africa in Bloemfontein this evening. The home side won the toss and asked the visitors to bat on a warm and windy day at the OUTsurance Oval. Trott, who is returning to South Africa for the first time in the colours of his adopted country, batted at No3 for a near full- strength team named by the tourists, with the only slight surprise being the inclusion of Lancashires Sajid Mahmood ahead of Durhams Graham Onions. The Eagles will be captained by former South Africa batsman Boeta Dippenaar for the 50-over encounter.

MATCH FACTS It is 782 minutes of football (13 hours and two minutes) since chelsea last conceded at home Hull Citys Stephen Hunt scoring in their 2-1 away defeat on the opening day of the season. It is two years since United last won a PL away match against a fellow Big Four side. They have failed to win their last five away matches against their rivals, losing four times, since a 1-0 win at Liverpool in Dec 2007. United have not won in their last seven PL visits to Stamford Bridge, since a 3-0 victory in April 2002. They have lost four of these seven PL matches. KEY MEN DIDIER DROGBA CHELSEA THE Ivory Coast international has scored in each of his last five matches for the club (a total of six goals), and has netted in each of the clubs last three Premier League matches. He has never scored in four consecutive league matches for the club, but it would take a brave man to bet against him doing so on Sunday. Hes rarely delivered against United in the past, but the absence of Rio Ferdinand will make his task that bit easier. JONNY EVANS MAN UNITED THE 21-year-old (right) is held in high esteem by Sir Alex Ferguson despite evidence that hes suffering from second season syndrome. He looked far from comfortable against the rangy Milos Krasic in midweek, wholl seem like a pussycat compared to a rampant Didier Drogba wholl relish playing against a defender whose physical presence is less than intimidating.
