With our next fixture not until Saturday, when we travel to South London to take on Crystal Palace, it`s fair to say we have a bit of a break before our hectic fixture schedule resumes.
But, on the horizon is a trip to Paris, to take on Paris St Germain in the Parc des Princes.
One player hoping to make the starting eleven is Samuel Eto`o, our striker who is currently injured having tweaked a hamstring against Arsenal, on Saturday.
Speaking about the clash, Eto`o has remarked, about being desperate to play,
"I always dreamed of playing at the Parc des Princes."
"Unfortunately my injury may not allow me to be there."
"Can I get fit enough? Time will tell."
"I can`t say anything but I will work to be there. I could have played for PSG back when Luis Fernandez was the coach."
"He bought me dinner but the clubs couldn`t find an agreement. It was a real shame."
Eto`o, continuing, also has some words to say about the Special One commenting on that age jibe and his special motivation powers with the Cameroon international remarking,
"Even if I am old, I continue to score goals. I have known lots of coaches but it is true he is unique for the way he motivates."
"In the build-up to matches, he becomes someone else. He sometimes loses the plot like he did with me."
"But it was the first time he attacked one of his own players. Normally, he takes the pressure on himself."
"There is something in his approach to a match that others don`t have. He is someone else in the build up."
Perhaps though, being churlish, we should remember that although Eto`o has scored 11 goals for Chelsea this season, all 11 have come at Stamford Bridge, therefore perhaps we should concentrate on getting Samuel Eto`o fit for the second leg, on April 9th, at Stamford Bridge!
