Habib Beye has given Joe Kinnear a welcome boost after the draw at Goodison Park yesterday.
Beye missed the game with his Achilles injury becasue he was just not ready, even though he had trained on Friday and Saturday.
The former Marseille captain says that he expects to be fully fit and ready to go for the visit of Manchester City two weeks today.
Beye talked to the official site today:
“I trained on Friday but the Everton game was too soon,” “The Premier League is very fast and physical and you have to be at your best to play.”
“Now I have two weeks to work on my fitness and by the time we play Man City I will be fine and ready to play.”
If Beye does make it back we’ll hazard a guess that the back four will be Beye Coloccini Taylor and Bassong.
We have a feeling that Bassong may have shaded his way past Enrique for the left back spot, after yesterday’s display, and he looks a fine player in the making, with such composure for one so young, and he certainly links up well with fellow Frenchman Charles N’Zogbia on the left wing.
What do you think?
