Manchester City is expected to feature Robinho in the line-up for their game against Chelsea this Saturday. The Brazilian superstar who will be just returning from his international duties will need to have a full check-up before being listed in the line-up. There we’re no signs of any injuries in Robinho’s 90 minute appearance against Bolivia.

Manchester has just flown a private jet out to pick-up all their South American players. Robinho, Elano, Jo and Pablo Zabaleta are the four players who we’re competing with their international squad and needed to be picked-up. There expecting to arrive tonight at midnight which will only give them hours to determine whether or not they’ll be playing.

I don’t think that coach Hughes could afford to rest any of the South American players and I definitely think that Robinho will be making his debut. The entire city has been waiting anxiously for Robinho to make his first start and I can’t see them having him sit against a team like Chelsea. Chelsea was the other team in close contentions of getting Robinho from Real Madrid and would have probably got him if it wasn’t for the massive contract offer from Manchester City.

In other news Theo Walcott the brilliant young talent out of England managed to net himself a hat trick against Croatia which helped his England team move onto the path to South Africa 2010. Arsenal’s manager isn’t at all surprised by the great performance by Walcott and although people shouldn’t expect this from him every game it is something he brings to the table. You never know what Walcott could do on the field and I can’t wait to see him in 2010.
