One won't be enough

As football supporters prepare themselves for the Premier League kick off next Saturday, top flight newboys, West Bromwich Albion are facing up to their tricky away game against Chelsea at Stamford Bridge with renewed optimism, as it was announced that they will start the game with not one, but two goalkeepers, in an effort to prevent the Blues recording a landslide win.

The Baggies have recently signed Boaz Myhill from relegated Hull City, and have named him, as well as last season's chosen favourite, Scott Carson, in a 20-man squad to face Carlo Ancelotti's men.

Manager Roberto di Matteo has already confirmed on the club's website that both Myhill and Carson will 'stand between the sticks'.

Di Matteo, a former Blues player, himself, knows the threat that Chelsea pose. He said:

"We may have to stick a few of the outfield players on the line as well!"
