Football: Weekeng guide to the premiership - Sheffield Wednesday v Chelsea Last season: 1-4
Saturday 24 April 1999
The Chelsea player-manager, Gianluca Vialli, could return to lead the attack against Wednesday at Hillsborough after injury kept him out of the 1-0 Cup-Winners' Cup defeat by Real Mallorca. He is now without Norwegian striker Tore Andre Flo, whose country have invoked Fifa's five-day international rule to make first claim on him for their Euro 2000 qualifier against Georgia on Wednesday.
Vialli, who says he still wants to keep playing next season at the age of 35, also has teenaged Finland striker Mikael Forssell available. Denmark midfielder Bjarne Goldbaek, who like Forssell was cup-tied for Chelsea in Europe, should also return to the starting line-up on Sunday.
England full-back Graeme Le Saux now serves a one-match suspension for his much-publicised argument with Liverpool's Robbie Fowler earlier this season. Le Saux also has an ankle injury after Thursday's game, but goalkeeper Ed de Goey has suffered no reaction playing against Real Mallorca with a broken toe and is set to continue at Hillsborough. Chelsea have won on their last two trips to Hillsborough and have only lost once in six Premiership visits.
