Loic Remy hopes to be fit enough to take on United

On Tuesday, the striker was the one to score the opening goal when the Blues gave Maribor a thrashing of 6-0 in the UEFA Champions League, but the player’s joy came to an abrupt end as he had no choice but to leave the game due to an injury to the groin, leaving many mans that follow Chelsea very concerned.
The player ended up being replaced 16 minutes into the game, and, as the very talented Diego Costa is dealing with a hamstring problem, it seemed as if Didier Drogba would turn out to be the Blues’ only striker with enough fitness before the team visits United.
Remy, who is a former frontman for QPR, is very hopeful of being fit enough to take on United, as this season, the leaders of the Premier League will try to keep their excellent start, and advance even more.
The player said: “We will see with the scan, I really hope it is not too bad. Fortunately, I stopped playing because I felt something. I don’t think it is too bad, but I felt something. My groin.
And Remy’s fans are knocking on wood, hoping that the injury that he sustained doesn’t keep him from playing against United.
“It was before I scored, it was a bit stiff – even my run did not feel very comfortable. That’s why I prefer to come off, but for me I have to care about myself and if I’m not feeling very good it’s better to leave for another player who is 100 per cent.
“Yes it’s frustrating, of course, because I had a chance to play because Costa is injured, but I am not afraid.
“I don’t think it is really bad. We will check and I really hope to play again this weekend.”
Many fans following the Blues and sports software services believe that Remy – besides Drogba – could be the biggest hope that the team has at the moment, and would like to see the player shine on the pitch when Chelsea pays a visit to Old Trafford, but they also know that the most important thing right now is for him to focus on recovering.
