Despite the fact that Branislav Ivanovic hasn't been, how shall we put it, very good during this match between Tottenham Hotspur and Chelsea, being forced to leave with a hamstring injury wasn't exactly in Andre Villas-Boas's plans for this game. Physios on the edge of the field did their darndest to rub life back into Ivanovic's hurting thigh, but to no avail.
Chelsea played with ten men for a couple minutes, perhaps deciding whether it would actively hamper their chances to bring in one of their defensive substitutes. By "one of," I of course mean "only," as Paulo Ferreira was the only defender available on the bench. The change forces Jose Bosingwa into the center back position, as Ferreira slots in at right back.
With an already unsteady Blues defense, Chelsea can't afford any more wasted chances, such as Didier Drogba's shot from the edge of the area. A strong strike, yes, but unfortunately for the visitors, it ricocheted off the post.
