Poor Chelsea start could see Ivanovic dropped for new arrival Rahman

Branislav Ivanovic could make way for new Chelsea signing Abdul Baba Rahman according to reports.

The Ghanaian left-back, who completed his move from FC Augsburg on the weekend, is set to debut against West Bromwich Albion on Sunday.

The Daily Mirror reports that Ivanovic will be the victim of Chelsea's horror start to the new season with Cesar Azpilicueta set to slot in at right-back as Rahman takes up the Spaniard's vacancy on the left.

Serbian international Ivanovic has struggled against Swansea City's Jefferson Montero and Manchester City's Raheem Sterling and is expected to make way for Rahman when the Blues travel to The Hawthorns this weekend.
