The defender underwent a hernia operation in the summer but managed only three appearances in September before eventually going to America for further groin surgery.

"His progression is good but I'm not expecting him to come back this season," said Jackett.

"I think he needs to have a good pre-season and go on from there. But if I'm pleasantly surprised then fantastic. He's out and moving well, which is good."

Danny Shittu has shone since taking the captain's armband in Robinson's absence, which could give Jackett a dilemma next term.

"That would be a nice problem to have," added Jackett.

"I originally signed Danny to play with Paul. You can't have enough leaders around."

s it the same people that complain about Chelsea that complain about Mayweather? You should by now know what to expect from both, if you can't appreciate how good they are at nullifying their opponents then don't watch them.

do concede though, that getting rid of Luiz has made them less entertaining. In the same way that driving with both eyes open is less exciting, but probably a good idea.
