Premier League Players going to the African Cup of Nations

11:10 am

It looks like a few teams in the Premier League could suffer a fair bit when the African Cup of Nations 2010 kicks off on Sunday, January 10th 2010. The competition, which always coughs up some great entertainment, will see approximately 27 Premier League players set off for Angola.

Which clubs are going to suffer? I've listed the teams that will compete in the group stages with their respected Premier League players below.

Teams playing in the group stage

Group A:
Gabon (Hull's Daniel Cousin)
Togo (Aston Villa's Moustapha Salifou and Manchester City's Emmanuel Adebayor)
Morocco (Spurs'Adel Taarabt)
Cameroon (Burnley's André Bikey, Spurs' Benoît Assou-Ekotto and Sébastien Bassong, Arsenal's Alexandre Song)

Group B:
Tunisia
Mozambique
Nigeria (Bolton's Danny Shittu, Everton's Joseph Yobo and Victor Anichebe, Chelsea's John Obi Mikel, Fulham's Dickson Etuhu, Hull's Seyi Olofinjana, Pompey's Nwankwo Kanu and John Utaka)
Kenya

Group C:
Egypt
Zambia
Algeria (Pompey's Nadir Belhadj and Hull's Kamel Ghilas)
Rwanda

Group D:
Ghana (Wigan's Richard Kingson, Fulham's John Paintsil, Chelsea's Michael Essien)
Mali (Stoke's Mamady Sidibé)
Sudan
Benin

Group E:
Ivory Coast (Manchester City's Kolo Touré, Arsenal's Emmanuel Eboué, Chelsea's Salomon Kalou and Didier Drogba)
Burkina Faso
Guinea (Hull's Kamil Zayatte)
Malawi

So we'll be losing out on Bassong and Assou-Ekotto. Chelsea, on the other hand, will be losing Kalou, Drogba, Essien and Mikel. After yesterday's news, they'll be trying to bring in as many lawyers into the mix as possible in a bid to get the FIFA sanction lifted.

At least we've got Bale and Dawson to throw into the mix when BAE and the Bass go missing.
