Other observations from Real practice

Along with Tony Beltran and Nathan Sturgis being back healthy, a couple of other injured players were back for a full training. Dema Kovalenko and Fabian Espindola participated in practice, and from what I could see, both seemed to be moving pretty well.
Kovalenko practiced and there was not much hint of the nagging calf injury, but he is definitely still doubtful for the big celebration at Rio Tinto on Thursday. Espindola looked terrific in a couple of drills where he was running, cutting dribbling and shooting, but his main question at this point is fitness. Both could be made available in the next couple of weeks.
With Sturgis and Kovalenko getting healthy, my main question is do you mess with the chemistry the team has been showing lately? A win and a tie (even with the way the tie came about) on the road in the last two games is impressive and the midfield has been a cohesive unit lately. Mess with a good thing or keep things as they stand?
