Chelsea had to worry a lot when it was reported that Cole Palmer was injured while playing for the U21 team last weekend. The Young Lions’ overwhelming 9-1 victory over Serbia U21 was not complete because Palmer left the field at the beginning of the second half.
The Blues star was then left out of the England U21 squad for the match against Ukraine U21. Coach Carsley is said to not want to risk his fitness.
There have been many questions about whether Palmer will recover in time to face the Gunners at the weekend. Mikel Arteta’s team will clearly give the Blues their biggest challenge of the season so far.
Good news for the home team at Stamford Bridge Palmer is expected to appear on coach Pochettino’s competition registration list, although it is unclear whether he will start or come from the bench. Besides, Chelsea also has to worry about the physical situation of Axel Disasi and Mykhailo Mudryk.
