Injuries a worry for Sarri as Chelsea beat Palace

01 January, 2019, 16:59 | Author: Isabel Grant
  • ‘This’ Chelsea player is en-route to a new club as he does not want a new deal: But why?

It wasn't one of our better days technically so we could have opened ourselves up for 40 minutes and see them exploit the spaces, or we could try and do what we did and keep things tight and the keep the game under some sort of control until 20 minutes from the end and try to take our chances.

Sarri was forced to leave Ruben Loftus-Cheek, Cesc Fabregas, Pedro and Callum Hudson-Odoi out of his squad for the game due to injury, and may now be without Giroud for several weeks with Chelsea's workload showing no sign of easing in a busy January.

"Fabregas' is a neck problem".

Coach Maurizio Sarri said the Frenchman had an ankle problem which looked set to rule him out of Wednesday's game against Southampton and adds to the team's fitness problems, particularly in attack with Pedro, Cesc Fabregas and Ruben Loftus Cheek also now sidelined.

Kante has sometimes looked out of sorts in his different position this season, but he showed signs of getting to grips with it on Sunday, scoring the victor at Crystal Palace with a well-timed run and cool finish.

Chelsea's French midfielder N'Golo Kante and Chelsea's Brazilian defender David Luiz celebrate on the pitch after the English Premier League football match between Crystal Palace and Chelsea at Selhurst Park in south London on 30 December, 2018.

"In the last few days we were a but unlucky".

"He is improving, especially in his movement without the ball", Sarri said of Kante.

"We played against a unsafe opponent".

"But looking at his striking options, I don't think the manager truly believes in his two strikers, if I am honest". We have to work on Loftus and Ross Barkley on this.

Solanke has yet to make a senior appearance for Liverpool, the Premier League leaders, this season and Hodgson said: "If Steven has mentioned that, then it's no secret he's a target". He will provide an attacking threat as a good center-forward should provide. He's a proven goalscorer through all the age groups at (former club) Chelsea and England.

Out of 19 games in the first half of the Premier League season, Ayew featured 12 times, including eight starts and four times as a substitute.
