‘Are We Legitimately Cursed Or What?’ ‘Welp’ ‘We’re Done For’ Chelsea Fans On Social Media Disappointed After Latest Injury News

Chelsea manager Frank Lampard has confirmed that Emerson Palmieri will be out of action until after the next international break with a thigh injury.

The left-back originally picked up the problem when playing for Italy earlier this month, but he aggravated the same issue during the opening stages of the 2-1 defeat to Liverpool on Sunday.

Lampard also revealed that Andreas Christensen has picked up a knock with a return date yet to be determined. Supporters on Twitter were lamenting the Blues’ bad luck with injuries:

Chelsea currently have five players on the treatment table. In addition to Emerson and Christensen, Antonio Rudiger (groin), Ruben Loftus-Cheek (Achilles) and Marco van Ginkel (knee) are all out of contention.

Callum Hudson-Odoi (Achilles) and Reece James (ankle) are, however, expected to make their comeback this evening when the first team face Grimsby Town in the third round of the Carabao Cup at Stamford Bridge.
