Latest Chelsea Injury News And Expected Return Dates: Updates On Cole Palmer, Reece James And 6 Others

Chelsea manager Mauricio Pochettino has denied claims that Cole Palmer is carrying an injury.

The 21-year-old played with bandages on his legs during the 1-0 defeat to Manchester City in the FA Cup semi-final on Saturday but, speaking after the match, Pochettino said:

“It’s normal. He’s tired, but I don’t believe he has a problem. We need to check tomorrow, but I hope there’s nothing more wrong than his tiredness.”

Palmer was not substituted at the weekend, which suggests that, if the winger had picked up an issue, it was relatively minor.

Expected Return Date – Tuesday 23rd April v Arsenal
