Maurizio Sarri’s injury list grows as ANOTHER Chelsea attacker limps off

  • Kante strike earns Chelsea slim win at Crystal Palace

He has made a total 499 appearances for both Chelsea and Arsenal, and one more would see him reach his target ahead of his expected departure. It was the midfielder's third league goal of the season - the most he has ever managed in a single top-flight campaign. The Brazil worldwide produced a delightful pass to set Kante up for the match winning strike, and then he gave off a very composed performance at the back as the Blues picked up a valuable three points for a second victory in succession, after their win at Watford on Boxing Day.

"I think that we played a very good match for 85 minutes", Sarri said.

As far as Christian Pulisic is concerned, however, there seems to be a very mixed message concerning his future with some outlets claiming he's agreed and signed personal terms with Chelsea while others say the race to sign him is still on.

Willian lauded the quality of his compatriot Luiz, whose decisive pass allowed N'Golo Kante in Sunday's win at Crystal Palace with a pass few defenders are capable of.

Sarri, though, has a paucity of options as striker Olivier Giroud suffered an ankle injury, adding to injuries for Cesc Fabregas (neck), Ruben Loftus-Cheek (back), Pedro (hamstring) and Callum Hudson-Odoi (hamstring). "The injury was in the last five minutes of training, so I'm not sure whether he has to rest for two or 10 days".

"We played against a risky opponent". "Today his movement was really very good and done with the right timing".

Jorginho blasted wide as Chelsea pressed again, and Sarri's side won a free kick 25 yards out after a foul on Hazard, Willian's effort hitting the outside of the post.

The former England boss added: "He's someone with the profile we're looking for, and the ability we are looking for".

"First of all, we've got to try and make certain we do get him here on loan".

"It would take some player to knock their front three out of the team, so it's not a negative in relation to him that he's not been able to do so".
