Chelsea suffer fresh injury blows ahead of Arsenal game

Chelsea duo out of Arsenal game

Chelsea have suffered fresh injury blows ahead of Sunday’s Premier League clash against Arsenal at Stamford Bridge.

The Blues recently beat Dinamo Zagreb (2-1) in the Champions League group stage but the result was not fully satisfying.

Ben Chilwell unfortunately sustained a hamstring injury in stoppage time and he could now be sidelined for months.

He is definitely out of Sunday’s meeting against the Gunners and the same goes for goalkeeper Kepa Arrizabalaga.

Arrizabalaga picked up a foot injury last weekend and he was spotted in crutches in the lead-up to the Zagreb game.

Speaking after yesterday’s win, Graham Potter confirmed that it was only precautionary, but he won’t play on Sunday.

Chelsea have a big schedule ahead before the World Cup with key games against Arsenal and Newcastle in the league.

They must avoid losing points against the duo or else the gap to the top four could further extend before the winter break.

The Blues are presently sixth in the league, three points behind fourth-placed Newcastle United with a match in hand.
