3 new players added to Chelsea injury list, including attacking midfielder everyone wanted to start

Chelsea’s injury report has just added 3 new players to the list of 6 already out.

Just as soon as we had got them back, Robert Sanchez, Trevoh Chalobah and Carney Chukwuemeka have all been added and described as “undergoing rehabilitation programme.”

That hopefully means they’re not out long, but it’s still immensely frustrating.

Chalobah has been starting regularly since he got back, and given Levi Colwill is also on the list, this means we’re once again pretty thin in central defence. Could this mean Benoit Badiashile’s return from his own injury hell?

Even more frustrating is Chukwuemeka. Many Blues fans were hoping that he would get a start on Saturday, having done so well as a sub against Leicester in our last game. Yet another setback seems to have made that impossible.

We will get more information from Mauricio Pochettino in his press conference shortly – although we’re not sure we can handle any more bad news.
