Injuries a worry for Sarri as Chelsea beat Palace

Injuries a worry for Sarri as Chelsea beat Palace

Chelsea manager Maurizio Sarri was a happy man after his side beat Crystal Palace 1-0 today at Selhurst Park and consolidated their position in the top four.

Coach Maurizio Sarri said the Frenchman had an ankle problem which looked set to rule him out of Wednesday's game against Southampton and adds to the team's fitness problems, particularly in attack with Pedro, Cesc Fabregas and Ruben Loftus Cheek also now sidelined.

"We played against a unsafe opponent". We have to wait for tomorrow.

"Now we have to work on Loftus-Cheek and on Barkley". He was previously using Eden Hazard through the middle, with great success.

Chelsea laboured for long spells against a disciplined but relatively unambitious Palace side, hitting the post twice in the first half from Willian's curling free kick and Ross Barkley's overhead kick from a corner. "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 now need continuity because in the last five matches we played very well in three, and badly in two, so now is the moment to have continuity.

Bayern Munich ready second bid for Chelsea starlet Callum Hudson-Odoi
He made three more substitute appearances under Antonio Conte, including one in the Premier League against Bournemouth. Chelsea attacker Callum Hudson-Odoi is reportedly on the radar of Bayern Munich ahead of the January transfer window.

The England youth global has been in good form for his national side with the U21s, but has been restricted to watching from the sidelines for the Reds this season.

"I didn't like only that we weren't able to kill off the match before".

Antonio Rudiger headed tamely into the arms of Palace goalkeeper Vicente Guaita before Kante sent a more forceful shot wide as Chelsea enjoyed the better of the opening exchanges. However, they failed to find the back of the net in the first half, despite having a better possession of the ball.

Stuttgart are in trouble in the Bundesliga, sitting third bottom, and a lack of goals, with just 12 scored in 17 league games, has contributed to their woes. So for us the midfielders' movement without the ball is very important.
