Some good news for Chelsea ahead of the Roma game on Wednesday evening. Like Chelsea, our Italian opposition are also struggling with injuries following their 1-0 Serie A defeat at home to Napoli.
Most notable being Kostas Manolas who limped out of the weekend game with a thigh injury. He joins a list absentees including Stephan El Shaaraway, Patrik Shick, Kevin Strootman, Gregoire Defrel and Emerson Palmieri. According to The Daily Mail Lorenzo Pellegrini was also forced out of the game on Saturday. His situation is being monitored ahead of the Champions League clash.
Chelsea have their own problems though, with key midfielder N`golo Kante sidelined along with Victor Moses. One bright note for the current Premier League champions is Alvaro Morata trained with first team today
Let`s hope the team are able to put behind them the nightmare that occurred at Crystal Palace on Saturday.
