Chelsea Suffer Double Injury Blow

By David Chinemerem

Chelsea manager, Frank Lampard, has confirmed that defenders, Emerson Palmieri and Andreas Christensen will be out of action until next month.

Emerson sustained a thigh injury in Chelsea’s 2-1 defeat to Liverpool on Sunday in the Premier League.

The Italian left-back was joined on the treatment table by Christensen after the Danish centre-back suffered a knee problem against the UEFA Champions League winners.

“Emerson now won’t be back until the other side of the international break (during mid-October),” Lampard told a news conference ahead of Wednesday’s Carabao Cup third round clash against Grimsby Town at Stamford Bridge.

“It will be a few weeks because it is the reoccurrence of an injury so we have to be a bit careful with it.

“Andreas is not too severe. Hopefully, he won’t be out for too long but I can’t give a timeframe.”
