Key Chelsea goalkeeper injured as four Chelsea players join injury list

Chelsea have been hit with fresh wave of injury concerns, as four players have joined the injury list ahead of the Premier League clash with Burnley on Saturday.

Chelsea had this week confirmed that Romeo Lavia will miss the remainder of the season due to a thigh injury.

Chelsea also announced on Thursday that Carney Chukwuemeka, Robert Sanchez, Trevoh Chalobah and Ben Chilwell have all been added to the club’s injury list.

Chalobah is currently in light training and will miss Burnley game as a result, while Robert Sanchez and Carney Chukwuemeka are ‘undergoing a rehabilitation programme’.

Reece James, Levi Colwill, Wesley Fofana, Lesley Ugochukwu and Christopher Nkunku are all out for Chelsea.

For Ben Chilwell who suffered a knee injury during England’s 2-2 draw with Belgium on Tuesday, seems to be back in training and could feature against Burnley.

“We need to assess a few players like Chilwell who came back from the national team after playing two games, after he didn’t play with us, he got a knock in his knee,” Pochettino said during his press conference on Thursday.

“Today he was all right to train and now we will see what happens tomorrow, if he can be available to be in the squad or not. We need to assess him.

“I don’t know if I was surprised he played both games. He could not play for us, because he didn’t play after Brentford, he only played a few minutes in the game against Leicester in the FA Cup.

“It was a little bit a situation when he starts two games, maybe it’s a surprise for us, but it’s bad luck because he got a dead leg in the last moment of the game against Belgium.

“Now we need to struggle because we need him to play in our club. That is another piece of bad luck that we have because now we need to assess if he can be available or not.”
