Chelsea injury update: Maurizio Sarri confirms forward dilemma

Injury issues for Chelsea

Chelsea manager Maurizio Sarri has confirmed the Blues have two injury issues ahead of the weekend.

They will be without defender Andreas Christensen, who is thought to be out for a week and a half.

Obviously with games piling up, that’s not ideal.

Chelsea may also need to use Eden Hazard as a false nine, with Alvaro Morata still struggling.

A gap opening up

Chelsea may think they’re a little off the pace in terms of the top of the table, but the top four race is on.

The Blues are right in the thick of things, but Arsenal are dropping points.

Their unbeaten run has come to an end, and the Gunners are now sitting in fifth.

Chelsea and Spurs may be left to fight it out for third spot,but a place in the top four would be enough for both clubs.

To get back into the Champions League is the main thing, and one that is seen as the bare minimum.
