BREAKING NEWS: Arsenal injury news and comeback dates before of the capital derby with Chelsea include Bukayo Saka, Thomas Partey, and Leandro Trossard.
Chelsea have been ravaged by injuries throughout Mauricio Pochettino’s short tenure in charge so far. The Argentine is currently sweating on four players ahead of this weekend’s Premier League match at home to Arsenal, while six others have already been ruled out.
Chelsea welcome Arsenal to Stamford Bridge on Saturday evening. The Blues have won three matches in a row in all competitions but haven’t won a home league match against the Gunners since August 2018.
Pochettino would ideally want a full-strength squad to choose from against Mikel Arteta’s side, who are yet to lose a top-flight game this term. But there are as many as 10 players in the Chelsea squad who are either ruled out already or potentially unavailable.
Wesley Fofana suffered an ACL injury before the season started and faces a fight to play at all this term. Christopher Nkunku is also yet to play since his summer arrival, with his own knee injury set to keep him out until the new year.
