Chelsea have been really blowing hot and cold this season.
And now one of their stars in Emerson Palmieri has now picked up an injury which could further dampen Chelsea’s chances of in the Premier League. Emerson was on national duty with his Italian team when he picked up an injury which forced him to come off. The Italian full back’s injury details have now been revealed by the national team coach and former Manchester City manager Roberto Mancini.
‘It was nothing serious, he stopped to ensure it didn’t get any worse,’ Mancini said. ‘The defence did well, as Armando Izzo and Francesco Acerbi were playing together for the first time, but Alessandro Florenzi also impressed on the left, considering he was the only option we had remaining.’
Chelsea will hope Mancini’s words come true and that Emerson does not miss the weekend clash against Wolves. Chelsea have only collected 5 points from 4 games and need to get back to winning ways quickly if they are to finish in the top four.
Although Chelsea have a back up in Marcos Alonso, Lampard has been unwilling to use the Spaniard so far.
