Cole Palmer’s Absence from Chelsea Training Poses Huge Blow Ahead of Arsenal Clash


Chelsea’s upcoming clash against Arsenal is overshadowed by uncertainty as star player Cole Palmer is a significant doubt due to illness, having missed training on Monday.

Palmer has been a standout performer for Chelsea this season, contributing 23 goals and 13 assists across various competitions. His absence would be a blow, especially considering his joint top scorer status in the Premier League alongside Erling Haaland.

Manager Mauricio Pochettino expressed uncertainty about Palmer’s availability for the match, stating that his condition will be assessed closer to kickoff. Even if Palmer improves by then, there’s a possibility he may not be fit enough to participate.

In addition to Palmer’s absence, full-backs Ben Chilwell and Malo Gusto are also facing doubts due to injuries sustained during Chelsea’s recent FA Cup semi-final defeat to Manchester City. Pochettino provided updates on their conditions, indicating potential concerns for their availability.

Despite these setbacks, Chelsea has been on an unbeaten run in their last eight matches and sits ninth in the league table. Pochettino is eager for his team to maintain their momentum and finish the season strongly with only seven matches remaining.

“The circumstances are completely different but now is the end of the season, they are playing for the Premier League,” he added. “We need the three points to be in another position in the table.

“We are two or three games behind all of the teams above us and it is important to try and win games like this to be close to European competition next season. We are confident in one day getting (to) the same level (as Arsenal), of course.

“We are positive and always in football the most important thing is to believe. Arsenal a few years ago, they were in a different situation than today. But in time, with confidence and trust in him (Arteta), they are there. Here, it is not a different thing.”
