Matt Debono

Maurizio Sarri has admitted the Blues have been unlucky in recent days, with injuries starting to hit the Chelsea squad.

They were without several players for the trip to Selhurst Park which resulted in a win, courtesy of N'Golo Kante strike in the second-half.

Callum Hudson-Odoi, Cesc Fabregas, Pedro and Ruben Loftus-Cheek were all injured after they'd picked up injuries from Boxing Day onwards.

Olivier Giroud also sustained an injury, leaving the ground on crutches, and

Sarri says Giroud has a problem with his ankle. "I think that we have to wait for tomorrow. I think that later in the evening I will see the doctor for the first result... In the last two days we were a bit unlucky. Yesterday in 10 minutes we had three injuries."
