Two key Chelsea players absent from training ahead of the trip to Arsenal
Chelsea could be without two of their key players ahead of their trip to Arsenal in the Premier League on Sunday.
The UEFA Champions League winners face the Gunners at the Emirates on Sunday after defeating Crystal Palace in the opening game of the season at Stamford bridge.
NGolo Kante and Christian Pulisic are the two key players that are likely to miss the encounter after the duo were absent from training on Wednesday. Chelsea and Thomas Tuchel had hoped that Kante will return to the team before the London derby following an ankle injury he picked up against Villarreal in the Super Cup.
Pulisic who played and scored against Palace is also a major doubt for the trip to the Emirates Stadium. Although Chelsea’s new recruit, Romelu Lukaku is set to feature for the blues after his big-money move to Stamford Bridge. This is a big blow to Chelsea.
