Chelsea have confirmed seven players will miss Saturday’s Premier League clash against Brentford due to injury.
Mauricio Pochettino‘s side head into another London derby this weekend as Brentford visit Stamford Bridge, with the Blues looking to go five games unbeaten in all competitions.
Following a torrid record with injuries at the beginning of the campaign, Chelsea have started to see numbers increase at Cobham as the medical room reduces its count of injury casualties.
Ahead of the west London derby, Chelsea have named seven players who look set to miss the fixture, with Romeo Lavia, Trevoh Chalobah and Christopher Nkunku all still absent, while Armando Broja is still being treated for a knee issue which looks likely to keep him out of Saturday’s affair.
