Chelsea is in a crisis and the world is about to come crashing down. The phrase “you can’t win every game” is one that many Blues fans say, but clearly don’t actually believe.
Chelsea drew its last UEFA Champions League group stage game away to Krasnodar 1-1 last season, as well, and there was no injury crisis then.
Live now :Man United vs Man city
Jorginho, Mateo Kovacic, N’Golo Kante and Ruben Loftus-Cheek are all either injured or unable to start the next game for the Blues. Chelsea has conceded three goals in each of its last two games. But like Thomas Tuchel has said, the problem is in the details, so it’s easy to fix.
The Blues welcome Leeds United to Stamford Bridge in a bid to continue their title charge. Chelsea lost to first place to Manchester City and West Ham United, but it now has to be ready to take advantage of any slip-ups, as well, like Manchester City were.
Jorginho will play through the pain of a back problem to ease Chelsea’s midfield injury issues in Saturday’s Premier League clash with Leeds.
Mateo Kovacic continues isolation after testing positive for Covid-19, while N’Golo Kante could make a tentative return to training next week after knee trouble but will not feature at Stamford Bridge this weekend.
