Blow for Chelsea as Graham Potter provides injury updates on 3 starters ahead of Dinamo clash

“No problems injury wise” – 3 Chelsea players to miss Brentford game

Graham Potter has just taken his press conference ahead of Chelsea’s game against Dinamo Zagreb.

As always, proceedings began with an injury update.

There are 3 starters out with long term issues – Reece James, Wesley Fofana and N’Golo Kante. They won’t be back for some time, but there are a number of others with more minor issues which Potter was asked about today.

According to our coach, Kepa won’t be fit, although Potter is sure it will be a matter of “days” rather than anything more serious than that.

Christian Pulisic has a slight calf problem, which makes him a doubt.

Kalidou Koulibaly trained today without issue, and Potter was sure that he will be “in the squad” tomorrow.

So overall not great but not terrible either. Tomorrow’s game will likely see a huge amount of rotation in any case, so Potter is not going to risk players who have any lingering issues when there are fresh, keen faces on the bench ready to go.
