Chelsea injury crisis deepens with Giroud and Willian
CHELSEA may be forced to dip into the market in January for a striker both Olivier Giroud and Willian were harmed in the 1-0 prevail upon Crystal Palace.
32-year-old Giroud must be supplanted by Alvaro Morata in the 75th minute after suffering what looked to be a nasty ankle injury.
The medical team quickly treated the World Cup winner, where he was subsequently taken off for Spanish forward Morata.
Willian was substituted before long, being replaced by Emerson.
It didn’t at first give the idea that the Brazilian had an issue, but he was spotted with an ice-pack bandaged to his calf as he walked off the field.
Chelsea are currently in the midst of a crisis up top, with Pedro and Callum Hudson-Odoi both sidelined with hamstring injuries.
While the England youth universal could before long be leaving Stamford Bridge on a permanent basis with Bayern Munich bidding £20million for the 18-year-old.
Maurizio Sarri has even started Eden Hazard as a false number nine during recent weeks, with both Giroud and Morata complimenting to deceive.
