The Chelsea trio of Emerson Palmeiri, Antonio Rudiger and Ruben Loftus-Cheek will miss the Premier League game with Southampton this weekend.
Chelsea travel to the South Coast to take on Southampton at the St. Mary’s Stadium this weekend and the three aforementioned players won’t be a part of the squad to prosecute the game due to various injuries.
Brazilian-born Italian international Emerson Palmieri is the first choice left-back at Chelsea but he won’t be back from injury until after the international break as confirmed by Blues boss Frank Lampard.
He sustained the injury during the Premier League home defeat to Liverpool last month.
For England international midfielder Ruben Loftus-Cheek, he is still recuperating from the Achilles injury suffered during the summer.
The English midfielder suffered the injury during a club friendly in the summer.
Chelsea defender Antonio Rudiger has been unable to stay injury free since suffering a serious knee injury against Manchester United in a Premier League clash at the end of last season.
He has been restricted to just one appearance for Chelsea this season.
Without the aforementioned three players, Chelsea would be hoping to continue their impressive recent run in all competitions ahead of the league game at the home of Southampton.
Chelsea have won their last three games in all competitions.
