Chelsea star in line for Arsenal start after injury scare as Christopher Nkunku update emerges

Chelsea’s upcoming Premier League match against Arsenal will take place next week, following a pause in the season due to international break. The Blues have had a disappointing start to the 2023/24 season, but they have recently gained momentum with three consecutive wins in all competitions. Their attack, however, has been wasteful, costing them valuable points in August and early September despite scoring seven goals.

Mykhailo Mudryk, Raheem Sterling, and Cole Palmer have been in great form recently, finding the back of the net consistently. Armando Broja and Nicolas Jackson have also contributed with goals in victories over Fulham and Burnley. However, Chelsea is still on the lookout for a new attacker in the January transfer window, with Ivan Toney being a potential option as he recently posted an update on social media.

The injury to Christopher Nkunku has been a major talking point for Chelsea, and a recent update has shed new light on the situation. Additionally, Palmer’s involvement in the injury list seemed likely after his muscular issue during international duty, but it has been confirmed that the problem is not serious.

Here are the latest Chelsea headlines on Saturday, October 14:

Palmer injury scare alleviated

Mauricio Pochettino has received positive news regarding Cole Palmer’s fitness, providing some relief from the ongoing issues faced by Chelsea at the start of the 2023/24 season.

During the late stages of the game against Burnley, Palmer appeared to suffer an injury as he clutched his hamstring and was subsequently substituted. However, he joined his teammates for international fixtures against Serbia and Ukraine, alleviating concerns. Though worries resurfaced when Palmer was seen holding his right quadricep and appeared uncomfortable, the update from England Under 21 boss Lee Carsley suggests that there is no significant issue, indicating that Palmer will likely start against Arsenal.
