Chelsea: Many fans frustrated by update on Emerson Palmieri’s injury - Chelsea

Frank Lampard has confirmed that Emerson Palmieri will not be available for Chelsea until after the international break, as reported by Simon Phillips.

The full-back came off during the 2-1 loss against Liverpool with just 15 minutes gone, as per WhoScored, after a recurrence of his thigh injury.

This offered an indication that he may be out for some time, which has now been confirmed:

The Italy international will be a miss for Chelsea, as in his five Premier League starts so far, he has averaged 3 tackles, 2 interceptions, 1 clearance, 1.2 key passes, 1.6 dribbles and 1 cross per game, while also having completed 84.1% of his passes – statistics that highlight just how well-rounded the 25-year-old’s game has been.

Many Chelsea fans are seeing his loss as a big blow for the side due to his recent level of performance, with some beginning to wonder whether they will ever get to see their defence at full strength.
