Football-30 December 16:41 GMT
Maurizio Sarri has labelled the injury setback to Chelsea as a crisis after Giroud came off injured with Ruben Loftus-Cheek, Hudson Odoi, Pedro, Fabregas, all out with injuries.
“The problem is his ankle. I don’t know the severity. We have to wait for tomorrow. I think that, later in the evening, I will see the doctor for the first results, but I think the real result will only be known tomorrow.” He told the media after Chelsea’s 1-0 win at Crystal Palace.
“In the last few days we were a but unlucky. Yesterday in ten minutes we had three injuries – Fabregas, Loftus and Drinkwater – then Giroud today, and today we were already without Pedro and Odoi.
“We are in trouble because, in January, we have to play every three days.”
“Fabregas is a neck problem. The injury was in the last five minutes of training, so I’m not sure about whether he has to rest for two or for ten days. I don’t know about the moment.
“I will have a meeting with the doctor this evening.”
