Sky Sports contributor Ben Dinnery has claimed Chelsea is trying to identify medical ‘problems’ within the medical department.
The Blues currently have a number of players sidelined due to injuries including Raheem Sterling and Christian Pulisic.
This has likely been a cause for their poor form this season, with Graham Potter’s side is tenth in the league below West London rivals Brentford and Fulham.
Chelsea have suffered have suffered some embarrassing defeats to the likes of Leeds United and Southampton in the 2022/23 campaign.
Speaking to Premier FPL Injuries, Dinnery says the ‘issues’ are being looked at by the club and their medical department as a whole.
He stated (11:03), “Raheem Sterling’s targeting, I think it’s Borussia Dortmund in the Champions League next month. Christian Pulisic, he may be on the sidelines until March. So there’s a lot of problems going on and I understand that the club are looking at trying to identify the issues within the medical department as to why they’re picking up so many problems.”
TIF’s view on Dinnery’s comments…
We believe that an investigation into the cause of the numerous injuries at Chelsea is the right move to take, as it simply cannot go on any longer.
When you consider the sheer number of Blues players currently out, something has to be at play it seems more than just a case of bad luck.
However, that’s not the only issue at the club there’s been poor decision-making on the pitch, with the debut of Joao Felix being one of many examples.
The Portuguese star joined from Atletico Madrid on loan and made his debut against Fulham. Felix was given a straight red after a horrific challenge on Kenny Tete and changed the game seeing Marco Silva’s side take all three points.
Potter has even addressed this following the West London Derby claiming that their ‘own errors’ cost them in the clash.
Chelsea has a number of players at their disposal even with injury blows to the team. Potter just needs to work out which players fit into his vision for the club and go forward from there.
