Pedro and Kepa can miss matches against Malmö FF and Man City
Chelsea performers Pedro Rodriguez, Kepa Arrizabalaga and Davide Zappacosta risk missing their next two matches against Malmo in the Europa League and Manchester City in the League Cup final. It is reported by BBC Sport.
The Pensioners’ goalkeeper Kepa Arrizabalaga injured his hamstring and will be replaced by either Willy Caballero or Rob Green in the near match.
Pedro has gastrointestinal problems, while Zappacosta has a fever.
Moreover, Chelsea plan to change their mentor: they added Laurent Blanc to their shortlist of candidates to replace current head coach Maurizio Sarri.
Over the last weeks, Sarri has lost the trust of his own players, the club bosses and fans.
The upcoming matches against Malmo in the Europa League, Manchester City in the League Cup and against Tottenham in the Premier League can prejudge his fate.
