Sarri: Chelsea are in trouble now
Chelsea head coach Maurizio Sarri said his team was in trouble after losing Giroud with an injury.
On Sunday, Giroud came out in the starting line-up of the Blues and helped his team to win at Crystal Palace. In that derby, Olivier scored only two goals from offside.
Giroud was injured during the episode with the second cancelled goal. Now, the 32-year-old Frenchman, who left Selhurst Park on crutches, will join Ruben Loftus-Chick, Cesc Fabregas, Pedro and Callum Hudson-Odoi in the infirmary. It worries Sarri in anticipation of a busy January’s schedule.
Sarri can’t say yet the exact timing of Giroud’s recovery. He has problems with the ankle. The Italian thinks that his team has been very unlucky for the last weeks. The team is suffering from a lot of injuries. This is an extremely depressing situation because Chelsea will have to play every 3 days in January.
