Lampard reveals injury blow ahead of Arsenal vs Chelsea clash

Chelsea defender, Kalidou Koulibaly is the latest player to face the threat of seeing injury bring his 2022/2023 season to a premature close.

The Senegal international defender, who joined the Blues for £34 million ($43m) last summer, has picked up an unfortunate hamstring problem.

It forced him out of a Champions League quarter-final clash with Real Madrid and sees him facing the same fate as team-mates Reece James and Mason Mount.

Interim Blues boss Frank Lampard told reporters on Monday: “Koulibaly is out for a while still. I think it will be a tight call for the end of the season.

“He’s working away [from the group]. I’ve been impressed with him as a professional, he’s doing his job very well, but unfortunately the injury was a tough one.”
