Mikel Arteta reacts to Cole Palmer possibly missing Arsenal vs Chelsea

 Arsenal manager, Mikel Arteta, has insisted Chelsea are not a one-man team, amid news that Cole Palmer is a major doubt for their Premier League clash on Tuesday.

According to Arteta, the Blues have players of “quality” all over the pitch.

Palmer is Chelsea’s top scorer this season with 23 goals in all competitions.

The 21-year-old was pictured with strapping around his left thigh ahead of the side’s FA Cup semi-final defeat to Manchester City and appeared to be nursing an injury at Wembley.

However, the club confirmed that an illness could keep Palmer out of the trip to the Emirates.

But Arteta said: “I don’t know… we have no control over their availability. We only have control over ours.

“Whatever they put out, when you look at the squad, the quality that they have, it’s great.

“I think they are doing very, very well and much better than people say. It will be a tough match, for sure.”
