Chelsea "in trouble" ahead of FA Cup clash with Nottingham Forest

Maurizio Sarri says his Chelsea side are "in trouble" due to mounting injuries amid a hectic fixture schedule which includes Saturday’s FA Cup tie with Nottingham Forest.

Maurizio Sarri says Chelsea is in trouble

The Blues won 1-0 at Crystal Palace in the Premier League on Sunday and face Southampton on Wednesday in their first of seven games in January.



After that meeting with the Saints, there is a third round tie with the Reds at Stamford Bridge this weekend.

Boss Sarri, though, has a paucity of options as striker Olivier Giroud suffered an ankle injury, adding to injuries for Cesc Fabregas (neck), Ruben Loftus-Cheek (back), Pedro (hamstring) and Callum Hudson-Odoi (hamstring).

"We are in trouble because, in January, we have to play every three days," Sarri said.



"Fabregas' is a neck problem. The injury was in the last five minutes of training, so I'm not sure whether he has to rest for two or 10 days."

Eden Hazard, who had been deployed as a 'false nine' in four straight league games and could be required to play there once again.
