Bad News: Chelsea star player unavailable to face Arsenal in the London derby

Despite the fact that the Blues have received a massive injury boost ahead of the London derby. They are most likely to miss some important players on Saturday.

Of course, the Gunners may miss the likes of Saka, Saliba, and Trossard. Mikel Arteta is most likely to come up with a different starting lineup for the Premier League game.

Mauricio Pochettino would want to continue their winning streak. At least, they have been unbeaten in their previous three matches in all competitions.

It’s obvious that the London derby doesn’t usually come easy. As a result, it’s definitely going to be a long 90 minutes for the two London clubs on Saturday.

The West London club have received a major injury boost ahead of the game. Reece James and Malo Gusto would be back for selection for the Premier League clash.

Also, Benoit Badiashile and Carney Chukwuemeka are back to training. Nevertheless, the Blues have received fresh bad news ahead of the London derby.

Reportedly, Axel Disasi is most likely to miss the Arsenal game on Saturday. The French centre-back currently injured and he may be unavailable.

The Blues new signing recently added to the French squad for their international games. He joined the squad along with one of his teammates, Malo Gusto.

The two Chelsea’s players joined the French national team as replacements for Jules Kound√© and Dayot Upamecano. Which was a milestone for them.

However, Axel Disasi later withdrew from the squad as a result of an injury. He’s currently injured in his left thigh, which may make him unavailable on Saturday.

In addition, the Frenchman will be assessed by the club’s medical staff. In all fairness, he’s most unlikely to start the London derby at Stamford Bridge.

His unavailability is bad news for the West London club. Because Mauricio Pochettino doesn’t have any ideal replacement for him in the squad.

Wesley Fofana and Trevoh Chalobah are still injured. Therefore, there is no player who can naturally play as a left centre-back for Chelsea.

However, Mauricio Pochettino is most likely to start Marc Cucurella as a centre-back. While Malo Gusto or Reece James starts as a right-back.

With Axel Disasi’s possible unavailability on Saturday. The Blues defense line would be in shambles as the Gunners balanced offensively.
