Big Blow For Chelsea As Star Got Injured This Evening During International Play

The 25-year-old had started the season well for the Blues but Frank Lampard could be forced to call on Marcos Alonso with his first choice now injured.

Chelsea left-back Emerson Palmieri limped off after just seven minutes of Italy’s Euro 2020 qualifier at Finland on Sunday night, with what appeared to be a thigh strain.

The 25-year-old, who has been in good form for Frank Lampard’s side so far this season, lined up alongside Blues team-mate Jorginho but was replaced by Roma’s Alessandro Florenzi with the game in its early stages.

If it is an injury which keeps him out for some time, it will come as a significant blow to Chelsea.

His fine performances have seen him open talks over a new contract at Stamford Bridge , and he has spoken about being in the form of his life.
