Chelsea midfielder N'Golo Kante has reportedly been ruled out for the rest of October 2017 following the injury the Frenchman sustained while on global duty.
Saturday's Premier League clash with bottom-of-the-table Palace should present few problems despite the absence of Kante, but the European clashes against in-form Roma could prove a greater challenge without the former Leicester City player's influence.
The health of Kante and Alvaro Morata is sure to be on the agenda at Friday's pre-match media conference. Sadio Mane returned to Liverpool with a hamstring issue sustained while in action with Senegal, while Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger this morning confirmed that Shkodran Mustafi is sidelined for six weeks with a thigh issue picked up with the Germany national team.
Broker Outlook For The Week Ahead HDFC Bank Limited (NYSE:HDB)
Hbk Investments LP decreased Terraform Pwr Inc (NASDAQ:TERP) stake by 172,104 shares to 11,942 valued at $143,000 in 2017Q2. The Company's distilled spirits include bourbon and rye whiskeys, and grain neutral spirits, including vodka and gin.
It is more realistic that, if fit, Morata will be kept in reserve for next Wednesday's Champions League tie at home to Roma, where the Blues will be seeking a third win from three Group C games.
There could be good news for Chelsea, too.
Whether it comes at Palace or against Roma remains to be seen.
