Maurizio Sarri says he could be forced to tweak his side who will take on Fulham on Saturday.
Fulham finally booted out boss Claudio Ranieri after four months in the job as manager.
Fulham has turned to Scott Parker to manage the club, who are standing on the relegation cliff and could be topple over back to the Championship after just recently clawing back, following years of absence.
Sarri wants to make crucial changes in the game against Fulham, following a defeat to Manchester City on spot-kicks last Sunday, which was mixed with conflicts. And a hard earned win against a strong Tottenham side at Stamford Bridge.
Blues are still chasing a top four finish, and a win against Fulham is crucial. Chelsea will look to slice the gap between them and Arsenal who have a hold on the fourth spot.
Chelsea have no records of injury, however, Sarri who spoke at a media conference on Friday, admitted that “I need to value the recovery of every single player and then we have to decide.”
The Italian boss was caught in a web of conflict earlier in the week following winter record signing Kepa Arrizabalaga’s refusal to exit the pitch in Carabao Cup’s final against Manchester City.
The Basque native was trimmed out of Sarri’s starting XI against Spurs. It is unclear when he can return. The Chelsea boss did not clearly spell out when the Spaniard will return between the sticks, however, it could be two matches after Fulham’s.
