Cole Palmer’s participation in the crucial upcoming match against Arsenal is in jeopardy after he was dismissed from the England U21s squad. 

Ever since his £40 million summer transfer to Stamford Bridge, the former Manchester City player has been a bright presence. 

This season in the Premier League, Palmer has contributed one goal and one assist, effectively addressing Chelsea’s scoring woes.

His performance in the recent 4-1 victory over Burnley was exceptional. However, he suffered a dead leg during England’s 9-1 triumph over Serbia and was consequently removed from the squad by Lee Carsley.

“I think Cole would be fine, but we don’t take any chances with any of the players,” said Carsley via the Evening Standard.

“If there is a slight doubt that they’re going to miss a game at the weekend, we get them back to the clubs as quickly as we can.

“We could’ve kept Cole here another day and see how it was, but we didn’t think it was right. Everyone else is fine, a few colds and sniffles.”

Chelsea is about to embark on a challenging schedule after the international break, and their upcoming match against Arsenal holds significant importance in setting the team’s momentum.

Supporters of the Blues will be disheartened to witness one of their most promising talents add to the continuously expanding list of injuries.
