Chelsea’s bench for their game against Bournemouth is a concerning sight, with only two goalkeepers and two under-18 youth players.
The club is currently facing a major injury crisis, with Moises Caicedo missing the squad. The remaining six players, Cole Palmer, Ben Chilwell, and Ian Maatsen, have only played a Premier League start each.
The remaining six players have a total of six top flight minutes, making it difficult for Mauricio Pochettino to confidently use them for goals or back-up support. While more injured players may return, this is a low point for the club.
