Sarri Rules Out Two Key Players from Crystal Palace Fixture

Chelsea manager Maurizio Sarri has revealed Pedro and Callum Hudson-Odoi are injured and out of the club’s next game.

Chelsea take on Crystal Palace in the Premier League on Sunday in their final match of the year as they look to close out 2018 on a high.

The Blues will be without Pedro and Hudson-Odoi as they look to claim three points and keep their place in the top four.

“Two problems, the first more serious with Pedro,” Sarri revealed in his pre-match press conference.

“The second problem was Odoi, it’s not a serious problem but I don’t think he will play in the next match.”

This comes as a blow to Sarri as he has over and over again utilised Pedro in the league, with the Spaniard playing in 17 of the club’s 19 games so far.

Hudson-Odio has been a lesser feature in the Chelsea starting XI, however, he did play in their win over Watford on Boxing Day.
