Chelsea boss Graham Potter has ruled out four players from the weekend clash against Crystal Palace.

Chelsea would be away to Crystal Palace at Selhurst Park on Saturday afternoon, and Potter has confirmed that he’d be without four players.

Potter has revealed that the game has come too soon for N’Golo Kante who’s just coming back from injury, as well as Edouard Mendy.

“They’re not available,” reported Potter.

“They’re absolutely fine in terms of coming through the rehab stages. NG has been on the grass with the team, but not really full training.

“Edou is a bit further on, but hasn’t had enough to be involved at the weekend. Maybe next week for him.”

Potter also revealed that young midfielder Carney Chukwuemeka and also Marc Cucurella would miss the game through illness.

“We’ve got a bit of illness with Marc Cucurella and Carney,” added Potter.

“Apart from that, everybody is fit.”
