Azpilicueta, Pulisic, Pedro all out for Bayern Clash

Three Chelsea players pulled up with injuries during an FA cup loss to london rivals Arsenal.

Cesar Azpilicueta was carried off with an apparent hamstring injury moments after giving away a penalty which Aubameyang converted.

Christian Pulisic also pulled up with a similar injury after rolling a shot wide of goal just after the restart.

Pedro was given oxygen as he was stretched off after seemingly dislocating his shoulder.

Meanwhile, Frank Lampard said he doesn’t know the full timeframe of when they would be out but confirms hamstring injuries for both Azpilicueta and Pulisic.

"I don't know the full extent of the injuries, but I know its the hamstrings with Azpi and Christian," 


"They have to be scanned and assessed over the next few days. They clearly won't be fit for next week."



Lampard couldn’t confirm Pedro’s injury as he didn’t see him as he was carried off


"I believe it could be a dislocated shoulder but don't go too soon on that”


"I've not seen him yet as he was whisked away so it's a disappointing end as that's probably going to be his last game for Chelsea.


"He's been an incredible servant and I'm disappointed for him."
