Palmer played the whole ninety minutes on Saturday as Manchester City narrowly defeated the Blues in the FA Cup semi-final. However, the 21-year-old is unwell ahead of our journey to the Emirates.

Due to this, Palmer has been excluded from team practise, and Pochettino said the England international will be called up at a later time.

I don’t think he can be involved today, but we need to assess tomorrow (Tuesday) morning,” the head coach of the Blues stated at the team’s pregame press conference.

We must evaluate tomorrow before making a decision. Perhaps he isn’t well enough to play, even if he feels better tomorrow. We hope he gets over this and is able to get back into things as soon as possible.

Cole may be absent, but we always think we can prevail. The team and the collective are what matter most. Although he is a vital member of the club and is doing admirably for us, Chelsea has several players who are capable of carrying out the task.

Palmer was joined in the starting lineup on Saturday by Gusto, who played for 79 minutes until Axel Disasi took his place. In the meanwhile, Chilwell played the final few minutes after replacing Marc Cucurella.
