'We need to check tomorrow': Pochettino reacts to Palmer injury rumours

Rumours have emerged that Cole Palmer played through injury in the FA Cup semi-final against Man City.

When asked about it at a press conference, Mauricio Pochettino tried to play down the concerns but didn't outright reject them.

"It’s normal. He’s tired, but I don’t believe he has a problem," the head coach said.

"We need to check tomorrow, but I hope there’s nothing more wrong than his tiredness."

Palmer has scored 23 goals across all competitions in his first season for Chelsea, so losing him for the run-in would not be ideal.

The Blues are taking on Arsenal on Tuesday, so we should learn soon whether he has any serious issues.
