Chelsea’s recent spate of hamstring injuries could potentially be down to a heavy workload, according to medical experts.
Alvaro Morata and N’Golo Kante are currently sidelined through the injury, while Antonio Conte suffered a further blow at Crystal Palace on Saturday with Victor Moses leaving the pitch after 39 minutes.
The Nigerian is now the third player in two weeks to suffer with a hamstring injury and he is set to be kept on the sidelines for at least four weeks.
Morata, who came off injured against Manchester City last month, is expected to return for tomorrow’s Champions League game with Roma, while Kante is set to miss the remaining games in October.
According to The Telegraph, medical experts believe the club’s busy schedule this season is the reason for the team picking up so many hamstring injuries at present.
Conte’s team are back in Europe this season, while the majority of the players spent the past two weeks on international duty with their respective countries.
The Italian’s tough training sessions are potentially another factor as to why the club have so many hamstring injuries at present.
Although it’s good news that Morata will be back for tomorrow’s game against Roma, the injury crisis is not what the club need at present after back-to-back defeats in the league.
With a further five games remaining in October, Conte will have his fingers crossed that the number of players in the treatment room does not increase.
