Please make the international break stop! Chelsea are experiencing injury after injury with Mateo Kovacic the latest to come off injured featuring for Croatia last night.
Reece James, N’Golo Kante and Andreas Christensen have all suffered a similar fate already during this break, and even Ethan Ampadu went off injured yesterday.
It’s left Chelsea fans screaming what on earth is going on?
If this was just an isolated occasion then it perhaps wouldn’t be as bad, but it seems to be a given now that every international break is going to lead to injuries to key Chelsea players.
And the worst thing is, when this one is finally over, we have to go through it all again this time next month, right before we face Manchester City.
Blues fans took to social media last night after the latest injury curse struck, and it’s safe to say that the decision is that we banish international football forever and beyond!

INTERNATIONAL BREAK CASUALTIES
Reece James 🤕
Most likely the above players won’t feature against NEW. Which means in the midfield Billy Gilmour to double pivot with Jorginho 😉
(You’ll go to prison if you thought of Barkley to feature) #BillyGilmourSZN

4 Injuries (and counting) we still have players playing tomorrow, Tuesday & Pulisic into Wednesday Morning. (so don’t expect to start Saturday) We also have another International Break Next Month
Some Good Fixtures next month but really not worth the risk of potential injuries.

Kovacic & Ampadu both injured in the Wales / Croatia game.
Please make the international break stop now.

You know what I'm done with the international break. If another player gets injured in the next few days, I will literally never watch international football ever again.

This international break has literally kicked Chelsea in the ball sack!
