Champions League: Three key Chelsea players to miss Bayern Munich second leg

Chelsea will be without Christian Pulisic and Cesar Azpilicueta for their Champions League clash with Bayern Munich, after limping off in Saturday’s 2-1 FA Cup final defeat to Arsenal with hamstring issues.

Azpilicueta pulled up five minutes after giving away a penalty, that Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang converted to make it 1-1 following Pulisic’s opener.

Pulisic himself then succumbed to the same injury just four minutes after the break.

Towards the end of the game, Pedro suffered a suspected dislocated shoulder.

“I don’t know the full extent of the injuries, but I know its the hamstrings with Azpi and Christian,” Chelsea manager, Frank Lampard, said at his post-match news conference.

“They have to be scanned and assessed over the next few days. They clearly won’t be fit for next week.”

The Blues travel to Germany for the game with a 3-0 deficit.
