Chelsea are already suffering with disciplinary problems and that headache looks set to continue in the coming days/weeks as we head into the festive period.
With Cucurella and James already watching from the sidelines on Sunday (full report), a one in one out policy might just be forming as one Chelsea star is also one yellow off from a 1 match ban.
Premier League rules state that if a player picks up a yellow card five times before or on gameweek 19 they will serve a one game ban. As we are currently on gameweek 13 we still have some way to survive.
The latest player at risk is player of the month nominee, Raheem Sterling who has currently accumulated four yellows. A yellow card on Sunday would see him miss the Manchester United game, just as an added edge.
Meanwhile Caicedo, Chilwell, Enzo & Palmer are all two yellow cards away from a ban.
❗️Raheem Sterling is 1 Yellow Card away from a 1 game suspension.
