Chelsea wing-back Victor Moses went down injured with about 10 minutes left in the first half of Chelsea’s Premier League fixture at Crystal Palace. The game was already one to not remember with Chelsea drawing 1-1 against a team that hadn’t grabbed a point yet in the season, and then Moses went down to make the concerns even worse.

And then Palace took the lead for the second time before the half-time whistle, even.

The injury appeared to be yet another hamstring injury, with Moses pulling up immediately after a spring into the penalty area. As he limped off he was seen holding the back of his leg. The injury would be the third hamstring injury in the last few weeks for Chelsea — bad news tend to come in threes after all.

Davide Zappacosta came on for Moses shortly after.

The last thing Chelsea need at this point is another key starter out for multiple weeks. With the Champions League and Premier League schedule heating up, Chelsea’s depth will be tested even further.
