You thought it can't get any worse this week? Think again!

The ever reliable Simon Johnson from The Standard has today reported that David Luiz has suffered 'a major blow' in form of an 'injury set-back' and will be out on the sidelines for yet another month.

While it's doubtful that he would have been selected as a starter by Conte at this current moment, Christensen's recent dip in form (or let's call it a brain fart marathon) would make an availability of the Brazilian veteran a welcome sight, at the very least, especially as we're approaching the final sprint of the season. As has been reported multiple times in the past, it all seems to boil down to Sergio Aguero's ludicrous and dangerous tackle performed during last season's away game in December 2016 which Luiz has seemingly never fully recovered from.

As it stands, by the time David Luiz recovers and regains any sort of match fitness, Chelsea's season could basically be over. With his future up in the air, will we even see him pull on a blue shirt again?

Meanwhile, with Gary Cahill being dropped recently (and rightly so), Chelsea seem to be rather thin going into the a crucial part of the season, the next Premier League games being against Palace (H), Burnley (A), and Tottenham (H) over the next month. We undoubtedly need wins, no matter how and by what means, and not being able to draw on all possible resources isn't the best situation to be in, particularly with cup games coming up.

All doom and gloom at Chelsea Football Club nowadays, folks!
