Without their scoring touch the Blues would no doubt have been on the losing end of one of those matches but Palmer and his fellow attackers have found a way to keep the games even.

Things just go from bad to worse at Stamford Bridge with even more additions to their injury list this week. In the latest update provided by the club, there are 11 names in doubt for this match with the Toffees. Fernández and Disasi are the newest names with both being assessed.
