No Caicedo in training photos leads to panic about this

Chelsea fans are starting to panic about Moises Caicedo.

The Ecuador star missed last weekend’s game against Bournemouth after returning from international duty in South America late, and appearing to have picked up a minor injury in the process.

We all thought he’d ben back in training this week, and would easily have time to recover and get ready for this Sunday’s game against Aston Villa.

But the images from training today show no sign of Caicedo, and there’s a growing fear that this injury is keeping him out of the regular sessions this week, and that’s putting his participation this weekend at risk.

It’s still very much on the cusp – if he has indeed missed training today and yesterday, it’s feasible he trains tomorrow and Friday and does preparation Saturday and is ready for the Sunday game.

If he misses tomorrow too, it’s hard to see that being an option. Lesley Ugochukwu stepped up capably in his absence, but it’s no fun to see our injury crisis roll on.
