Our injury issue continues

Last season, we discussed our injury crisis in depth. The new season starts with another staff, but there are already plenty of injuries so far.

Isco has had a relapse from his back pain. Jovic suffered a knock during yesterday’s training; it is serious enough that Ancelotti and his staff are quite worried. Hazard continues to training alone, but Ancelotti is hopefull he will be available for El Clásico. They are all out for the UCL game against Shakhtar.
