Chelsea duo Emerson Palmieri and Andreas Christensen picked up injuries in Chelsea’s 2-1 defeat to Liverpool on Sunday.
Christensen suffered a knee injury while Emerson suffered a thigh injury.
Chelsea boss Frank Lampard has revealed when he expects both players to return to the team.
“Andreas is not too severe,” Lampard told Chelsea’s official website. “Hopefully he won’t be out for too long but I can’t give a timeframe.
“Emerson now won’t be back until the other side of the international break [which is during mid-October].
“It will be a few weeks because it is the reoccurrence of an injury so we have to be a bit careful with it.”
