Chelsea may be facing something of a crisis when they head to the Emirates this weekend, with Didier Drogba joining Loic Remy and Diego Costa as doubts for the game, as reported by ESPN.
Costa has suffered badly with injuries in the second half of the season, and was thought to be a doubt for the game. Remy is also likely to be watching from the sidelines, with the Frenchman still recovering from a calf injury.
Drogba has been leading the line for the Blues in recent weeks, but after suffering an ankle injury he too looks likely to miss out.
The Ivorian was set to take part in a charity match earlier this week, but was forced to withdraw.

Chelsea may not be able to field a fully-fit striker this Sunday, but Costa may yet make some impact on the game.
ESPN report that he is back in training, and claim he could still make an appearance. The former Atletico Madrid hit-man will surely not be fully fit and at his sharpest however, so hopefully we can take advantage and end Arsene Wenger’s poor run against Jose Mourinho.
