No… The 22-year-old Chelsea player will not play against Crystal Palace tomorrow, according to Mauricio Pochettino.
The first Premier League match following Christmas is tomorrow’s match between Chelsea and Crystal Palace. Chelsea manager Mauricio Pochettino has provided some early team news.
Due to his persisting injury worries, he informed the official club website that Enzo Fernandez will not be eligible to play against the London rivals tomorrow.
Fernandez was among those who did not play in the last game prior to the historic day at Molineux, where the Blues were defeated by their own fiercest adversaries.
Raheem Sterling should take the majority of the blame for their numerous big-time misses.
Both Moises Caicedo and him were unavailable, with the latter being unable to attend the match because of illness.
Pochettino stated that Fernandez would still not be able to participate, despite having good news about the latter.
Fernandez is unfit to deal with Palace.
“We hope Moi yes, but Enzo no [not available vs. Crystal Palace],” he stated. On Sunday, I felt better. He separated himself because he had a high fever. We’re hoping he can work out a little to be ready for Palace.

Pochettino will have a lot of questions to address in the midfield position before tomorrow’s London derby. During the last game, Lesley Ugochukwu was also forced off due to an injury.
Conor Gallagher, who has started every game in which he has been available under Mauricio Pochettino, is probably going to play again.
Cole Palmer is one player who most likely won’t be in that midfield because of his suspension for receiving his fifth yellow card of the year.
The manager will be especially disappointed in the way the England international accepted the booking because it came after he kicked the ball out of play due to a call that went against him.
