Chelsea-owned Nathaniel Chalobah disappointed to miss Leicester City v Burnley in Premier League

Nathaniel Chalobah is disappointed to miss Burnley’s Premier League clash against Leicester City on Saturday.

Nathaniel Chalobah has admitted his disappointment at missing out on Premier League action for Burnley at the weekend.

The 19-year-old suffered a freak injury on Tuesday and has been ruled out of the Clarets’ clash against Leicester City at the King Power Stadium on Saturday.

The Chelsea-owned teenager, who can play both as a midfielder and a defender, suffered a kick in the throat during an Under-21 match on Tuesday.

Chalobah will sit out Burnley’s match against the Foxes and is understandably dejected, taking to social networking site Twitter to express his disappointment.

Chalobah joined Burnley on loan from Chelsea on transfer deadline day until January 2015. He had made just one appearance in the Premier League so far this season, and his latest injury will certainly come as a blow to him.
