Arsenal & Chelsea stars miss England training

Ahead of England’s upcoming meeting with Brazil, a number of key players have set out training.

Arsenal’s Bukayo Saka, Bayern Munich’s Harry Kane, Chelsea’s Cole Palmer and Jordan Henderson all missed England training on Wednesday, with the quartet working alone in the gym at St George’s Park.

The rest of Gareth Southgate’s squad trained as normal and it remains to be seen whether the aforementioned players will have any involvement in Saturday’s friendly vs Brazil.

Why Saka, Palmer and Henderson are being kept to individual programmes remains unclear. Kane, though, is unable to take part in full training because he sustained an ankle injury by clashing with the post during Bayern Munich’s 5-2 win over Darmstadt in the Bundesliga on Saturday.
