The latest injury report ahead of the West London derby is out and the number isn’t getting any smaller. The blues will be without several players with the latest update tallying as much as 12, with 9 guaranteed to be out.
It has today been confirmed by Chelsea Football Club once again that Chilwell, Badiashile and Chukwuemeka are in full training. This is a welcome boost as both have spent the majority of the season on the sidelines this season.
Chelsea are still set to be without Chalobah, Cucurella, James, Fofana, Lavia, Nkunku, Sanchez and Ugochukwu for this upcoming Premier league match which only adds to Pochettino’s troubles.
Chalobah is close to a full training return.
Reports from France on Monday suggested Nkunku would be back in time so we await to see what the final verdict is but the injury report states he is undergoing “rehabilitation programme.”
Jackson will miss the game due to the African Cup of Nations kicking off this weekend.
