Sports Mole rounds up Chelsea's latest injury and suspension news ahead of Wednesday's Champions League showdown with Ajax.

Chelsea play their third Champions League group game of the season on Wednesday when they travel to Amsterdam to take on Ajax.

Frank Lampard's men enter the game on the back of five consecutive wins in all competitions, continued at the weekend as Marcos Alonso's second half goal helped them see off Newcastle United at Stamford Bridge.

The Blues are currently third in their Champions League group with one win from their opening two matches, while their Dutch opponents are top with two wins from two and two clean sheets to boot.

Here, Sports Mole rounds up the latest injury and suspension list for the West Londoners ahead of their game with Ajax.

N'Golo Kante

Status: Major doubt
Type of injury: Groin
Possible return date: October 23 (vs. Ajax)

The tireless midfielder picked up a groin injury while on international duty with France and, although he missed the weekend's game, he could be fit enough for a spot on the bench for Wednesday's trip to the Dutch capital.

Andreas Christensen

Status: Out
Type of injury: Hamstring
Possible return date: November 2 (vs. Watford)

The Dane also picked up an injury while on international duty, with Lampard saying that he would be out until the start of November.

Emerson Palmieri

Status: Minor doubt
Type of injury: Thigh
Possible return date: October 23 (vs. Ajax)

The Italian international was rushed back last time out, which led to him aggravating the same injury. Although he is believed to be on target with his recovery, he is unlikely to be considered for a starting berth.

Antonio Rudiger

Status: Out
Type of injury: Groin
Possible return date: Unknown

Rudiger picked up a groin injury last month and, while he is believed to be healthy now, the German international is still working towards full match fitness.

Ruben Loftus-Cheek

Status: Out
Type of injury: Achilles
Possible return date: Unknown

Loftus-Cheek has been out since May with a major Achilles injury and he is believed to still be at least a month from being considered for selection.

Marco van Ginkel

Status: Out
Type of injury: Knee
Possible return date: Unknown

The Dutchman is back to running in training but there is no timetable yet for his potential return to first-team football for the Blues.

Ross Barkley

Status: Out
Type of injury: Ankle
Possible return date: Unknown

Barkley was forced off before half time against Newcastle after rolling his ankle and, while Lampard described it as 'not looking good', the scale of any potential injury is not yet known.


Chelsea have no players who are suspended for this match.
