Chelsea team news: Injury, suspension list vs. Leicester City

:Headline: Chelsea team news: Injury, suspension list vs. Leicester City:
Sports Mole rounds up Chelsea's latest injury and suspension news ahead of Saturday's Premier League meeting with Leicester City.
By , Senior Reporter | 25d

Chelsea travel to the East Midlands to face Leicester City on Saturday afternoon looking to close the gap on their third-placed opponents.

Having picked up just one point from games with Newcastle United and Arsenal, the Blues are now eight points adrift of the Foxes in the Premier League table.

However, Frank Lampard was able to rest a number of players for the FA Cup tie at Hull City, which may benefit his squad against a team who have been playing twice a week since the turn of the year.

Here, Sports Mole rounds up Chelsea's latest injury and suspension news ahead of the clash at the King Power Stadium.


Ruben Loftus-Cheek


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

Loftus-Cheek ruptured his Achilles tendon while representing Chelsea in a post-season friendly ahead of the 2019 Europa League final. The Englishman's recovery has been slow, although the Blues posted a photo on social media last week showing the midfielder beginning ball work with the rest of the group.


Christian Pulisic


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

Lampard recently confirmed that Pulisic would be on the sidelines "for a few weeks" having picked up an adductor injury during a training session ahead of the FA Cup clash with Nottingham Forest. Lampard has suggested that the USA international will not be available until after the club's brief mid-season break.


Tammy Abraham


Status: Major doubt
Type of injury: Ankle
Possible return date: February 1 (vs. Leicester)

Abraham missed out at the weekend courtesy of the ankle injury which he sustained during the latter stages of the draw with Arsenal on January 21. Without providing any specific dates, Lampard has suggested that the England international should not be sidelined in the long term.


CHELSEA'S SUSPENSION LIST

Chelsea have no players suspended for the FA Cup fixture.
