Sports Mole rounds up all of Chelsea's latest injury and suspension news ahead of their Premier League clash with Sheffield United.

Chelsea take on Sheffield United at Bramall Lane on Saturday evening looking to strengthen their hold of a top-four place in the Premier League standings.

Although they produced yet another unconvincing defensive display during the 3-2 victory at Crystal Palace, it moved the Blues past Leicester City and into third position.

However, Frank Lampard continues to have a number of fitness issues ahead of this contest, particularly in the middle of the pitch.

Here, Sports Mole rounds up all of Chelsea's latest injury and suspension news ahead of the showdown with the Blades.

N'Golo Kante

Status: Major doubt
Type of injury: Hamstring
Possible return date: July 14 (vs. Norwich City)

Lampard has suggested that Kante will be absent with a hamstring injury for "a week or so". Providing that Mateo Kovacic passes a fitness test, it appears unlikely that any risks will be taken on the World Cup winner before Tuesday's game with Norwich City.

Billy Gilmour

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

Reports have suggested that Gilmour faces a number of weeks on the sidelines with a knee injury. Although Gilmour played all but 10 minutes of the game at Selhurst Park, the Scot appeared to pick up the issue during the first half.

Mateo Kovacic

Status: Major doubt
Type of injury: Achilles
Possible return date: July 11 (vs. Sheffield United)

While Kovacic was ruled out of the meeting with Palace, Lampard acknowledged that the Croatian could return for the trip to Bramall Lane. As with Kante, risks are unlikely to be taken on both players, given the nature of their respective injuries, but Kovacic appears more likely to make an appearance in Yorkshire.

Fikayo Tomori

Status: Out
Type of injury: Muscle
Possible return date: July 14 (vs. Norwich City)

Having sustained what Lampard describes as a "minor" setback in training, Tomori is unlikely to come back into contention until the home meeting with Norwich three days later.


Chelsea have no players suspended for this match.
