Ben Chilwell, Levi Colwill - Chelsea injury news ahead of Sheffield United clash

:Headline: Ben Chilwell, Levi Colwill - Chelsea injury news ahead of Sheffield United clash:
Sports Mole rounds up all of Chelsea's injury and suspension news ahead of Sunday's Premier League clash with Sheffield United.
Sports Mole

Chelsea return to Premier League action on Sunday evening when they square off against Sheffield United at Bramall Lane.

The game will be played just three days on from one of the most thrilling endings in Premier League history - Chelsea scored twice beyond the 99th minute to record a 4-3 victory over Manchester United.

However, the Blues still remain in 10th place in the standings, keeping the stakes high ahead of their showdown with the division's bottom-placed side.

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


Romeo Lavia

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

Summer midfield signing Romeo Lavia has been a perennial occupier of the treatment room all season long, and due to a setback in his recuperation from a thigh injury, the Belgian will not play again for the rest of the campaign.


Christopher Nkunku

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

Another luckless 2023 arrival, Christopher Nkunku, has been sidelined since the beginning of March with his own hamstring issue, and while a comeback in April is not beyond the realm of possibility, no date has been pencilled in yet.


Wesley Fofana

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

Nkunku's compatriot Wesley Fofana is still on the mend following his latest severe knee injury, and at the start of last month, Pochettino conceded that the defender is unlikely to play again before the campaign concludes.


Reece James

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

Another injury-riddled defender, Reece James, is no closer to making his comeback from a hamstring injury, but Pochettino is keeping his fingers crossed that he will be available before the end of the campaign.


Lesley Ugochukwu

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

Lesley Ugochukwu is yet to turn out for Chelsea in 2024 owing to a hamstring injury, and he is still undergoing his recuperation programme with no timescale on his return.


Levi Colwill

Status: Major doubt
Type of injury: Toe
Possible return date: April 7 (vs. Sheffield United)

Levi Colwill is working his way back from a painful toe injury and, as of Wednesday, was still being restricted to his rehabilitation programme. However, of the injured outfield contingent, the defender is believed to be the nearest to a return.


Robert Sanchez

Status: Major doubt
Type of injury: Unspecified
Possible return date: April 7 (vs. Sheffield United)

Goalkeeper Robert Sanchez had only just come back from a knee injury and played two FA Cup ties before picking up another unexplained issue. As it stands, it is believed that the Spaniard may have a small chance of returning to the substitutes' bench.


Ben Chilwell

Status: Major doubt
Type of injury: Illness
Possible return date: April 7 (vs. Sheffield United)

Ben Chilwell could not contribute to the draw with Burnley due to a blow to the knee, before illness kept him sidelined for the Man United match. Providing that he can return to training before the trip to Yorkshire, the left-back may be able to be selected on the substitutes' bench.


CHELSEA'S SUSPENSION LIST

Chelsea have no suspended players for this match.
