Chelsea injury update: latest information and expected return dates for Ben Chilwell, Christopher Nkunku, and Romeo Lavia. Chelsea’s next London derby against Brentford comes this weekend, and they will be hoping to quickly put their late collapse against Arsenal behind them.
Cole Palmer and Mykhailo Mudryk’s goals gave the Blues a 2-0 lead over Mikel Arteta’s title contenders at Stamford Bridge on Saturday night. However, Mauricio Pochettino’s team was prevented from making a statement after a mistake by Robert Sanchez allowed Declan Rice to cut the lead before a skillful back-post equalizer by Leandro Trossard.
As his team attempted to win four straight games in all competitions, Pochettino rightfully bemoaned the loss of two crucial points. However, they must quickly forget about the setback and get ready to host Brentford, a rival from West London, before hosting Championship team Blackburn in the Carabao Cup last-16.
Before a hectic run-up to the holiday season, the Blues have a number of ongoing injury concerns, which has become all too common at the Bridge in recent years.
Here are the most recent Chelsea injury updates along with possible return dates.
After being strongly connected to a summer departure, Chalobah has not yet been on the field for Chelsea this season. It is anticipated that he will leave the team in January.
The academy-graduate defender’s attempt to recover from a thigh injury he received in August was hindered, the Blues confirmed last week.
Chalobah may have already played his final game for Chelsea, although it is unclear when he will be available again.
