Chelsea injury and team news: Expected return dates for Abraham, Loftus-Cheek and Jorginho

A trip to the south coast saw Chelsea take a point from the Vitality Stadium in an up and down game.

The Blues travelled to relegation threatened Bournemouth hoping to take full advantage on Leicester City’s slip up against Norwich on Friday night as they looked to close the gap on third place.

It started well for the Blues as Marcos Alonso put them ahead going into the half-time break.

However, two quick fire goals from Jefferson Lerma and Joshua King after the restart turned the game onto its head with the Cherries taking a 2-1 lead.

That lead would remain until the 85th minute, when Alonso stuck again to give Frank Lampard’s men a point to take away.

The Blues are next in action when they face Liverpool in the FA Cup fifth round on Tuesday.

Here’s the latest Chelsea injury news and expected return dates ahead of the game.

Tammy Abraham

Chelsea have been handed a fresh blow over Tammy Abraham.

Following two quickfire goals from Bayern after half-time, Abraham was introduced with half an hour remaining.

He looked set to go through on goal after the visitors had added a third, but was challenged by Jerome Boateng, with both players staying down after the tackle.

Abraham shook off the blow to carry on, but it looks as if it may have caused more damage for the England international.

Full story.

The striker was left out of the 2-2 draw with Bournemouth on Saturday, with Lampard delivering a worrying update on the player.

“He went to Barcelona, to have a look at his ankle for some more advice on it. I’ve got no update for you,” he said in his post-match press conference.

“I’m hoping it’s not a long-term injury but I can’t tell you if he’ll be ready for Tuesday or Saturday.”
