Chelsea injury news: Expected return dates for Pulisic, Loftus-Cheek & Kante ahead of Liverpool

Chelsea remain in pole position for Champions League qualification.

The Blues could only draw 2-2 against Bournemouth at the weekend – with Marcos Alonso rescuing Frank Lampard’s side from defeat with a late goal to earn a point at the Vitality Stadium.

However, with Manchester United and Tottenham Hotspur both failing to win the following day, the west London outfit are still three points clear in fourth place with 10 games remaining.

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

It’s no secret that Lampard has got a number of injury problems on his hands at the moment, but could he receive a boost ahead of the big game at Stamford Bridge?

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.”
