Werner, Havertz, Kepa: Chelsea injury updates and team news ahead of Krasnodar and Burnley

Chelsea are making their final preparations ahead of the Champions League clash against Krasnodar on Wednesday evening.

Blues boss Frank Lampard will want his side to return to winning ways after the goalless draw with Manchester United in the Premier League on Saturday evening.

The west Londoners are yet to pick up three points in Europe after the draw against Sevilla in gameweek one, so the trip to Krasnodar presents the perfect chance to get off the mark.

Here is a round-up of all the very latest Chelsea injury news.

Kepa Arrizabalaga

The 26-year-old has fallen out of favour with Lampard following the arrival of keeper Edouard Mendy.

The Spaniard didn’t play against United as he had a slight knock.

Lampard said: “Both [Thiago Silva and Christian Pulisic] are fine, we’ve got a pretty clean bill of health on that side, other than Kepa who has a shoulder issue so won’t travel to Manchester.

“The only other player out is Billy Gilmour who is obviously long-term, but he’ll be back soon.

“Petr Cech’s not coming [as a player].”

Mason Mount

The midfielder started against Sevilla but only made the bench for United on Saturday.

The 21-year-old came on in the 72nd minute for Kai Havertz in Manchester.

The England international was substituted for Hakim Ziyech in the second half in the Sevilla match but that was thought to have been a tactical call.
