Ben Chilwell is set to be sidelined for a number of weeks after sustaining a hamstring injury ahead of Chelsea's Premier League clash against Fulham. The England international has become the latest player to join the Blues' treatment room leaving Mauricio Pochettino even shorter of options heading into the next fixture.
A number of players are currently unavailable for selection including the likes of Reece James, Christopher Nkunku and Wesley Fofana. Chelsea have been handed a huge boost ahead of Monday's fixture at Craven Cottage with an update regarding Carney Chukwuemeka.
The midfielder has been out since the second weekend of the season having sustained a knee injury in the 3-1 loss to West Ham United. Defender Benoit Badiashile continues to recover from his knock and is in 'partial team training'.
However, there is bad news regarding Ben Chilwell. The left-back is still 'undergoing assessment' following Wednesday's Carabao Cup win over Brighton.
Speaking ahead of the Fulham clash, Pochettino said: «It was bad that it was in the last minute of the game, and of course, we are really sad about the news around Ben [Chilwell]. Time, it's difficult to know now because it was less than two days since it happened.
»We need to assess him over the next few days, and for sure the club will communicate," the Chelsea boss added. So, with reports suggesting Chilwell could be sidelined for up to four weeks, football.london has taken a look at the games the England international could miss.
