Chelsea injury update ahead of Krasnodar clash

Gilmour could be only absentee for Chelsea vs Krasnodar

Chelsea have no fresh injury concerns to deal with ahead of Wednesday’s Champions League group stage game against Krasnodar.

The Blues have struggled since the international break with three draws and two of those have been goalless stalemates.

Kepa Arrizabalaga missed the recent encounter with a shoulder concern, but he is likely to return for the trip to Russia.

Elsewhere, Billy Gilmour is the only long-term absentee. He has started light training with the physios and should return next month.

The youngster has been out injured (knee ligaments) since July this year and he will initially feature for the development squad on his comeback.

Chelsea will go into the Krasnodar clash as the favourites and they will be aiming to register their first win in four competitive games.

Hakim Ziyech has had three cameo appearances of less than 60 minutes combined since recovering from a knee injury.

The Morocco international can be fancied to make his maiden Blues start at the Krasnodar Stadium on Wednesday night.
