Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel has confirmed that Tammy Abraham suffered a fresh injury before the Sheffield United clash.
The Blues booked their spot in the FA Cup semi-final after a hard-fought 2-0 win over the Blades earlier today.
In the lead-up to the game, Tuchel said that Abraham would be available for selection after overcoming an ankle problem.
However, the German has now confirmed that the striker suffered another setback during the final training session.
He told Chelseafc.com: “He had a bit of a re-injury in a training accident, exactly on the same spot where the first injury was so he is in pain, and there was no chance he could join us today.”
Abraham has had an impressive campaign with 12 goals and six assists in all competitions for the Blues.
He was recently omitted from the matchday squad for three league games before being sidelined with an ankle injury.
The marksman will be hoping to recover during the international break and make himself available in a fornight’s time.
