Chelsea team news: Injury, suspension list vs. Brighton & Hove Albion

Sports Mole rounds up Chelsea’s latest injury and suspension news ahead of Wednesday’s Premier League clash with Brighton & Hove Albion.

Chelsea‘s quest for Champions League football sees them host relegation-threatened Brighton & Hove Albion on Wednesday night.

The Blues needed a dramatic and controversial late show against Cardiff City to keep within touching distance of the top four on Sunday, with just one point now separating them from Tottenham Hotspur and Manchester United.

Pressure continues to grow on manager Maurizio Sarri, though, and anything less than a midweek win at Stamford Bridge will only raise more questions over his future at the club.

Here, Sports Mole rounds up the latest injury and suspension news for Chelsea ahead of the contest.
