Chelsea team news: Injury, suspension list vs. Slavia Prague

Sports Mole rounds up Chelsea’s latest injury and suspension news ahead of Thursday’s Europa League quarter-final second leg against Slavia Prague.

Chelsea will be looking to return to winning ways on Thursday when they welcome Slavia Prague to Stamford Bridge for the second leg of their Europa League quarter-final.

The Blues won the first leg 1-0 in the Czech capital through a late Marcos Alonso header, but they were beaten 2-0 by Liverpool in the Premier League on Sunday.

Maurizio Sarri‘s men still occupy a top-four spot, though, and they are the strong favourites to come out on top in this week’s return fixture against Slavia.

Here, Sports Mole rounds up the latest injury and suspension news for Sarri’s side ahead of the clash in West London.

Status: Out
Type of injury: Knee
Possible return date: Unknown

Rudiger injured his knee during the first half of Chelsea’s defeat at Anfield and, after failing to run it off, had to be replaced before the interval. Sarri is hopeful that it is not too serious, but the centre-back will play no part on Thursday.

Another player out of the picture at Stanford Bridge, Van Ginkel is nearing a return after a serious knee injury. The Dutchman’s return is unlikely to come before the end of the campaign, though.
