Latest Chelsea Injury News And Expected Return Dates: Updates On Levi Colwill, Ben Chilwell And 6 Others

Chelsea defender Benoit Badiashile was not able to make the matchday squad for the 3-2 win over Newcastle on Monday evening.

The Frenchman has recovered from a groin injury but he has yet to take part in full training. A return for the FA Cup quarter-final tie this weekend, though, is a possibility.

Expected Return Date – Sunday 17th March v Leicester City (FA Cup)

Christopher Nkunku is not expected to return to fitness this side of the international break. The Frenchman sustained a hamstring injury after the Carabao Cup final defeat to Liverpool last month.

Manager Mauricio Pochettino has said that the midfielder would require 3 to 4 weeks to recover so he won’t be in contention to play Leicester.

Expected Return Date – Saturday 30th March v Burnley
