Chelsea midfielder Ruben Loftus-Cheek is back in contention for tonight’s game against Bayern Munich after overcoming a minor niggle.
Willian, however, did not travel out to Germany due to an ongoing Achilles problem, which also kept him out of the FA Cup final.
Captain Cesar Azpilicueta and Christian Pulisic are also unavailable with both having sustained hamstring injuries in the defeat to Arsenal at Wembley last weekend. Pedro is also ruled out having had surgery on a dislocated shoulder. Due to severity of the injury, it means the Spaniard has played his last game for the Blues
Manager Frank Lampard’s only other injury absentee heading into the match at the Allianz Arena is Billy Gilmour, with the midfielder expected to be out until October with a knee injury he picked up in the win against Crystal Palace last month.
With a number of injury problems, combined with suspensions to two other players, Chelsea have a massive task to overhaul a 3-0 deficit from the first leg of their Champions League tie this evening.
