Today’s the day! Chelsea will go head-to-head with Atletico Madrid at Stamford Bridge tonight knowing that victory will mean they progress to the knockout stages of the Champions League as group winners.

However, as reported by Physio Room, Antonio Conte has a triple injury headaches to contest with as he prepares for the big game.

Chelsea manager Antonio Conte has three injury issues ahead of his side’s clash with Atletico Madrid.

With games coming thick and fast, and the hectic Christmas period now within touching distance, you would think it likely that Conte would be keen on shuffling the pack. He may not, though, be able to do so today.

As per Physio Room, David Luiz is not available for the clash with Atletico as he continues to recover from a knee injury. Andreas Christensen will presumably keep his spot in the starting side.

Physio Room report that Charly Musonda has also been ruled out, though it seems unlikely that the Belgian would have featured anyway.

Physio Room consider Kenedy a ‘slight doubt’ for the contest, but once more, Conte likely would not risk him in a game of this magnitude.
