We can provide you with an injury update ahead of our clash with Southampton on Saturday afternoon thanks to Physio Room.
The Blues need a result against the Saints in order to keep the pressure off themselves from the chasing pack. The goal for Antonio Conte’s men is now very much to qualify for the Champions League, and they will be looking to take one step closer to doing so tomorrow afternoon.
The Spaniard was forced to sit out of the Blues’ victory over Huddersfield Town midweek, but it looks as though he’ll be back in contention for Saturday’s game.
Physio Room believe that he is carrying a back injury, but is expected to be available for the game, which is great news from a Chelsea fan’s perspective.
Physio Room report that David Luiz will not be available for selection against Southampton. It seems unlikely that he would have featured anyway when you consider the electric form of academy product Andreas Christensen.
