Chelsea host AFC Bournemouth on Wednesday night with Antonio Conte’s men looking to reach the semi-finals of the Carabao Cup.

With the Premier League title all-but lost to high-flying Manchester City, and Barcelona waiting in the wings in the Champions League, this competition provides the most realistic chance for us to pick up a piece of silverware this season.

Chelsea’s Premier League title is very much Manchester City’s to lose.

It seems likely that Conte will shuffle his pack ahead of the congested Christmas period, and he will be able to do so freely as it looks as though he has just one player unavailable for the clash with the Cherries.

According to Physio Room, David Luiz is the only Chelsea player who will not be available for selection for the game. Physio Room believe that he is currently recovering from a knee injury, and as of yet no return date has been set for the Brazilian.

David Luiz
David Luiz hasn’t played for the Blues since the 4-0 away win against Qarabag.

Let’s hope Luiz gets back fit and firing as soon as possible, we’ll need him!
