Chelsea’s Squad Update Ahead of Brentford’s Game

Published

Chelsea once again has been hit with injury and covid cases ahead of their carabao cup match against Brentford.

The blues in recent weeks has had to play with a depleted squad and this will continue as star players are still absent from training.

Two more players tested positive to covid yesterday, thereby reducing the number of players available for the game. Chelsea in turn has turned to their U-23 team to fill up the void left by their star players.

Lukaku, Chilwell, Hudson, Harvertz, Lewis baker, and Timo Werner missed the training as they all are in isolation having returned negative tests to covid.

Kante and Chalobah trained with the rest of the team although Tuchel has hinted that none of them will be involved against Brentford tonight with the former being rested having played 90 minutes against Wolves on Sunday.

Jorginho was back in training after missing the game against Wolves on Sunday due to a fake covid result and will be available for tonight’s game against the Bees.

All other players were in training as Chelsea hopes to return to winning ways having dropped points in their last two outings.

Below are some pictures of those who trained.
