Chelsea team news: Injury, suspension list vs. Dynamo Kiev

Sports Mole rounds up the latest Chelsea injury and suspension news ahead of Thursday's Europa League last-16 second leg against Dynamo Kiev.

Chelsea will be looking to complete the job and seal their place in the quarter-finals of the Europa League when they take on Dynamo Kiev in Ukraine on Thursday evening.

The Blues already have one foot in the next round courtesy of their 3-0 victory in the first leg last week, but they face a team that has scored 10 goals without reply in their three home games since returning from a winter break.

Chelsea also go into the match having seen a top-four spot taken out of their hands at the weekend courtesy of a 1-1 draw with Wolverhampton Wanderers.

Here, Sports Mole rounds up the latest injury and suspension news for Maurizio Sarri's side.

Possible return date: Unknown

Chelsea's top-four hopes may not have made it through the weekend unscathed, but Sarri's players did and long-term absentee Marco van Ginkel remains the only player ruled out completely.


Chelsea have no players suspended for this game.
