Chelsea team news: Injury, suspension list vs. AC Milan

Sports Mole rounds up Chelsea's injury and suspension news ahead of their Champions League clash with AC Milan.

Chelsea will be looking to win successive games for the first time this season when they play host to AC Milan in a mouth-watering Champions League matchup on Tuesday.

The Blues secured their first victory of the Graham Potter era on Saturday when they edged out London rivals Crystal Palace 2-1 at Selhurst Park.

They now turn their attention to the Champions League, where they are currently rooted to the bottom of Group E after picking up just one point from their opening two games.

Here, Sports Mole rounds up Chelsea's latest injury and suspension news ahead of their clash with AC Milan, who are unbeaten in nine of their 10 games this season.


N'Golo Kante

Status: Major doubt
Type of injury: Thigh
Possible return date: October 8 (vs. Wolverhampton Wanderers)

N'Golo Kante was hauled off injured late in Chelsea's 2-2 draw with Tottenham on August 14, and while the Frenchman was pictured in training recently, he is unlikely to return to action on Tuesday.


Edouard Mendy

Status: Minor doubt
Type of injury: Knee
Possible return date: October 8 (vs. Wolverhampton Wanderers)

Edouard Mendy was withdrawn from international duty with Senegal back in September due to a knee problem and the 30-year-old goalkeeper's participation on Tuesday is a doubt despite recently returning to team training.


Jorginho

Status: Minor doubt
Type of injury: Knock
Possible return date: Unknown

Jorginho was forced off injured 11 minutes into the second half against Crystal Palace on Saturday and while the severity of his injury is currently being assessed, the Italian midfielder, who has started six of Chelsea's nine games this season, is unlikely to feature against the Rossoneri.


Marc Cucurella

Status: Minor doubt
Type of injury: Illness
Possible return date: October 5 (vs. AC Milan)

Marc Cucurella was absent from the trip to Crystal Palace on Saturday after falling ill during the international break, but the former Brighton and Hove Albion defender is in line to return in midweek.


Carney Chukwuemeka

Status: Minor doubt
Type of injury: Illness
Possible return date: October 5 (vs. AC Milan)

Carney Chukwuemeka also missed the game against Patrick Vieira's side due to illness, and while the English youngster is yet to make an appearance for the Blues since his summer move from Aston Villa, he should be fit enough to make the matchday squad on Tuesday.


CHELSEA'S SUSPENSION LIST

Chelsea have no players suspended for this match.
