Chelsea team news: Injury, suspension list vs. Everton

Sports Mole rounds up Chelsea's latest injury and suspension news ahead of Sunday's Premier League clash with Everton.

Chelsea will be looking to return to winning ways in the Premier League when they welcome Everton to Stamford Bridge on Sunday afternoon.

The Blues were held to a 2-2 draw by Bournemouth in the league last weekend but did record a 2-0 victory over Liverpool in the fifth round of the FA Cup on Tuesday night.

As it stands, Frank Lampard's side are fourth in the Premier League table, three points clear of fifth-placed Manchester United on the same number of matches.

Here, Sports Mole rounds up Chelsea's latest injury and suspension news ahead of the clash with Carlo Ancelotti's side in the capital.


Tammy Abraham

Tammy Abraham is currently struggling to overcome an ankle issue, and the Englishman has recently been to Barcelona to see a specialist. The striker has also been struggling with illness, although he could potentially be available for Sunday's clash in the English capital.


N'Golo Kante
