Chelsea team news: Injury, suspension list vs. Leicester City

Sports Mole rounds up Chelsea's latest injury and suspension news ahead of Sunday's FA Cup quarter-final against Leicester City.

Chelsea switch their focus from the Premier League to the FA Cup on Sunday when they face fellow top-four dwellers Leicester City in the quarter-finals at the King Power Stadium.

Just one point separates the two sides in the Premier League table as Frank Lampard's side look to overhaul the Foxes following their 2-1 triumph over Manchester City on Thursday night.

That result handed Liverpool the Premier League title, and the Blues could take a step towards silverware of their own if they reach the semi-finals on Sunday.

Here, Sports Mole rounds up Chelsea's latest injury and suspension news ahead of the contest.

Status: Major doubt
Type of injury: Ankle
Possible return date: June 28 (vs. Leicester)

Callum Hudson-Odoi was once again absent for the match against Man City as he continues to struggle with an ankle injury and, while a cup match would ordinarily be a good chance for him to get minutes, this quarter-final may come just too soon for him.

Fikayo Tomori

Status: Out
Type of injury: Muscle
Possible return date: July 1 (vs. West Ham United)

Fikayo Tomori is not too far away from recovering from the muscle injury which has kept him out since the restart so far, but he will not be available for Sunday's contest.

Status: Out
Type of injury: Knee
Possible return date: Unknown

Marco van Ginkel last played for Chelsea in 2013 but clearly remains in their plans having signed a one-year extension to his contract at Stamford Bridge this week. The 27-year-old has not played a competitive match of any kind for almost two years now due to a hellish spell out through injury.


Chelsea have no players suspended for this cup tie.
