Chelsea team news: Injury, suspension list vs. West Ham United

Sports Mole rounds up Chelsea's latest injury and suspension news ahead of Wednesday's Premier League clash with West Ham United at the London Stadium.

Chelsea will look to keep their winning run going when they make the trip across London to take on West Ham United on Wednesday night.

Frank Lampard, who joined Chelsea from West Ham in his playing days, has overseen a five-match winning streak across all competitions either side of lockdown, including three from three since play resumed.

The most recent of those was a 1-0 triumph over Leicester City to book their place in the FA Cup semi-finals, but now they will switch their focus back to claiming a top-four spot.

Here, Sports Mole rounds up all of the latest injury and suspension news for the Blues.

Status: Minor doubt
Type of injury: Ankle
Possible return date: July 1 (vs. West Ham)

Callum Hudson-Odoi has not featured since the restart as he continues to struggle with an ankle injury, but he could be in line to return in some capacity at the London Stadium.



Christian Pulisic

Status: Minor doubt
Type of injury: Calf
Possible return date: July 1 (vs. West Ham)

Christian Pulisic has been Chelsea's brightest player since the restart, but he was forced off in the FA Cup due to feeling tightness in his calf. Lampard is optimistic that the problem will not cause him to miss any games, though.



Andreas Christensen

Status: Major doubt
Type of injury: Hip
Possible return date: July 1 (vs. West Ham)

Andreas Christensen missed out on Sunday due to a hip injury and, while Lampard did not divulge how serious the problem is, the quick turnaround in games makes him a major doubt for this one.



Fikayo Tomori

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

Lampard revealed last Thursday that Fikayo Tomori is around a week away from returning to training after a muscle injury, making him an outside candidate to feature in this London derby.

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

Marco van Ginkel has been injured for almost two years now and you have to go back to 2013 for his last Chelsea appearance, but he recently signed a new one-year deal with the club. The Dutchman may not feature too much in the coming weeks, but could be used towards the end of the season ahead of a bigger role in 2020-21.
