Chelsea team news: Injury, suspension list vs. Brighton & Hove Albion

Sports Mole rounds up all of Chelsea's latest injury and suspension news ahead of Tuesday's Premier League fixture with Brighton & Hove Albion.

Chelsea return to action on Tuesday evening with an important Premier League fixture against Brighton & Hove Albion.

The Blues have spent the past week competing in the Champions League and FA Cup, progressing past Porto and Manchester City respectively.

However, with just a three-day turnaround after the recent triumph at Wembley Stadium, Thomas Tuchel has a number of dilemmas regarding his team selection.

Here, Sports Mole rounds up all of Chelsea's latest injury and suspension news ahead of welcoming Graham Potter's side to Stamford Bridge.

Status: Minor doubt
Type of injury: Hamstring
Possible return date: April 20 (vs. Brighton)

Christensen has been nursing a hamstring injury throughout this month, an issue which kept him out of Saturday's FA Cup tie. However, Tuchel has revealed that he expects the Dane to feature on Tuesday.


Mateo Kovacic

Status: Out
Type of injury: Muscular
Possible return date: April 24 (vs. West Ham United)

When Kovacic sustained a muscular injury last week, Tuchel was quick to rule the Croatian out of two matches. The Blues boss has since revealed that the midfielder will play no part against the Seagulls.


Thiago Silva

Status: Major doubt
Type of injury: Back
Possible return date: April 20 (vs. Brighton)

Despite almost completing the 90 minutes at Wembley, Silva frequently complained about a back problem. Tuchel has suggested that the veteran's workload is the main issue, which is likely to lead to the Brazilian not featuring at Stamford Bridge.


CHELSEA'S SUSPENSION LIST

Chelsea have no suspension issues ahead of the game in West London.
