Chelsea team news: Injury, suspension list vs. Fulham

Sports Mole rounds up all of Chelsea's latest injury and suspension news ahead of Saturday's Premier League meeting with Fulham.

Chelsea switch focus back to the Premier League on Saturday evening with a London derby showdown with Championship-bound Fulham.

The Blues claimed a 1-1 away-goal draw with Real Madrid in Tuesday's Champions League semi-final first leg to make it just two defeats in their last 23 games.

That includes a run of two wins and a draw in their last three top-flight outings, which has Thomas Tuchel's men in possession of fourth place.

Here, Sports Mole rounds up all of Chelsea's latest injury and suspension news ahead of Fulham's visit to Stamford Bridge.
