Chelsea injury list for Leeds United trip as Thomas Tuchel unsure on midfield duo

By Danny Bloomer

Leeds United face another huge match in their battle to beat the drop as they host Chelsea at Elland Road. The Whites will be looking to move out of the bottom three after falling into it for the first time since October at the weekend due to their 2-1 defeat at Arsenal.

If Leeds are able to avoid defeat, they would move back ahead of Burnley and even a point could prove to be pivotal at the end of the season. But opponents Chelsea have plenty to play for, too, as their recent run of one win in five matches means that a top four place is not yet secure.

A win at Elland Road would all but mathematically confirm it, however a defeat could open the door for Tottenham Hotspur tomorrow. So ahead of a huge game this evening, here is a look at Chelsea’s injury news.

N’Golo Kante

N’Golo Kante has missed Chelsea’s last two matches after picking up an injury in their draw at Manchester United late last month. Kante was close to returning for Wolves on Saturday but Tuchel is still unsure whether he will be fit for Elland Road.

What Thomas Tuchel said (10.05): “We're fighting for Jorgi and N'Golo tomorrow but I don't know if they'll make it.”

Jorginho

Jorginho also missed the draw with Wolves on Saturday after being withdrawn at half time of the defeat at Everton six days earlier. Like Kante, Tuchel doesn’t know if he will be able to call on his Italian international midfielder.

What Thomas Tuchel said (10.05): “We're fighting for Jorgi and N'Golo tomorrow but I don't know if they'll make it.”

Callum Hudson-Odoi

Winger Callum Hudson-Odoi has been injured for a number of weeks, with Chelsea taking his recovery carefully. Tuchel has not confirmed when he is set to return, meaning it is unlikely he will be in the squad against Leeds.

What Thomas Tuchel said (April 19): “With Callum, we take things day by day, week by week but it is not possible for him to join in with team training just yet. We will not rush him either.”

Ben Chilwell

Wing back Ben Chilwell has been absent for over six months now as he continues his recovery from an ACL injury. The England international is out for the season.

What Thomas Tuchel said (April 19): “Ben will still be able to join in team training with the youth, this will be his next step in the weeks, and hopefully he can join our training at the end of the season.”
