Chelsea make a quick return to Premier League action on Wednesday evening when they square off against Watford, who are managed by former boss Claudio Ranieri.

The Blues will head into the fixture sitting at the top of the standings, their advantage reduced to one point on Sunday after a 1-1 draw with Manchester United.

With two more games, both away from Stamford Bridge, coming in quick succession, head coach Thomas Tuchel will want to see as few people in the treatment room as possible.

Here, Sports Mole rounds up all of Chelsea’s latest injury and suspension news ahead of the short trip to Vicarage Road.

Mateo Kovacic

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

Kovacic suffered a hamstring problem in a training session last month, and a date for the Croatia international’s return to action has not yet been set.

N’Golo Kante

Status: Out
Type of injury: Knee
Possible return date: December 4 (vs. West Ham United)

Ahead of the Man United game, Tuchel said that it would take a ‘miracle’ for Kante to return for that fixture. With just a three-day turnaround, the Blues head coach is unlikely to take any risks on the Frenchman, who twisted his knee last week.

Ben Chilwell
