Ahead of Chelsea’s Champions League game against Ajax on Wednesday, Chelsea boss Frank Lampard has confirmed the Blues will be without Ross Barkley, N’Golo Kante, Antonio Rudiger, Andreas Christensen and Ruben Loftus-Cheek.
“They’re obviously all not here,” Lampard said.
“Ross will hopefully be fit to train by the time we get back on Thursday, Rudiger has trained with us today which is part of a small programme to have him fit, he’s going to be out of contention for the weekend but hopefully soon.
“N’Golo similarly, he’s training but we’ll see how he is for the weekend. Not clear yet on that one.”
