Chelsea welcome Nottingham Forest to Stamford Bridge on Sunday for a FA Cup third round match.
Ahead of the game on Sunday, Chelsea assistant manager Jody Morris provided an injury update.
“Injury-wise, Alonso is looking like he’ll definitely be out and Ruben [Loftus-Cheek] is the obvious one,” Morris said.
“Apart from that, we’re still looking at a few players in the fallout from the Brighton game.
“Fikayo [Tomori] trained today but he’s still not feeling the best himself – there’s been a bit of that about because of the time of year.
“Olivier [Giroud] is alright so we’ll look and see how the lads are feeling. We’ll try to utilise the squad so I’m sure there’ll be a few changes from the Brighton game but we’re not sure how many yet. We will look at how the lads are feeling because after those games, you have to utilise the squad.”
