Ahead of Saturday’s Premier League clash against Leicester City, five Chelsea players could miss the game at the King Power stadium.

Chelsea striker Tammy Abraham is a major doubt for the game after picking up an injury in the 2-2 draw against Arsenal at Stamford Bridge.

Chelsea boss Frank Lampard admitted the striker has been training with pain but refused to rule him out of the game against Leicester.

“He has trained today and felt okay,” Lampard said in his pre-match press conference on Friday.

“We need to see if there is a reaction because it is a pain injury.

“There is a lot of pain and even in training he has pain. So I am going to look at that one overnight and test him in the morning.

“He did get out there today which is a positive in the longer term.”

Christian Pulisic is back in training but is also a doubt for the game against Leicester as he isn’t fully fit. Chelsea right-back Reece James also faces a race to prove his fitness for the game against Leicester City and is still a minor doubt but could return at right-back.

Chelsea midfielder Ruben Loftus-Cheek has recently returned to training but he will miss the game against Leicester City as he isn’t fully fit just yet while Marco van Ginkel remains a long-term absentee.
