Chelsea will be without three players for Saturday’s Premier League game against Sheffield United but a Chelsea midfielder will make a return from injury.

According to Chelsea boss Frank Lampard, Billy Gilmour, N’Golo Kante and Fikayo Tomori are unavailable for the game against Sheffield United while Mateo Kovacic is available for selection.

“Billy Gilmour has had an operation on his knee this morning,” Lampard said.

“Unfortunately we estimate he will be out for somewhere between three and four months.”

Lampard added: “Kante is not fit, Kovacic is back in the squad so he is fit. Fikayo Tomori is bordering on fit but he is not in this squad.”
