Hakim Ziyech, a summer signing from Ajax, is yet to turn out in a Blues shirt due to a knee injury while Christian Pulisic is yet to make his comeback from a hamstring injury suffered in the FA Cup final defeat to Arsenal.
Pulisic has hinted he and Ziyech are nearly ready to return to the team in the near future.
Pulisic, who has been excellent since his move from Borussia Dortmund, posted a picture of himself with his arm around Ziyech after training with a sand-timer emoji and the words ‘soon come’.
Chelsea boss Frank Lampard confirmed on Tuesday that both are on their way back.
“Ben Chilwell is in the squad tomorrow. Christian and Ziyech are getting closer as well,” he said in his pre-match press conference ahead of Wednesday’s Carabao Cup clash with Barnsley.
