Shane Duffy could potentially return after suffering with illness recently.

However, Neeskens Kebano is ruled out of the clash due to a ruptured Achilles suffered in training in November.

Chelsea go into the game during an incredible injury crisis, with up to 11 players missing.

Edouard Mendy is a doubt, having had surgery on a finger injury, while he will be joined on the sidelines by Reece James, Wesley Fofana, Ben Chilwell and N’Golo Kante – who are all long-term absentees.

Christian Pulisic and Raheem Sterling are also doubts after being taken off against Man City in the league previously.

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang was absent from their FA Cup clash at the Etihad and remains a doubt, struggling with a back issue.

New signings Benoit Badiashile and David Datro Fofana are available, with the former making his debut in the FA Cup.

The Blues will also be hoping to complete the signing of Joao Felix in the next days but he is extremely unlikely to face Fulham.
