Chelsea manager in an interview confirmed that midfielder, N’golo Kante is expected to be out for about three weeks with an adductor injury and will not be available for the clash against Bayern munich today.
Christian Pulisic, Pedro and Callum Hudson-Odoi are also unlikely to feature, but Ruben Loftus-Cheek is available after returning to the bench against Tottenham on Saturday.
Bayern defender Niklas Sule (knee) and forward Ivan Perisic (ankle) are out.
Spanish midfielder Javi Martinez could return, however, after missing the previous six matches with a muscle tear.
Chelsea manager Frank Lampard says he has “no doubts” about his young squad going into the tie.
“I trust in all the players who have been part of the squad this year,” said Lampard. “They’ve earned trust in the way they’ve played.
“A big part of my job tomorrow is to explain to the players that over two legs we need to be at our maximum. We need every detail, every box ticked in both games.”
