Latest Chelsea injury news as eight miss Man United amid Felix boost

Frank Lampard will take charge of his final away game as Chelsea manager today, with a trip to Manchester United.

The Blues will be happy to see the backend of the 2022/23 season, with Thomas Tuchel, Graham Potter and Lampard all struggling for results. Chelsea will finish outside the Premier League top 10 for the first time since 1996.

Tonight's trip to Old Trafford could be the last chance for a number of players to impress the club hierarchy ahead of the summer. With Mauricio Pochettino expected to take over at Stamford Bridge in the summer, individuals will want to make an early impression.

Chelsea can overtake Crystal Palace in 11th in the table with victory over Man United. If they are to beat Erik ten Hag's men, they will have to so without Mason Mount, Reece James, Ben Chilwel and Benoit Badiashile through injury.

"We don't have players returning. Mason [Mount], Reece [James] and Chiily [Ben Chilwell] won't make the game," Lampard said on Wednesday. "Benoit [Badiashile] we know is out, we're as we were."

Badiashile is set to miss the rest of the season with a serious groin injury suffered in training last week, though he will be back in time for the start of the next campaign.

"It's a big blow for him and I am disappointed for him," Lampard said. "He has come here and impressed and the games just before he got injured I was very happy with him.

"He is going to be a good player for this club. "It is an unfortunate, complicated injury and it is months rather than weeks.

"I hope for him that the timing of it over the summer means that he won't miss games and he will come back stronger."

Joao Felix, though, is back after he missed the 1-0 defeat to Manchester City on Sunday. "Joao had a small injury at the weekend and he is back involved."

N'Golo Kante, Mateo Kovacic and Marc Cucurella are all also expected to miss out. Whilst Armando Broja will miss the last two games of the season.
