Chelsea have suffered another injury blow with Benoit Badiashile ruled out of the Carabao Cup final against Liverpool later this month.
The defender was forced off with a groin injury in the FA Cup fourth round win against Aston Villa last week.

That will see the former Monaco star miss out on taking part in the Carabao Cup final at Wembley on February 25.
