Chelsea will be without Tiemoue Bakayoko, David Luiz and Ross Barkley for the FA Cup 5th round clash vs Hull City, according to Antonio Conte. The trio has been ruled out injured by the manager but he has not mentioned how long they will be out.
Adding to that, Conte also said that he has a couple of ‘situations’ that need to be taken care of.
“Bakayoko is out, Luiz is out and Barkley is out. Then I have a couple of situations that I have to check”
While it’s not clear what the other situations are, rumours suggest that it could be the fitness of Christensen and Morata.
Gary Cahill is expected to lead the team on Friday night with Cesar Azpilicueta getting a much-needed rest. Rudiger and Ampadu are tipped to start the game.
