Sports Mole rounds up Chelsea’s latest injury and suspension news ahead of the first leg of their Europa League semi-final with Eintracht Frankfurt.

Chelsea make the trip to Germany to face Eintracht Frankfurt in the first leg of the Europa League semi-finals on the back of a credible 1-1 draw at Manchester United.

Both the Blues and United produced improved performances in Sunday’s Premier League fixture at Old Trafford, but Chelsea had opportunities to gain all three points in the North-West.

The result has left Chelsea in the top four of the standings, but Maurizio Sarri will still place high priority on qualifying for next season’s Champions League by winning this competition.

Here, Sports Mole rounds up the latest injury and suspension news for the West Londoners ahead of the meeting with the Bundesliga outfit on Thursday night.
