The four games Chilwell could miss...

Ben Chilwell is set to be sidelined for a number of weeks after sustaining a hamstring injury ahead of Chelsea's Premier League clash against Fulham. The England international has become the latest player to join the Blues' treatment room leaving Mauricio Pochettino even shorter of options heading into the next fixture.

Speaking ahead of the Fulham clash, Pochettino said: "It was bad that it was in the last minute of the game, and of course, we are really sad about the news around Ben [Chilwell]. Time, it's difficult to know now because it was less than two days since it happened.

"We need to assess him over the next few days, and for sure the club will communicate," the Chelsea boss added. So, with reports suggesting Chilwell could be sidelined for up to four weeks, has taken a look at the games the England international could miss.

It's clear that Chilwell will not be available to face Fulham on Monday. Marc Cucurella could be set to start in the 26-year-old's absence or Levi Colwill could continue on in the hybrid left-back and centre-back role.
