David Luiz could be sidelined for a further month as he struggles to shake off persistent knee and ankle problems.
The Brazilian last appeared for the Blues at Vicarage Road in February - his first game back after missing the two previous matches due to ankle ligament damage - but he suffered a recurrence which has kept him on the sidelines since. The club have remained very coy on the defender's fitness, however, reports on Tuesday suggest that the 30-year-old is set to miss the next four games. In addition, Luiz is still managing a knee complaint - sustained over a year ago following a reckless Sergio Aguero challenge – and he regularly visits renowned orthopaedic surgeon Dr Ramon Cugat in Barcelona for treatment. In his absence - Andreas Christensen and Antonio Rudiger have been paired alongside Cesar Azpilicueta with England international Gary Cahill slipping down the pecking order. Elsewhere, midfielder N’Golo Kante is expected to return to face Crystal Palace on Saturday having missed the 1-0 defeat to Man City after fainting in training on Friday. Mar 6 - 4:35 PM
