Olivier Giroud looks set to miss another game as the Chelsea attacker struggles to overcome an unspecified leg injury.
Speaking ahead of the Carabao Cup tie against Derby County on Wednesday, assistant manager Gianfranco Zola confirmed that Giroud had a "little fatigue problem" in one of his legs. The Frenchman missed the fourth-round tie and Maurizio Sarri doesn’t expect a return this weekend either. "No, I think he will be out in this match, but the injury is not so serious," he said. "I think he will be able to play in the next match in Belarus [against BATE Borisov on Thursday night]." However, there was better news regarding Eden Hazard who will return to the matchday squad after taking part in training on Thursday. "He may not be ready for 90 minutes yet. It was the first part of training for a few weeks [but] he might be able to play for 40-45 minutes." Nov 3 - 12:46 PM
