Tammy Abraham has joined Christian Pulisic and N’Golo Kante on the treatment table at Chelsea, with Frank Lampard confirming that a niggling ankle complaint will rule the striker out of his immediate plans..”

The Blues are preparing for a Premier League clash with Bournemouth on Saturday and Abraham, who saw 29 minutes off the bench in a midweek 3-0 Champions League defeat to Bayern Munich, will play no part against the Cherries.

The England international, who has 15 goals to his name this season, has joined those stuck on the sidelines after aggravating a previous problem in a warm down at Stamford Bridge.

Lampard told reporters when offering a fitness update:

“Pulisic is injured. Kante injured, Abraham injured. We are trying to find a solution with Tammy. It’s the same.


“At the moment he is not doing anything active for a couple of days. But we don’t know the length.”
