Latest Chelsea team news
Emerson and Ruben Loftus-Cheek remain out while there is no confirmed timeframe yet on Toni Rudiger's return. Frank Lampard had an update on N'Golo Kante's fitness during his press conference on Friday.
‘It’s something we’ll have to watch over the next 24, 48 hours to make sure he’s okay,' said Lampard. 'All the players are on a semi-recovery programme after the Lille game but it’s also the fact he hasn’t played much.
‘In terms of the injury, he’s fine and there was no fallout with that from the Lille game so it’s just about making sure he’s fit and ready, which is a call for me to make.’
Latest Southampton team news
Cedric pulled out of the Saints' loss to Tottenham after getting an injury in the warm-up and is out. Moussa Djenepo, the scorer of two fantastic goals earlier this season, has missed Southampton's last three games with a tendon injury and will miss this weekend's game. Che Adams is back in contention having not been involved at Spurs.
