Chelsea Team News: Two Attackers To Miss Bayern Munich Clash

Chelsea manager, Frank Lampard will most likely be without two of his key attackers for Tuesday night’s Champions League clash with Bayern Munich.

Christian Pulisic and Callum Hudson-Odoi will not feature at Stamford Bridge due to injury, according to Football London.

N’Golo Kante is also ruled out, as Lampard confirmed that the French midfielder would miss the next three weeks prior to their victory over Tottenham.

Chelsea were also without winger Pedro at the weekend, but Lampard has confirmed that he is back in contention during this pre-match press conference.

Tammy Abraham could lead the line for the Blues against Munich though, as the striker came in as a sub on Saturday after completing his recovery from injury.

Ruben Loftus-Cheek is included in the squad and will bolster their midfield following the disappointing loss of holding-midfielder Kante.

While Blues’s top scorer Abraham wasn’t fit enough to start on Saturday, Olivier Giroud produced a performance that could see him retain his place for the visit of Munich.
