Chelsea will be without six key players, Tammy Abraham, N’Golo Kante, Christian Pulisic, Andreas Christensen, Callum Hudson-Odoi, and Ruben Loftus-Cheek when they take on Liverpool in the FA Cup fifth-round clash on Tuesday night at Stamford Bridge.

Chelsea manager, Frank Lampard, made this known during his pre-match press conference on Monday.

According to Lampard, the six players were yet to recover fully from injuries.

Chelsea played a 2-2 draw with Bournemouth on Saturday in the Premier League in their last encounter.

“Andreas Christensen has a small issue, probably puts him out for tomorrow,” Lampard was quoted by Chelsea’s official website as saying.

“No returns. Ruben Loftus-Cheek is playing in the U23s tonight.“No Tammy Abraham, N’Golo Kante, Callum Hudson-Odoi and Christian Pulisic.”

Lampard added:

“We have to play with a great spirit.“We would expect them to put out a strong team.

“They have done well in the last year, and their defeat to Watford won’t make it any easier.
