These five Chelsea stars will miss Chelsea vs Brentford clash

Chelsea will be with five players for Wednesday’s Premier League clash against Brentford at Stamford Bridge.

Reece James and Mason Mount are out for the season while Kai Havertz will miss the west London derby at Stamford Bridge on Wednesday.

They join Kalidou Koulibaly and Armando Broja in the treatment room but interim boss Frank Lampard will still have around 27 players to choose from.

“Reece James is unavailable for this game and probably for the rest of the season as well,” Lampard said. “Reece had a hamstring injury that he picked up in the Madrid game, got through the game, but we scanned it in the following days and he’ll be out.

“Kai is still struggling a bit with his knee so he hasn’t been training with us, which is obviously disappointing for us, but he should be back training at the start of the week.”

“Mason is the same as Reece unfortunately, although he possibly might be back in time for our last game of the season, but that’s not certain,” added Lampard.

“Mason has been carrying this pelvic injury for a quite a while, it definitely predates myself by a while.

“He’s been trying, typically, and the medical staff have been trying, but we’ve got to the stage now where he will have minor surgery and that will be probably a four-week recovery, and we all know where that gets us to.”
