Chelsea were without goalkeeper Robert Sanchez for the weekend game against Burnley.

The Blues were also without defenders Trevoh Chalobah and Ben Chilwell for the 2-2 draw with Burnley on Saturday. Malo Gusto also limped off for the Blues with an issue late in the game against Burnley.

Speaking ahead of playing Manchester United on Thursday night, Blues boss Mauricio Pochettino has revealed that Ben Chilwell won’t be available for the game, while the trio of Trevoh Chalobah, Malo Gusto and Robert Sanchez are likely to feature.

“Trevoh and Malo were training with us and I think they will be ready to be involved with us in the squad,” said Pochettino.

“We haven’t seen Chilly since Friday. That is the last time we saw him because the doctor and the medical staff removed from his knee a lot of fluid.

“That was the situation after he arrived from the national team and then on Saturday he got ill and wasn’t here on Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and today. He is at home trying to recover.

“Robert is training, we will see if he can be on the squad list or not.”
