Chelsea injury news and expected return dates: Latest on Loftus-Cheek, Pulisic and Abraham

Who is out and who is a doubt for Chelsea when they return to Premier League action after the winter break with massive back-to-back games against Manchester United and Tottenham at Stamford Bridge

The inaugural Premier League winter break has come at a great time for Chelsea and Frank Lampard.

Though the Blues are still in the driving seat in the race to secure fourth place and thus Champions League football this season, results will need to improve for them to stay there.

Popular Chelsea Live News

Last weekend's 2-2 draw against third-place Leicester City made it three league games without a win and also allowed Tottenham Hotspur - who beat Manchester City at home - to cut the gap down to just four points.

Meanwhile, Sheffield United are a point further behind and Manchester United remain withing touching distance despite a lack of form similar to the Blues'.

Frank Lampard now has just over a week to form plans for consecutive matches against United and Spurs that could prove decisive in the race for Champions League football next season - and he will be hoping to have a couple of key players back.

So here's the latest Chelsea injury news and expected return dates.

Ruben Loftus-Cheek is close to making his return to action.

Images emerged of the midfielder taking part in training with the first-team squad ahead of the FA Cup fourth round tie against Hull.

Posting on their Twitter account, the Blues shared a picture of the England international taking part in the session.

While Chelsea are unlikely to rush the player back after so long on the sidelines, he has taken part in his first match - a behind-closed-doors friendly for the Chelsea Under-23s against Brentford B.

A return straight after the winter break is unlikely, but his comeback will be welcomed with games starting to come thick and fast.

Christian Pulisic missed Chelsea's routine 2-0 win against Nottingham Forest in the FA Cup third round because of an unspecified injury sustained in training, and has since missed every game.

Frank Lampard confirmed the issue to the club's in-house TV channel but did not specify what the injury was or the severity.

Lampard has since given a further update on the USA international, who could return following the winter break.

"We tried to get him out there last week, step it up a little bit, but we had to pull out of that. The break might have come at a good time, it buys us a couple of weeks.

"Of course you miss him. He's a quality player and he was having a really good patch pre-Christmas.

"Others have to stand up too, but of course we'll be happy when he's back."

The striker was again left out of the squad entirely for the trip to Leicester after missing the FA Cup clash against Hull City.

Lampard revealed that the striker had a 'tiny, tiny' problem, but did train ahead of the Hull game.

The Frenchman had been heavily linked with a move away from Stamford Bridge during the January transfer window, but now should be available for Chelsea after the winter break should he be selected by Lampard.

The midfielder is a long term absentee, as he continues his rehabilitation following an anterior cruciate ligament injury.

The Dutchman is on the way to recovery, having confirmed on social media that he has now returned to training.

"After more than a year, finally back on the pitch," he wrote."For most players it is normal to be training outside, but I had some setbacks during my recovery which was really frustrating.

"I am working hard everyday, not there yet but it is getting closer now."

Meanwhile, Tammy Abraham, Pedro and Jorginho were substituted during the Leicester game, but those changes appear to have been for tactical reasons rather than injury related, as was the decision to start Willy Caballero ahead of Kepa Arrizabalaga in goal.

N'Golo Kante played the full 90 minutes back at his former club after being left out of the squad for the FA Cup match.
