Chelsea manager Antonio Conte is currently facing an injury crisis as four of his players are a doubt for the Champions League clash against Barcelona on Tuesday.
Conte’s men are up against former Champions League winners on Tuesday at the Stamford Bridge stadium and the Italian manager must have a complete squad if he must stand a chance of pulling any surprise against the Blaugrana but that isn’t the case as the manager is currently sweating on the fitness of his key players ahead of the match.
David Luiz, Bakayoko and Ross Barkley are set to miss out on the action at the West London club as they are out due to injuries.
Bakayoko hasn’t been too impressive for the West London club since he joined them from Monaco since the start of the season. He has endured a difficult start to his Chelsea career and he will hope to change that when he returns back from his injury lay-off.
According to Conte in his pre-match conference ahead of his team’s FA Cup fixture against Hull City on Friday which ended 4-0, Bakayoko won’t be available for selection when they tackle Barcelona.
The good news that interest Chelsea faithfuls is that Spain international left-back Marcos Alonso is back from his injury spell and he could feature against the La Liga giants.
The Blues undisputed left-back has been in fine form since the beginning of the season and he will be hoping to stop Barca from finding the back of the net.
