Chelsea face fresh injury concern ahead of Hull City clash

Tammy Abraham news

Abraham out of Hull City clash?

Chelsea could be without the services of Tammy Abraham for the FA Cup fourth round clash against Hull City on the road.

The England international picked up an ankle injury in the 2-2 Premier League draw against Arsenal and the Blues are yet to know the extent of the problem.

According to Football.London, the striker is likely to miss out on the matchday squad to face Hull City in the FA Cup fourth round tie at the KCOM Stadium on Saturday evening.

Aside from Abraham, Christian Pulisic and Ruben Loftus-Cheek are among the other absentees for the club but the latter is close to making a comeback after a long-term Achilles problem.

The Blues have struggled to secure back-to-back wins in the Premier League since the last international break but they are still six points ahead of Manchester United in the race for the final Champions League spot.

Lampard's side have benefited from the inconsistent form from the teams below them in the standings but can't afford to maintain the current run of results for an extended period of time.
