Graham Potter confirms injury blow for Chelsea defender

Kalidou Koulibaly news

Koulibaly out of Brighton game

Chelsea manager Graham Potter has confirmed that Kalidou Koulibaly won't be available to face Brighton & Hove Albion tomorrow.

The Senegal international has missed the last two games with a knee injury and Potter has confirmed that he is not fully fit to make a comeback.

Speaking in today's presser, Potter said that Koulibaly won't feature tomorrow, but could be available for the final Champions League game.

Aside from the centre-back, the Blues will be without Reece James, Wesley Fofana and N'Golo Kante, who are long-term injury absentees.

Chelsea are currently just outside of the Champions League positions on goal difference and they will be eyeing a victory tomorrow.

On paper, they are favourites to beat Brighton, but the South Coast can be a tricky opposition, considering their attacking style of play.

The Seagulls have already picked up points against Manchester United and Liverpool this term, and could spring another surprise.

Chelsea will need to be wary of the attacking threat.
