Chelsea's Rudiger set to undergo surgery on knee injury

Chelsea fear Antonio Rudiger could miss rest of season as defender undegoes surgery in Rome

Chelsea fear Antonio Rudiger could miss rest of season as defender undegoes surgery in Rome

Chelsea now have just two fit centre-backs, although full-back Cesar Azpilicueta can cover there. "He will miss the rest of this campaign and will rehab over the summer to be back early next season", Chelsea said on their website.

Andreas Christensen is now set to partner David Luiz at the back as Chelsea look to hold on to their top four place or win the Europa League title.

Rudiger underwent surgery on his meniscus this week after limping out of Chelsea's 1-1 draw with Manchester United on Sunday, and Sarri confirmed that he expects the Germany global to be sidelined for at least three months. We've played 58 matches this season and, in the past, we've been lucky with injuries. "We were lucky previously but not in the last 10 days".

Huetter has plenty of ammunition at his disposal thanks to the "Balkan trio" led by Serbia's Luka Jovic, who has scored 25 goals in a breakthrough season at Frankfurt. I hope he will be very fresh, mentally and physically. I am really confident with Andreas because he is ready. The problem is only the numbers.

"Of course, the Europa League is important".

"At the moment, we need to get the top four in the Premier League because we want to play the next Champions League", he said. But we need to think about the Premier League.

Govt asks Rahul Gandhi to clarify nationality after Subramanian Swamy raises matter
Meanwhile, Home Minister Rajnath Singh played down the Centre's notice to Gandhi saying that it was part of a "normal process". Priyanka also said that the controversy over Rahul Gandhi's citizenship was "rubbish and drama".

Victories in the last two league games, against Watford and Leicester, would nearly certainly secure a return to Europe's elite club competition after a season's absence.

Adi Huetter continued to downplay his side's chances despite a phenomenal season that sees them fourth in the Bundesliga and eyeing the final in Baku after dumping out Marseille, Inter Milan, Shakhtar Donetsk and Portuguese league leaders Benfica.

"We tried to arrive at the end of the season, but the injury was there", Sarri said of Rudiger.

"They are very unsafe at home and away". They play with the same characteristics as Slavia Prague, but the quality is different, especially in the offensive players.

"They got beat at home to Crystal Palace but what is Unai Emery's best scenario? So, for us, it will be really very hard to get to the final, I think".
