Premier League fixtures are getting faster and faster with Chelsea hosting Brighton this week.
The Blues returned to winning ways on Boxing Day with a 3–1 win at Aston Villa, while Brighton beat Brentford 2–0.
Although Chelsea have suffered a major setback, Ben Chilwell will miss the rest of the season following knee surgery.
The England international sustained a partial ACL tear after colliding with Adrian Rabiot in a 4-0 Champions League group win over Juventus.
Boss Thomas Tuchel had previously said the club would treat the injury in a ‘conservative’ manner.
He added: “The decision is to treat it conservatively.
“The next six weeks will tell the story of whether he makes it and will be fully available within this six weeks, or will require surgery at or after six weeks.
“I only care about six weeks now. His body’s first reaction is very positive. Hopefully, it stays like that.”
“It is a decision after all the exams and it is a very responsible decision, there is no rush and no pressure.
