Chelsea have provided an injury update on seven players ahead of Saturday’s Premier League match against Brentford at Stamford Bridge.

The Blues are looking to go five games unbeaten after recovering from a slow start to the season as they take on their west London rivals.

Ahead of the fixture, Chelsea have confirmed that striker Armando Broja is ‘being treated for irritation on the knee’.

Chelsea have also stated that Carney Chukwuemeka and Trevoh Chalobah are continuing to undergo their respective rehabilitation programmes.

Chukwuemeka made an impressive start to the season before succumbing to a knee injury against West Ham and has not featured since.

Chalobah, meanwhile, hasn’t played at all this season and is still recovering from a thigh injury.

Last week, Chelsea revealed that Chukwuemeka and Chalobah had suffered setbacks in their recovery from injuries.

Like Chukwuemeka and Chalobah, there are four other Chelsea players who are continuing to undergo rehabilitation programmes.

That includes defenders Ben Chilwell and Wesley Fofana as well as midfielder Romeo Lavia and versatile attacker Christopher Nkunku.

Chelsea are 10th in the Premier League after their opening nine games of the season as they look to return to the top four following a dismal 12th-placed finish last term.
