Ziyech, Giroud, Haverz: Chelsea injury updates and team news ahead of Krasnodar clashChelsea are back in action on Tuesday evening when they welcome Krasnodar to Stamford Bridge in the Uefa Champions League.

The Blues are in superb form right now, winning eight of their past nine fixtures, with their latest win was Saturday’s 3-1 victory over Leeds United.

The west London club came from behind to see off the visitor with 3-1 and will be hoping for a similar performance against the Russian side on Tuesday night.
