Full Chelsea squad confirmed for Luton clash as key player returns

Chelsea are back in action this afternoon when they take on Championship outfit Luton Town at midday in the FA Cup fourth round.

Frank Lampard is in desperate need of a win with heavy pressure mounting upon his shoulders with Chelsea managing just two wins from their last eight Premier League games.

Equally, the Blues stars are in desperate need of some confidence with criticism of their performances rife, particularly for summer arrivals like Timo Werner and Kai Havertz.

A home FA Cup clash with the Hatters could be the perfect opportunity for Chelsea to get back to winning ways but they won’t benefit from the return of midfielder N’Golo Kante ahead of the game.

Lampard has confirmed that Kante will not feature on Sunday, saying: “N’Golo, on the other hand, is not fit and won’t be available.

“He’s working outside on his own with the physios at the moment and we hope to have him back as soon as possible.
