Chelsea’s left-back, Ben Chilwell, has been ruled out of the Premier League match against Nottingham Forest due to injury, leaving a void in the squad.


As a result, Chelsea’s interim manager, Frank Lampard, has hinted at the possibility of promoting 18-year-old Lewis Hall to fill the gap for the remaining matches of the season.

Injury Concerns and Hall’s Opportunity:

Lampard revealed that Chilwell’s fitness remains a concern, and the left-back may only be available for the last couple of games of the season.

Mason Mount and Reece James are also dealing with similar injury issues, with James potentially being further behind in terms of recovery.
