Gianfranco Zola rules three star Chelsea players out ahead of tomorrow's clash with Forest

Willian was the latest to join the injured list, when he came off in the first half of Wednesday’s hosting of Southampton. 

Assistant coach Zola, taking on media conference duties at Cobham on Friday afternoon, says he does not think the Brazilian’s injury is too serious but he will not be available tomorrow. 

In addition, Pedro nor Olivier Giroud will not be available for selection although there are hopes those two will be back for the first leg of our Carabao Cup semi-final against Tottenham next week.

‘The injuries will leave space for some of the young players,’ Zola reported. 

‘There are players who have played five or six games in a short period of time, so it will be necessary to do a little bit of rotation. 

Chelsea will take on Nottingham Forest on Saturday afternoon 15:00 GMT in FA Cup's third round tier. ALSO, you get to STREAM the match LIVE at our LIVESTREAM tab exclusive at this website.
