Chelsea suffer heavy defensive injury setback

Chelsea defender Benoit Badiashile has been struck by a fresh injury setback.

The Frenchman is out for a month with a groin injury - and so misses the Carabao Cup final against Liverpool, says the London Evening Standard.

Badiashile was forced off late into last week's 3-1 FA Cup win at Aston Villa.

However, while Badiashile is out, Levi Colwill will be back tonight against Crystal Palace.

Colwill has missed four games due to a hamstring injury.
