🏥Injury Round Up: Chelsea, Liverpool suffer massive blows as key players ruled out for the rest of the season

The English Premier League enters the home stretch this weekend with a total of 10 matches on the card, and a lot at stake as teams scramble for Champions League slots while others fighting the impending relegation axe. 

Ahead of this weekend, we look at the injury status of clubs and the impact they will have on their squads. 

At Chelsea, promising youngster Billy Gilmour is set to miss the remainder of the season after suffering a knee injury.

However, the Blues have received an injury boost after Matteo Kovacic shook off an injury he recently picked to make himself available for Chelsea's trip to Sheffield United on Saturday. 

The Croat missed the Blues' last two matches; a 3-0 win over Watford and a 3-2 victory over Crystal Palace in midweek with an Achilles heel injury. [FULL STORY]

Premier League champions Liverpool meanwhile will be without their captain after Jordan Henderson was ruled out for the remaining four games of the season with a knee injury.

At Manchester City, coach Pep Guardiola has revealed Kevin De Bruyne should be available for selection for the upcoming matches, after an injury scare in his side's 5-0 victory over Newcastle United.

De Bruyne played the entire match and picked a knock with Guardiola admitting he was worried when the midfielder went down towards the end of the clash following a heavy challenge by Danny Rose. But the City boss believes the midfielder should be fine ahead of the cup clash against Arsenal. [FULL STORY]

Finally, Everton have been boosted by the return of Theo Walcott ahead of Thursday night's Premier League clash against Southampton.
