Team news: David Luiz, Martinelli, Partey, Pepe

Here’s our latest update ahead of Sunday’s Premier League match against Burnley:

David Luiz

Head. David sustained a deep laceration to the head during Wolves (h) on November 29. Due to the significant impact, David has continued to be closely monitored for a concussion and has followed all protocols. David is now back in training and his fitness will continue to be assessed ahead of Sunday’s match.

David has been in contact with Raul Jimenez and we were all delighted to see the pictures of Raul visiting his team mates at the Wolves training centre last week. The best wishes of David and everyone at the club continue to be with Raul and his family.

Gabriel Martinelli

Left knee. Sustained injury during training on June 21. Gabi successfully played 45 minutes for the Under-21s in the EFL Trophy on Tuesday night. He has recovered well from the match and is now in full training.

Thomas Partey

Left thigh. Sustained a strain to the left thigh during Tottenham Hotspur (a) last Sunday. This is in the same area of the thigh as the initial strain which Thomas sustained against Aston Villa (h) on November 8. Thomas will be unavailable for forthcoming matches and is working hard with our medical team in order to return to training as soon as possible.

Nicolas Pepe

Suspended. Serving the last of a three match Premier League suspension.


As part of Premier League protocol, all members of our first-team squad and support staff continue to be regularly tested for COVID-19.
