Chelsea promote Levi Colwill until end of the season to help cope with Andreas Christensen injury

Chelsea vs Arsenal

Wednesday evening will see London rivals Chelsea and Arsenal face off at Stamford Bridge.

The tie is of little importance to Arsenal, who currently sit five points adrift of 6th-placed Liverpool in the Premier League table, having played one game more.

As a result, their season is all but over, with nothing left to play for on Wednesday but pride.

Chelsea, on the other hand, still have it all to play for, with Champions League football not yet secured for next season.

At present, the Blues sit 4th in the English top-flight on 64 points, but 5th-placed West Ham could still technically catch them, with a six-point gap between the sides with three games to play.

A win against their London rivals on Wednesday, though, all but secures a top-four berth for next season, barring some of a miracle from West Ham, who currently have 13 worse goal difference than the Blues.

Levi Colwill promoted to Chelsea senior side

Ahead of the tie, Chelsea have made a change to their squad.

Andreas Christensen suffered an injury vs Manchester City this past weekend.

The defender is expected to miss out on Wednesday, but Tuchel did express his hope that the Dane could return for one of the Blues’ upcoming meetings with Leicester City.

But regardless, it has now been revealed by Goal that Chelsea have promoted Levi Colwill to their senior side until the end of the campaign to help cope with the Christensen injury.

Colwill is an 18-year-old, left-footed centre-back who has been at Chelsea since the age of eight.

The youngster has made 18 appearances in the Premier League 2 this season and scored one goal.
