Angelo Ogbonna is out for the season whilst Kurt Zouma will not return to action for at least another four weeks or so.

Issa Diop has been filling in alongside Craig Dawson.

The 24-year-old possesses all of the attributes needed to be a top-class Premier League centre-back but he just isn’t consistent enough.
