Potential date set for Ben Chilwell first team return


Ben Chilwell’s injury problems have hurt Chelsea almost as much as Reece James’, and while the latter has already returned and had a setback, Chilwell is still coming back from the hamstring problem he picked up against Dinamo Zagreb at the end of November.

Football.London report that there are hopes that Chilwell can be brought into the first team setup “after next week’s Premier League clash against Fulham.” That makes it sound like he will only return to full training in a week, meaning we could still be 2 or 3 weeks away from him being ready to play. That likely lines him up with James for a return around the same time, all being well.

Marc Cucurella has been able to cover in his absence, but there’s a strong sense that this team play better when Chilwell is in the side. Let’s hope his return gives Chelsea the boost they need, they are desperate for any boost they can get now.
