Chelsea are taking on Fulham this weekend in the Premier League, and the Blues are finally in a good injury position.
The constant games had worn down their squad, and coronavirus absences didn’t help either. But according to Lampard, the squad are back to full strength at last for this game:
“We’re all good,” the Blues boss said. That means Reece James – the only first team player who was out for our last game – will be back, a big boost for us.

There was one caveat however: “N’Golo Kante is suspended but he’s back in training tomorrow. So we’re all good.”
We only heard that Kante was injured before the Morecambe game, and it doesn’t sound like it was bad. Either way, two weeks off at this time of year will probably only do him good long term.
If we can navigate past this Fulham team with three points, we’ll be in what looks like a good position going forward.
