Chelsea have been through injury hell this season, but things seemed to be turning a corner in January, and we’ve just had a two week break which will have been vital in getting several first team stars up to speed.
So Graham Potter’s press conference today was always going to be a very long and important one, with updates all round – are you ready?
The headline news is that Ben Chilwell, Reece James, Raheem Sterling and Ruben Lotus-Cheek are all “in the squad” for tomorrow. Potter was careful to point out that they’re not ready for a full game, but will be in the group at the very least.
Mateo Kovacic, N'Golo Kante, Christian Pulisic, Armando Broja and Denis Zakaria are out. https://t.co/FgfRE4259f

Then there’s Wesley Fofana, who is one step behind – training with the team but not ready for the matchday squad yet.
On the “still injured” front, there’s Mateo Kovacic, N’Golo Kante, Christian Pulisic, Armando Broja and Denis Zakaria.
Overall great news, and with Joao Felix back from his suspension next game, we might really be out of the worst of it now.
