Chelsea today announced that Raheem Sterling was back training with the team after missing some time injured.
They posted pictures of him looking relaxed and happy in today’s session as the group prepared to take on Aston Villa this weekend.
However they made no mention of Wesley Fofana and Reece James, who both came back from international duty after picking up fitness issues.
But a glance at Fofana’s Instagram page shows a story of him with James in a training session.
You can see the post from Fofana embedded here:

Of course we can’t be entirely sure – it’s possible that this is a photo from two weeks ago – but the club have hidden returning players from training photoshoots in the recent past, and we wouldn’t be surprised if they were doing that again here.
Given both their issues seemed precautionary, they could well train all week and be fit this weekend.
