Positive update on Chelsea’s Ben Chilwell emerges after ACL injury

Chelsea struggling for form

Only a last-minute soft penalty against Leeds United gave Chelsea their first win in three games, and their 2nd in 5, as the side previously top of the league have hit something of a dip in form.

Draws against Manchester United and Zenit Saint Petersburg have been compounded by a freak defeat to West Ham United, in a string of below par performances for Thomas Tuchel’s injury-hit side.

However, there does appear to be light at the end of the tunnel.

Positive update emerges on trio of players

As per the reliable Nizaar Kinsella of Goal.com, both N’Golo Kante and Trevoh Chalobah have returned to training after spells on the sidelines, both of which will come as massive boosts to the Blues faithful. Kinsella revealed:

Kante and Chalobah returned to training today, having been in yesterday doing physical work when most of the squad were off.

Better yet, there has been an update on the condition of Ben Chilwell, previously thought to be out for the season after sustaining an ACL injury last month. However, the injury was not as severe as first thought, and the same source reveals that:

“Chilwell has also stepped up his recovery and done some light fitness work on grass. This is ahead of a targeted return in early to mid-January”

This will come as a massive boost to Thomas Tuchel and co, who have only Marcos Alonso as a recognised left-back at present, and have struggled in the absence of Chilwell. His return could well coincide with an upturn in the Pensioner’s form, and allow them to challenge on all fronts once again come the end of the campaign.
