Chelsea handed massive boost as Thomas Tuchel reveals when star trio are set to return to training

Chelsea face midfield injury crisis

Chelsea are facing something of an injury crisis, not least in midfield.

At present, N’Golo Kante and Jorginho are both injured, while Mateo Kovacic is match-fit but has been sidelined after testing positive for COVID-19. Meanwhile, Ruben Loftus-Cheek also pulled up with injury before the game against Zenit Saint Petersburg, with Thomas Tuchel revealing:

“Unfortunately, for many weeks, we are without N’Golo Kante and Mateo Kovacic, and now without Jorginho and Ruben Loftus-Cheek was out after the warm-up.”

This leaves Tuchel with just the underperforming Saul Niguez, who has been hooked at half-time in both of his Premier League appearances so far, as a viable option in the centre of the pitch against Leeds, with the German already confirming that Reece James, trialled in central midfield against Zenit, will revert to right back.

Fortunately, it should not be for long.

Tuchel sets return date for key trio

Speaking ahead of the clash with Leeds, Tuchel has handed the Blues faithful a massive boost on a trio of players.

Firstly, and perhaps most importantly, the Chelsea boss outlined that he expects Kante will return to full training again on Tuesday, after several weeks out.

In further good news, he is also expecting the exciting Trevoh Chalobah to return at the same time.

This means that, while they will be unlikely to be fit in time to face Everton on Thursday evening, they will be in contention for Chelsea’s trip to Wolves on Sunday afternoon.

They will be further boosted by the return of Mateo Kovacic for that clash too, with the Croatian midfielder match fit but currently isolating after testing positive for COVID-19.
