Graham Potter gives positive injury update as squad approaches full fitness

Graham Potter has just given an injury update in his pre match press conference, with some interesting notes for Chelsea fans.

It was more confirmation of what we suspected than anything new, but it’s firmed up our idea of what the team tomorrow will be.

Denis Zakaria and Mateo Kovacic are training, but it’s “too soon” for a start for either.

Meanwhile Raheem Sterling, who was due back from his own injury issues soon, is a doubt due to a kick.

Wesley Fofana is also back training, but match fitness will be some way away after months out.

That means we pretty much know who is playing in midfield and on the wings then. Hakim Ziyech and Noni Madueke are likely competing for that spot on the right wing.

The real selection dilemmas begin when all these guys are back. Until then, he’s got it relatively easy keeping everyone happy.
