N’Golo Kante, Mateo Kovacic and Thiago Silva latest news and return dates



Finally, it looks like Chelsea are coming out of their injury crisis.

Although the issues are yet to be resolved, Graham Potter has at least been given a boost by the returns of Raheem Sterling, Reece James and Ben Chilwell as of late.

There is hope that the Blues boss – under huge pressure at Stamford Bridge – will soon have something approaching a full squad available for the first time during his reign in charge.

Still, Thiago Silva’s recent injury has dampened the mood somewhat, given his importance to the cause.

Here’s a look at Chelsea’s latest injuries…

Mateo Kovacic

The midfielder is back in training after missing the loss to Tottenham through illness and is expected to play at least some ability against Leeds on Saturday.
