Chelsea confirm double boost ahead of Brentford clash

Chelsea confirm double boost ahead of Brentford clash

Chelsea have confirmed the return of two senior players to first-team training on Tuesday.

Brentford vs Chelsea

Chelsea will be back in Premier League action on Saturday the 16th of October.

The Blues will face off with Brentford in the day’s late Premier League kick-off.

Chelsea head into the game having enjoyed an excellent start to the 2021/22 campaign.

Granted, they would be dealt their first league loss of the season at the hands of Manchester City shortly before the October international break.

However, Thomas Tuchel’s side were still able to top the league table heading into the break thanks to Liverpool, who are the only side unbeaten in the PL this term, drawing three games.

And with Chelsea now set for a much, on paper, kinder run of games, it is expected that the Londoners will remain around the title picture for some time.

Brentford, though, are not expected to be a pushover. The Bees have enjoyed a fine start to their first-ever Premier League campaign, winning three, drawing three and losing one of their first seven ties – beating Arsenal and drawing with Liverpool in the process.

Chelsea confirm Kante & James’ return to training

Ahead of the game, Chelsea have been handed two big boosts on Tuesday.

N’Golo Kante would miss Chelsea’s last two outings vs Juventus and Southampton with Covid-19.

Reece James, meanwhile, had to withdraw from the England squad recently with an ankle issue.

Now though, Chelsea have themselves confirmed that both Kante and James returned to training with the Londoners on Tuesday:

Midfielder N’Golo Kante has returned to full training at Cobham following his period of self-isolation, whilst Reece James was also involved after withdrawing from the England squad last week due to an ankle injury picked up in the game against Manchester City.
