Chelsea dealt major injury blow ahead of Aston Villa

Chelsea return to action next Saturday vs Aston Villa.

After being held to a 2-2 draw by relegation-threatened Everton it is a tie that the Blues simply have to win.

Chelsea are currently sat 10th in the Premier League and look unlikely to secure any form of European football next term.

The west Londoners are four points off 7th, but 7th place is currently occupied by an in-form Brighton, who have two games in hand on Chelsea.

As a result, Graham Potter’s side need to have a very strong end to the campaign to stand any chance of even securing a Europa Conference League spot.

However, they will have to do so without one of their key men.

Reece James has missed more matches than he has played for both club and country this season after suffering a serious knee injury, along with a further setback and is now delicately managing a hamstring issue.

“Reece has gone back, he’s not completely happy with how his leg feels,” Southgate said. “He was a little bit concerned about that earlier in the week.”
