Kai Havertz’s status for Chelsea’s clash with Man United confirmed

 

Chelsea have been handed a late boost on the personnel front, ahead of the club’s fast-approaching showdown with Manchester United.

Pensioners on song

Thomas Tuchel’s men are of course set to return to action in a little under 48 hours’ time.

In the marquee fixture of the Premier League weekend, the Blues will welcome in-limbo Manchester United to Stamford Bridge, for a Sunday evening kick-off.

Chelsea, as things stand, sit pretty atop the English top-flight, having fallen to just a solitary defeat all season, whilst boasting a remarkable +26 goal difference.

And, as alluded to above, on Friday night, the Pensioners’ hopes of precisely that have been boosted ever further, by a positive piece of news on the personnel front.

Kai Havertz was of course forced to sit out his side’s hammering of Juventus during the week, after picking up a hamstring injury in Chelsea’s prior win over Leicester City.

In turn, the German’s participation on Sunday had since been viewed as altogether up in the air.

But, as confirmed by a host of reliable sources on Friday evening, any such concerns have now been put to bed, with Havertz ‘fit and available for selection’ versus Manchester United:
