Two Chelsea stars spotted back in training before Crystal Palace

Graham Potter’s options for the weekend look set to be boosted by a pair of returning stars


Footage stemming from the training ground of Premier League giants Chelsea on Thursday points towards a double boost on the personnel front.

The Pensioners, of course, are primed to return to action this weekend.

On the back of the final pre-World Cup international break, under the watch of new boss Graham Potter, Chelsea will make the trip to Selhurst Park, for a London derby showdown with Crystal Palace.

The visitors are set to enter proceedings desperate for a bounce-back result, after failing to register victories in either of their final two outings prior to the break.

And, as alluded to above, if the latest images stemming from Cobham on Thursday are anything to go by, then such efforts on Chelsea’s part look set to be boosted by the return of not one, but two key performers.

The players in question? N’Golo Kante and Edouard Mendy.

As all of a Blues persuasion will of course be aware, both Kante and Mendy have spent time on the sidelines of late, owing to respective injury concerns.

This afternoon, though, both took part in full training alongside the rest of Potter’s squad, with an immediate return to starting duties on Saturday potentially on the cards as a result.
