Graham Potter’s men face AC Milan tomorrow, and his squad appears to be in better shape.
Chelsea return to Champions League action this week, looking for their first win after a 1-0 defeat away at Dinamo Zagreb and a 1-1 draw at home against RB Salzburg.
The Blues return to Stamford Bridge to face AC Milan in a must-win game if they are to advance beyond the group stages, and it appears that Graham Potter will have his hands full with major decisions.
So far, the new head coach has made some significant tactical changes to his line-ups, such as playing Raheem Sterling at wing-back, so it will be interesting to see what he does on Wednesday night.
N’Golo Kante, Edouard Mendy, and Marc Cucurellawere all in attendance at Chelsea’s final major team training session at Cobham, and all looked like solid options for the tie.
Kante hasn’t played since suffering a muscle injury late in matchweek two against Tottenham Hotspur, while Mendy was injured after Thomas Tuchel’s final victory against West Ham United three weeks ago.
Cucurella missed Chelsea’s 2-1 win over Crystal Palace on Saturday due to a throat problem that required him to be hospitalized before being released on Monday morning.
Potter gets a huge boost from the three returning players as he faces the biggest football challenge of his career.
