Massive injury boost for Chelsea as key player back in contention to play


Chelsea fans had their hearts in their mouths on Sunday evening and expected the worse as the curse of the international break threatened to strike again.

Thankfully though, they needn’t have worried, according to fresh reports.

Matt Law of The Telegraph believes that Ben Chilwell’s injury for England on Sunday night was just a back spasm and he should be OK.

Little update on Ben Chilwell. His issue last night was a back spasm. Player hoping it's not a big issue and that it was brought on by the travelling but needs to see how it settles. Can't see him being involved Weds night for England. #cfc

The Evening Standard have gone even further with their update on Chilwell. They claim that after the England medical team assessed the left back, they have deemed him to be fit and in contention to play in the friendly against Iceland on Wednesday.

This does not mean he definitely plays, and I’ll be surprised if he does. But this is great news that it was not anything serious and he appears to be fine.
