Chelsea are currently dealing with an injury crisis with some of their key players like N’Golo Kante and Reece James out of the action.

            The West England base football club had an underwhelming start to the season that saw Thomas Tuchel get the sack. The club’s hierarchy then appointed Graham Potter as manager and there have been signs of improvement since.

            Graham Potter’s men are unbeaten under his management so far, winning four of their five matches in all competitions. They are fourth in the Premier League points table and second in their UEFA Champions League group.

            However, the Fulham side has seen some of their key players suffer due to injuries. On that note, let’s take a closer look at the updates on their injuries and expected dates of return.

Reece James

The right-back was subbed off at the hour mark in Chelsea’s 2-0 win over AC Milan on October 11 after a collision with Theo Hernadez. His knee injury could even put his appearance for the upcoming FIFA World Cup in doubt.

During a press conference on Friday (October 14) Potter, Chelsea’s manager said,

“He [Reece James] is due to see a specialist over the weekend so until we get that information there is not much more I can add. The rest will just be speculation from my perspective. We will wait and see.”

N’Golo Kante

The French Superstar and midfielder of West England side has been ruled out due to a serious injury during their 2-2 draw against Tottenham Hotspur club managed by Antonio Conte on August 14. He is expected to return a quarter of a year (three months).

“Again he’s due to see a consultant at the weekend. It’s a setback so it’s not good news. But anything other than that, at this stage I can’t give you any more,” Potter spoke about Knate.

The 47-year-old former English professional briefed about Mason Mount and Wesley Fofana.

He said that Mason Mount, the English attacker who was out due to thigh issue, will join the club on October 16 for the clash against Aston Villa, while French superstar Wesley, who suffered an injury in Chelsia’s 3-0 win over AC Milan on October 5, will continue out till World Cup.
