There couldn’t be a better time for the return of Chelsea star Eden Hazard and summer signing Tiemoue Bakayako.
Hazard hasn’t kicked a ball for Chelsea since May, while Bakayako has been unavailable since signing for Chelsea due to a knee injury.
However, the two players will bring a boost to the team with Chelsea having a thin squad at the moment.
Having had successful surgeries, both players have now resumed training with the first team ahead of the Spurs clash.
These pictures confirm Bakayoko is in first team training, maybe he might make his debut vs spurs? #cfc

Hazard had to be operated on having broken his ankle while on international duty and Bakayoko requiring the procedure on his knee.
However, Sunday’s clash against Tottenham will be too early for the duo to return with Conte having confirmed they wouldn’t be rushed back from injury.
