Ahead of Saturday’s Premier League game between Chelsea and Newcastle United at Stamford Bridge, Chelsea star Reece James has been passed fit to play.

The full-back pulled out of England U21 squad last week but has returned to training ahead of the game against Newcastle.

While James is available for selection, same can’t be said for N’Golo Kante and Andreas Christensen.

Chelsea boss Frank Lampard confirmed on Friday that Kante and Christensen will miss the game against Newcastle.

Mateo Kovacic, who picked up a knock during the international break, is available for selection while Emerson Palmieri, who has been sidelined since the 2-1 loss to Liverpool at Stamford Bridge, is also available for selection.
