Chelsea were in top form before the international break, winning their last four games 14-1, as the team’s new signings already beginning to blend in.

One of the biggest fear of the fans and of course the manager, was that no player should return with an injury.

It has been an eventful season so far, and with many games to be played this season, the players will surely be physically demanded to go through the campaign.

It was a scary situation for the Chelsea family as Ben Chilwell limped out of his England’s clash against Belgium in the Nations League.

The Chelsea left-back started at left-wing back in a 3-4-3 system for Gareth Southgate’s side and in usual fashion, he was providing attacking intent down the left.

However, Chilwell lasted just 38 minutes as he was forced off towards the end of the first half and the defender was seen holding his back as he made his way off the field.

Frank Lampard will be hoping that it’s a minor issue with his star left-back.

For Liverpool skipper Jordan Henderson, he was withdrawn at half-time against Belgium due to tightness in his leg.

Liverpool are in a dire situation as defenders Virgil van Dijk and Joe Gomez are out injured, while Trent Alexander-Arnold withdrew from the England squad with injury.

Their left-back Andy Robertson is also a doubt with a hamstring issue while new signing Thiago Alcantara and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain are both recovering from knee injuries.

Meanwhile, forward Mohamed Salah is set to miss Sunday’s match against Leicester City as he isolates after testing positive for COVID-19.
