The Blues have been handed a double injury boost ahead of tonight’s Premier League game against Brighton at Stamford Bridge.

Chelsea have struggled with injuries and Covid-19 absentees in recent weeks which has affected our form in the league.

Ahead of the game against Brighton, Chelsea stars N’Golo Kante and Kai Havertz have returned to training.

Kante trained with his Chelsea team-mates on Tuesday after picking up an injury in the victory over Aston Villa and looks to be in contention to face Brighton, along with Havertz who has missed four consecutive games through illness and Covid-19.

Meanwhile, Chelsea left-back Ben Chilwell is set to miss the rest of the season as he prepares to undergo knee surgery.

A statement from Chelsea said: “After a knee injury in the match against Juventus the Chelsea medical department, in collaboration with their knee specialist, took the decision to attempt a conservative rehab approach.

“Unfortunately Ben was unable to progress and so collectively the decision has been taken to proceed this week with a surgical repair.”
