Chelsea left-back Ben Chilwell hasn’t featured for Chelsea since picking up a knee injury in the 4-0 victory against Juventus on November 23.

The 24-year-old who occupy the left wing-back role for Chelsea has been sorely missed in the first team of late.

Reputable reporter Nizaar Kinsella has revealed that Ben Chilwell has a ‘targeted’ return date in early-to-mid January.

Chilwell is back to doing gym work as he continues his rehab with hopes that there won’t be a relapse to his injury.

Chilwell had been in impressive form for Chelsea this season raking in goals and assists, and Tuchel will definitely be looking for him to return as soon as possible.

Marcos Alonso who started the season in fine form has been far from impressive since he replaced Chilwell in the first team, and Chilwell’s return in January will indeed be a huge boost for Chelsea.
