Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel has given positive update on Trevoh Chalobah and Reece James.

The duo have been out for some time now, and Tuchel has revealed that they are now back in training.

Reece James has been sorely missed in the right wing-back position, and Tuchel is pleased to have the energetic defender back in training, but opted against revealing when he’d return to the pitch for games.

“We have a timeframe [on Reece’s return] but we will not make it public because we will just get asked about the timeframe,” Tuchel said.

“He is back on the pitch which is good news, but he is in individual training so far away from being a part of the squad for Sunday.

“Trevoh Chalobah is back in team training but also way too early to play the game on Sunday at this kind of level. So actually nobody is coming back, it’s the same squad.”
