Chelsea struggle for form

Only a last-minute soft penalty against Leeds United gave Chelsea their first win in three games, and their 2nd in 5, as the side previously top of the league have hit something of a dip in form.

Draws against Manchester United and Zenit Saint Petersburg have been compounded by a freak defeat to West Ham United, in a string of below-par performances for Thomas Tuchel’s injury-hit side.

However, there does appear to be light at the end of the tunnel.

Chilwell set to return soon?

Ben Chilwell, previously thought to be out for the season after sustaining an ACL injury last month, could be set to return. However, the injury is seemingly not as severe as first thought, and Nizaar Kinsella of revealed that he did some light fitness work on Tuesday afternoon.

Now, speaking to the media ahead of Chelsea’s clash with Everton at Stamford Bridge, Thomas Tuchel corroborated those claims, revealing that:

This will come as a massive boost to Thomas Tuchel and co, who have only Marcos Alonso as a recognised left-back at present, and have struggled in the absence of Chilwell.
