- Chelsea have reportedly been given a major boost with Mateo Kovacic, Raheem Sterling and Wesley Fofana all expected to return from injury in the next fortnight.
The Croatian midfielder missed the stalemate against Liverpool with a minor calf issue, but Graham Potter has revealed that he should return for the London derby against Fulham.
Meanwhile, the Evening Standard reports that Sterling and Fofana could also be in contention for that clash.
The club’s injury list stood at 10 players after Kovacic’s issue, however it should be drastically eased in the coming weeks, with Ben Chilwell, Reece James and Ruben Loftus-Cheek also recovering from setbacks.
The report states that the trio are back in training with their recovery being managed carefully after several recurring injuries.
Chelsea currently sit 10th in the Premier League, 10 points behind Manchester United, who occupy the final Champions League qualification spot.
