Chelsea have been handed a major injury boost ahead of their Premier League clash at Leicester on Saturday.
The Blues have an early kick-off date with Brendan Rodgers’ team at the King Power as the league returns after a two-week international break.
Thomas Tuchel has had to operate without Timo Werner and Romelu Lukaku in the Blues’ last five matches, but there was good news from Cobham on Thursday as the German joined the team in full training.
The former RB Leipzig man was out with a hamstring injury he picked during a Champions League clash against Swedish side Malmo.
He joined Marcos Alonso, Mason Mount, and Lukaku in training, and could be in line to feature on Saturday.

The pictures on the club’s website showed the likes of N’Golo Kanté, Christian Pulisic, Kai Havertz, Jorginho, and César Azpilicueta all back in training, having returned from international duty.
That leaves Mateo Kovacic as the only player on the injury list, which will be a welcoming boost for Tuchel ahead of a busy schedule.
