Reece James

Chelsea could be without Reece James for their Premier League clash against Norwich on Thursday night after the defender picked a minor injury. 

The Englishman only returned to action after a lengthy lay-off with a hamstring injury.

He impressed in the weekend win over Burnley at Turf Moor where he registered a goal and an assist in our 4-0 away win.

In his pre-match conference on Wednesday, coach Thomas Tuchel revealed the England international is doubtful for tomorrow’s clash.

“Everybody was on the training pitch today except for Ben Chilwell and Reece James, who has some muscular problems after his three games,” Tuchel reported.

“He has muscular problems in his other leg, not the previously injured leg, but he will still need some further assessment.

“He felt it during the match and it didn’t get any better. Today there will be further examinations. It’s obvious what he can give to our team, so it is not good news at the moment,”

The Blues could strengthen their grip on third spot with a win against the bottom-placed club and cut the difference between them and second-placed Liverpool.
