Chelsea confirm double injury boost for Brentford game
Chelsea have confirmed a double injury boost ahead of the Premier League derby at Brentford this weekend.
The west London giants are currently top of the league standings with 16 points, just one ahead of Liverpool.
They will be aiming to sustain the advantage on Saturday, and have been boosted by the return of two players.
Reece James has overcome an ankle injury, and he has already joined full training ahead of the London derby.
Meanwhile, N'Golo Kante missed a couple of games before the international break after testing positive for coronavirus.
He has also recovered from the illness. The Frenchman was also pictured in training at the Cobham complex today.
The Blues have made an impressive start to the campaign, but they need to keep on winning amid fierce competition.
Just two points separate them from sixth-placed Brighton & Hove Albion after the opening seven games of the season.
They have a fantastic chance to extend their lead as they have a friendly schedule compared to their title challengers.
