Chelsea handed huge injury boost for Fulham clash

Carney Chukwuemeka news

Chukwuemeka fit to face Fulham

Chelsea have been handed a huge injury boost with Carney Chukwuemeka back in training ahead of the Premier League clash against Fulham.

Chukwuemeka had a bright start to the campaign and he scored in the defeat at West Ham United where he picked up a knee injury.

The midfielder had to undergo a surgery as a result, but he has returned to full training ahead of the upcoming west London derby.

The Blues have made a dreadful start to the Premier League season and they have accumulated only five points from six games.

They are currently languishing in the 15th spot in the standings, and are already 11 points adrift of the Champions League places.

Hence, tomorrow's game at Craven Cottage is a must-win already and Mauricio Pochettino will expect nothing else from his side.

Chukwuemeka is back in team training, but he could be handled with caution. He may feature off the bench in the Monday night derby.
