James back in training after surgery

Chelsea right-back Reece James has returned to light training following his recovery from his hamstring surgery.

The England international has had another injury-plagued campaign and he has played only 451 minutes this term.

James underwent a surgery earlier this season after a second hamstring problem and he is now on his way back.

The 24-year-old has started light training with the Blues. He could be in line to make the squad in the coming games.

The London giants will not want to rush him back into action, but he could be involved in the Carabao Cup final this month.

The Blues have had a poor Premier League season and they are currently languishing in the 10th spot in the standings.

Winning the Carabao Cup could be their best route into Europe. The winner will earn a berth into the UEFA Conference League.

The Blues will have an eye on the prize but it won't be easy with Liverpool in red-hot form and favourites to win the trophy.
