Nicolas Jackson boost

Heading into the international break, Chelsea looked to be dealt a blow on the injury front.

Nicolas Jackson, who scored vs Burnley last weekend, had been called into the Senegal squad for their upcoming games against Cameroon and South Sudan but withdrew due to injury.

Instead, Jackson has remained in London during the international break to undergo minor surgery on his wrist.

However, the injury is not expected to be a serious one and it is understood Jackson will be available for the visit of Arsenal to Stamford Bridge after the international break, in what is a big boost for Mauricio Pochettino.

Reece James is also expected to make his return to Premier League action following a hamstring injury when Chelsea host Arsenal.

On a less positive note for the west Londoners, Christopher Nkunku, Romeo Lavia, Ben Chilwell, Wesley Fofana and Marcus Bettinelli all remain injured.
