Two key players have returned to Chelsea training to provide Thomas Tuchel with a welcome boost ahead of Saturday’s trip to Brentford.

Midfielder N’Golo Kante has returned to full training at Cobham following his period of self-isolation, whilst Reece James was also involved after withdrawing from the England squad last week due to an ankle injury picked up in the game against Manchester City.

Elsewhere, the likes of Ruben Loftus-Cheek, Saul, Hakim Ziyech and Ross Barkley also took part in light training at a sunny Cobham.

The rest of the squad will return after this evening’s final round of international fixtures, ahead of a busy October schedule with five games across three competitions.
