‘About Time He Is Desperately Needed’ ‘Huge Boost’ ‘Finally’ Chelsea Fans On Twitter Delighted By Latest Injury Update

Chelsea defender Antonio Rudiger could make his comeback from injury after the international break, according to the Athletic journalist Simon Johnson.

Fans on Twitter are delighted with the news, with many believing Rudiger has been sorely missed:

The fact that Chelsea have kept one clean sheet all season kind of sums up the porousness of the Blues’ defence at the moment. Individual mistakes and a lack of organisation have meant that Frank Lampard’s side currently have the fourth-worst defensive record in the Premier League.

Rudiger may not be able to fix all of the issues by himself, but his experience and leadership at the back will definitely help things. With Fikayo Tomori having grabbed his chance, it will be interesting to see whether Rudiger can form a good partnership with the 21-year-old.
