‘Can’t Wait’ ‘Good News’ ‘Need Them Both’ Fans On Twitter React As Chelsea Starlets Provide Double Injury Boost

Chelsea right-back Reece James and winger Callum Hudson-Odoi will be back in full training after the international break, according to the latest reports.

Both players have been sidelined for a number of months and fans on Twitter are keenly anticipating the return of the duo:

James has been sidelined since the beginning of the campaign after he needed surgery on damaged ankle ligaments. Hudson-Odoi, meanwhile, has been out since April after injuring his Achilles in the 2-2 draw against Burnley.

While both will be back in training very shortly, it is not likely that either will start against Wolves on Saturday week. Hudson-Odoi has been on the sidelines for four and a half months and will probably be given a run out for the Under 23s before a first-team return.

James has been out for a shorter period so he could be back in first team contention before the end of the month, and we may see him feature in the Carabao Cup third-round tie against Grimsby or Macclesfield.
