Chelsea winger Mykhailo Mudryk is back in training ahead of Monday night’s game against Tottenham.
Manager Mauricio Pochettino has confirmed that Armando Broja could return to the bench for the Spurs clash. The Albanian international has had issues with his left knee but he is now closing on a comeback, having been sidelined since the last international break.
Romeo Lavia has provided an update on his recovery from an ankle injury. The Belgian international has been out since mid-September, having picked up the problem in a training session.
The midfielder is doing gym work, which should hopefully mean he isn’t too far away from getting back out on the grass. It remains to be seen whether he’ll be available before the end of the month.

Ben Chilwell is currently out of the country where he is continuing his rehabilitation following a torn hamstring. A return at the start of December has been pencilled in.
