‘Good News’ ‘Finally The Wait Is Over’ ‘He Needs To Fight For That Spot Now’ Chelsea Fans On Twitter React To Latest Injury Update

Chelsea defender Antonio Rudiger has declared himself fit and available for selection for this weekend’s game against Watford.

The German international has not played since injuring his groin in the 5-2 win over Wolves last month but after a week of training without any setbacks, the centre-back says he is now raring to go:

“It is very long now [his absence]. Even with my cruciate ligament rupture, I was not out for so long. I’m itching [to play] but very patient.”

Supporters on Twitter are happy that Rudiger is now ready to play but they believe he will have a fight on his hands to become a regular starter:

Kurt Zouma and Fikayo Tomori’s form means manager Frank Lampard doesn’t have to rush Rudiger back into the side. The German had a long term knee injury before making his comeback last month but he played just 45 minutes before picking up another injury.

The 26-year-old may not start against Watford tomorrow, but he could be in line for a return to action against Ajax in the Champions League next week.
