Chelsea injury updates after win over Tottenham Hotspur- Latest on Reece, Sterling and Chilwell

The Blues secured a respectable 2-0 win over London rivals Tottenham Hotspur on Thursday night with goals from Trevoh Chalobah and Nicolas Jackson. Mauricio Pochettino’s side remained unscathed on the night and several first-team players returned to training last week.

Before the game against Spurs, both Thiago Silva and Axel Disasi were ruled out owing to their groin injuries which would be a major blow for Pochettino as the duo played crucial roles in the latter part of this campaign. Christopher Nkunku and Levi Colwill were involved in full-team training and could see action in Chelsea‘s next game against West Ham United in the Premier League this weekend.

Let’s take a look at Chelsea injury update as the Premier League season nears its end.
