Chelsea play Wolves next as they try to make it three wins from three in all competitions. Wesley Fofana will miss more than a month of activity, including matches against Manchester United and Arsenal. The Frenchman left Stamford Bridge on crutches on Wednesday, but fears he’d be sidelined for a while have been eased.
N’Golo Kante may miss Graham Potter’s first Premier League home game after not making the team against AC Milan, although Jorginho and Kai Havertz could return. Marc Cucurella, who was sick against Milan, could start. Let’s see who might return this weekend.
Kante is back at Chelsea. Didier Deschamps left the 31-year-old out of France’s international break squads to allow him to work on his conditioning. After missing against Milan, he’s still not match-ready.
Cucurella was expected to start against Crystal Palace, but a sickness forced Potter to bench him. Nathan Gissing of Di Marzio said Cucurella missed the London derby with a sore throat. He’s since returned and started against AC Milan.
Although he left the Eagles game with an abdominal ailment, the Italian midfielder came off the bench to play against Milan.
French news outlet L’Equipe reports that Fofana will be out of action for up to four weeks with a sprained knee. Reporter for the Daily Telegraph, Matt Law, has also corroborated the story that the French central defender will be well in time for November’s World Cup.
Havertz is another victim. The German scored twice against England in the Nations League a week ago and played 75 minutes against Crystal Palace before being taken off. Even though Havertz saw some action versus Milan from the bench, it appears that other players are currently preferred
