Chelsea confirm early team news ahead of Leicester with 25-year-old update

Chelsea have confirmed an interesting piece of team news about Timo Werner ahead of this weekend’s Premier League game against Leicester City. 

Chelsea travel to the King Power Stadium Saturday lunchtime to face Leicester in the Premier League, as they aim to maintain their position at the top of the table.

Werner, 25, hasn’t played since mid-October because of a hamstring problem he picked up in a Champions League game against Malmo.

However, the Blues have confirmed on their official website that the Germany international is back in “full training” ahead of the trip to the Midlands.

In addition, Mason Mount and Marcos Alonso were involved in the session after their respective issues.

Werner return big for Chelsea

Werner’s comeback to reinforce the attacking options at Stamford Bridge is great news. 

The speedster offers a different dimension to Thomas Tuchel’s side when he plays and it’s a shame his injury problem came at a time he was building some momentum.

Darren Bent said last month Werner is someone that should be in the starting line-up every game because of the chaos he creates in the final third. It may be a slight surprise if he’s thrown straight back into the XI against Leicester this Saturday, though.

He’s been linked with Spanish giants Barcelona ahead of the January transfer window. However, it looks like he’s an important part of the Blues squad.
