Chelsea has received a significant injury update regarding Reece James ahead of their upcoming match against Burnley.


Reece James is making progress in his recovery from injury and is nearing a return to the Chelsea lineup after being sidelined for much of the season. The 23-year-old right-back has struggled with injuries in the past, but he’s taking positive steps towards getting back on the field.

James, who was named club captain over the summer, has had a history of injuries, including knee and hamstring problems. He missed a significant portion of the previous two seasons and was unable to play in the final six weeks of the last term due to recurring issues.

Despite a strong pre-season, James encountered fitness setbacks early in the 2023/24 season. After starting the first game against Liverpool, he was substituted due to fatigue. Subsequently, he picked up an injury in training, keeping him out of action. His expected return date is October 21 against Arsenal.

However, there is optimism surrounding James’s recovery as he has returned to first-team training. Chelsea fans were delighted to see him back on the training pitch, and images on the club’s website show him smiling while back in action.

Chelsea manager Mauricio Pochettino had been hopeful that James would return sooner. He mentioned in mid-September that James was making good progress and working with the ball on the pitch. James’s return will provide a significant boost to the team, although he will miss the next match against Burnley due to a one-match suspension handed down by the FA for actions in the tunnel after a match against Aston Villa.

With a two-week break ahead and time to recover, James is expected to be available for the match against Arsenal. He was also left out of the recent England squad, allowing him more time to regain full fitness.
