The last international break of the season has finally come to an end, and Chelsea will be returning to action tomorrow as they continue to stagger toward the finish line. They'll be doing so without two of their better attacking options, one ruled out due to injury, while the other is still suspended.
Guus reports that Eden Hazard is not available this weekend. Diego Costa is back training well but is suspended. #CFC— Chelsea FC (@ChelseaFC) April 1, 2016
In addition to Hazard and Costa, several Chelsea players are just now returning to London. Oscar, Willian, and Bertrand Traore have returned to Cobham for the first time on Friday, so their status for Saturday's match is still yet to be determined.
Guus says Oscar, Willian and Traore return from internationals today so their availability will be assessed after training. #CFC— Chelsea FC (@ChelseaFC) April 1, 2016
Should Guus rule any of the above trio out, he might have to resort to drastic measures on Saturday afternoon.
Guus reports that Pato will be involved in the squad tomorrow and the remaining eight games might be a time for some experimentation. #CFC— Chelsea FC (@ChelseaFC) April 1, 2016
