Reece James, Mason Mount and Edouard Mendy return to Chelsea training

Chelsea have announced that Senegalese goalkeeper Edouard Mendy has returned to training.

The 31-year-old underwent surgery on a fractured finger in January but is nearing full fitness.

Mendy last played for Chelsea on November 12, the last game they played before the World Cup.

He featured for his country and was involved in action in the group stages and their round of 16 game against England.

His Spanish counterpart Kepa Arrizabalaga has replaced him in the Blues’ starting XI.

However, Mendy will look to work his way back into manager Graham Potter’s first team.

Chelsea have been linked with other goalies as their current options have been unconvincing recently.

Mendy will hope to regain his starting berth and put in brilliant displays consistently.

The Stamford Bridge club have also been handed two other injury boosts.

England international right-back Reece James has also returned to training.

The 23-year-old has been out with illness and tightness in his leg muscles.

James trained this morning with the rest of the squad having missed last weekend’s game against Leicester City.

He is set to be available for Saturday’s game against Everton at Stamford Bridge.

Mason Mount was also back in training having missed the last three matches due to a minor issue with his lower abdomen.

He could be available for selection against the Toffees.

Chelsea won their last two Premier League games and will aim for another victory on Saturday.

Having Mount and James back in action would be useful for Potter after recent pressure on him.
