Reece James, Kai Havertz, Wesley Fofana: Chelsea injury news and return dates for Aston Villa

Graham Potter will likely be determining the availability of several of his Chelsea players today following the conclusion of the March international break. The Blues take on Aston Villa in the Premier League on Saturday where Potter could be without a number of key stars.

Cobham was likely a quiet venue the past fortnight with multiple Chelsea stars representing their countries in European qualifiers. However, two of those players away from west London in Kai Havertz and Reece James returned early from international duty and are therefore weekend doubts.

For others, notably N’Golo Kante and Christian Pulisic, the break provided the perfect opportunity to get minutes in the tank on the training pitch and send a clear message to Potter they are ready for more game time. Cesar Azpilicueta, Thiago Silva, Edouard Mendy and Armando Broja are still expected to be absent and they could be joined by two stars who will likely face late fitness tests.

Kai Havertz is the latest name on the list of doubts for Graham Potter after the forward returned from international duty with Germany. In a statement on social media, Germany confirmed Havertz was set to return to Chelsea through illness which has since been labelled as a flu infection, but it is hopeful he can recover in the week and will be available for Saturday’s match.

Injury: illness

Expected return date: Aston Villa (H) – April 1
