Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel revealed after Chelsea’s 2-1 victory over Club America that he’s happy Ben Chilwell is back playing again

The England international suffered an injury late last year that kept him out for the rest of the season after undergoing a surgery.

Ben Chilwell played the first 45 minutes for Chelsea against Club America, with Marcos Alonso taking his place in the second half.

Asked how pleased he was to see Ben Chilwell starting, Thomas Tuchel said: “We are super happy that he’s back, and you can see it’s a difference from training to the game, and he will take his time.

“He will get this time because he deserves it. We will support him on his way back, and it was good for him.

“I’m happy nobody is injured after a physical game and physical two weeks. Same for Chilly. I’m happy that he’s back.”
