Chelsea boss Graham Potter has given an update on Mateo Kovacic’s injury which made him miss the goalless draw against Liverpool on Saturday.

According to Potter, Kovacic missed the game against Liverpool due to a injury and the midfielder could return for the game against Fulham at Stamford Bridge.

Potter said: “He felt a little tightness in his calf. We’re hopeful [that he’ll be back] for Fulham.

“He felt it at the end of the Crystal Palace game. So, that’s a blow for us, but we managed it quite well, and credit to the boys who came in.”
