Chelsea summer signing Raheem Sterling has stepped up his recovery from a hamstring injury ahead of the Blues’ clash against Fulham next week.

Sterling, who joined Chelsea from Manchester City last summer for around £50million, hasn’t not featured for Chelsea since picking up an injury in the 1-0 defeat to Manchester City in the Premier League at the start of 2023.

Sterling looks set to be in contention to make a return alongside Reece James and Ben Chilwell against Fulham after taking the next step in his rehabilitation.

The Chelsea winger has been taking part in individual training with a view to joining his teammates in full training next week.
