Chelsea left-back Ben Chilwell is excited to be back from injury and is eager to help turn the club’s season around.

The Blues defender has been absent since November with a hamstring injury.

“I’ve been working now for ten/eleven weeks to get back onto the grass and I’ve been back in training now for a few days, so I’m buzzing and really looking forward to getting back to the games and helping the team,” he told the club’s in-house media.

“Injuries are a part of football and missing the World Cup is something a few of the boys have had to deal with. I think it’s how you overcome that; it’s not the fact it has happened it is how you deal with it. We’ve all stayed positive, the boys that have been injured during this period, and we’re really motivated to get back and help the team.

“We’ve got a very important second half of the season with the league and the Champions League. So we’re really excited for that and hopefully, we can have a very good second half of the season and a good end to the Champions League.”
