Ahead of Saturday’s Premier League game away at West Ham, Chelsea boss Graham Potter has admitted he’s excited to have Joao Felix available for selection.

The Portuguese international has missed Chelsea’s last three games due to suspension after receiving a red card in the 2-1 defeat at Fulham.

“It’s great to have him back,” Potter said. “I think we all saw the impact that he had in his 60 minutes before the red card. You could see his quality, I see it every day.

“He’s a player that I think can make a difference for us but at the same time it’s about helping him get into the team, get integrated into the team and to the team-mates around him and for him to understand what we’re trying to do, but the signs are really positive.”
