Chelsea have been without captain, Reece James for most of the season. James is yet to kick a ball for Chelsea in 2024 due to injury.

Reece James has battled hamstring injury all season long, but is now back from injury.

Blues boss Mauricio Pochettino has explained why having captain Reece James will be a massive boost for Chelsea at the end of the season.

Pochettino said: “We need to see today but maybe he can be available to be in the squad. The most important thing is that he is going to be there with us.

“Always to have your captain is a massive boost for any team. We have an amazing relationship and of course he is an amazing player.

“I know it is not easy always when you come from a long-term injury. The most important thing is that he can be available and can be part of the squad, and then if he can play five, 10, 15, 20 or 30 minutes it will be amazing.

“Of course it’s unlucky that it’s only in the last week and we have three games left, but it’s important to finish with good feelings and for him it is going to be amazing to be involved.”
