Chelsea boss Graham Potter has issued an injury update as the Blues prepare for the return of the Premier League with a warm weather training camp in Abu Dhabi

Reece James and Wesley Fofana are among those that have been sidelined, but the pair are edging closer to a return to full fitness.

Potter told Chelsea's official website: "Reece is not quite fully training but he's integrating into training along with Wesley. Wesley is a little bit further behind but not too far."

The Chelsea boss also provided an update on the progress of Ben Chilwell, Ngolo Kante, Kepa Arrizabalaga and Ruben Loftus-Cheek.

"Ben has come back from his individual work in Dubai and he's now working closer with the guys but still not team training. N'Golo is a little bit further away but again he's progressing well.

"Kepa is not quite with the team yet but has stepped up his rehab. Ruben is doing some work in the gym so we're hopeful that he can be involved next week but we'll see how he goes.

"There are lots of players at different levels and that's the challenge but we're making progress so that's the positive."

Chelsea will face Aston Villa in a friendly on Sunday, before their Premier League campaign resumes with a home game against Bournemouth on December
