The Blues must be itching to get back playing this weekend now with training back underway after the international break.
The squad has been boosted with the likes of Andre Gomes and Yerry Mina starting to get up to full fitness and it’ll be interesting to see what side Marco Silva puts out against Crystal Palace.
Indeed, at left-back he has got another decision to make and it remains to be seen whether or not Lucas Digne features for the side after a good start to the campaign.
He seems to be edging it between him and Leighton Baines right now and that is certainly positive as he looks to be our long-term left-sided defender.
He’s had this to say, meanwhile, as we gear up with our clash with the Eagles:

Certainly, he already seems to have won a lot of us over and it looks as though this update has only seen more love expressed towards him:
I’m sweet on you Lucas

Great to have you back on board. All the very best Lucas for the remaining part of the season.
