Solskjaer confirms attacker comeback


Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has confirmed that Jesse Lingard has returned from a hamstring problem ahead of the Europa League clash against Partizan Belgrade.

The England international sustained the injury during the closing stages of the 0-0 draw against AZ Alkmaar this month and he has since been absent for the meetings against Newcastle United and Liverpool.

Speaking ahead of the Partizan game, Solskjaer has confirmed that the United graduate is back in contention for the first-team duties but he has yet to decide on the attacker’s playing time against the Serbian opponents.

“It’s fantastic to have him back fit. He’s been so lively and bubbly in training. I don’t know how much game time we’ll give him but he looks like he needs to catch up on lost time,” he told MUTV.

Manchester United have failed to win any of their previous 11 matches away from home and Solskjaer will be hoping that the Red Devils can put the unwanted record to bed against Partizan.

Chelsea receive double injury boost


Chelsea have received a fresh injury boost with young duo Callum Hudson-Odoi and Reece James tipped to return to first-team action following the ongoing international break.

Hudson-Odoi suffered a serious Achilles injury during the penultimate month of the previous campaign but he has made a swift recovery to participate with the Blues in regular training.

James, meanwhile, has been a short-term absentee following the ankle problem sustained on England Under-20 duty but he appears close to making his Blues debut after similarly returning to first-team training.

According to injury analyst Ben Dinnery, both players are set to make their injury comebacks following the international break and they could take the playing field by the end of the month.

Hudson-Odoi’s absence has not hampered the team drastically with the emergence of Mason Mount while Tammy Abraham has been able to show his goalscoring exploits.

On the other hand, James has been regarded as the future choice for the right-back spot but he could be handed with an early debut, considering the poor form of Cesar Azpilicueta in the role this season.

Chelsea receive injury boost with attacker returning to training

Hudson-Odoi returns to regular training


Chelsea have received a much-needed injury boost with Callum Hudson-Odoi returning to first-team training following his recovery from an Achilles problem.

The England international picked up the injury during the month of April and he thereafter went through a surgery which has ruled him out of action to date.

However, it appears that he is on course to make a comeback by the middle of September after joining his teammates in regular training for the first time this season.

Hudson-Odoi has less than 12 months remaining on his existing deal with the Blues and so far, he has shown no indication whether he would be willing to extend his stay.

Blues boss Frank Lampard has remained positive when asked about the potential contract renewal but Hudson-Odoi may wait for a couple of months to assess whether he can command a regular role under the new manager.

Chelsea have managed to secure the single point after the opening two league games of the season. They are scheduled to face Norwich City on the road this weekend.
