Latest Chelsea News: Chelsea’s captain, Reece James, and defender Trevoh Chalobah have suffered hamstring injuries in training, dealing a double blow to the team.

James, who had already missed the last seven games of the previous season due to a hamstring issue, will undergo a scan to assess the extent of the damage. Chalobah had a minor hamstring problem previously and aggravated it in training, resulting in an estimated one-month absence from the pitch.

James had returned to action over pre-season and played in the season opener against Liverpool. Manager Mauricio Pochettino indicated that James’s withdrawal during the match was a precautionary measure due to his fitness history. However, the current hamstring problem could force him to miss several weeks early in the new campaign.

Chelsea will likely have to manage James’s absence carefully, as he had struggled with injuries in the previous season. His absence could impact the team’s formation and strategy for upcoming matches.

Reece James was recently appointed as Chelsea’s club captain, succeeding Cesar Azpilicueta, who left for Atletico Madrid. The 23-year-old defender has risen through Chelsea’s academy ranks and become an important part of the team, making over 148 appearances for the club and winning major trophies such as the Champions League and UEFA Super Cup.

Chelsea’s manager Mauricio Pochettino is expected to provide further updates on the players’ situations during an upcoming press conference. Chelsea’s medical staff will likely assess the severity of the injuries and determine the appropriate course of action for James and Chalobah’s recoveries.
