After the international break, Chelsea Football Club has been handed a major boost ahead of the London Derby against Mikel Arteta’s Arsenal at Stamford Bridge on Saturday 21st October 2023 with the return of Captain Recce James and Center Back Axel Disasi.
Recce James picked up a knee injury on opening day against Liverpool in a 1-1 drawn game in the English Premier League and hasn’t been in action for the Blues. Axel Disasi also picked a knock two weeks ago and has fully recovered after the international break.
Both defenders had full training sessions at Cobham today with the first team. Axel Disasi will be available for the Arsenal showdown together with captain Recce James.
In addition, Badiashile also trained with the team and Christopher Nkunku, Trevoh Chalobah, Carney Chukwuemaka, and Wesley Fofana continue to be on the injury list of Chelsea Football Club.

After a poor start to the season, Chelsea is unbeaten in their last two games and will host Arsenal, who defeated treble winners Manchester City at Stamford Bridge in London on Saturday 21st October 2023.
Arsenal has won their last two games against Chelsea Football Club in the league.
