Hazard celebrating his goal against Man Utd

Antonio Conte has been handed a major boost ahead of the clash with Tottenham at the weekend.

The Blues are looking to bounce back after being defeated 3-2 by Burnley at Stamford Bridge on the opening day. However, they will be forced to do it without both Cesc Fabregas and Gary Cahill, who were suspended on Saturday and will subsequently be suspended.

Things were looking bleak ahead of the Spurs game, with N’Golo Kante appearing to be our only fit and available centre-midfielder – but don’t despair. The below photos from today’s training suggest that both Eden Hazard and new signing Tiemoue Bakayoko were involved in full training on Tuesday.

Hazard’s influence cannot be overstated, and Bakayoko would help provide some much needed steel in midfield at Wembley. It remains to be seen whether they’ll both be fit to feature, but we’ll just have to wait and see – and keep our fingers and toes crossed.
