Chelsea return to Premier League action on Saturday when they host Aston Villa at Stamford Bridge. The Blues entered the international break in their best form in a long time, with three victories and a tie across all competitions. I’m sure the team will be looking to maintain their excellent form as club football returns.
The Blues are unquestionably favourites to win this game given their recent records against Aston Villa. Graham Potter must field a quality lineup to guarantee the Blues take all three points.

That being said, the remaining of this article will take you through the most recent injury news from Cobham ahead of the Blue’s game against Aston Villa this Saturday.
Here are 4 Chelsea Stars who have returned to full team training and will most likely be available for this crucial game;
1. Edouard Mendy
After recovering from a fractured finger, Edouard Mendy used the international break to get back into shape. He has been spotted in full squad training this week, indicating that he is ready to return to the pitch. The Senegal international might start this game instead of Kepa, who would have been tired after the international break.
2. Raheem Sterling
Sterling has also taken advantage of the international break to recover from a hamstring injury that has kept him out since early March. He has returned to full team training and will almost certainly play in Saturday’s game.
3. Joao Felix
Following his involvement in the international break, the Portuguese attacker has returned to full squad training. He impressed for Portugal during the break and will almost certainly play in Saturday’s match.
4. Mykhailo Mudryk
Following his participation in the international break, the Ukrainian attacker has returned to training. He is expected to play in Saturday’s match.

1. Mason Mount
Mount has been in the transfer news recently and appears to be on his way out of Chelsea, which many Chelsea fans are unhappy about. Other from that, he has been healing from a pelvic ailment and has not resumed training. He will most likely be unavailable for his game.

4. Cesar Azpilicueta
Cesar has not been named to a team since suffering a concussion last month. As of now, it’s unknown when he’ll return.
