Edouard Mendy was taken off at half-time against Aston Villa on Sunday, while N’Golo Kante missed that game with a hamstring problem; Chelsea has also returned 800 unsold tickets from their allocation ahead of Saturday’s Champions League final.
Edouard Mendy and N’Golo Kante returned to Chelsea training with the rest of the first-team squad at Cobham on Wednesday in a welcome boost ahead of Saturday’s Champions League final.
Mendy was replaced at half-time against Aston Villa after he injured his ribs colliding with a post, while Kante missed Sunday’s defeat at Villa Park with a hamstring problem.
N’Golo Kante is also back in Chelsea training after a hamstring problem.
Last week, Chelsea Supporters’ Trust released a scathing statement attacking UEFA’s decision to move the match to Porto.
“The UEFA executives making these decisions clearly have little empathy or concern with match-going supporters. They are deeply out of touch,” it read.
