Chelsea will enter April in fantastic form, having won their past six games across all competitions, putting Thomas Tuchel's side in a strong position to add to their trophy collection. To their Super Cup and World Club Cup victories, the Blues can still add the FA Cup and Champions League.

The Blues, on the other hand, will need their entire squad available to handle a challenging set of fixtures next month since they will be competing in three competitions. Tuchel's side will play Brentford at home next, with the goal of securing third place in the Premier League.

As we approach the business end of the season, the international break may have come at a good moment for Chelsea, allowing them to get a number of their key players off the treatment table. Tuchel will be looking for more choices since the club is set to play as many as seven games next month, and their fixture against Leeds is still in doubt.

The Blues host Brentford at Stamford Bridge on April 2, and there is a chance that new owners will be in place before then, allowing fans to purchase tickets for the match. Only season ticket holders will be able to attend the London derby against Thomas Frank's team.

There's also a chance that other players who have been injured in recent weeks will be able to return to the team. With that in mind, let's take a look at the most recent injury news.


Reece James

Reece James made his long-awaited comeback against Newcastle, but he was injured again soon after. The 22-year-old was called up to the England team, but he pulled out on Tuesday to focus on his recuperation.

The player should be back against Brentford (H) by Saturday, April 2.


Kepa Arrizabalaga

Kepa Arrizabalaga has been a reliable back-up goalkeeper this season, but he was unable to travel to Teesside for Saturday's FA Cup tie with Middlesbrough due to sickness.

Also, the player should be back against Brentford (H) by Saturday, April 2.

Andreas Christensen

Andreas Christensen suffered yet another injury when he was substituted against Lille in the Champions League for what appeared to be a muscle problem. Due to a call-up to the Danish national squad for the upcoming international break, Tuchel revealed that the Dane would be unable to travel to Boro.

No specific date has been set for his return from injury. 


Jorginho was another player who did not make the squad for the weekend trip to Middlesbrough, though any fears of an injury were quickly dispelled when Tuchel said he used the match to rest the Italian.

Jorginho should be available to play against Brentford (H) on Saturday, April 2.


Callum Hudson-Odoi

Callum Hudson-Odoi has been out with an Achilles injury for the past few weeks. The 21-year-old also missed the most recent games, but it appears that he will be available following the international break.

Callum Hudson-Odoi should be fit to play against Brighton on April 2.

Ben Chilwell

Ben Chilwell has cruciate ligament damage in his knee, which will keep him out for the remainder of the season. The 25-year-old had a strong start to the season, but will not play again until the summer.

Chilwell has been ruled out until the end of the season.
