🔵 Chelsea injury update: Creative duo set to return against Southampton; Mendy, Chilwell doubtful

Chelsea will be hoping to have a number of their key players back when they host Ralph Hasenhuttl's Southampton at Stamford Bridge on Saturday. 

The Blues will be looking to build on their 4-0 win over Crystal Palace last time out, which partially lifted the mood following a disappointing 3-3 draw against West Bromwich. 

Ahead of the clash, Frank Lampard has the chance to call on two of his key creators in Christian Pulisic and Hakim Ziyech. 

The duo is yet to feature this season, but they have stepped up their recovery in recent weeks and were once again pictured training on Wednesday at their Cobham grounds.

Ziyech also featured for Morocco in a 3-1 win over Senegal in a friendly match, meaning he will be ready for his debut when the whistle goes at Stamford Bridge. 

There's bad news though for Chelsea fans as both Edouard Mendy and Ben Chilwell might sit out, after picking injuries while on international duty. 

Mendy, who started in the Palace win returned to the club after picking a thigh injury while on international duty with Senegal. 

Chilwell, on the other hand, missed England's two UEFA Nations League fixtures but will be observed ahead of Saturday's clash.
