Chelsea handed Ben Chilwell boost/Blues’ 2021/22 Champions League designs leaked

A pair of noteworthy stories surrounding Premier League giants Chelsea have surfaced online on Monday evening.

Chilwell latest

The first concerns the fitness of one of the club’s key men.

England of course returned to Nations League action last night, with a trip to world no.1 Belgium.

The Three Lions headed into proceedings aware that a positive result was an absolute must, in the country’s bid to keep their Nations League hopes alive.

When all was said and done in Leuven, however, Gareth Southgate’s men failed to get the job done.

A disappointing display eventually saw England downed by 2 goals to nil, courtesy of strikes from Youri Tielemans and Dries Mertens.

Adding to the woes of the visitors on Sunday, meanwhile, was a blow on the personnel front.

With 37 minutes on the clock, left-back Ben Chilwell went to ground holding his back, in evident pain.

After being tended to by the visitors’ medical team, it was eventually decided that the 23-year-old was not fit to continue, as Chilwell limped off to be replaced by Bukayo Saka.

In turn, concern had since inevitably spread amongst the Chelsea fanbase, with summer arrival Chilwell having played a key role in the club’s recent resurgence.

As such, it will no doubt come as a major relief to hear that the former Leicester City man’s problem is not a serious one.

First, earlier today, it was revealed that Chilwell was simply suffering with back spasms versus Belgium.

Nevertheless, it was added that the stopper was altogether unlikely to feature in England’s next outing, when the Three Lions face off with Iceland on Wednesday night:

A further update over the last couple of hours, however, has suggested otherwise.

It is now claimed that, having been assessed further by the country’s medical team, Chilwell is in fact in contention to feature versus Iceland, suggesting his issue has not been deemed at all a serious one:

Blues’ latest look

Elsewhere on the Chelsea front on Monday, a first look at some of the club’s exclusive Champions League wear for next season has been provided online.

The sneak peek comes courtesy of the highly reliable Footy Headlines, with Nike have opted for a series of combinations of three colours – teal, black and orange.

Based on first impressions, it certainly appears as though the Londoners’ 3rd kit for the 2021/22 campaign is set to prove an outlandish one, with a series of photos accessible through the pair of tweets below:
