Graham Potter, Chelsea's boss, will be hoping that his team can begin the second half of the Premier League season well against Bournemouth.
Reece James will rejoin Chelsea's lineup to face Bournemouth in the Premier League.
The England full-back is gradually regaining his full composure after missing the World Cup in Qatar due to a knee injury.
Regarding Chelsea's exhibition game against Brentford, Potter noted that Reece had been training with the team and had played 65 minutes during the previous week.
Reece James, who has resumed training and might play, has received a positive update, though.
Wesley Fofana, meanwhile, is out after getting a knock during Chelsea's friendly against Aston Villa on Wednesday.
Wesley just had a little setback, as can sometimes happen at the very last stage of rehab. So he’ll be there for a couple of weeks.” said potter
N'Golo Kante will be sidelined until at least February after hamstring surgery, Ruben Loftus-Cheek has a heel issue, Ben Chilwell has a thigh issue, and Armando Broja will be out for the remainder of the season after rupturing knee ligaments.Potter's attack will now depend on Raheem Sterling and Pierre-Emerick Aubamyeang to perform in advance of a busy period over Christmas and the new year as a result of Broja's recent setback.
N'Golo Kante and Armando Broja will be absent for a while, while Ruben Loftus-Cheek and Ben Chilwel will continue to be unavailable.
After his World Cup exploits with Senegal, Edouard Mendy has returned to training with the Blues.
With players like Thiago Silva, Hakim Ziyech, Christian Pulisic, and Kai Havertz all returning from international competition in Qatar, Kepa Arrizabalaga will hope to continue his good fortune since Potter's appointment.
Koulibaly, Chalobah, Cucurella, Jorginho, Gallagher, Mount, Sterling, Azpilicueta, Zakaria, Chukwuemeka, Hall, and Casadei are additional available players.
Predicted Chelsea XI
Kepa, James, Thiago, Chalobah, Cucurella, Zakaria, Gallagher, Mount, Sterling, Havertz, Aubameyang.
