Chelsea star resume training ahead of Newcastle game

 Chelsea defender Levi Colwill has now been spotted back in first team training ahead of the return of the Premier League this weekend.

Photos on the 5th Stand app show the England man back amongst his first team peers after deciding to miss the opportunity to represent his country this week.

A shoulder injury saw him miss his first game of the season against Manchester City, with that being the last time the Blues took to the field.

The fact that he had started every Premier League game before that shows just how important he has been for Mauricio Pochettino since he took over.

He has featured predominantly at left-back this season, however in more recent times has had opportunities to play in his more recognised position in the middle.

The manager will have been over the moon to therefore see the youngster back with his peers this week as Chelsea look ahead to some more tough fixtures.


After games against Tottenham and Manchester City before the break, they will return with a trip up north to take on Newcastle.

Pochettino will be hoping that not too much form will be lost over the break, with them coming off arguably their best performance of the season against City following the big win against Spurs.

He will be closely monitoring the fitness of his key players off the back of the final international break of this year.

While the European contingent seem to have come through unscathed, he will be wary of both Moises Caicedo and Enzo Fernandez’s fitness, after they finish representing their nations in South America.
