Mason Mount is said to be on the mend and in line to face Manchester United after undergoing dental surgery that forced him to miss a couple of Chelsea and England games.

N’Golo Kante was also injured in the encounter and is doubtful to play against Manchester United. Mateo Kovacic is still sidelined with a hamstring injury, and Kai Havertz is currently recovering from a thigh strain.
Timo Werner, though, did return from his own issues on Tuesday, scoring the game-winning goal in Chelsea’s 4-0 thumping of Juventus. That night, Romelu Lukaku was an unused substitute, and his return to the starting lineup is a matter of when, not if
