Chelsea have made a slew of signings this summer, and fans are understandably excited to see them in action.
Unfortunately, according to an exclusive report in the The Athletic today, they may have to wait a little longer than they hoped to see some of them.
Hakim Ziyech and Ben Chilwell have both effectively been ruled out of the Monday night clash with Brighton. Chilwell with a heel injury he suffered back in July playing for Leicester, and Ziyech with a twisted knee picked up against (also) Brighton in our friendly a week ago.
Christian Pulisic on the other hand, has recovered quickly from the hamstring problem picked up in the FA Cup final against Arsenal and could well feature, apparently.
The man everyone has been waiting for, Kai Havertz, has trained for a few days now but with few first team players around. Despite that, the Athletic think he could be in contention to make his debut on Monday
