Ben Chilwell has shared the latest on his recovery from an ACL injury he picked up against Juventus back in November.
“Hi guys. Just wanted to let everyone know I am on the way home from a successful op,” he wrote on Instagram.
“I feel very positive and motivated to work like a beast to get back on the pitch with my boys soon and help this great club win more trophies.
“Thank you all for the support and nice messages.”
The defender is expected to be sidelined for the rest of the season.
Chelsea is understood to be looking for a potential back-up for the England international, with names such as Lucas Digne and on-loan Emerson Palmieri on Blues radar.
