Chelsea have been boosted as Thibaut Courtois has returned to training following his injury which resulted in him being sidelined for 10 weeks, Daily Star reports.
The 23-year-old goalkeeper suffered knee ligament damage back in September and was ruled out until at least December, leaving summer signing Asmir Begovic to take his place.
Manager Jose Mourinho has seen his side struggling so far in the current campaign as the Blues sit 16th on the Premier League table, three points away from the relegation zone.
He earlier revealed that Courtois is likely to make his return sometime next month, but will not risk an early return for the Belgium international.
“Courtois is recovering well, working well, but obviously he cannot fight the time,” he said.
“He has that time until he is back.
“December for him. First week, second, third? We don’t know, but it’s December for sure.
However, his potential comeback can be seen as a huge boost to the squad as Mourinho looks to get his side back on track, especially after only being crowned champions of England earlier this year.
The keeper only featured three times so far this season, but is expected to be back in contention to win back his place between the sticks ahead of the New Year.
