Chelsea consider bringing forward Antonio Rudiger return after Manchester United thrashing

Chelsea are weighing up bringing Antonio Rudiger’s injury return forward after conceding four goals in their opening day defeat at the hands of Manchester United.
The German centre-half underwent surgery on a knee injury earlier this year, which ruled him out of the final few games of the 2018/19 season, and he was pencilled in to return against Wolves in mid September.
Rudiger is reluctant to rush back until he feels his knee is 100% recovered but Frank Lampard is keeping a close eye on his progress with a view to bringing him back into the fold sooner rather than later, according to the Daily Mail.

Lampard’s former team-mate Gianfranco Zola believes Zouma will struggle to hold down a place in the side when Rudiger returns.
