Chelsea press conference LIVE: Mauricio Pochettino on Reece James, injuries and Arsenal clash


Welcome to 's live coverage of Mauricio Pochettino's press conference. The Blues boss is set to face the media on Friday afternoon ahead of Chelsea's clash against Arsenal at Stamford Bridge.

The international break is finally over and the west London side face among the most difficult Premier League tasks when they host the Gunners, with much of the squad having had little time to prepare after jetting off around the world.

As has been common place this season, there will be a number of injury updates to come. Reece James had a setback in the break but looks to be back training, while Trevoh Chalobah and Carney Chukwuemeka look set to be unavailable.

The likes of Nicolas Jackson, Axel Disasi and Armando Broja too, pulled out of their international squads, but have been present at Cobham in recent days. Updates are sure to follow.
