Antonio Rudiger declares himself fit to return to Chelsea this weekend after groin injury hell – The Sun

ANTONIO RUDIGER has declared himself ready to rejoin Chelsea’s quest for a top-four spot.

The German, 26, has trained all week with no adverse effects on the groin injury which derailed his start to the campaign.

Chelsea go to Watford tomorrow and Rudiger said: “It is very long now.

"Even with my cruciate ligament rupture, I was not out for so long.

"I’m itching but very patient.”

The centre-half had knee surgery in the summer then hurt his groin slipping on a metal plate beside the touchline at Wolves in his comeback game on September 14.

Frank Lampard is hopeful that N'Golo Kante will be available soon as he nears his return to training.

But the France international, who has missed TEN games this term, is not expected to face Watford.

Chelsea travel to Vicarage Road after a 2-1 defeat to Manchester United in the Carabao Cup.

Marcus Rashford scored an incredible free kick to win the match for United after Michy Batshuayi's equaliser.
