Leicester: Supporters on Twitter call for fast Chilwell recovery

Leicester City got their second point on the board yesterday when the Foxes left Stamford Bridge with a point after a well-fought 1-1 draw. However, they had to do so without the injured Ben Chilwell, who took to Twitter before the game to say that he’d be back soon.

The young England international defender’s absence meant that it was a return to the starting eleven for Christian Fuchs, the Austrian defender who was the club’s first-choice left-back during their title-winning 2015/16 season.

Without Chilwell, Brendan Rodgers’ side still managed to secure an impressive 1-1 draw away at Stamford Bridge, but having the young defender back in the side will be a big boost. Indeed, last season saw the defender contribute four assists, as well as averaging 1.5 tackles, 3.6 clearances and 1.1 interceptions per game, WhoScored.

The Leicester fans, as you can see, will be keen for Chilwell to return against Sheffield United next weekend as they continue to chase their first win of the season.
