Schlupp & Kelly Fit To Return

1 March 2018

Roy Hodgson was pleased to be able to report that he hopes to have a couple of his players back from injury for Monday's game against Manchester United.

Speaking at his pre-match press conference he revealed defenders, Martin Kelly and Jeffrey Schlupp have both been training this week. 

“I said last time that Jeffrey Schlupp and Martin Kelly were close to returning to full training, I think they had done one session with us before the Spurs game but they have trained all week and I am counting on those two being fit but they are the only two that are back in contention. All the other ones that were out are still injured." said Hodgson. 

The manager also provided an update on the progress being made by Wilfried Zaha.

“Wilfried is recovering ahead of schedule, but his running at the moment is pretty much in straight lines but we haven't done those difficult things that need testing out for knee ligament injuries, i.e. the twisting and turning and then of course the contact with other players when you get back into normal training.”
