Saul set for Chelsea debut next weekend
Chelsea’s newest signing Saul Niguez is expected to make his debut when the Blues host Aston Villa next weekend.
The Spaniard joined the Blues from Atletico Madrid on deadline day. The club signed him on loan with an option to buy.
He has since travelled to the English capital, and has already been involved in a couple of first-team training sessions at Cobham.
According to football.london, the 26-year-old could make his Blues bow when they entertain Villa at Stamford Bridge on September 11.
N’Golo Kante is currently nursing an ankle injury while Jorginho and Mateo Kovacic are presently out on international duty.
Saul is likely to get the nod for the starting lineup alongside either Jorginho or Kovacic. The former could partner him in midfield.
The Blues have accumulated seven points from their first three matches, and are currently fourth in the league standings.
They recently drew 1-1 at Liverpool. They played the second half with one man down after Reece James’ sending off.
