He said: “Lavia has had an ankle injury since joining Chelsea and his full return is still at least a few weeks off. Although some sources said in October playing by late November might be possible, this may be a slightly optimistic timeframe.”
He added: “I would expect Lavia to be fully fit in time for the festive fixtures. It’s a bit like [Armando] Broja. He may return to training but still needs 2-3 weeks more before he’s really ready to play 90 minutes.”
Journalist have shared thoughts that Belgian International need more than 2 weeks to be prepare for top level.
