On December 30, he gave fans a thumbs up after the operation.

And the England man is back at Cobham already - but hobbled in on crutches.

Chilwell posted a snap of himself on Instagram arriving at the training complex.

And he captioned it: "Back in the building."


It has so far received more than 248,000 likes and 3,000 comments.

The 25-year-old defender sustained a partial ACL tear during Chelsea's 4-0 win over Juventus in November.

Chelsea announced he would need surgery in order to repair the damage caused.

An official statement said: "After a knee injury in the match against Juventus the Chelsea medical department, in collaboration with their knee specialist, took the decision to attempt a conservative rehab approach.

"Unfortunately Ben was unable to progress and so collectively the decision has been taken to proceed this week with a surgical repair."

As a result, the defender is likely to be out of action for the remainder of the season.

The left back is not the only name on Thomas Tuchel's injury list.

And the German expressed his frustrations about the club's injury crisis following Chelsea's 1-1 draw with Brighton.

He said: “We have no more wing backs, we have everybody injured and players coming back from the Covid situation and we’re playing playing playing.”
