Chelsea dealt another blow as Reece James is set to undergo another surgery

Chelsea has received another setback as Reece James is set to face a four-month spell on the sidelines following hamstring surgery.

The Chelsea captain sustained the hamstring injury during a 2-0 loss to Everton earlier this month. Given his history of hamstring issues, James has opted for surgery in Finland, according to reports from the Daily Mail.

The seriousness of the injury indicates that Reece James is likely to be out of action for a period ranging from three to four months after undergoing surgery.

After missing the initial two months of the season due to a hamstring injury, Reece James returned to action for only one month before experiencing a recurrence of the problem. Despite taking his time to decide on surgery, there is optimism that the procedure will address the issue definitively.

Leading specialists Sakari Orvara and Lassi Lempainen in Finland, where Ousmane Dembele and other elite footballers have previously undergone hamstring surgery, are considered reputable figures in the field.

Reece James is not expected to recover in time for England’s March friendlies against Brazil and Belgium. However, there is a possibility that he could be considered for Gareth Southgate’s Euro 2024 squad. In the absence of James, Mauricio Pochettino is likely to continue using Axel Disasi as his replacement, as seen in Chelsea’s recent matches.
