Kurt Zouma Finally Makes Premier League Comeback; Gives Away Penalty
Kurt Zouma completed a brilliant few days for Chelsea tonight after making his comeback from a knee injury after nine months on the sidelines – but will probably be the first to admit he’s still very rusty.
The France internationalist damaged his cruciate ligaments after a really painful-looking fall against Manchester United back in February, and hasn’t been seen in the Blues’ first-team ever since.
But the speedy 21-year-old has apparently handed manager Antonio Conte a timely boost after he managed 45 minutes playing for Chelsea’s Under-23s against Derby tonight, albeit giving a penalty away in the process.
