Now Chelsea await further news on whether James will be available for their forthcoming games. Graham Potter's side travel to Aston Villa on Saturday 1 April before they welcome Liverpool to west London on Tuesday 4 April.

The Reds will need a near-perfect end to the season if they're to finish in the Premier League top four and qualify for next season's Champions League. They currently sit seven points behind Tottenham Hotspur but have two games in hand.

Liverpool first return to action after the international break when they travel to Manchester City.
