Chelsea star gives update on injury: I will be ready for season opener


Chelsea defender Branislav Ivanovic has confirmed that he should be fit to face West Ham United next week.

The Serbian suffered a shoulder injury this summer but is expected to recover in time to face the Hammers.

The 32-year-old also believes that this season will be the toughest Premier League campaign ever.

"I'm happy to be back. I'm still not 100 per cent but I think I will be ready for the start of the season," he is quoted as saying by Mirror.

"My shoulder [dislocated in Austria] is OK now.

"This could definitely be the toughest Premier League ever. Every team is strengthening and every team, after last season when Leicester won, want to be better and be the new surprise.

"Of course, the big teams want to be good again. So it's going to be very exciting.

"So we just have to go step by step and game by game and every game will be a different story for us."
