Kenedy in line to see Chelsea action at Man City today

Kenedy could see action for Chelsea at Manchester City today.

He has been recalled from Flamengo in his homeland and trained on Friday before the team traveled to Manchester ahead of the Saturday lunchtime kick-off in the Premier League.

"We cannot say Kenedy is the solution but he can be a solution," said manager Thomas Tuchel. "He is back and I'm very happy about that.

"It is a huge opportunity for him to make his mark at this club and in this team. We will try now from today on to push and support him as good as we can."

However, Tuchel admitted it was not always so easy to bring players back from loan to solve short-term problems.

"It's not only about the need to bring players back but also about the possibility," he added. "We sent them on loan to have a full season and they have a certain role in their clubs so we don't decide all alone if we bring players back."
