Cucurella didn’t play in the game against the Cherries due to illness, but it seems he’s recovered quickly and is putting in the extra work to ensure he’s as sharp as possible when he returns for Mauricio Pochettino’s side.
The Spaniard struggled for Chelsea last season, despite previously looking like such a top talent during his time at former club Brighton.
CFC supporters will hope Cucurella can come back and have a positive impact for the team, though Fabrizio Romano has recently revealed to CaughtOffside that the player is likely to leave Stamford Bridge in January.
Cucurella was close to joining Manchester United in the summer before the move fell through.
