Zouma makes Blues return

The 21-year-old had been sidelined since suffering a cruciate knee ligament injury back in February, forcing him to miss Euro 2016 and the start of the new Premier League season.

The Frenchman played the first half against Derby County at Aldershot's Recreation Ground but it was not a straight forward evening for the defender as he gave away a penalty in the 35th minute of the 2-2 draw.

Following the game he Tweeted: "Thanks for all the messages & support - good to be back on the pitch tonight."

Zouma, who moved to Stamford Bridge from St Etienne in 2014, made 32 appearances for the Blues last season in all competitions before injuring himself against Manchester United on February 7.
