The World Cup winner’s likely protracted stay on the treatment table, paired with some shaky performance from Rob Holding, may allow Chambers to make his first Premier League appearance of the season sooner than later. The Southampton academy product’s ability to play both in central defence and as a full-back will only help those odds.
