Chelsea have no fresh injury problems ahead of Saturday’s Barclays Premier League match against Leicester at Stamford Bridge.
Goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois could again be selected ahead of veteran Petr Cech.
Striker Didier Drogba shrugged of an ankle problem to make a late substitute appearance in the 3-1 win at Burnley on Monday night, and is in line to make his competitive return to the Bridge in Chelsea colours having rejoined the club in the summer.
Leicester manager Nigel Pearson hopes Jamie Vardy and Marc Albrighton could be fit for Saturday’s Barclays Premier League trip to Chelsea.
Striker Vardy (thigh) and winger Albrighton (groin) may return for the Stamford Bridge clash, which will come too soon for Danny Drinkwater (hamstring) and Matty James (shin).
Summer signing Matthew Upson (foot) is still a couple of weeks short of a return.
