Attacking midfielder Eden Hazard will feature in today's away game against Bournemouth, interim manager Guus Hiddink revealed.
The Belgium international will play for the first since the Champions League exit Paris Saint-Germain but defenders John Terry and Kurt Zouma are still on the sidelines.
"He [Eden Hazard] is available and will travel," Hiddink told reporters.
"Not for the whole game, but he's available to play.
"This week he trained physically without any complaints, which is a good signal. He was very alive.
"[John Terry?] I like people to be involved in the team, sometimes we take more than the 18 on the list, sometimes we take youth players for experience,' the Blues boss explained.
"Also, John is very committed and he's annoyed about the injury. He desperately wants to be with the team.
"He has his treatment here and he's done individual training. I'm hoping he'll step up next week and we'll see how it goes for the last couple of games.
"If we play on Monday week he has to be training with the group by Thursday [to have a chance of playing]
"[Kurt] Zouma is working very hard, I like his spirit and the fact he's trying to come back as soon as possible, but of course not this season. He's a very tough and encouraging guy."
