Chelsea boss Carlo Ancelotti is hoping to have midfielder Frank Lampard and captain John Terry back in action next week to reinvigorate their title bid.
Defender Terry has missed the last three games with a nerve problem in his leg, while Lampard has not played since August because of a groin injury.
But both are due to resume training this week, with Terry the more likely to face Everton next Saturday.
“Next week will be an important one for Terry and Lampard,” said Ancelotti.
“We have a week to control their condition and I hope both, maybe more Terry than Lampard, will be able to play against Everton.
“They are very important players, not just technically, but because they have personality and character, and at the moment, we need to have that kind of player at our disposal.” (BBC Sport)
There is no doubting that Chelsea have missed both Frank Lampard and John Terry over recent weeks and their imminent return will please all concerned and Carlo Ancelotti will hope that both England men can help get the west London club back into gear after a series of very average displays have seen the Premier League champions lose their grip on top spot.
Lampard has not played since late August and Terry has missed the last three league games which have seen the Blues accrue just one point and have given their fellow title chasers hope as a result.
