Chelsea duo Alex and Yossi Benayoun will be available for the Champions League places decider against Manchester City on Sunday.

City are currently lying in third, two points ahead of Chelsea but have played a game more.

Brazilian Alex is back in training following a knee injury that has ruled him out since November but is not fit enough for the Champions League tie with FC Copenhagen.

Israeli Benayoun has also returned to training following an achilles problem that has sidelined the midfielder since September.

Manager Carlo Ancelotti is happy to have his squad fit but will not risk the pair until the weekend.

“Alex will not be involved tomorrow but he will be involved in Sunday’s game,” Ancelotti said.

“Benayoun will come back to train maybe Thursday or Friday with the team, so every player is fit and in good condition.”
