John Terry and Gary Cahill will return to the Chelsea squad for Monday’s visit of Tottenham Hotspur.
The defensive duo both missed last weekend’s big win on the south coast at Bournemouth but have trained with the team this week.
Manager Guus Hiddink has seen enough at Cobham to allay any lingering fears over their fitness and is ready to consider them for selection against Spurs.
Terry has missed six games with a hamstring injury and is desperate to play as many Blues games as he can before his contract expires this summer.
Cahill had been due to play at Bournemouth but pulled out of the squad on the day of the game through illness.
“I think so because they both participated in this week’s training,” Hiddink said when questioned over whether the duo could feature.
Watch as John Terry shows off his freestyle skills:
“They are ok to come into the first 18.
“It’s good to have them back, because John was out longer period because of injury. Gary a little bit the same.
“For the whole group, we said we don’t want this season to fade. The team responded well in Bournemouth.”
Spurs may have already conceded the title by the time they arrive at Stamford Bridge on Monday night, with Leicester facing Manchester United on Sunday.
But regardless of whether Claudio Ranieri’s wonders manage to seal the title over the weekend, Chelsea will be gunning for three points and the London derby bragging rights.
