Loic Remy is set to shrug off a calf injury and take his place in the Chelsea squad for this weekend's visit of Manchester United.
The Frenchman missed a return to his old club QPR last week as Didier Drogba led the line line for the Blues in a 1-0 victory at Loftus Road.
Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho has confirmed the striker has more than a 50 per cent chance of turning out at Stamford Bridge on Saturday.
Top scorer Diego Costa remains sidelined for the visit of the Red Devils with a hamstring problem but is working on his fitness alone at Cobham.
Mourinho said: “He is progressing very well. He has a chance for next weekend. As we were saying. Our target was for Diego to play the last four matches and Arsenal is the sixth match to the end.
“If he doesn’t play against Arsenal or Leicester, it isn’t a problem. But things are going so well he has a chance. He is training and he will train with the rest of the squad next week.”
Chelsea are eight points clear of third-placed United as the pair prepare to lock horns in west London this weekend.
