Mikel boost for Blues

Published Add your comment

Chelsea enjoyed a fitness boost ahead of their Barclays Premier League game at Everton when John Obi Mikel returned to full training after seven weeks on the sidelines.

The Nigeria international has been out since suffering a hamstring injury in December's 1-1 draw at Tottenham, but was back with the rest of the squad ahead of Saturday's trip to Goodison Park.

Fellow midfielder Frank Lampard is on course to make his return this weekend after missing the last three matches with a calf problem. That leaves John Terry and Ramires (both knee) as Chelsea's only injured players, with manager Andre Villas-Boas hoping both will be available for the following weekend's FA Cup clash with Birmingham.
