Chelsea boss Carlo Ancelotti has revealed Frank Lampard and John Terry will both be in contention for a place in the starting line up for the crunch clash with Manchester City at the weekend.
The Blues have made a flying start to the season, winning all five games and conceding just one goal.
However, they have had to do without both stalwarts for the past two matches, after they pulled out of England’s previous European Championship qualifiers earlier this month.
The pair are now on the mend, though, and Chelsea boss Ancelotti sent out a warning that they will have their two best players available for their biggest team of their fledgling campaign.
Ancelotti said: “Frank is training, he is not 100% yet. He will be able to play against Manchester City.
“Terry had a problem with his ribs and was not able to play, but he should be okay in two or three days.
The Italian also admitted that he will rest his big stars for Wednesday’s Carling Cup clash with Newcastle in order to give his youngsters a chance.
"We will change a lot of players for the Carling Cup because we want to use this competition for our younger players," he added.
