Didier Drogba is ready to make up for lost time in the Barclays Premier League, according to Chelsea coach Luiz Felipe Scolari.

Drogba's season has been ruined by injuries and suspension but he is ready to be unleashed on the rest of the top flight in order to get Chelsea's title dreams back on track beginning with Monday's clash against Everton.

"Drogba is ready to start now," said Scolari. "Maybe he will start tonight or maybe later. But he is ready and completely fit."

He added: "We have worked in training with (Nicolas) Anelka and Drogba and sometimes it has been good and sometimes not so good.

"It has been 50-50, but I know the spirit of the group is better than before and it has evolved more now. This week has been very good for us.

"We discussed how to get past a team that plays with two central defenders and then two players more in front of them.

"We looked at what we could do when we have the ball. The players trained very well this week. They know more now and have more confidence if I change the system at some point in a game.

"Some players are ready completely to change their position if I ask them."
