Antonio Rudiger hands Chelsea major boost by returning to fitness for Saturday’s trip to Everton

Antonio Rudiger has handed Chelsea a major boost by returning to fitness in time for their trip to Everton in the Premier League on Saturday.

Frank Lampard’s men are in action at Goodison Park in the weekend’s early kick-off and are likely to be coming up against an Everton side with a new manager at the helm.

But the visitors have been boosted by Rudiger’s availability. He has only played 45 minutes of first-team football under Lampard.

The 26-year-old Germany international has been hampered by injury. After undergoing a knee operation last summer, a groin injury curtailed his involvement under Lampard until the weekend.

With a busy run of fixtures approaching in the Christmas period, it is a welcome boost for Lampard. 

Chelsea are currently fourth in the Premier League table with 29 points from 15 matches.
