Chelsea have received a welcome boost ahead of their Premier League opener against Burnley on Monday, with the news that Didier Drogba will be fit to play despite his pre-season injury.
The Ivorian forward was expected to mess several weeks of the campaign after picking up the knock against Ferencvaros – but has recovered quickly and should be on the bench for the Blues’ first game of the new season.
Stamford Bridge manager Jose Mourinho was quoted in the Daily Mail saying: “I think he can play Monday. I cannot say now yes for sure but normally I think he will.”
The 36-year-old underwent a scan on his ankle after going down in dramatic fashion during the match against the Turkish side, but escaped without any lasting damage and will be able to provide support to fellow forward’s Diego Costa and Fernando Torres next week.
