Chelsea received a boost ahead of their Premier League match against Everton on Saturday with the return of midfielder N'Golo Kante.
The Frenchman has been out of action since August due to a hamstring injury and has only played two games this season.
However, manager Graham Potter cautioned that they would have to take it slow with Kante as he returns to the squad, mindful of his long injury.
Potter also lamented the absence of other players such as Mason Mount, Thiago Silva, and Cesar Azpilicueta, who will miss the game due to various injuries.
Despite the absences, Chelsea is on a high after winning three consecutive games following a six-match winless run in all competitions.
The London club will look to continue their good form against Everton, who are currently 15th in the Premier League standings and have won three of their last seven games under new manager Sean Dyche. Potter praised Dyche's impressive record and the motivation and clarity he has brought to Everton's game.
