Good news in terms of fitness for the Chelsea crew, as Carlo Ancelotti is reporting that everyone is ready to go for the match against Tottenham Hotspur this weekend, despite some concerns that Alex and Ramires wouldn't be ready for the game after dealing with nagging injuries. So, for the first time all season, we have our full complement of players.

See? Carlo says so:

All the players are fit. Ramires and Essien had problems at the start of the week, now they are ready and fit. Alex is okay as well. All the players are ready to play, we don't have a problem.

Cool beans there. I'd been a little worried about Ramires, who I don't think has played since being sent off at Old Trafford when Chelsea were knocked out of the Champions League by Manchester United, and obviously Alex is simply being eased back after a long-term absence (although he played the full 90 there too, so I dunno).

We're also hearing reports that Didier Drogba and Fernando Torres might start together up front in a 4-4-2, although Carlo is saying that it's too soon to make a decision on that front. I would tend to be against going up against a team like Tottenham without a three man midfield, especially with the form Mikel is in, but we'll just have to wait and see what happens.
