Chelsea have been without Thibaut Courtois of late thanks to injury -- Petr Cech's been forced into goal instead, which considering the state of goalkeeping around the Premier League is downright hilarious -- but according to Jose Mourinho the big Belgian should be back in action for the Blues' trip to the Britannia.

Thanks to the quality of his backup, it's not as though we're suffering, but it's always important to keep everyone healthy, so it'll be nice to see Thibaut back. Speaking of, we've got updates on Kurt Zouma and Didier Drogba, both of whom picked up some pretty nasty-looking knocks during the League Cup quarterfinal win at Derby County:

One would not necessarily expect either to play against Stoke (Drogba might be useful off the bench, of course), but after their injuries midweek -- especially the hit Zouma took -- it's good to hear that they're both close to 100 percent.
