With one of the most anticipated matches of the season right in front of us, Chelsea have good news in regards to players' availability ahead of our second leg game against Paris Saint-Germain for the Champions League. First of all, striker Diego Costa is back in full training after missing our last game against Stoke City in the Premier League due to a tendon injury.

Attacking midfielders Pedro and Kenedy have also made a return following their absence from our line-ups due to a hamstring and a groin injury, respectively, and along with Costa are expected to be available for the PSG match tomorrow. Colombian player Radamel Falcao, who is not included in our Champions League's squad list, was also involved in training which could mean that he could make a return to the pitch after missing playing time since November last year.

The only absentees from full training today were defenders John Terry, who's still recovering from a hamstring injury picked up against Newcastle United, and Kurt Zouma, recovering from the unfortunate ACL injury and consequential surgery done right after that.

Apart from Terry and Zouma's absence, Chelsea will have strong options available to line-up against PSG and hopefully make a good challenge to go through the Champions League's next phase. We shall see what Guus Hiddink will bring to the quarrel tomorrow and if he will shed any light on our plans in the upcoming press conference.
