Chelsea defender Antonio Rudiger is 'fit and ready to go' ahead of Chelsea's Champions League clash with Lille after recovering from his long-term injury woes.
The German defender has played just 45 minutes of football under Frank Lampard, having had knee surgery in the summer, following by a groin injury suffered in September.
He was expected to return in time for the club's match against Everton on Saturday - a tie they lost 3-1 - but it came a few days too soon for him.
