Chelsea upbeat on Rudiger fitness
Chelsea are hopeful Antonio Rudiger will be able to return against Manchester City after he missed the win over Huddersfield.
The German defender sat out the 5-0 win over Huddersfield last weekend with a knee injury but could return when Chelsea head to the Etihad Stadium on Sunday.
Rudiger is Chelsea's only concern ahead of the big clash and manager Maurizio Sarri told reporters on Friday he thinks "every player will be available".
Sarri expects a stern test against City but he is confident Chelsea can claim all three points.
When asked if Chelsea can match City, he said: "I think so."
He added: "We need to be very fast when we are able to recover the ball. They are able to press really very well so it is difficult to exit that situation. If we can do that then we can do well."
