West London giants Chelsea have been handed a big boost on the injury front ahead of the Premier League clash with Wolverhampton Wanderers.
Chelsea have key defender Antonio Rudiger back in their squad for the Wolves game on Saturday evening.
His imminent inclusion in the Chelsea squad for the Wolves game was confirmed by manager Frank Lampard during his pre-match press conference on Friday morning.
Antonio Rudiger has not played for Chelsea this season as a result of the knee injury that he sustained at the end of last season.

The German international suffered a serious knee injury during the Premier League visit to top four rivals Manchester United.
Rudiger is seen as the first choice central defender at Chelsea and it remains to be seen whether Frank Lampard will throw him into the war front immediately with Wolves lurking around the corner.
The trio of Kurt Zouma, Andreas Christensen and Fikayo Tomori have all shared centre back duties this season.
Zouma and Christensen have been the first choice centre back partnership for the majority of this season.
Chelsea have been one of the worst teams defensively after conceding nine goals in the first four games of the new league season.
