Antonio Conte has been given a timely boost after summer signing Tiemoue Bakayoko confirmed he had returned to Chelsea training.
The France international is yet to play a game for Chelsea following his £40million move from Monaco earlier in the summer due to a knee injury.
Nemanja Matic’s exit to Manchester United has left the Blues short of midfield options and Conte’s squad was further depleted at the weekend after Cesc Fabregas was shown red.
The Spaniard has been suspended for Saturday’s trip to Tottenham but Conte received better news regarding 22-year-old Bakayoko.
The former Monaco sensation uploaded a picture to Instagram on Tuesday morning accompanied with the caption: ‘Ready for the training session’.
The Premier League champions will also be without club captain Gary Cahill against Spurs after he received a straight red card for a late challenge on Steven Defour.
