Eden Hazard has been passed fit for Chelsea’s derby clash with Tottenham but Ashley Cole has been ruled out.
Hazard has shaken off a knock the Blues playmaker picked up while playing for Belgium this week and will be included in Jose Mourinho’s squad.
But Chelsea boss Mourinho revealed on Friday that Cole is unavailable for Saturday’s game after suffering a knee injury in training.
Cole, mainly a substitute since losing his place to Cesar Azpilicueta, is likely to be sidelined for a week or two.
“Unfortunately he got an injury yesterday in training,” Mourinho explained.
“It’s a lateral ligament, a little thing, but impossible for tomorrow and between eight and 10 days.”
