Chelsea almost at full strength for Stoke trip

Reigning champions Chelsea are in a good position to make it four wins on the trot with almost a full roster of players to choose from for tomorrow's clash with Stoke City. The Blues are in good form at present with a trio of wins coming against Manchester City, Blackpool and Manchester United along with a win and a draw in the Champions League over Copenhagen in their most recent matches.

Tomorrow they make the trip to the Britannia Stadium to take on the 20th-placed Potters who have conceded 15 goals in their past five meetings with Chelsea.

Carlo Ancelotti will have plenty to choose from with just Salomon Kalou, Yossi Benayoun and Alex the only players in doubt.

Kalou copped a knock on international duty for Ivory Coast on the weekend and his status is uncertain whilst Benayoun managed his first piece of action since late September with about 20 minutes for Israel on Tuesday night which is a major boost for the club.

With Alex still recovering from a knee injury, things are looking increasingly positive for the London club who are currently sitting third on the table, nine points in arrears of league leaders and next week's Champions League opponents Man Utd.
