Zouma has used his time out of the side as a learning experience and the defender says he is ready to come in and show his quality in today's FA Cup third round tie.
"It's a very good feeling because I was out for a long time so it's nice to be back with my team-mates and involved with the squad," he told chelseafc.com.
"Of course, everybody wants to play but we are doing very well at the moment and hopefully we are going to continue like that. The most important thing is that we are a team, we want to win so we must all stick together. Everybody's chance will come so you must be patient. Those who have been playing have been doing well but I am ready."
