England defender Ashley Cole has fully recovered from his fractured ankle and is back in the Chelsea squad for Saturday's game against Tottenham at White Hart Lane.

Cole will start on the bench against Spurs despite having no comeback matches since breaking his ankle against Everton earlier this season.

His return is also a massive boost for England boss Fabio Capello ahead of the World Cup finals in South Africa this summer.

Chelsea coach Carlo Ancelotti said: "Ashley has not played but he is very fit and trained all week with us.

"He will be on the bench tomorrow."
