Mourinho: Chelsea at full-strength for Liverpool

Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho has revealed they'll be at full-strength for this weekend's clash against Liverpool.

The Blues face Reading tonight and Mourinho said: "The situation is the same we had last weekend. I have to make a decision about Michael Essien - maybe yes or maybe no - but the rest of the squad will be the same.

"Paulo Ferreira is back so that gives me more options but I hope to have everyone back for Liverpool.

"Andriy Shevchenko and Claude Makelele are back in training and John Terry will start training normally tomorrow.

"By the weekend, only Michael Ballack and Wayne Bridge, who are recovering from surgery, will be missing. After that everything will be fine for the weekend."
