Chelsea defender Alex wants Premeirship chance

Alex is ready to make his Premiership return for Chelsea.

The Brazil defender is yet to taste Premiership action this season, but is now fully fit.

Alex told chelseafc.com: "I am feeling good and I am very happy with my fitness,' reports Alex, now totally over the groin surgery that kept him out of the start of the season.

"The last 20 minutes in Madrid I was very tired but I was so happy that I come back to play and I think in my opinion that I played good. We drew 2-2 but it was okay, a good result. [Sergio] Aguero was difficult and his second goal, the free-kick, was a very good goal.

"I don't know if I will play but I hope to help the team on Saturday, or the next games after that."
