Chelsea defender Antonio Rudiger has only played 45 minutes so far for Chelsea this season, having struggled with injuries.

After undergoing a knee operation last summer, a groin injury he suffered during Chelsea’s 5-2 victory over Wolves early this season has kept him sidelined.

According to Daily Mail, Rudiger has handed Chelsea boss Frank Lampard a major boost by returning to fitness in time for Chelsea’s trip to Everton in the Premier League on Saturday.

Rudiger’s return to fitness will be a welcome boost for Lampard with a busy run of fixtures approaching in the Christmas period.

Chelsea are currently fourth in the Premier League table with 29 points from 15 matches.
