Chelsea have been handed a major injury boost ahead of their Champions League clash with Zenit on Wednesday night, The Times reports.

Chelsea midfielder, Mateo Kovacic, is said to be in line to face Zenit at the Krestovsky Stadium as he returns from injury.

The 27-year-old has recovered from his injury and began full training on Monday.

Kovacic has missed Chelsea’s last eight games with a hamstring injury.

The Croatia international sustained the injury in the last minute of a training session back in October.
