Ross Barkley back in contention

Chelsea midfielder Ross Barkley is fit and will be included in the squad for Sunday's trip to league leaders Manchester City.

The January signing has not featured since he limped out of the 3-0 loss to Bournemouth on January 31 but manager Antonio Conte is ready to welcome him back into the squad.

Barkley spent the last month recovering from a hamstring injury and Conte confirmed he has been training with his team-mates all week.

Chelsea are set to be without defender David Luiz and midfielders Ethan Ampadu and Tiemoue Bakayoko for the trip to the north-west as they all nurse minor knocks.
