The France International Chelsea defender is all set and ready to battle it out for a starting place in a Chelsea defence that already looks rock solid.

Zouma who sustained a knee injury in February, hasn't feature for both club and country ever since. And he has been recuperating ever since the start of this season. He finally has gained his monster fitness that made him almost the best defender Chelsea has last season.

Coach Antonio Conte gave an update on his return;

"Zouma played a game with the Under-23s and the physical answer was good. Now we prefer him to play another game on Monday and if it's all okay he will come back to us.

"I am very happy because I can have another central defender and a good central defender, a young one with great potential."

It would be interesting to see how he will manage to dislodge any of Chelsea's three Man defender, knowing fully well his capabilities and physique.
