Star Set to Return for Chelsea vs Stoke

Mikel ChelseaChelsea are running away with the premier league title having taken 6 points lead over Manchester City and have a game in hand as well.
However, the Blues have suffered a major blow with their star striker Diego Costa out injured with hamstring problem.
Hamstring injury normally takes weeks to recover in full and this is not the first time the Spaniard has suffered this problem.
For now, there is no return date but Chelsea will hope that Remy and Drogba can do the job in his absence and seal the premier league crown without any hick-ups in the remaining games.
One player who is all set to return for Chelsea is Nigerian international John Obi Mikel.
The 27 year old star has been out with a knee problem and played his last league game Aston Villa back in February.
As per PhysioRoom, Mikel is now fit to be selected for the game on 4th April against Stoke. It remains to be see whether or not he will be included in the squad.
Surely after missing more than a month of football, Mikel will not go straight into the starting XI especially when everyone else in the midfield department is fit and running.
Chelsea should be considered favorites to beat Stoke at Stamford Bridge as they have enough firepower to earn all three points even without injured Costa.
