Radamel Falcao has handed Chelsea a fitness boost ahead of their trip to Premier League leaders Leicester City on Monday night.

The west London side are looking to return to winning ways in the Premier League at King Power Stadium after last Saturday’s surprise 1-0 defeat by newly-promoted Bournemouth at Stamford Bridge.

Falcao has been sidelined for the past few weeks with a muscular problem, which has forced Jose Mourinho to rely on controversial striker Diego Costa or play no recognised centre-forward up front for the Blues.

However, the Colombia international’s return means Mourinho has more options in attack as the Chelsea manager looks to mastermind a much-needed win against impregnable Leicester later this weekened.

Falcao wrote on his Instagram page: “Training today before Leicester City match. 💪”

The former Porto striker moved to Chelsea on a season-long loan from Ligue 1 side Monaco.

Falcao, who scored four times in 26 games during a loan spell at Manchester United last season, has netted one Premier League goal for Chelsea this term.
