Rafa Benitez is boosted by the return of a number of key players and says he is happy with the options available to him.
Chelsea have been forced to do without a number of key players in recent weeks but the treatment room is starting to empty just at the right time as the club are about to embark on their Europa League campaign.
Eden Hazard, David Luiz and Petr Cech all returned against Wigan yesterday, John Terry may have suffered a knee injury but is back in contention, while Nigeria duo Victor Moses and John Obi Mikel are set to return from the Africaa Nations Cup next week.
Benitez is delighted to have the players back and believes it puts them in a great position to kick on.
"Before we didn't have these options in some positions," Benitez revealed. "Now it's much better because you can manage the game in a different way.
"In the past we didn't have these kind of options and it was more difficult to change the game."
