6:35 am on 10 November 2010

Chelsea's coach Carlo Ancelotti says striker Didier Drogba has made a full recovery after he was diagnosed with malaria.

Drogba missed games against Aston Villa and Spartak Moscow last month before returning to the starting lineup.

He was used as a substitute only in the 2-0 defeat by Liverpool on Monday due to illness.
