Ricardo Carvalho is in line to returnn for the New Year's day clash with Liverpool.Chelsea are hopeful Ricardo Carvalho will be back in action for the New Year's Day clash with Liverpool.
Carvalho missed the weekend win over Norwich City after struggling with a broken toe injury he picked up against former club Porto in the UEFA Champions League.
The Portuguese international has a chance of returning for the Boxing Day meeting with Aston Villa, but Blues boss Jose Mourinho has hinted he will rest him for the trip to Anfield six days later.
"I think he can come back maybe for Aston Villa on Boxing Day, maybe not - but for Liverpool on New Year's Day for sure.
"So if we don't have any more injuries, we are in a good position to fight in the four matches we play over Christmas."
