Carlo Ancelotti was optimistic on Friday that David Luiz and John Mikel Obi would be fit for Chelsea's Barclays Premier League game at Blackpool on Monday.

Luiz has not trained since Tuesday's win over Manchester United after straining a hamstring, while Mikel hurt his knee during the warm-up for that game.
