Chelsea midfielder Ramires will return from a suspension and be available for selection for Chelsea's match against Leicester tomorrow.
Ramires returns from his suspension, which started at the end of last season, but isn't likely to start. Chelsea have brought in Cesc Fabregas to play Ramires' role from last season and Fabregas was fantastic in Chelsea's first match. Ramires will be used off the bench this year so it's unlikely he turns into a good fantasy option in any format. Aug 22 - 7:28 PM

Chelsea midfielder Ramires is suspended for the first Premier League match due to violent conduct last year.

Ramires was caught on camera last season throwing an arm at Sunderland's Sebastian Larsson and was later suspended for four matches. He has served three of them already during last season but one more remains to be served when Chelsea face Burnley in week one. Ramires is likely going to be featured off the bench this season as Chelsea have brought in Cesc Fabregas to replace him.

Jose Mourinho has stated that midfielder Ramires is not for sale despite Chelsea signing Cesc Fabregas.

We anticipate that Chelsea's best midfield will consist of Nemanja Matic, Fabregas, Oscar, Willian, and Eden Hazard but Ramires can play a multitude of positions and will be the number one backup should any of those players go down. Chelsea competed in a number of different competitions and the busy schedule will require players like Ramires being involved often. Ramires shouldn't be a fantasy option at the start of the season but if Chelsea's midfield suffers injuries, he can be a good option.

Ramires was caught on video throwing an arm at Sunderland's Sebastian Larsson. It was missed by the referee, but the FA has charged him with violent conduct, and he accepted the charge and will miss the next four matches for Chelsea (carrying over to next season).

Ramires, and the rest of the Chelsea squad are presumably focused on their Champions League second leg next week, but it's hard to see Mourinho just rolling over for a rival. Regardless, Ramires joins the likes of John Terry, Frank Lampard, and Petr Cech on the sidelines.

Chelsea midfielder Ramires is set to return to the Blues squad after serving a three match ban for a nasty challenge on Karim El Ahmadi a month ago.

Ramires hasn't played much lately as he also served a one match ban in the Champions League due to an accumulation of yellow cards. What's even worse for Ramires is that he has 9 yellow cards on the season, meaning that he will have to serve a one match ban if he picks up a yellow on Sunday. The midfielder is known for his reckless tackling and he'll need to be overly cautious in this one.

Ramires was sent off late for a nasty stamp on Aston Villa's Karim El Ahmadi. It was a straight red and will see him miss Chelsea's next three matches.

Ramires was visibly frustrated as Chelsea lost control of the match after Willian's earlier dismissal. He was running with the ball up the sideline at the death and left a foot in on El Ahmadi after the ball ran out ahead of him. Villa were well worth their 1-0 victory, holding a successful high defensive line for much of the match, and then taking their chance with Chelsea down to 10 (and eventually 9) men.

Ramires is set to return to Chelsea's lineup after missing the game against Liverpool with a one game ban for accumulated yellow cards.

With Frank Lampard injured in the Liverpool match, Ramires is almost guaranteed to start against Southampton on New Years Day. Chelsea's schedule is not as congested anymore and with Ramires rested right now, he will almost certainly play every game in the near future as long as he is healthy.

Chelsea midfielder Ramires will serve a one match ban against Liverpool for having received his fifth yellow card of the season on Boxing Day.

Ramires has been one of the constants for Chelsea this season and his energy will be missed against tough opposition. Frank Lampard and John Obi Mikel are almost certain to start on Sunday and Lampard will make for an interesting fantasy option.

Ramires always brings a little bit of everything to the Blues midfield and in Week 16 he brought a match winning goal against Crystal Palace.

The Brazilian midfielder scored the winner from distance and should have had a second to put the match out of reach but he flubbed a shot/pass in alone on Palace goalkeeper Julian Speroni. Ramires' winner came after Fernando Torres latched on to a rebounded Willian shot to give Jose Mourinho's men an early lead. Marouane Chamakh equalized but Ramires ensured that Chelsea capitalized on Arsenal's loss to Manchester City earlier in the day.

Chelsea midfielder Ramires has dismissed rumors about a move to Real Madrid and says he enjoys playing for the Blues.

Ramires added that he hopes to play for Cruzeiro, his former Brazilian club, before he ends his career. Don't read too much into it, as the Brazil international seems determined in trying to help Chelsea win titles and it's unlikely Mourinho will sell one of his main contributors. Ramires is one of only four Chelsea players to have started all eleven Premier League games this season and you can expect the trend to continue.

Ramires scored twice to help Chelsea to a 4-0 win over Steaua Bucharest in their second Champions League match of the season.

Chelsea were the much better team on the night and many of their players played extremely well. Ramires happened to be the one to score the goals, but it could have been anyone. Ramires hasn't been extremely productive in fantasy in the Premier League so go with a more proven option.

Chelsea midfielder Ramires has been selected for Chelsea's squad for tomorrow's match against Tottenham but may not be ready for action.

Mourino said he hopes Ramires can play but also that the recovery process is going slowly. Ramires did not train with the team and might not be ready for action tomorrow. Chelsea play early tomorrow so you can get the starting lineups on Twitter before you finalize your lineup. As a reminder, Marco Van Ginkel is out for the season with an ACL tear.

Chelsea midfielder Ramires suffered a "muscular injury at the top of the hip in the glut area" and is doubtful for Saturday's match against Tottenham.

Ramires suffered the injury after coming on for also injured Marco Van Ginkel in Chelsea's Capital One Cup win over Swindon Town; he also scored a goal during his time on the pitch. Ramires is a player who has started regularly for Chelsea and has played well but the Blues have depth at the position and shouldn't have trouble replacing him. Possible replacements are Frank Lampard, John Obi Mikel and Michael Essien. Michael Essien started the match as Chelsea's captain against Swindon today.

Chelsea midfielder Ramires was sent off during the UEFA Super Cup match against Bayern Munich for receiving a second yellow card in the 85' minute.

Ramires has started all Chelsea games so far this season next to Frank Lampard and seems to have a good hold of the starting spot. The red card should prevent him from playing in the next one or two European matches, but that shouldn't decrease his Premier League value. If anything, Ramires will be rested and more likely to play in Premier League games.

Benitez is interested in bringing Chelsea midfielder Ramires with him to Napoli.

Ramires is caught in a congested Chelsea midfield and it wouldn't be surprising to see him go, especially if Chelsea get a fair offer. I'm also not certain if Ramires fits into Mourinho's style of play. If Ramires leaves, expect more playing time from the aging Lampard, Essien on the defensive side and Chelsea's midfield trio of Schurrle, Hazard, and Mata going forward.
