John Terry set for Chelsea return against Stoke City
Chelsea have been coping reasonably well since John Terry was injured during a Premier League clash against Liverpool, although the Blues captain could be set to play some part at the Britannia Stadium on Saturday.

Terry collided with Luis Suarez on 11 November and left Stamford Bridge on crutches, although the 32-year-old is now back in training and Rafael Benitez admits that he could yet line up for a tough match against Stoke City.
“John Terry has been training and we are considering playing him on Thursday with the Under-21 team,” the Spaniard said.
“The good thing he is now training so now he can carry on. We will see how he feels on Thursday and hopefully he can play more minutes in the short-term so we will see.
“At least that is a positive thing because before he was just doing the warm-up. Now he is training and can play so I think we are obviously closer.”
Asked if he could be involved against Stoke, he added: “It depends on his reaction. Obviously Thursday will be a different kind of game but we will see how he feels.
“If he can feel okay and train the day after, at least we can start considering him as an option.”
