Captain John Terry is in Chelsea's squad for Saturday's Barclays Premier League game at Stoke, but will not start.

Terry has been out since November due to knee ligament damage he suffered against Liverpool, but the defender came through 45 minutes of the Blues' Under-21 game against Fulham yesterday and will be on the bench.

Goalkeeper Petr Cech will have a test on his groin injury, while Nigeria duo John Obi Mikel and Victor Moses are unavailable as they are at the African Nations Cup.

Stoke boss Tony Pulis has no fresh injury concerns ahead of the clash at the Britannia Stadium.

Defender Marc Wilson and midfielder Rory Delap, who have been sidelined by a broken leg and hernia problem respectively, remain the only definite absentees for the Potters.

Pulis is expected to shuffle his pack again after making changes for last weekend's 0-0 FA Cup third round draw at Crystal Palace, where the likes of goalkeeper Asmir Begovic and striker Kenwyne Jones were rested.

Teams

Stoke (from): Begovic, Shotton, Shawcross, Cameron, Huth, Upson, Wilkinson, Whelan, Nzonzi, Walters, Kightly, Etherington, Jones, Sorensen, Whitehead, Crouch, Jerome, Adam, Palacios, Owen.

Chelsea (from): Turnbull, Cech, Azpilicueta, Ferreira, Ivanovic, Luiz, Cahill, Terry, Cole, Bertrand, Lampard, Ramires, Mata, Oscar, Hazard, Marin, Piazon, Torres, Ba, Hilario.
