John Terry: Back in action after collision with Luis Suarez during draw with Liv

Terry played for 45 minutes in the U21 fixture with Fulham on Thursday night, his first taste of action since he sustained a ligament strain in a collision with Luis Suarez during the 1-1 draw with Liverpool on 11th November.

The 32-year-old returned to training a couple of weeks ago and the U21 game gave the defender a chance to sharpen up his match fitness.

Chelsea interim manager Rafael Benitez has already claimed the centre-back is likely to be considered for a place in the team to play at Stoke on Saturday.

"It depends on his reaction. Obviously Thursday will be a different kind of game but we will see how he feels," Benitez said earlier this week.

"If he can feel okay and train the day after, at least we can start considering him as an option."

was there, it was embarrassing - the team looked totally unbalanced from the off, the defence was woeful and when Mikel came off injured it got even worse with nobody in front of them. Up front on several occasions we had opportunities and nobody would shoot - it was a complete farse! On the back of Salah's performance I'm glad there is talk of getting shot...

reat to see Tommy Rosicky getting some love. A wonderful player. Such a pity we lost so long to injury. I was so excited when we signed him, this resurgence only makes the absences seem more of a lost opportunity.
