Terry to return for Chelsea

Premier League leaders Chelsea will have captain John Terry available for Saturday’s game against Champions League hopefuls Everton, Sky Sports has reported.

Manager Jose Mourinho confirmed the centre-back is available again after Terry missed Chelsea’s last few games. David Luiz is ruled out with a muscle injury and Mourinho suggested the Brazilian’s absence means Terry will go straight back into the XI.


“'If, one day, we don't have David Luiz and John the situation is more difficult. John being ready keeps our balance,” Mourinho said.


“The captain's armband doesn't mean so much, it's a voice on pitch. To have a player to transmit what I need is important,” the Portuguese continued. “John has a level of performance that gives stability to the team, especially one with lots of young people.”


Chelsea go into the game with a one-point lead over Arsenal at the top of the table, and are two clear of third-place Manchester City. The London Blues meanwhile hold a 12-point advantage over sixth-place Everton but Mourinho insists Roberto Martinez’s Toffees will provide a stern test.


Everton beat Chelsea by a single Steven Naismith goal in the first meeting between the sides this season, coming at Goodison Park in September.


“If we can beat Everton, it is a good weekend for us,” added Mourinho. “If we lose points at home, it's never good.


“It doesn't matter what happened in the past. We think we can beat them because we believe in ourselves.


“Everton are a good team, they defend well and are dangerous on the counter-attack. It's a team with good balance. They are a very good team, playing very well and getting good results. They're in a position that reflects their quality.”
