Terry was expected to be out for a while longer after a knee injury but was an unused substitute in Chelsea’s 2-0 FA Cup win over Birmingham City on Tuesday evening. Terry watched on as goals from Juan Mata and Raul Meireles confirmed Chelsea’s place in the FA Cup quarter-finals, where they will play Leicester City later this month.
