Terry poised for return

John Terry is set for his first action since the match against Swansea on January 31 after undergoing surgery on his injured knee.

The Chelsea captain was on the bench for the midweek victory against Birmingham in the FA Cup but did not take part but has trained well this week.

Ashley Cole has recovered from the heel injury he sustained against West Brom last week and interim coach Roberto di Matteo reported a full squad available for tomorrow’s visit of Stoke.

Provisional squad: Cech, Ivanovic, Luiz, Terry, Cahill, Bertrand, Ramires, Lampard, Mikel, Meireles, Kalou, Sturridge, Torres, Mata, Essien, Hilario, Drogba, Lukaku, Bosingwa, Turnbull.
