Chelsea FC news: Antonio Conte confirms John Terry back in squad for visit of Premier League champions Leicester

John Terry is poised to return to the Chelsea side for their crunch Premier League clash with Leicester City.

Blues boss Antonio Conte has confirmed his skipper is fit again after a week of training and is in the squad to face the champions.

The Italian coach revealed: “Yes he is available because he came back to the training session in the middle of the week. He has recovered from his injury.”

Defender Terry has not played since damaging an ankle in the 2-2 draw at Swansea on September 11.

Chelsea have since suffered big league defeats to both Arsenal and Liverpool, but Conte refused to revealed if the 35-year-old will start.

“For the line up I prefer not to give that away,” Conte commented. “I will try to make the best decision for the team.”
