John Terry, Chelsea FC

Arsenal v Chelsea

Chelsea captain John Terry is eligible to make his first appearance for the Blues since being found guilty after a FA hearing of using racially abusive language towards Queens Park Rangers’ Anton Ferdinand. Terry was given 14 days to lodge an appeal against his four-game ban and £220,000 fine.

Chelsea boss, Roberto di Matteo had praise for Terry in advance of the clash with Arsenal.

“Yes, of course I’ve spoken to him,” Di Matteo told a news conference on Friday. “I do on a regular basis with my players and he’s available for the game tomorrow. But I’m not going to tell you my team.

“It’s taken a long time and the only thing we can do is just wait and see what happens. I think everybody would have liked it to be a bit quicker.

“He’s going to be available and from our point of view there are no changes.

“He’s a professional player, he’s a senior player as well. He’s got all the experience in the world to be able to deal with a big game.

“He likes to focus on the football and that’s all I have to be concerned about.

“He’s a professional and that’s how he behaves when he’s here with us. His application is very good every day and he tries his hardest when he plays.”

“When I have conversation with my players they remain private,” said Di Matteo. “He trained today, hard as always. He’s an experienced player.

“He’s played many games before, difficult games under difficult circumstances so if selected it won’t be a problem

“He’s only missed a couple of days so he hasn’t missed that much training so I don’t think his fitness is a problem.”

Terry retired from England duty before the hearing.

“I know that John loved playing for England, it was his childhood dream,” he added. “It was a very difficult decision to take.

“It certainly increases the chance to play maybe a little bit longer when you don’t play internationally.”
