Terry back to face Liverpool

John Terry will make his return from his racism ban in Chelsea’s Premier League clash with Liverpool today.

Blues boss Roberto Di Matteo has recalled his captain for this afternoon’s clash, partnering him with Branislav Ivanovic in central defence, with Cesar Azpilicueta returning at right-back.

David Luiz tweeted he misses today's game because of tonilitis.

Jose Reina has failed a late fitness test for Liverpool, who recalled virtually all of their big guns after Thursday’s Europa League defeat at Anzhi Makhachkala, although Jamie Carragher keeps his place, while Glen Johnson returns from injury.
