Chelsea interim manager Guus Hiddink has given Captain John Terry the green light to to return to action for the Blues in Monday night’s Premier League London derby clash against Tottenham Hotspur.
Terry has been in the limbo for the last six weeks; spending time on the treatment table with hamstring and Achilles problems, but will make an appearance at Stamford Bridge in the next game day Hiddink assured.
There is also the possibility that Gary Cahill could also return to the pitch after taking part in full training this week.
“They have both participated in this week’s training,” Hiddink told reporters in Friday’s press conference. “They are okay to come into the first 18.
“It’s good to have them back, because John was out for a longer period because of injury. Gary a little bit the same.”
The Blues are ninth in the Premier League table, 12 points adrift of a European spot with four games left to play.
Chelsea could throw spanners in the wheels of Tottenham’s title ambitions if they beat Spurs on Monday.
