Chelsea Team News: John Terry Back, Branislav Ivanovic Doubtful

John Terry: Better than Gary Cahill.

Chelsea have received some good news on the injury front ahead of their Premier League clash with Tottenham Hotspur on Saturday. A couple of key players are back in full training after missing the City game.

John Terry will be returning for injury for Chelsea this weekend, and he's likely to return to the starting XI. Oriol Romeu is also back in full training for the Blues and could make the 18-man squad for Roberto Di Matteo. Gary Cahill and David Luiz have looked like a competent central defense pairing, but there's an obvious drop-off from Cahill to Terry and Di Matteo will be happy to have his captain back.

The Blues also had some bad news to report. Branislav Ivanovic, who suffered a thigh injury against Manchester City, is doubtful. Even if he's able to make the 18 -- which seems unlikely -- Jose Bosingwa is likely to start the game at right back.
