London: John Terry has been named in Chelsea's squad for Saturday's Premier League game at Stoke City, having made his comeback from a two-month injury lay-off in a game for the club's under-21s.

Terry made a 45-minute appearance against Fulham's under-21s at Chelsea's training ground on Thursday, in his first competitive appearance since damaging knee ligaments in a game against Liverpool on November 11.

Interim manager Rafael Benitez confirmed on Friday that his captain would return to the squad for the trip to Stoke, but said that the 32-year-old would not start the game.
