Conte confirms double Chelsea absence

John Terry returns for Chelsea at Wolves in the FA Cup on Saturday but David Luiz and Marcos Alonso will not be involved.

Luiz has been playing with a knee injury since December and Alonso has been troubled by pain in his leg for some time.

As a result boss Antonio Conte has confirmed the duo will be rested against the Championship outfit but Terry is set to make a return from an ankle problem.

"All the players are available but for sure there are situations that are better to keep under control," he told reporters.

"For Marcos Alonso, [we want] to give him a bit of rest, also for David Luiz, we have the opportunity to give him a week to recover well and to prepare for the next game.

"His knee is okay. He has improved a lot, if you compare his knee after the game against Manchester City.

"John Terry is fit for this game, he is okay.

"All the players are in good form, I have only the problem to make the best choices for the game."
