Terry back to give Chelsea stability

7:27 am on 22 February 2014

Chelsea football captain John Terry will return for the Premier League leaders at home to Everton on Sunday but fellow defender David Luiz is unfit.

Centre half Terry has been absent for three games and manager Jose Mourinho says he was missed, especially in the 2-0 FA Cup fifth-round defeat at Manchester City last weekend.

Brazilian Luiz has a muscle injury near his pelvis but could be fit for the Champions League last-16 first leg at Galatasaray on Thursday.

Everton, who are 12 points behind Chelsea in sixth place, have not won at Stamford Bridge since 1994 but Mourinho said that was irrelevant.
