Antonio Conte started Chelsea captain John Terry against Wolves in the FA Cup, and he also made seven changes to the team that played Wolves, compared to the two previous FA Cup games where he made nine changes to the starting lineup.

Conte explaining his decision said: “I think John Terry deserved to play this game, he played very well and I am happy for him. For me, he is a very important player, he is my captain and he is important on and off the pitch. He’s helping me a lot and I am very happy to have him in my squad and also to know this type of person.

“If you see our path in the FA Cup, I made nine changes the first game, the second game nine changes. In this match I made seven changes, but I tried to make the best decision to win the game.”
