Chelsea will be away at Wolves in the fifth round of the FA Cup, and Chelsea manager Antonio Conte is willing to hand out rests to the senior players and give the fringe players game time.

The Italian also revealed that Chelsea captain John Terry is available to play. The Blues captain has been away from the first team due to a nasty hole in his leg which he suffered in training.

Speaking in his pre-match press conference ahead of the Wolves game, Conte said: “Yes John Terry is fit for this game, he’s okay.

“All the players are available but there are situations which are better to keep under control. Marcos Alonso needs a bit of rest, and with David Luiz we have an opportunity to give him a full week to recover well. All the players are in good form and the only problem I have is making the best choices for the game.”
