Chelsea manager Antonio Conte gave an injury update ahead of the clash against Arsenal.

The Blues are set to face the Gunners at the Emirates Stadium on Saturday and the manager is confident that his squad can overpass the last disappointing home defeat to Liverpool.

When asked if captain John Terry is fully fit for the game or if was anybody else missing Arsenal clash, Conte said: “John Terry did the best to recover but he didn’t recover for the game against Arsenal, is still working a lot but needs time.”

“I don’t know when he will be fit, in this case is important both what the player feels and the pain that he feels”.

It is understood Terry wants to play every gamem but this won’t be a problem for the Italian manager, as he confirmed: “It’s normality, in the team we have 3 central defenders so I have to make a choice, but I think is normal when you are a team like Chelsea. I don’t see any problem”.
