The 33-year-old has missed the club’s last three matches after picking up a knee injury and will be a welcome return alongside Gary Cahill in central defence.
The English pairing have arguably been the best partnership in the entire division, as the Blues’ 21 goals conceded is the best record in the top tier.
Terry has been enjoying a run back in the first team under Mourinho after being used much more sparingly last season when Rafael Benitez was in charge.
With the skipper in the side the west London club have kept 17 clean-sheets in all competitions and the defender has made 31 appearances in total.
Terry is now the longest serving player at Stamford Bridge and is the only product of their youth system in the entire squad, having broken into the first team in 1998.
Since then the former England international has played 569 games for the club, winning the league title three times, the FA Cup five times, the League Cup twice, the Europa League and the Champions League.
