Chelsea boss Benitez happy to give Terry vital minutes

Chelsea boss Rafa Benitez was happy to give John Terry some minutes for their win over Stoke City.

It was Terry's first game since recovering from serious injury.

"I was trying to give him some minutes to see how he was. I watched him in the reserve team but this is totally different, so we played five at the back and tried to protect him a bit. We will see how he trains and if he has no problems, it is a question of fitness now," said Benitez.
