The English defender earned his last Premier League start in September and also featured in the last round of the FA Cup against Brentford, and it seems now that the Blues legend will decide upon his future at Chelsea at the end of the season after an incredible 20-year spell at Stamford Bridge.

Conte said: “John is working very well – I’m pleased with his work during the training sessions. He’s in good form.”

“This [Wolves game] could be a good solution for me to pick him and to start to play him. I’m pleased for his attitude, for his behaviour, for his work-rate. He’s showing me he is a great footballer but, above all, a great person. I’m pleased for this.”

“He doesn’t start, he’s not happy — not only John but Cesc Fabregas, Pedro… and I don’t want them to be happy [if they are not starting], because I want the player to put me under pressure.”

“The FA Cup is a great competition.”
