John Terry is available for Arsenal clash - Roberto Di Matteo

Chelsea manager Roberto Di Matteo insists John Terry can start in Saturday's "big game" against Arsenal after being found guilty of racial abuse by the Football Association.

Terry was given a four-match ban and fined £220,000 for racially abusing QPR's Anton Ferdinand during a match last October, but the ban and fine will not come into effect until after the centre-half has decided whether or not to appeal the decision.

Di Matteo says his skipper is "available" for the clash at the Emirates.
