John Terry is expected to miss the trip to Turf Moor on Sunday after sustaining an ankle injury in training.
The 36-year-old has made just four Premier League starts this term due to a combination of injury and a settled back three which boasts the top flights best defensive record having only conceded 17 times during 2016/17. Terry posted a video of a nasty-looking ankle laceration being stitched which could also keep him out of next weekend’s FA Cup fifth round tie against Wolverhampton Wanderers. His absence from the bench means that Kurt Zouma will become Antonio Conte’s go to should Gary Cahill, Cesar Azpilicueta or David Luiz pick up an injury. Indeed, the Italian manager confirmed only on Friday that the Brazilian was playing with a "little pain" in his knee which the club are monitoring closely. Nathan Ake, recently recalled from his loan spell at Bournemouth, is expected to be included in the match day squad at Burnley as cover. Feb 11 - 4:22 PM

It wasn't the return to action John Terry had planned, but Chelsea still came away with a dominant 4-1 FA Cup win on Sunday.

Against Peterborough United in his 50th FA Cup start, the Chelsea captain made his first appearance for the club in two months following a leg injury. But his night ended early after being sent off in the 67th minute for impeding a goalscoring opportunity, a decision manager Antonio Conte strongly disagreed with in the post-match press conference. But the straight red means that Terry will not be available to face Leicester City this weekend with both Kurt Zouma and the newly-recalled Nathan Ake all fighting for a spot in the team.

John Terry is back in full training with Chelsea but won't feature on Boxing Day against Bournemouth, says manager Antonio Conte.

Conte has ruled Terry out for Monday's match against Bournemouth, despite the skippering making his return to full training last Friday. Terry has been sidelined with a gluteal strain since November but is likely to come back into Conte's squad with the Blues facing a busy festive period. Following their Boxing Day fixture, Chelsea will face Stoke City on Saturday before traveling to White Hart Lane for a clash with Tottenham on January 4th.

Antonio Conte has confirmed that John Terry is still recovering from a muscular problem and as a result will be unavailable for Sunday's fixture with West Brom.

The Chelsea skipper was ruled out for up to three weeks with a gluteus problem at the end of last month and subsequently missed the club's victories over Tottenham and Manchester City. With Terry set to miss his third-straight match through injury, Ola Aina will likely retain his place in Conte's 18-man squad.

John Terry has been ruled out of the London derby against Tottenham on Saturday because of injury.

Antonio Conte confirms the Chelsea skipper has a problem with his glutes, but whether Terry injured himself playing for the Under-23s or in training remains a mystery to the Italian. Terry could miss up-to three weeks although the return of Kurt Zouma will help to soften the blow. The French defender suffered a serious knee injury back in February, but returned to the development side last month where he will remain in the short term to help build fitness: "It's fundamental to find good form and get the idea of our football," said the Chelsea manager. John Obi Mikel will also miss out this weekend but he should be back with the main group next week after suffering from a minor muscular strain in training.

Chelsea is confident that captain John Terry will make his return from injury against Leicester City on Saturday, according to a report in The London Evening Standard.

The report said that Terry seems on course to be available for selection this weekend, which would mark his return from an ankle ligament injury suffered against Swansea on September 15. The report also stated that Antonio Conte had targeted the match at home to Leicester as a possible return for Terry prior to the international break. Terry's return would allow Conte to use a back four or line of three, which would likely see him playing alongside Gary Cahill and David Luiz.

John Terry has returned to training and could be ready to play on Saturday when Chelsea play Hull City.

Terry had missed the Blues' last three matches with an ankle ligament injury, but is set to make his return in GW7. The 34-year-old would be welcomed back to the starting XI after Chelsea conceded five goals over the course of their last two league matches, which saw them suffer a pair of defeats to Liverpool and Arsenal. The skippers' return will allow Antonio Conte to use either a back three or, pair Terry with Gary Cahill, in a back four.

John Terry confirms he suffered a setback in his recovery from an ankle injury ruling him out of the game against Arsenal.

Terry posted an update via Instagram stating that his recovery will take longer than the proposed two-week initial timeline: ‘I can't even put into words how much being injured and missing today's game hurts. I had a small setback during the week but I'm hoping to be back soon ⚽️.’ The Chelsea skipper also added: ‘The bike is horrible,’ beneath a picture of Terry who is sitting on a stationary indoor cycle in what appears to be the club gym. With no European fixtures this season, Chelsea won’t play again until they travel to Hull in game week seven giving the captain another seven days to try and get himself fully fit.

Chelsea manager Antonio Conte announced Saturday's match with Arsenal will come too soon for captain John Terry.

The veteran central defender was hoping to return from an ankle injury sustained two weekends ago after just 10 days, with the Arsenal match in mind, but Conte is hoping to have him back for next week: "John Terry is working hard but he didn’t recover for the game against Arsenal. I don’t know when he will play because it is important what the player feels, and the pain he feels." Without Terry, who missed the Liverpool match and Leicester City cup tie, David Luiz will surely keep his spot in the starting lineup alongside Gary Cahill in defense.

Chelsea will have to do without the services of captain John Terry for Friday's match against Liverpool due to an ankle injury.

The defender confirmed via his official Instagram account that he will not be available for the club for at least the weekend ahead. Wrote Terry: "I have strained my ligaments in my ankle which means I will be out for 10 days. Absolutely gutted, but will be giving everything to get back playing." The former England international picked up the injury in Sunday's 2-2 draw with Swansea City after colliding with Leroy Fer in the final minute of the match.. He was photographed leaving the Liberty Stadium on crutches and in a wrap. Reports across England suggest David Luiz is set to receive his first start since returning to the club on deadline day.

Chelsea faces an anxious wait over the status of defender John Terry after he came away with an injury in a 2-2 draw with Swansea City.

The defender was photographed leaving the Liberty Stadium on crutches with his ankle wrapped after he suffered the knock in the final minute of Sunday's match after being clipped by midfielder Leroy Fer. Said manager Antonio Conte in his post-match interview: "I don't know the extent (of the injury). Tomorrow we'll see the situation about his ankle. He is a warrior. I'm not worried." If Terry doesn't recover in time to be available to face Liverpool this weekend, both David Luiz and Marcos Alonso, who made the bench but didn't enter the match, are waiting in the wings for Conte.

John Terry has given Antonio Conte an injury scare after the Chelsea skipper was forced off during Sunday’s 4-2 victory over German side Werder Bremen.

The 35-year-old was caught on the head late in the second half and Conte was taking no chances, replacing Terry immediately. However, given that Chelsea don't play until Monday August 15, the additional time should ensure that Terry is fully recovered. Defensively, the Blues have struggled throughout the pre-season and despite yesterday’s win, Conte was not impressed with certain aspects: "There were some bad situations to concede two goals which I didn’t like, we must improve a lot, but we were tired. We are working very hard to be ready. It will be difficult. We know we have some problems but we are trying to solve them." Branislav Ivanovic played 90 minutes as he continued his recovery from a dislocated shoulder and the Serbian believes he will be back to full fitness in time for the visit of West Ham.

Chelsea are reportedly interested in defender Kalidou Koulibaly.

Chelsea are obviously shopping this summer after the disappointment of last season and they've already added reinforcement with Michy Batshuayi and N'Golo Kante. They are now trying to reinforce defensively, and with John Terry getting old, they have eyes set on Koulibaly. Koulibaly will likely start and be a solid pick in late rounds of fantasy leagues if he ends up at Chelsea.

Chelsea are reportedly preparing a £24 million bid for Napoli center-back Kalidoi Koulibaly.

Center-back is by far Chelsea's biggest need this summer and they are already in the market for one. New manager Antonio Conte is looking at Koulibaly, but rumors have put multiple center-backs on Chelsea's target list. There is a strong chance that John Terry will be a backup next season, and it's only a matter of time until we see who replaces him in the starting lineup.

Chelsea FC have announced that John Terry has signed a one year contract that will keep the captain at the club through the transition to new manager Antonio Conte.

The much-discussed contract apparently comes at a cost to Terry. The captain is rumored to have accepted a new order of things at the club he has been at for 18 years. He will reportedly accept a pay cut and has acknowledged that he will, in all likelihood, not be a first choice starter. In return, he presumably gets the sort of graceful exit that was not afforded (or maybe interesting) to Frank Lampard. Look for Chelsea to recruit at least one new center back in his prime to replace Terry as the heart and soul of what the new manager will surely want to be a rock solid defense.
