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. Oct 13 - 7:01 PM

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.

John Terry’s season and potentially his Chelsea career is over after the skipper was sent off during the dying moments at the Stadium of Light on Saturday.

Terry received his marching orders against Sunderland and because he was sent off earlier in the season at West Brom - he will receive an additional game ruling him out of the midweek trip to Anfield and next Sundays’ visit of Champions Leicester City. The 35-year-old didn’t pick up his first caution until the 88th minute, but referee Mike Jones added a second soon after, for a mistimed lunge on Wahbi Khazri. Speaking to the BBC, Guus Hiddink felt his dismissal "was a little bit over the top" and his decision was "impulsive".
May 7 - 1:15 PM

Guus Hiddink hinted at changes during Fridays’ media briefing but while the absence of Willian came as no surprise – late return from international duty – John Terry and Gary Cahill missing from the squad did.

Post-match the Dutchman confirmed Terry had missed out due to a minor Achilles problem. Meanwhile, Cahill came back from England duty with a tendon injury even though the defender wasn’t involved in the match versus Holland. "We'll see what happens in the next few days," said Hiddink in response to whether the duo would be available in game week thirty-three. Matt Miazga came in for his debut and the US international could not have wished for a better start to his Chelsea career as the Blues cruised to a comfortable 4-0 win.

Graziano Pelle has backed Antonio Conte for the Chelsea coaching job.

Rumors have put Antonio Conte in Chelsea's permanent coaching job at the end of the season and Southampton forward Graziano Pelle thinks he'll be a great choice. Pelle knows Conte from his time playing with the Italy national teams and this may be his attempt at getting more playing time in the national squad. Either way, this reinforces the idea that Conte will coach Chelsea next season.

John Terry has taken to Instagram to confirm that he is not fit enough to face Paris Saint-Germain in the Champions League on Wednesday night.

The Chelsea skipper announced: "I'm gutted to be missing the PSG game. It's so frustrating missing any game, but these big Champions League nights at the Bridge are unbelievable and it hurts as a player not to be involved. I have thrown everything at my injury trying to get back fit but sometimes you have to let the injury settle, and thankfully I'm on the mend and hope to be back soon." However, there was better news regarding Pedro Rodriguez and Diego Costa who are expected to return for the second leg tie: "Pedro did well working with the physios and he made a good impression today so he will be back in the squad," Guus Hiddink said. Meanwhile, Costa is also well placed for a return: "He had a little bit of problem in the weekend. He was in training today so we will see."

John Terry will re-join his teammates in training on Tuesday after missing the last two games due to a minor hamstring strain.

Terry didn't travel to Paris last week in the Champions League after the skipper was assessed in training following his early withdrawal against Newcastle: ‘It was not good,’ said Guus Hiddink and the situation hadn’t improved sufficiently ahead of the FA Cup tie with Man City: ‘I saw him this morning. He worked with the physios and he tried to do a bit on the pitch but, he has too many issues to be fit.’ However, the latest reports confirm that Terry will be available to face Southampton although the words ‘cannot predict’ and ‘we must be careful’ suggest that Hiddink is not prepared to take any unnecessary risks with his captain.
