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.

Chelsea will be without its captain after John Terry ruled himself out of tonight's showdown at Paris Saint-Germain due to a hamstring injury.

Terry suffered the injury, which Guus Hiddink called "minor," in the first half against Newcastle on Saturday. After training on Monday, Hiddink said the defender could not work back to match fitness: "It was not a decision made by me...He was, himself, also convinced he could not be of worth to the team at the moment. He has a bit of a problem on his hamstring and on the tendon in that area. That's why we had the test this morning and we decided he would not participate." Instead of Terry, Matt Miazga and academy defender Jake Clarke-Salter traveled with the squad and could make their debut.

John Terry suffered a muscular injury in Chelsea's huge win over Newcastle today and is questionable for the upcoming match against Paris Saint-Germain.

Terry suffered the injury early in the match but played through it for a period of time before signaling to be subbed off. The fact he was able to continue for several minutes makes us think this may not be a serious injury, but we won't know until later in the week. Chelsea face PSG on Tuesday and if Terry can't go, Branislav Ivanovic is likely to move to center-back once again.

Chelsea will say farewell to one of its biggest club legends at the end of the season after John Terry confimred he will leave the club in the summer.

That is, unless the club pull a U-turn in the fallout from the news that it declined to renew his contract and offer the captain a one-year contract just like it did for Branislav Ivanovic. But Terry said he will likely continue his career abroad: "Ideally I would have loved to stay, but the club's moving in a different direction. I couldn't play for another Premier League club. It will be elsewhere for sure. I feel as though I'm in great nick, I'm playing great and I've got a couple of years to go." However, Chelsea appear to have a bright future at the center-back position with Kurt Zouma taking on more responsibility along with the signing of New York Red Bulls defender Matt Miazga.

The Chelsea defense presents a good fantasy investment at the moment as they've improved drastically under Guus Hiddink.

The Chelsea defenders are generally cheaper than they were at the beginning of the season and many managers are willing to sell at a discount right now. John Terry and Kurt Zouma have a good partnership in the back and Ivanovic has improved slightly as the season has progressed. Chelsea showed their potential in the last match by controlling the game for 60% of the time and there is upside to be had here with some of their defenders. Don't be afraid to buy at a discount, especially with some light fixtures sprinkled in ahead.

John Terry and Ramires will return to Chelsea's squad for their upcoming match in the UEFA Champions League this week.

The duo was injured for Chelsea's loss to Bournemouth this past weekend but it seems both Terry and Ramires will be fit enough for the midweek match. If they are even in the squad for the Champions League game, they should be healthy enough for a start over the weekend. Neither makes for a good fantasy choice at the moment, but Terry is worth holding onto in really deep leagues.

John Terry has been ruled out for gameweek 15 with an ankle injury.

Terry Terry was struggling to be fit for the weekend Jose Mourinho will keep him on the bench. Gary Cahill and Kurt Zouma will likely start at center-back and are viable options as punt plays in fantasy, mainly in leagues that focus on clean sheets.
