Terry sidelined for 10 days

Chelsea have confirmed that veteran defender John Terry will be sidelined for 10 days after suffering strained ligaments in his foot.

The 35-year-old picked up the knock in the final stages of Saturday's 2-2 draw at Swansea, and while Terry managed to finish the game, he left the Liberty Stadium on crutches.

After undergoing a scan, the centre-back posted a comment on his Instagram account, which read: "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."

A brief statement from the Blues announced: "John Terry's injury suffered in Sunday's game at Swansea is strained ligaments in his foot. He will be out for approximately 10 days.

"Our captain was injured in the closing minutes of the 2-2 draw at the Liberty Stadium. He completed the game in pain and Antonio Conte confirmed afterwards the problem would need medical assessment."

Terry will now miss the Premier League clash with Liverpool and the English League Cup tie against Derby County, with David Luiz expected to replace him.
