5 Players Chelsea Can Sign In January

Jose Mourinho Confirms John Terry Injury, Could Miss Tottenham Clash

John Terry is expected to miss Sunday’s clash at White Hart Lane after picking up an ankle injury against Maccabi Tel Aviv. Terry was taken stretchered off during Chelsea’s 4-0 Champions League win against Maccabi Tel-Aviv and the Chelsea skipper is set to have further scans to know the severity of the injury.

Jose Mourinho is waiting to learn the full extent of the damage but even if it not serious, Terry is still like to miss the Spurs clash. “For John to leave the pitch with the result 1-0 I know already that he is in trouble,” Mourinho said. “My medical department is really good. John is a special guy, with a special desire to recover. (But) to leave the pitch with the result 1-0, I don’t believe too much that he can play (against Spurs).”

Chelsea could also be without Ramires, who was absent from the match day squad after suffering an injury in training on Monday, when Chelsea tried to preserve the pitch. “Yesterday we tried to protect [the pitch], we trained just a little bit. But by my surprise Maccabi were training after us, plus the warm-up before the game,” Mourinho said. “The pitch was really bad. Ramires slid and had a muscular injury.”
