Di Matteo hoping for good news on Terry


Chelsea manager Roberto Di Matteo was left desperately hoping a knee injury suffered by John Terry in the 1-1 draw with Liverpool is not as serious as it appeared.

Terry, back from a four-match ban, marked his return to action by putting the Blues ahead midway through the first half at Stamford Bridge.

But he was later stretchered off following an accidental collision with Liverpool striker Luis Suarez.

The Chelsea skipper is due to have an MRI scan on Monday amid fears he could be facing a lengthy spell on the sidelines.

“We’ll have to wait until he has the scan to understand the full extent of it,” said Di Matteo.

“We’ve just got him back into the team and it was great to see him out there. Hopefully it’s not a serious injury and we’ll have him back very soon.

“He showed the quality and influence he has, so it was a real shame he had to come off. He was playing really well.

“He’s in pain now but we hope it’s not serious. We’ll know more tomorrow.”
