Chelsea captain John Terry will be fit enough to skipper the side against Tottenham on Thursday, The
Terry picked up what looked like a serious knee injury against Wigan on Saturday and sparked fears over whether he would be fit to face Spurs. Chelsea must win at White Hart Lane or face the possibility of slipping further away from the title race. The England international is vital for the Blues and an injury to him would seriously derail ambitions of winning the Premier League.
Manager Andre Villas-Boas insists that the Blues captain will fight through the pain barrier to play for Chelsea. Villas-Boas also revealed that Ramires and David Luiz should be back for the game against the North Londoners.
Villas-Boas said: ‘John Terry took a painful knock, but he seems OK now. Even if he is limping I think he will be fine for the next game. Ramires should be fine as well. He’s progressing and will be able to play, and maybe David Luiz too. We go there with our confidence unaffected. It’s a pity we didn’t win at Wigan as it would have given a different perspective to our position in the table, but we’ve maintained our unbeaten run.’
