Chelsea captain Terry to miss Man City match

Chelsea will be without captain John Terry when they face Manchester City on Wednesday after the defender was ruled out of action with a calf injury, the Belfast Telegraph has confirmed.

The newspaper adds that Terry’s latest injury is not connected to the knee injury that left the player on the side lines for the tail end of Andre Villas-Boas’ reign at Stamford Bridge, and is expected to clear up in time for Terry to return to the starting line-up for the weekend match with Tottenham Hotspur.

In Terry’s absence Chelsea interim manager Roberto Di Matteo will be faced with the decision of which two from David Luiz, Gary Cahill and Branislav Ivanovic to select at the heart of his defence against title-chasing City, while Frank Lampard will wear the captain’s armband should he play. If the midfielder misses out then goalkeeper Petr Cech will lead the side again, as he did against Leicester City in the FA Cup on Sunday.
