Terry injury has Chelsea waiting anxiously
Chelsea face an anxious wait on the fitness of John Terry after he departed Stamford Bridge on a stretcher during their Premier League draw against Liverpool.
Terry, 31, had headed Chelsea ahead after 20 minutes before suffering the knee injury during a nasty-looking collision with Liverpool striker Luis Suarez - who later grabbed the equaliser for the visitors in what finished a 1-1 draw.
After the match, manager Roberto Di Matteo revealed Terry will go for a scan on Monday to discover the extent of the injury.
"He has a problem with his knee and will have an MRI scan tomorrow [Monday]," Di Matteo said.
"At the moment we can't say, we'll have to wait for the scan which will tell us the extent of the injury. He is certainly a player that is influential for us. We will miss him.''
The former England captain was making his comeback for Chelsea after completing a four-match ban having been found guilty of racially abusing Anton Ferdinand, but it could be the beginning of a renewed spell on the sidelines.
After going down heavily under Suarez's challenge, Terry signalled to the touchline before receiving treatment and departing the pitch on a stretcher with his head in his hands.
Brazilian defender David Luiz is already sidelines with a bout of tonsillitis, leaving Branislav Ivanovic and Gary Cahill as Roberto Di Matteo's only fit centre-halves.
