Chelsea captain John Terry will be sidelined for about three weeks after injuring his knee against Liverpool last weekend.

London – Chelsea captain John Terry will be sidelined for about three weeks after injuring his knee against Liverpool last weekend, Blues coach Roberto Di Matteo revealed on Friday.

The former England defender had to be stretchered off after Liverpool striker Luis Suarez landed awkwardly on him during the 1-1 draw at Stamford Bridge. But scans revealed the damage was not as bad as feared.

“With JT, we're looking at approximately three weeks,” Di Matteo said. “Fortunately, it's not as bad as we first thought. It's an MCL (medial cruciate ligament) strain.”
