LONDON: Chelsea will be without captain John Terry for today’s Premier League match at home to relegation-threatened Wigan Athletic with the centre back suffering from an inflamed knee, manager Rafael Benitez said.
“It’s a setback, but not serious,” Benitez told reporters yesterday.
The former England skipper has been dogged by a knee problem this season, returning to action in January after two months out.
Benitez said their Czech Republic goalkeeper Petr Cech and Senegal striker Demba Ba were both available after pulling out of midweek internationals through injury.
Ba suffered a broken nose in the 3-2 league defeat at his former club Newcastle United last weekend and has been training in a protective mask. REUTERS
