John Terry has been ruled out of Chelsea’s crucial Champions League match with Paris Saint-Germain on Wednesday evening due to a hamstring injury, according to The Daily Mirror.
The news has disgruntled the Blues supporting punters here in the Transfer Tavern, who were looking forward to seeing their captain back in action following his most recent lay off.
Blues boss Guus Hiddink confirmed the news to the media following Saturday’s 1-1 draw against Stoke City at Stamford Bridge and deals the Dutch boss with a lousy hand ahead of such a crucial game.
Chelsea are trailing the Parisians 2-1 following the first leg in the French capital and with the club unlikely to make the top four of the Premier League, winning the Champions League looks likely to be their one shot at returning to the competition next season.
One Blues supporter is playing darts with his mate in the Tavern and thinks the club have been doing okay in recent weeks without Terry, but would still have liked the ex-England captain in contention for this game.
Chelsea fans… Can you beat PSG minus Terry? Who would you play in his absence?
