John Terry is out of Chelsea’s Friday Night Football clash at home to Liverpool with strained ligaments in his foot, and will be sidelined for 10 days, Skysport reports.
Terry, 35, collided with Swansea’s Leroy Fer in the final minutes of Chelsea’s 2-2 draw at the Liberty Stadium in the Premier League on Sunday and the club has now confirmed his injury.
The centre-back left the stadium on crutches and took to Instagram to post pictures and videos of the swelling on his ankle and the treatment he was undergoing.
With Terry ruled out, David Luiz could be in line to make his second debut for the Blues after returning to the club on Deadline Day for £30m.
Terry’s absence means he will also miss Chelsea’s EFL Cup fixture away to Leicester City on September 20, but could be fit to return to Premier League action on September 24 against Arsenal.
