Chelsea boss Mourinho says Terry absence not serious

Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho played down John Terry's absence for their win over Newcastle United.

Terry missed his first Premier League minutes of the season as a precaution due to a muscular strain but could be back for Tuesday's match at West Brom.

"It's not an injury, it's almost an injury," said Mourinho, who revealed Fernando Torres could also play at West Brom.

"We decided not to risk and to protect him. Normally he's ready for Tuesday."
