Chelsea skipper Terry distraught over horror knee injury

Chelsea skipper John Terry faces an injury scan today on his knee injury.

The distraught Blues captain was due to undergo an MRI scan after leaving Stamford Bridge on crutches and with a brace on his right knee following Sunday's 1-1 Barclays Premier League draw with Liverpool.

Terry was left writhing in distress 10 minutes before half-time after Luis Suarez fell on his leg following an accidental collision between the pair.

Following almost five minutes' treatment, he was carried off on a stretcher with his head in his hands and was attended to by club medics before being allowed home.

Sunday's match was the 31-year-old's first domestic appearance since his four-match racism ban.

Manager Roberto Di Matteo said: "We have to wait until tomorrow for his MRI scan to understand the full extent.

"When a player reacts like that, it's a concern. He's in pain now. He'll go to hospital tomorrow for a scan.

"We hope it's not a serious injury, but we'll see."

Terry was consoled by Di Matteo before disappearing down the tunnel.

"I was concerned about his well-being," the Italian added.

"We just got him back into the team after the ban. It was great seeing him out there."
