Di Matteo admits Chelsea missing Terry influence

Chelsea boss Roberto di Matteo admits they're missing skipper John Terry.

Terry's absence due to suspension and injury has coincided in Chelsea's form slump.

Di Matteo said: "Of course we miss John (Terry). He is an important player for us.

"He gives us a lot of confidence at the back and in general to the team.

"It's a shame that he is injured - but we will have to do without him until he comes back - and improve."
