Terry ruled out of Chelsea's trip to Swansea

Chelsea captain John Terry has been ruled out of tomorrow's away match with Swansea City.

The England centre-half has fluid on his knee following Saturday's FA Cup fourth round win over QPR and will not be available for the Liberty Stadium fixture with the Swans.

"It's just a bone oedema that he has been carrying for some time since he collided with a post, if I am not wrong against Portsmouth, and this stops him a little bit," Blues boss Andre Villas-Boas told Chelsea TV of Terry.

"It's nothing serious, but something to keep an eye on. He has had an MRI before and he should be okay for Man United.

"We have a lot of positions covered of course, because of our squad, we have Gary (Cahill) and David (Luiz) available and competing and hopefully we can make the right decision." Terry joins Brazilian midfielder Ramires, who injured his knee on the weekend, fellow veteran Frank Lampard and John Obi Mikel in the treatment room.
