Terry likens Matic to former Chelsea favourite

Chelsea skipper John Terry has hailed the impact of Nemanja Matic this season.

Matic re-signed for Chelsea in January and has been a brilliant foil to the talent and flair of Cesc Fabregas in the Chelsea midfield, drawing comparisons to for Blues enforcer Claude Makelele.

Terry said: "You look at the exciting days when the manager first came, and Claude Makelele was the master in that position where Matic plays and Matic is very close to that.

"We missed him at Newcastle."
