Chelsea were breathing a sigh of relief on Monday lunchtime after a nasty-looking injury to captain John Terry was found to be less serious than first feared.

The England skipper went down with a right ankle problem during an open training session at Stamford Bridge after blocking a shot, and he had to be helped from the pitch by two physios while suffering some distress.

But after receiving immediate treatment, team physios said Terry had only tweaked his Achilles and he should still be available for Thursday's Barclays Premier League clash with Tottenham.
