John Terry has dealt Chelsea a major injury scare after revealing he has cracked two ribs and is struggling to breathe during games.
Terry was to undergo a scan after coming off an hour into Wednesday night's Champions League quarter-final second leg against Benfica, a game in which he said he was gasping for air due to the injury sustained in the first leg last week.
The 31-year-old insisted he is determined to play through the pain as Chelsea face a tough run of games, but warned: "I was having a difficult time out there, especially in the first half. I thought it was okay but later in the second half, it just seemed to be getting worse and I was struggling to breathe. Hopefully, I'll be okay."
