Di Matteo: Chelsea are missing Terry

Published 5 Comments

Roberto Di Matteo admits Chelsea have been missing John Terry after their defensive problems deepened ahead of Saturday's Barclays Premier League game at Swansea.

The European champions were all over the place at the back in Wednesday night's dramatic Capital One Cup win over Manchester United and were hardly any better in Sunday's first league defeat of the season against the same opponents.

"He's obviously been an influential player for us, for sure, and a fantastic defender," Di Matteo said. "When he plays, he's always played very well for us. The other players have done a fantastic job by coming in and playing when they've been in the team but, certainly, JT is a player that we miss."
