John Terry has escaped a lengthy injury lay-off after Chelsea confirmed he had suffered "no significant damage" to his knee ligaments in their Barclays Premier League draw with Liverpool.

The European champions announced captain Terry would be sidelined for "weeks rather than months" following an MRI scan on the injury that forced him off during Sunday's game at Stamford Bridge.

Chelsea posted on their official Twitter feed: "MRI Scans reveal no significant damage to John Terry's cruciate ligaments. He will be out weeks rather than months."
