Terry injured as Blues draw a blank

Published Add your comment

Chelsea´s season continues to flirt with disaster as they lost captain John Terry with a suspected fractured cheekbone and had Didier Drogba sent off in their goalless draw with Fulham.

Terry was substituted at half-time after a clash of heads with Clint Dempsey in the opening few minutes and, if the injury is confirmed, it will rule him out of England´s Euro 2008 qualifiers with Estonia and Russia next month.

Drogba was dismissed for a second bookable offence in the 73rd minute. Both sides had plenty of chances but poor finishing meant the game ended all square with Chelsea failing to score in the league for the fourth game running and booed off at the end.
